Automotive Powertrain Systems Market Trends




  • All-wheel drive to boost market growth




Power from the all-wheel-drive system is sent to all the wheels in order to improve the traction and control of the car. Particularly while turning, the system distributes the torque evenly to all four wheels, providing the car with better traction and grip. The recent introduction of the all-wheel drive (AWD) system in compact passenger cars and hybrid vehicles has contributed to the expansion of the market under investigation. This technology was formerly exclusive to luxury cars. The demand for premium and high-end cars in the Asia-Pacific automotive all-wheel-drive market has expanded due to rising consumer spending in emerging markets like China and Japan. Improved safety, stability, fuel efficiency, and driving control are a few more advantages that may accelerate the automotive powertrain systems market's expansion for automobiles with all-wheel drive.


Additionally, many manufacturers are expected to enter this thriving market in India, including Audi, Honda, Mercedes-Benz, Toyota, Hyundai, and BMW. Although there are few sport utility vehicles with all-wheel drive systems on the road, that might change shortly. Due to increased sales and interest, the segment for all-wheel drive sports utility vehicles may see the fastest growth rate. Therefore, such all-wheel drive has enhanced the market CAGR across the globe in recent years.


Within the anticipated time frame, the market expansion for automotive power trains is anticipated to be supported by consumers' growing choice for high-performance automobiles with larger engines and better torque output. Given the diversification of the powertrain range to include electric and hybrid powertrains, the introduction of an automatic transmission is also anticipated to propel the growth of the entire market. The automobile industry is shifting its focus to developing electric and autonomous vehicles. Hence, the high demand for high-performance automobiles is another factor driving the growth of the automotive powertrain systems market revenue.


Automotive Powertrain Systems Market Segment Insights:


Automotive Powertrain Systems Component Insights


The global automotive powertrain systems market segmentation, based on component, includes engine, transmission, differentials, drive shafts, and others. The engine segment held the majority share in 2021 regarding the global automotive powertrain systems market revenue. A car's powertrain comprises the engine and its internal parts, including the transmission, driveshaft, and energy storage system. In a traditional internal combustion engine (ICE), the powertrain transforms the stored energy from gasoline or diesel into kinetic energy in the engine. It delivers torque to the vehicle's wheels through the gearbox, driveshaft, and differential. Further, the fastest-growing segment in the automotive powertrain systems industry is the transmission.


November 2022: The parent business of the MTA E-Mobility (MTA EV), MT Autocraft, and the Korean technological giant EMTC has formed a joint venture (JV) to produce automated powertrain for electric two-wheelers and three-wheelers.


May 2022: Magna has begun producing its mild hybrid gearbox for the BMW Group as part of its rapid transition to electric mobility. The BMW Group's small class, which supports its front-transverse cars, now exclusively offers Magna's newest 7-speed mild hybrid dual-clutch gearbox.


Automotive Powertrain Systems Engine Type Insights


The global automotive powertrain systems market data has been bifurcated by engine type into gasoline and diesel. The gasoline segment dominated the market in 2021 and is projected to be the faster-growing segment during the forecast period, 2022-2030. Instead of the compression-ignited engines used in diesel vehicles, gasoline cars generally use spark-ignited internal combustion engines. The fuel is fed into the combustion chamber and mixed with air in a spark-ignited mechanism. A spark from the spark plug ignites the combination of gasoline and air. Hence, the gasoline segment positively impacts the market growth.


December 2022:  Bosch is consistently enhancing its line of powertrain products. Bosch provides battery-electric and fuel-cell powertrains and diesel engines, which will continue to be important in commercial vehicles for a while. This has further broadened the growth opportunity for the automotive powertrain systems industry.
