This market research study identifies WABCO, ZF Friedrichshafen, Eaton, Volvo PowerTrain, and Detroit Diesel as the leading players in the global automated manual transmission (AMT) transmission market for commercial vehicles. A comprehensive analysis of this market is also presented by the application (HCV and MCV) and geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Overview of the global AMT transmission market for commercial vehicles

The global AMT transmission market for commercial vehicles is anticipated to grow at a steady rate and will post a CAGR of more than 9% during the forecast period. The growing demand for fuel-efficient transmission systems will drive the growth prospects for the global AMT transmission market for commercial vehicles during the forecast period. Transmission systems are the main units in vehicles that help in fuel efficiency, and the AMT system is effective in providing the right gear at the right time. Furthermore, manual transmissions drivers who hold a gear for long while climbing or descending grades will consume more fuel. However, since even inexperienced drivers can ride the vehicle without affecting the fuel consumption much, the AMT is highly useful for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). As a result, AMT eliminates the driver behavioral impact on the vehicle. However, efforts taken to educate these drivers on AMT technology will improvise the efficiency in the coming years. Also, since AMT technology provides an optimal balance between the cost and fuel economy of the vehicles, it eventually results in the market’s growth.

The rapid adoption of automated transmission technology will fuel the growth prospects for the market until the end of 2020. Currently, it has been noted that there is an increasing shift from mechanical to automated driving systems. However, to attain sustainability, OEMs are focusing on providing customers with new driving experience by synchronizing the gear and engine components. Moreover, AMT accounts for the higher growth rate in comparison to manual and automatic transmissions.
