Overview of the global automotive traffic jam assist systems market

The global automotive traffic jam assist system market is anticipated to grow rapidly and post a CAGR of more than 12% during the forecast period. The growing demand for luxury vehicles will drive the growth prospects for the global automotive traffic jam assist system market during the next four years. The luxury vehicle segment is one of the major market segments that exhibit a high percentage of demand for level 3 autonomous features. Some of these features which are highly incorporated in luxury vehicles include adaptive cruise control (ACC) and traffic jam assist (TJA). Furthermore, the cost of installation of level 3 autonomous features is quite high. With the growing demand for luxury vehicles among consumers, the market’s growth will further increase. It has been observed that despite the growing uncertainty regarding increased interest rates by the Federal Reserve, the demand for vehicles has been robust across the world.

The emergence fo next generation TJA and ACC will drive the growth prospects for the global automotive traffic jam assist systems market during the forecasted period. The current ACC and TJA systems use surrounding information from radar or LiDAR sensors to navigate through traffic, but the cost incurred in the manufacture of these sensors is very high. As a result, researchers have been focusing on the development of next generation TJA and ACC systems that do not depend on sensors for information about the driving conditions. For instance, California Partners for Advanced Transit and Highways (PATH) in collaboration with the Department of Transport has been testing a pilot project, where a leading vehicle broadcasts information about its speed and acceleration using a communication protocol.

Overview of the global automotive auto dimming mirror market

Market research analysts at Technavio predict that the global automotive auto dimming mirror market will grow steadily during the next four years and in terms of units, will post a CAGR of more than 5% by 2021. This market research analysis identifies the introduction of auto dimming mirrors coupled with several vision-based safety systems to enhance safety as one of the primary growth factors for this market. Auto dimming mirrors detect the intensity of light and adjust accordingly. This reduces the glare on rear-view mirrors making night time driving safe for drivers. When coupled with other automotive safety systems such as blind spot detection and park assist systems, automotive dimming mirrors can augment driver comfort and safety. Moreover, it has been observed that drivers watch rear-view mirrors more frequently than the instrument panel and as a result, automotive manufacturers will start providing auto dimming mirrors as a standard fitment, propelling market growth in the coming years.

Manufacturers constantly focus on the development and integration of advanced technologies and few vendors already offer automotive automatic dimming mirrors with advanced features such as temperature readings, travel calculations, and weather conditions. The smart rear-view mirror offered by Nissan can switch between the LCD monitor and the conventional rearview mirror and comes with advanced features such as embedding electronics like cameras and sensors, internet connectivity, and touchscreen options.

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.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The global transmission oil pump market is very competitive with a limited number of well-established vendors. The global vendors dominate the market and are constantly focusing on extending their customer base and increasing their investments in
