Hydrostatic Transmission Market Overview

The method of turning mechanical energy into pressure energy with the aid of a fluid-powered transmission system to provide high torque at low speed is known as hydrostatic transmission. There are many industrial applications for hydrostatic transmission systems, including lifts, machines, motors, etc. The demand for heavy lifting equipment has grown along with the building and mining industries, and to lift this equipment, hydrostatic power is necessary. As a result, the market for hydrostatic transmission is supplemented by this.

COVID-19 Impact on the Global Hydrostatic Transmission Market:

As the Covid-19 crisis grew, the demand for hydrostatic transmission entered a negative phase. The sales volume in this market experienced a decline, potentially costing global manufacturers’ money. The leading manufacturers are attempting to make up for the losses suffered through product diversifications and innovations when the situation begins to normalize in 2021 as a result of strong and severe government measures. To retain and expand their respective market shares globally, well-known manufacturers are turning to contracts and agreements, research and development, technological improvements, and mergers and acquisitions.

Hydrostatic Transmission Market Dynamics

  • Drivers

  • Rising collaboration and acquisitions among key players

  • Growing demand from end-user industries

To retain and expand their respective market shares globally, well-known manufacturers are turning to contracts and agreements, research and development, technological improvements, and mergers and acquisitions. For instance, Eaton Corporation declared the completion of its acquisition of Tripp Lite in March 2021. Eaton will be able to grow its power quality business in America thanks to this acquisition. The inability of conventional mechanical transmission systems to provide the precise power transmission required by off-road equipment has been a major contributing cause in the rise in popularity of hydrostatic transmissions with fluid coupling. Additionally, the adaptability of hydrostatic transmission makes it a desirable option for a variety of end users.

  • Restraints

  • High cost of Hydrostatic transmission equipment

Hydrostatic transmission equipment is expensive. Therefore, only larger corporations can currently afford to buy and use it. The price will have to come down considerably before its adaptation and use becomes universal. Hydrostatic transmission equipment is widely used in heavy duty applications where high pressures operations are obvious. It can be unreasonably expensive to construct variable displacement pumps and motors with an exterior capable of withstanding such high pressures.


  • Growing demand from automotive industry

The fact that the automobile industry is increasingly investing in the research and development needed to make smart cars also helps. This industry needs hydrostatic transmission equipment to help make electric cars which are quickly becoming popular. It also needs this equipment to manufacture a new generation of cars which are more efficient and safer to drive. Hydrostatic transmission is electrically powered. Therefore, it’s safer than traditional petroleum and natural gas.

Hydrostatic Transmission Market Segmentation

Based on capacity:

Based on the capacity, the market has been segmented into light duty, medium duty and heavy duty. Light-duty hydrostatic transmissions are offered by manufacturers as complete, all-in-one packages that include a fixed displacement radial ball piston hydraulic motor, a variable displacement radial ball piston hydraulic pump, and a full valve system. On the other hand, some of the features of medium duty hydrostatic transmission include variable displacement, servo controlled and fixed displacement. While features of heavy-duty hydrostatic transmission include bent axis – fixed displacement, bent axis – variable displacement fixed and variable displacement. Among them, heavy duty segment is the largest segment of the hydrostatic transmission market in 2021 and will continue to dominate during the forecast period.

Based on operation type:

Based on operation type, the hydrostatic transmission market has segmented into VDM-CDP, VDP-CDM and VDM-VDP. The only benefit of the fixed-displacement pump with fixed-displacement motor connection is its spatial flexibility. The transmission ratio of this combination remains constant. Therefore, the prime mover's speed must be altered to achieve variable output speed.

According to the circuit design, there are two types of hydrostatic transmission: closed-circuit and open-circuit. Reservoir, suction strainer, pressure relief valves, pump, motor, conduit with connectors, return line filter, and control unit are components of a straightforward open circuit transmission system. A closed-circuit transmission system needs a feed or charge pump unit and twin shock valves in addition to the requirements for an open circuit transmission system. VDM-CDP segmented held the largest market share in 2021 and will dominate during forecast period.

Based on end user:

Depending on the end user, the market has been segmented into agriculture, construction & mining, logistics & transport and others. In construction machinery, the hydrostatic transmission has a number of benefits, including the ability to deliver variable output speed from a constant input speed, stepless speed changes, the ability to deliver constant output speed from variable input speed. Due to its high production capacity, optimized fuel economy, stability, and safety profile, hydrostatic transmissions have emerged as the industry standard for heavy machinery mining. Applications requiring variable output velocity or torque are suited for hydrostatic transmission. Golf course maintenance tools, harvesters, tractors, trenchers, agricultural, and heavy construction machinery are a few of these applications. Of them, construction & mining segment accounted for the largest share in the market in 2021 and expected to continue its dominance over the forecast duration.
