Drive By Wire Market Trends




  • Increasing investment in drive by system by major OEMs and system manufacturers is driving the market growth




Brake-by-wire system R&D is receiving significant funding from many influential players in the drive-by-wire sector. For example, in 2018, the most recent iteration of Brembo's brake-by-wire technology improved response time, surpassing the previous benchmark of 300-500 milliseconds to 100 milliseconds. Additionally, manufacturers are increasingly reducing the overall weight of the vehicles to enhance fuel economy and are employing drive-by-wire technologies like throttle-by-wire and steer-by-wire as technical solutions to meet the growing demand for lightweight automobiles. Compared to traditional automobiles, autonomous vehicles have a number of benefits. These autonomous vehicles increase passenger safety while lowering pollution from motor vehicles. Various sensors, including GPS, LIDAR, cameras, RADAR, and drive-by-wire systems, are included in autonomous vehicles. By assisting in the detection of any approaching obstacles, these sensors help to lower the likelihood of traffic accidents. The electric fuel pump is also equipped with sensors that regulate the fuel flow to the tank and aid in maintaining the vehicle's fuel economy.


Worldwide, governments and governing bodies have enforced strict emission standards on automakers. These requirements have compelled manufacturers to use lighter materials more frequently, including composites, polymers, lightweight metals, and electronic components that take the place of traditional mechanical connections. A 15% decrease in the vehicle's weight improves fuel efficiency by 8% to 10%. Due to their smaller weight and lower energy requirements during acceleration, lightweight electrical components let vehicles use less fuel.


In the coming years, the Drive By Wire Market is anticipated to be driven by the rising demand for passenger comfort and the expansion of government regulations to reduce car emissions. In addition, increased fuel efficiency and fewer trips for periodic maintenance are anticipated to improve the industry in the upcoming years. Additionally, the market is expected to be driven by technical developments in the automotive sector, innovations, and strict emission regulations by governments and other regulatory organisations. Thus, driving the Drive By Wire market revenue.
