Automotive Clutch Market is a mechanical device which is used to connect a driven shaft to the driven shaft, so that the driven shaft can be stopped or started at will, without making the driving shaft come to a halt. Thus, the clutch provides a connection that is uninterruptable between two rotating shafts. A clutch is basically used for power transmission between two shafts in an automobile. Clutches form an essential part of an automotive drive train mechanism and enable continuous transmission while a gear is selected. In an automotive clutch, a clutch plate connects to the transmission and a flywheel connects to the engine. The amount of force held by the clutch is dependent on the friction between the flywheel and the clutch plate and how much force is exerted by the spring on the pressure plate. Clutches then help to engage a spinning engine to a non-spinning transmission. A popular application of clutches in automobiles is to connect the engine with the gear box. Clutches are also extensively used in all types of production machinery.
The global automotive clutch market is being strongly driven by the overall growth of the automotive industry. The speedy growth of automobile production globally has led the auto part manufacturers to develop improved systems and this is driving the demand for efficient automotive parts, thus bolstering the growth of the global automotive clutch market. Further, increasing need for fuel efficiency and stringent vehicle emission norms coupled with technological advancements are steadily bolstering the growth of the automotive clutch market. However, the growing inclination towards reliable and sophisticated electric vehicles is acting as a hindrance to the growth of the global automotive clutch market.
The global automotive clutch market can be segmented on the basis of clutch type into dog clutch, semi centrifugal clutch, centrifugal clutch, friction clutch, vacuum clutch, electro-magnetic clutch and hydraulic clutch. The selection of clutch type should be made, based on certain factors including, torque, available space, rotation speed and frequency of operation. By transmission type, the global market can be segregated into manual transmission, automatic transmission, continuously variable transmission and automated manual transmission. Additionally, the market can be bifurcated by vehicle type into passenger vehicles and commercial vehicles. The global automotive clutch market can be further classified geographically into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America and Middle East and Africa. In Europe, most of the transmission systems are manual but the trend is changing with fully automatic and semi automatic transmission overtaking manual transmission due to the convenience offered by them. The automotive clutch market is expected to grow at a rapid pace in Asia Pacific and North America during the forecast period, owing to increasing production of passenger vehicles in these regions. Moreover, the OEMs commencing new production facilities to expand their previous production capacity to cater to the rising demand in these regions. This is propelling the growth of the overall automotive industry, which in turn is resulting in a signification growth in the demand of automotive clutches in Asia Pacific and North America.
