An automotive transmission system (also referred to as the gearbox) provide a controlled application of the power which is generated from the engine of the vehicle. The transmission system uses gear trains and gears to provide torque and speed conversions from a rotating power source to another device. Transmission systems used in vehicles are hydraulic transmissions. This type of transmission uses a kind of fluid coupling instead of friction clutch, and changes gears by locking and unlocking a system of planetary gears. Broadly, the automotive transmission system can be segmented into two types: manual and automatic transmission. By fuel type, automotive transmission market can be segmented into gasoline, diesel, and others. The automotive transmission system by vehicle type has been segmented into passenger cars, LCV’s, ICV’s, HCV’s, off road vehicles, construction equipment vehicles, defense vehicles and farm tractors.
Latest automotive transmission system enhances the driving experience in terms of improved acceleration, gear shifting and improves fuel efficiency over conventional manual transmission systems. Growing demand for lower carbon emissions is driving the automotive transmission system market. Low penetration of advanced transmission system in regional markets like India, Brazil, and Mexico is restraining the automotive transmission system market. End users in India and Pakistan still prefer manual transmission over automatic transmissions. Moreover, variants with automatic transmission are costlier than manual transmissions and this is restraining the automotive transmission market. Growing demand for advanced transmission systems in the entry level vehicle segment is expected to drive the market.
