Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Automated Manual Transmission Market in Commercial Vehicles 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global automated manual transmission market in commercial vehicles: WABCO, ZF Friedrichshafen, and Eaton.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Shaanxi Fast Auto Drive, Allison Transmission, and Mack Trucks.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The ease of driving AMT vehicles and the increased safety of the driver provided by the system is shifting consumer preference from manual transmissions to AMT systems. Currently, 80% of HCVs have manual transmissions. OEMs are expanding their product base into AMT commercial vehicles. There is a substantial drop in accidents from the fleet as drivers can concentrate on traffic instead of doing a gear change.”

According to the report, the global demand for fuel-efficient transmission systems in commercial vehicles from OEMs is increasing. Fuel consumption is one of the highest operating costs for commercial vehicles serving the world economies. Transmission systems are the main units in vehicles that help in fuel efficiency, and the AMT system is effective in providing the right gear at the right time. AMTs provide 5%-8% miles per gallon savings compared with manual transmissions subject to the kind of usage of vehicles and drivers driving skills.

Further, the report states that AMT systems can be installed in the existing transmission systems, but it is 3000$-5000$ costlier than automatic transmissions, which increases the total cost of the vehicles. Automotive component manufacturers need huge investments to expand their existing portfolio to provide AMT systems.
