HEVs to achieve 􂀀% share of market by 2020 driven by the future increase in oil prices.

Powertrain Market: Key Takeaways, Japan, 2014

Gasoline powertrain is estimated to account for􂀀% of the production in 2014 while Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) production is rapidly increasing year-on-year and is likely to garner 􂀀% share by 2020, as oil prices are expected to increase in the future and there will also be a greater push from local Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs).

In order to meet stringent carbon-emission norms and reduce the response time of power transmission, OEMs are continuously undertaking research to improve vehicle performance, which is leading to the implementation of Continuous Variable Transmission (CVT) and Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT).

Hybrid and electric vehicles are growing rapidly in Japan, with sales expected to grow to approximately 􂀀 million units by 2020, accounting for a considerable share of global demand.

Several OEMs will be implementing advanced robust valve train designs in the next 5 years. OEMs are focusing on turbocharging and direct injection to support engine downsizing that will reduce emissions.
