Global Commercial Vehicle Transmission Market 2017-2021

About Commercial Vehicle Transmission

Transmission system is a device used for changing power and speed of wheels at various points of time by varying the ratio between revolutions per minute (RPM) of wheel and RPM of the engine to suit the driving conditions. Transmission system and the drivetrain are responsible for transferring power produced by the crankshaft during combustion to the axles for producing tractive power at the wheels. Manual transmission requires the operations of a driver who would manually shift the gear selector mechanism. Automatic transmissions are basically operated by hydraulic control systems managed by the vehicle's electronic control unit (ECU).

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global commercial vehicle transmission market to grow at a CAGR of 0.55% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Commercial Vehicle Transmission Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global commercial vehicle transmission market: Aisin, Allison Transmissions, Eaton Corporation, and WABCO.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Continental, Jatco, Knorr Bremse, Mack trucks, Magna International, Oerlikon Graziano, Schaeffler, Voith, and ZF FRIEDRICHSHAFEN.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is automatic transmission systems to be equipped with nine gears. Automotive manufacturers are developing automatic transmissions that allow a smooth transition of power. Increased number of gears in an automatic transmission will allow the system to choose the most appropriate gear and reduce fuel consumption.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is advanced transmission systems used in commercial vehicles to increase price. Technological progress in transmission systems used in commercial vehicles is expected to raise the price due to rising economies of scale. Currently, the market structure of commercial vehicle transmissions is based on the type of vehicle in which the transmission system is being installed. AMT systems are penetrating the medium and heavy-duty commercial vehicles market between 9 to 16 metric tons due to easy installation and improved fuel-efficiency. WABCO has developed the OptiDrive technology AMT system, which offers high fuel-efficiency and reduces emissions. Automated transmissions are also being installed in commercial vehicles as they provide comfort to the driver.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is automatic transmission systems increase risk of exceeding tire adhesion limits. Vehicle manufacturers are under constant pressure to innovate and create comfortable transmission systems for commercial vehicles to ease driver's fatigue. Chances of fatigue are high when drivers work tight schedules and need to achieve strict delivery deadlines. Automatic transmission in commercial vehicles decreases fatigue by allowing the onboard computer to shift gears automatically without any input from the driver, apart from acceleration and braking. However, automatic transmissions are known to have low fuel-efficiency.
