About automotive multi-wheel drive
The global automotive industry is focusing on the usage of technologically advanced drivetrain and safety systems to minimize accidents and mitigate the impact of accidents on both passengers and pedestrians. Subsequently, to ensure enhanced control and stability of the vehicle, OEMs developed multi-wheel drive systems to achieve the aforementioned objectives. 

A drivetrain is a group of components that delivers power to the driving wheels. 4WD and AWD are the systems used in vehicles to allow four or all wheels of a vehicle to receive necessary torque from the engine. The AWD system has a differential, whereas the 4WD system does not have it. 

The growing demand for SUVs, especially in the emerging markets such as Mexico, India, and China, is booting the growth of the market. Also, the acceptance of AWD systems in hybrid EVs and the growing awareness among consumers regarding the active safety features are propelling the growth of the market.

Technavio's analysts forecast the global automotive multi-wheel drive market to grow at a CAGR of 6.52% during 2014-2019.
