Powertrain is one of the important components for an automobile that produces power to drive the vehicle by transferring it to the wheels. Some of the main components of powertrain include transmission, engine, driveshaft, and differentials. The performance as well as efficiency of a vehicle depends on powertrain properties.

Government regulations supporting the advancement and technological development in powertrain systems along with rising demand for environment friendly vehicle are some of the prime factors that are likely to drive the market growth for automotive powertrain during the upcoming years. In addition, surge in the vehicle production particularly across developing nations are anticipated to further propel the automotive powertrain market during the forthcoming years. In 2020, China registered a rise of 5.7% in the car production reaching to 2.84 million units. Similarly, other Asian nations such as India, Japan, and South Korea are witnessing significant rise in the production of passenger cars owing to exponential rise in the demand.

Further, stringent regulation imposed by the governments of various countries particularly of the North America and Europe regions leads to spur the demand for higher quality powertrains that are light weight and helps to reduce the emission as well as improve fuel efficiency and vehicle performance. Rising rate of global pollution has forced several regions to take strict measure to protect the environment. This all initiatives help to reduce the rising rate of carbon dioxide and prevents the environment from global warming. Hence, the aforementioned factors are likely to propel the market growth for automotive powertrain over the forthcoming years.

Further, the introduction to automated transmission expected to surge the demand for automotive powertrain during the upcoming years. This is mainly because of its increasing demand in electric vehicles and hybrid vehicles. As the automotive market trend has witnessed a drastic shift towards automated cars and electric vehicles that impels the growth of automated transmission as well during the forecast timeframe.

COVID-19 Impact

However, COVID-19 outbreak in the year 2020 has disrupted the operation of automotive industry and impacted negatively on the automotive sales that hampered the growth of the industry. This in turn also impacted the market growth of automotive transmission during the COVID-19 struggling period. Nonetheless, the automotive industry likely to regain its pace over few upcoming years and hence recovering the market for automotive transmission.

Position Insights

Based on position, the global automotive powertrain market is classified into All-wheel Drive (AWD), Rear-wheel Drive (RWD), and Front-wheel Drive (FWD).

Automotive Powertrain Market Share, By Position, 2020 (%)

AWD captured the majority of revenue share in the year 2020 as well as estimated to grow at the highest rate during the forthcoming years. This is mainly attributed to the benefits offered by AWD over other positions that include RWD and FWD.
