This industry research report identifies Hyper Racer, Surflex, Sigma Performance, Yoyodyne, and Hinson Clutch Components as the key vendors in the global slipper clutch market for two-wheelers. This industry research report also presents a competitive analysis of the market by engine size/capacity (entry level (below 400cc engine, mid-size (400-699cc engine), full-size (700-1000cc engine), and performance (above 1000cc)) and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Overview of the global slipper clutch market for two-wheelers

Market research analysts at Technavio predict that the global slipper clutch market for two-wheelers will grow steadily during the next four years and in terms of units, will post a CAGR of more than 11% by 2020. This market research analysis identifies the rise in sales of premium bikes in emerging markets as one of the primary growth factors for the motorcycle slipper clutch market. The rise in number of high net worth individuals (HNWIs) in APAC will result in an increase in the purchasing power of the region’s population. Since credit-related issues would weigh less for people in the affluent class, there will be a rapid increase in the sales of premium motorcycles in the region, especially in the emerging markets. An increase in sales volume of premium motorcycles in these regions will induce several other international OEMs to enter the market by forming partnerships with domestic motorcycle OEMs. As the premium motorcycle segment is one the major contributors to the slipper clutch market, an increase in their sales volume will subsequently drive the growth of the back torque limiting clutch market.

The motorcycle market in emerging countries such as India and China is dominated by commuter bikes and these regions account for the major shares of the global two-wheelers market. The increasing amount of road congestion and the volatile nature of fuel prices affect the market for premium motorcycles in these markets. It has been observed that end-users in this region focus on purchasing motorcycles mainly for economic and fast travel, that will result in increasing the sales of motorcycles with engine capacity between 101cc and 125cc such as scooters. This will affect the sales of premium motorcycles, which in turn, will greatly affect the sales of slipper clutch for motorcycles.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

This global anti-hopping clutch market is characterized by the presence of a number vendors and is highly competitive. The market has a very few well-established vendors and they are continuously focusing on increasing their R&D investments and expanding their customer base. The market has very little entry barriers, which will encourage the entry of several other small- and medium-scale vendors. Technological advancements, introduction of new regulations, and the entry of new competitors will intensify the level of competition among vendors.

The leading vendors in the market are -

  • Hyper Racer
  • Surflex
  • Sigma Performance
  • Yoyodyne
  • Hinson Clutch Components

Segmentation by engine size/capacity and analysis of the slipper clutch market for two-wheelers

  • Entry level (below 400cc engine)
  • Mid-size (400-699cc engine)
  • Full-size (700-1000cc engine)
  • Performance (above 1000cc)

During 2015, the entry level segment that consists of motorcycles equipped with engines below 400cc, accounted for the major market shares and dominated this market. The heavy import duty imposed on company built units (CBUs) by developing countries such as India, will induce OEMs to open manufacturing units in the country and compete with local vendors and other international vendors with a price advantage over their entry-level and premium motorcycles equipped with slipper clutches. As a result, the shares of this market segment will increase during the next four years and this segment will continue its market dominance throughout the predicted period.

The growing sales of electric two-wheelers and a high number of two wheeler road accidents have necessitated the use of safety features like ABS and slipper clutches for these vehicles. The primary purpose of a slipper clutch is to control the rear wheel under hard braking and downshifting that causes it to lose grip. These clutches are particularly useful on higher displacement bikes where the engine braking force is very strong and may cause the motorcycle to go out of control, leading to a high-speed collision or accident. Hyper Racer, Surflex, and Yoyodyneti have been identified as some of the prominent vendors in this market space.
