Value Chain Analysis


On the basis of the transmission types, the global torque converter market is segmented into three types such as AMT (Automated manual transmission), CVT (Continuously variable transmission), and DCT (Dual-clutch transmission). The duel clutch segment held the largest share in the torque converter market, in the year 2018. The rise in the development of this segment is magnificently contributing to the growth of the torque converter market. With the launch of the new dual-clutch model in the passenger vehicles from Hyundai, in the year 2018, are expected to rise the growth of the market during the forecast period.


 


On the basis of the vehicle types, the global torque converter market is segmented into two major types one is passenger vehicles and the other is commercial vehicles. According to the reports of OICA, china held 35% of the global torque converter market shares in the passenger cars sales, in the year 2017. The rise in the demand for the passenger vehicles segment is predicted to grow at a faster pace during the forecast period. The growth in the demand for passenger cars in the North Americas and Asia is expected to boost the sales 


Segmentation Overview


The market is segmented on the basis of the transmission type, component, vehicle types, and hybrid vehicle type. On the basis of the component the market is segmented into Clutch plate, Damper, Impeller, Stator, Turbine, and Others, and on the basis of the hybrid vehicles the market is segmented into two types one is Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) and other is Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV)
