Automotive Steer-by-Wire System Market Trends


Increased advantages of the SBW system is driving the market growth


The advantages of the SBW system are one of the main factors boosting the market CAGR for automotive steer-by-wire (SbW) systems. An electronic system with improved functional precision is the SBW system. The primary benefit of SBW systems for car equipping is that they help lighten the vehicle, which boosts fuel efficiency.  Due to fewer mechanical linkages and components, the SBW system improves vehicle safety by lessening the impact of collisions. The modular architecture of SBW systems results from continuing developments, which will speed up production. Adding an active steering system to SBW may optimize vehicle handling and enhance the active lane control system of the vehicle. During the projection period, these advantages will propel the market for automobile steer-by-wire (SbW) systems.


The increasing use of advanced steering systems in automobiles is one of the major market trends for automotive steer-by-wire systems that are driving market expansion. The demonstrations at auto shows and consumer electronics exhibitions demonstrate how automakers and tier-1 suppliers are collaborating to commercialize autonomous technologies. One of the well-known startups developing SBW systems is Nexteer Automotive Co. Nexteer Automotive Co. unveiled an SBW with a detachable steering column in 2021. The stable steering column will give the driver more room to perform other tasks automatically while driving. For instance, the extra space can be used for activities like reading books, eating, and other things when the driver's attention is unnecessary. These advancements will favorably affect the market expansion for automotive steer-by-wire systems during the anticipated period.


Steer-by-wire systems offer improved accuracy, dependability, and safety by replacing conventional mechanical steering systems with electronic controls. Steer-by-wire systems are advantageous for electric vehicles because they do away with the need for bulky, complicated mechanical parts like the steering column, rack and pinion, and hydraulic pump. This aids in lightening the load on the car, increasing efficiency and range. Advanced steering systems that can connect with the vehicle's sensors and control systems are also necessary for autonomous vehicles in order to ensure accurate and safe navigation. This is made possible via steer-by-wire technology, which provides precise and immediate control of the vehicle's steering whether or not the driver is present. As a result, the market for automotive steer-by-wire systems is expected to expand dramatically, spurred by rising interest in electric and driverless vehicles. Thus, driving the automotive steer-by-wire system market revenue.


Automotive Steer-by-Wire System Market Segment Insights:

The increased discretionary income of people around the world complements this rising demand. The market for automotive steer-by-wire systems has expanded in recent years due to the huge increase in high-end passenger cars. Nissan was one of the first automakers to implement steer-by-wire systems and has pioneered in the field. Therefore, the passenger vehicle segment is expected to continue to have a monopolistic position during the projection period.


Automotive Steer-by-Wire System Component Insights


The automotive steer-by-wire system market segmentation, based on component, includes Feedback Motors, Angular Sensors, Steering Actuators and Others. The angular sensors category generated the most income due to its use in all different kinds of vehicles. Furthermore, this is because steering actuators are used more frequently in car steering systems. Over the course of the forecast, the market for feedback motors is anticipated to rise strongly. But the angular sensors market segment is anticipated to lead in terms of revenue and exhibit the greatest CAGR. In steer-by-wire automotive systems, the angle sensor is crucial because it gives the electronic control unit (ECU) the feedback it needs to regulate the steering actuator and ensure safe and effective steering.
