This market research report presents a detailed segmentation of the continuously variable transmissions (CVT) system market in APAC by vehicle type and includes sub-segments like passenger cars and commercial vehicles. The key leading vendors in this market are Aisin AW, Punch Powertrain, IAV, and JATCO.

Overview of the continuously variable transmissions (CVT) system market in APAC

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts that the continuously variable transmissions (CVT) system market in APAC will grow impressively at a CAGR of just over 12% during the forecast period. Rising health and environmental concerns have led to the implementation of stringent emission norms, which in turn is expected to drive the prospects for growth in this market over the next few years. Besides this factor, the globalization of the auto industry will have a big impact on the APAC region.  Earlier, such regulations were mostly prevalent in developed countries such as US, Germany, UK and Canada. However, various countries from APAC have adopted emission regulations in a bid to control the harmful impact on the natural environment. Such legislations mandate the use of efficient technologies that help to reduce emissions and improve fuel economy. With more countries adopting emission norms, the OEMs are expected to drive the adoption of CVT system at a rapid pace until the end of 2020.

In this industry research report, the analysts have estimated factors such as advances in the powertrain technology to contribute to the growth of this market over the forecast period. Early transmission systems comprised of multiple mechanical components, which were replaced with electronic components. The incorporation of electronic components will not only help to reduce the weight of the vehicle but also ensure higher accuracy in operations.Recent advances in powertrain technology have also led to the introduction of transmission systems that have higher internal pressures and greater instantaneous forces. Such technological advances enable seamless gear shifts without the loss of tractive force. Since these advances have made quite an impression on manufacturers and consumers, it will lead to the extensive use of CVT technologies until the end of 2020.

Continuously variable transmissions (CVT) is a form of automatic transmission which technically doesn't have gears, and hence, the driver doesn't feel gear shifts experienced in a standard mechanical transmission. Vehicles equipped with CVT systems have an above-average fuel economy and an efficient power delivery. Such vehicles reduce the effort on the gear shift and add to the convenience of the driver. These vehicles have a high demand in regions such as APAC, which experience massive traffic congestions.
