Global outlook of the electric vehicle motor market

Technavio’s market research analysts predict the global electric vehicle motor market to grow steadily during the forecast period and post a CAGR of almost 23% by 2021. This industry research report identifies the increased demand for improving the driving range of electric vehicles to be one of the major factors that will have a positive impact on the growth of the electric vehicle (EV) motor market in the coming years. The range of the electric vehicle mainly depends on the electric powertrain control systems. Switching losses and thermal efficiency of the rotor and stator units in the motor and electronic units in the power inverter result in the consumption of more energy from the battery by the electric drive. To reduce switching losses, automotive companies have started packing electronic components more tightly and closely. This will enhance the output of the inverter and motor and increase the range of electric vehicles, consequently driving the adoption of electric vehicles.

In terms of geographical regions, APAC will be the major revenue contributor to the electric car motor market throughout the next four years. The rise in production and sales of electric vehicles in countries such as Japan and China and the presence of established original equipment manufacturers such as Toyota Industries, Honda Motor, Hyundai Motor, and Nissan Motor, will boost the market’s growth prospects in this region.

Global outlook of the electric vehicle transmission market

Technavio’s market research analysts predict the global electric vehicle transmission market to grow steadily during the forecast period and post a CAGR of almost 47% by 2020, in terms of units. This industry research report identifies the increased focus on reducing the emission of greenhouse gases to be one of the major factors that will have a positive impact on the growth of this market in the coming years. It has been observed that almost 26% of the total greenhouse gas emissions in the US is from the automotive industry. To reduce the emission of greenhouse gases, several countries around the globe such as the US, countries in the European Union, and China are focusing on the reduction of carbon emissions by promoting the adoption of electric vehicles, which will in turn, propel the demand for electric vehicle transmission in the coming years.

Since multi-gear transmissions will deliver greater efficiency when compared to single-gear transmissions during suburban driving and in highways, drivetrain manufacturers will start focusing on the development of multi-gear transmissions. These transmissions will offer several benefits such as increased vehicle range in terms of distance traveled in one charge and reduced battery pack sizes and also improves the low-speed pull away and high-speed driving.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The market is characterized by the presence of a very few vendors. One of the major manufacturers GKN, designs and manufactures systems and components for various industries. The company has a good product portfolio and a strong presence in several geographical regions. The company operates through five major business segments such as Driveline

Overview of the global transmission oil pump market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global transmission oil pump market to grow at a CAGR of more than 6% between 2016 and 2020. At present, most automotive OEMs are moving toward automatic transmission technology due to the growing demand from emerging countries like China, Brazil, and India. With the significant rise in traffic congestion in developed and developing countries, people prefer automatic transmissions instead of manual transmissions for the convenience of driving in heavy traffic. Moreover, inexperienced drivers are also opting for automatic cars as there are license regulations for manual cars in regions such as Japan. The driving license regulation for manual cars is strict as the driving test is more difficult and requires an accuracy rate of over 97% to pass at one shot, which makes people prefer electric cars.

The shifting trend towards vehicle electrification has led to the introduction of several electric transmission pumps in the market. Electric oil pumps are driven by an electric motor, which is connected to a battery and offers variable shifting and control strategies. Almost all the newly developed high-speed transmissions are making use of electric transmission oil pumps such as Mercedes 9G Tronic and latest Volkswagen 10-Speed DSG. Also, the majority of the upcoming high-speed transmissions are anticipated to be equipped with electric transmission oil pumps in the coming years, which, in turn, will compel manufacturers to focus more on vehicle electrification.
