About Tiptronic Transmission
Transmission forms a key function of a vehicle powertrain. It is a type of gearbox that moderates the power generated from an internal combustion engine to the wheel axle. Typically, an automotive transmission includes the entire drivetrain, which forms a system of various components such as gearbox, clutch, prop shaft, drive shafts, and differentials among others. An automatic gearbox with Tiptronic transmission performs the function of an automatic transmission along with the provision of manual gear changing. This combination over-rides the computer that controls normal shifting by using a torque converter instead of a clutch.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global automotive Tiptronic transmission market to grow at a CAGR of 7.66% during the period 2016-2020.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Automotive Tiptronic Transmission Market 2016-2020
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global automotive tiptronic transmission market: BorgWarner, Aisin Seiki, Voith, and ZF AG.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Allison Transmission, and Eaton.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Automated manual transmission is gaining momentum in developing countries like India and China and it will be a key trend for market growth. By seeking potential in developing economies of Asia like India or Myanmar, automakers have found a cheaper and a lesser sophisticated alternative in the form of automated manual transmission compared with other hydraulic systems used in the developed economies of the western world. Many global automakers are offering such technology in entry-level cars to address the need and demand for such systems as these economies are facing traffic issues for a long period.”
According to the report, modern Tiptronic transmission requires less space and is more fuel-efficient. Use of aluminum construction and compact design configurations will be a key driver for market growth. The latest generation of automatic gearbox with Tiptronic transmission is offering better fuel efficiency compared with manual transmission. Modern automated gearboxes are made of aluminum, making them lighter and compact than standard transmission systems. Lighter weight automatic gearboxes do not require much fuel to operate. Therefore, they offer the convenience of automatic transmission systems along with the fuel efficiency of manual transmission systems.
Further, the report states that harder gear shifts which results in whining and grinding noise are the major challenges for the market. Automatic gearboxes with Tiptronic transmission are more complex compared with manual transmission in terms of design and functionality. Therefore, their diagnosis remains a challenge. A contaminated transmission fluid is one of the root causes for a faulty automatic transmission system that causes transmission slipping. An automatic gearbox with Tiptronic transmission uses a set of planetary gears for shifting through the gears, where they are coupled to input and output shafts. The gearshift occurs through a series of clutches and bands, which are activated with the help of ATF. Hence, a worn out clutch or bands could lead to harder gearshifts while leaving the engine revved for a longer period. Moreover, contamination in transmission fluids can make things worse by causing excessive wear and premature failure of clutch plates.
