Automotive Gears Market Outlook 2030 -

Gears are part of a rotating machine, equipped with cutting teeth. Geared devices are capable of changing the torque, speed, and direction of the power source. These systems create a mechanical advantage through the gear ratio by producing an alteration in torque. Two or more meshing gears functioning in a particular sequence are known as a gear transmission. Gears are a significant component in automotive systems. The gears market growth is directly related to vehicle sales. In the automotive market, shifting to more expensive and energy-efficient devices, such as seven-speed and eight-speed automatic transmissions, are also reason for expansion of the market. However, due to the continuous improvement of emission regulations, various factors are inhibiting the growth of the gear market, such as the increasing demand for electric vehicles. The electric vehicles have not much use of gears. Since there are fewer transmission systems, fewer differentials, and almost no gearboxes, the total number of gears used is significantly reduced. In addition, the increasing demand for fuel-efficient vehicles and lightweight auto parts are two factors driving market growth. Moreover, development of the automotive sector in developing countries such as India and Brazil is likely to create opportunities for the automotive gear market in the future. However, due to advancements in technology, vehicles with fully automatic transmission are being developed, which is likely to hinder the market to some extent.

COVID-19 Impact analysis

COVID-19 pandemic has shut-down the production of various products in the global automotive gear industry, mainly owing to the prolonged lockdown in major global countries. This has hampered the growth of the global automotive gear market significantly. COVID-19 has already affected the sales of equipment and machinery in the first quarter of 2020 and is likely to cause a negative impact on the market growth throughout 2021. The major demand for equipment and machinery was previously noticed from giant manufacturing countries including U.S., Germany, Italy, UK, and China, which is badly affected by the spread of coronavirus, thereby halting the demand for equipment and machinery. Further, potential impact of the lockdown is currently vague and financial recovery of companies is totally based on its cash reserves. Equipment and machinery companies can afford a full lockdown only for a few months, after which the players would have to modify their investment plans. Automotive gears manufacturers must focus on protecting their workforce, operations, and supply chains to respond toward immediate crises and find new ways of working.

Top Impacting Factors

  • Growth in global automotive industry, rising demand for enhanced driving experience in terms of smooth gear shifting & improved acceleration, and growing demand for low carbon footprint technologies are driving the growth of the market.
  • High cost of high-end gear systems, and low penetration of advanced geared vehicles is expected to hamper the growth of the market.
  • Plastic gears reinforced with carbon fiber is an upcoming technology, and lightweight gear systems can be seen as an opportunity for the market investments.

The automotive gear market trends are as follows:

Growth in global automotive industry

The global automotive industry has been enjoying sustained growth and profits for a good few years now. The more developed automotive economies like Western Europe, Japan and the U.S. are expected to grow slowly, but the continued penetration into new markets is expected to propel revenue. The auto sector in the emerging nations with increasing middle classes income are forecast to grow at a much faster pace as consumers with higher disposable incomes will stimulate demand for motor vehicle. According to data from the United Nations (UN), more than 54% of the world’s population lives in urban areas, which is creating jobs and increasing personal income levels. Owing to the aforementioned factors of growing population, urbanization and increased standard of living of consumers around the world, creating opportunities for the global automotive market to expand. This in turn is aiding the growth of the global automotive gear market. Thus with the growth of the automotive industry, the global automotive gear market is also expected to grow.
