Demand for Automatic Transmission in Developing Countries Bolsters Market Growth

Automotive transmission systems are critical components of vehicles, largely determining their fuel efficiency. The escalating fuel prices have propelled the demand for automotive transmission in the recent past as consumers are seeking enhanced solutions to achieve maximum fuel efficiency. Thus, the technological advancements seen in the invention of 9-speed automatic transmission, dual shafts gearboxes (DSG), and continuous variable transmission (CVTs) have collectively fueled the global market in the past decade.

The global market has also been thriving on the integration of automatic transmission in entry-level cars. This trend is being emphasized by vehicle buyers in developing countries such as Mexico, Brazil, and India. Comfort and convenience offered by automatic transmission are augmenting the demand for such vehicles in these countries. Furthermore, growing preference for simpler driving techniques on congested roads is also propelling the demand for automatic transmission market.

Lack of Awareness about Advanced Transmission Holds Back Market Growth

The global market is being hampered by the lack of awareness about the benefits of advanced transmission technology in the volume markets. Thus, a market such as India is still dominated by manual transmission vehicles, making it difficult for manufacturers to produce and sell advanced transmission at lower prices.

Furthermore, the high cost of technologically advanced transmission systems is also expected to restrain the market during the forecast period. However, the development and emergence of CVT will offer a plethora of opportunities to the global market as these promise maximum fuel efficiency to vehicles.
