Engine Insights

Based on the engine, the Internal Combustion (IC) engine segment dominated the global automotive transmission market in 2020, in terms of revenue. To improve fuel economy, internal combustion (IC) engines are now combined with hybrid electric vehicles. These engines are also used in conjunction with plug-in hybrid electric systems to broaden the range of plug-in electric vehicles. These advantages are expected to provide opportunities for the growth of internal combustion (IC) engine segment in the coming years.

On the other hand, the Electric Engine segment is estimated to be the most opportunistic segment during the forecast period.The market demand of electric engines has increased as a result of increased urbanization and increased demand for electric automobiles. The electric engine segment will benefit from the growth and expansion of the automobile sector, as well as increased personal disposable income. The electric engine segment expansion will be aided by rising global power consumption and the use of electrical equipment.

Type Insights

Based on thetype, the Automatic Manual Transmission (AMT) segment dominated the global automotive transmission market in 2020, in terms of revenue and is estimated to sustain its dominance during the forecast period.The automatic manual transmission (AMT) segment is driven by rising demand for fuel-efficient transmission system. The change from mechanical to automated driving technologies is creating huge market opportunity. Thus, the automatic manual transmission (AMT) is widely used in the market.

On the other hand, the Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) segment is estimated to be the most opportunistic segment during the forecast period. Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) allows for maximum speed at low engine speeds, saving fuel and allowing for more efficient ploughing. Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) systems are favored by vehicle manufacturers around the world because they are light in weight, small in size, and have fewer moving components.

Vehicle Type Insights

Based on the vehicle type, the passenger vehicle segment accounted 66% revenue share in 2020. The demand for passenger vehicles is influenced by volatile fuel prices and road infrastructure. The improving economic outlook in developing nations is likely to boost the demand for passenger vehicles in the market.

Automotive Transmission Market Share, By Vehicle, 2020 (%)
