Automotive Electric Drivetrain Market Overview


The global Automotive Electric Drivetrain System market size was valued at $71.86 billion in 2020, and it is expected to reach $256 billion by the end of 2023. It will register a CAGR of 5.98% in the forecast period. Electric vehicles are the future of the automotive market because of the scarcity of natural sources. These vehicles have huge demand globally because they offer improved environmental benefits and lower the cost. Many countries are taking the initiative for the use of electric vehicles. In the last few decades, the automotive industry has focused on using the same internal powertrain engine. But now, the industry is shifting towards the adoption of electric vehicles and other environment-friendly transportation. 


The drivetrain is a vital part of a vehicle, so the Automotive Electric Drivetrain System market growth is automatically associated with the increasing production of automobiles. The components of the Automotive Drivetrain include axles, CV joints, shafts, wheels, and transmission. Apart from that, advanced drivetrain technology offers many benefits, such as improved vehicle performance and enhanced fuel economy. So the adoption of electric vehicles will play a big part in the market growth. All the parts in the drivetrain are responsible for giving transmission to move the wheels of the vehicles forward.  


A vehicle's drivetrain is also called a powertrain, as it gives power to the wheels to move. But the only difference is the powertrain includes a whole system that offers power to the wheels. The drivetrain involves a component that only links the wheel and driveline for better efficiency and eco-friendliness. The rapid adoption of electric vehicles is determined by various factors such as infrastructure, consumer preference, regulations, and technology. The regulation and policies to prevent the emission of CO2 are becoming more popular day by day, especially in the developed regions. Europe has set regulations, and the co2 limit is 85 g/km by 2020, and it is targeting to reduce the emission to 37.5% by 2030. Apart from that, North America has also set the emission limit to 99g/km by 2025. So all these factors playing a supportive role in the Automotive Electric Drivetrain System market growth. 


Covid-19 analysis


The spread of coronavirus caused pandemics worldwide, resulting in a global economic slowdown across the world. Lockdown was implemented in various parts of the world as it caused disruptions of supply chains and affected the production work. Due to this, the automotive market was highly affected.
