The global automotive automatic transmission market size is anticipated to expand at a significant CAGR during the forecast period, 2021-2028. The growth of the market is attributed to rising vehicle production across developing nations such as China, India, and Brazil.
An automatic transmission (AT) is also known as self-shifting transmission or dual pedal technology. AT is a multi-speed transmission used in motor vehicles that doesn’t require driver to shift gears. It generally involves a transmission, axle, and differential in one integrated assembly, thus technically becoming a transaxle.
The COVID-19 pandemic negative impacted the automotive industry due to closedown of the manufacturing facilities. However, the relaxation in restrictions is estimated to positively influence the market growth.
Market Trends, Drivers, Restraints and Opportunities
- Rising consumer preference for enhanced driving experience in terms of smooth gear shifting and improved acceleration is projected to drive the market growth during the forecast period.
- Increasing demand for self-shifting automobile transmission is expected to boost the market growth in the coming years.
- Growing demand for lightweight transmission systems is projected to drive the market growth during the forecast period.
- High cost of advanced transmission systems is estimated to restrict the market growth in the coming years.
- Growing demand for hybrid vehicles can create lucrative opportunities during the forecast period.
