Overview of the global automotive differential market

Market research analysts at Technavio predict that the global automotive differential market will grow steadily during the next four years and in terms of units, will post a CAGR of more than 6% by 2020. This market research analysis identifies the rise in demand for SUVs and crossovers in several countries around the globe as one of the primary growth factors for the automobile differential market. The increased preference for comfortable rides over long distances and the availability of extra boot space has resulted in a significant rise in demand for crossovers and SUVs in the US. Additionally, the decreasing interest rates for car loans that enabled people to purchase expensive vehicles also led to the rise in sales of SUVs in the country. One of the major automotive companies Toyota, has already planned to shift its production to Mexico to meet the demand from Canada and the US and another major automaker General Motors has planned to launch more SUVs and crossovers in the US in the coming years. This increase in demand for luxury vehicles will increase the adoption of AWD systems for safer handling, in turn, driving the market’s growth prospects.

The rise in penetration of electronic limited slip differentials (eLSD) will be one of the major trends that will gain traction in this market in the coming years. The increased focus of automotive OEMs to replace the mechanical parts with compact electrical components for fuel-efficiency will result in the adoption of e-LSD in several mid-segment cars as well.

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 diesel locomotive engines market

Market research analysts at Technavio predict that the global diesel locomotive engines market will grow steadily during the next four years and in terms of units, will post a CAGR of almost 3% by 2020. This market research analysis identifies the augmented costs for cost of rail electrification as one of the primary growth factors for this market. The electrification of rails involves high costs. For instance, the electrification of the Great Western mainline in Britain exceeded almost three times the estimated value to almost USD 4 billion. Additionally, it also arises environmental concerns regarding leveling the natural abode for the construction of electric overhead lines. Such factors will consequently result in increasing the demand for diesel engines from the locomotive sector, propelling market growth.

The development of hydrogen-powered locomotive engines is one of the major factors that will gain traction in this market in the coming years. The hydrogen fuel in the roof will produce electricity by mixing hydrogen and oxygen to generate electricity and will emit only condensed water and steam as by-products. This also eliminates the need for overhead cables, making these trains environment-friendly. One of the locomotive engine manufacturers Alstom, has already launched Coradia iLint, a hydrogen cell powered passenger train in Germany in 2016. The train can reach speeds up to 90 mph and has an approximate range of about 500 miles before refueling.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The market is characterized by the presence of a limited number of well-established vendors and is dominated by major players such as General Electric (GE), Caterpillar, and China CNR. Due to the

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.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The market is characterized by the presence of multiple vendors who are also key vendors for the industrial, user electronics and railway applications. The

Overview of the global automotive powertrain sensors market

Market research analysts at Technavio predict that the global automotive powertrain sensors market will grow steadily during the next four years and post a CAGR of almost 6% by 2021. This market research analysis identifies the increased adoption of automatic transmission as one of the primary growth factors for this market. Automatic transmission solves the difficulty of selecting the correct gears and the development of gear-neutral sensing improves the gear shifting process. With automotive manufacturers including functions from stop-start to double clutches to differentiate their products, the market will witness significant growth since powertrain sensors have become one of the crucial components in powertrain.

Due to the characteristics such as high sensitivity and low power consumption of ceramic transducers, automotive original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) will soon start preferring ceramic capacitive pressure sensors.  Additionally, advantages such as the elimination of the need of a medium such as oil for pressure transmission and simple packaging, will also induce OEMs to use ceramic sensors especially for medium pressure ranges.
