Global Continuously Variable Transmission Systems 2015-2019

About continuously variable transmission systems

CVT is a form of automatic transmission that helps change gears perfectly through an infinite number of effective gear ratios. CVT replaces the planetary gear set of a standard automatic transmission with two variable-diameter pulleys, each shaped like a pair of opposing cones, with a metal belt or chain running between them. CVT systems provide more power, better fuel economy, and a convenient driving experience compared to traditional automatic transmission systems.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global continuously variable transmission system market to grow at a CAGR of 7.39% over the period 2014-2019.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) Systems 2015-2019

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Continuously Variable Transmission Systems: BorgWarner, Jatco, Punch Powertrain, Toyota Motors and ZF

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Aisin Seiki, Efficient Drivetrains, Folsom Technologies InternationalHunan Jianglu & Rongda, Hyundai Motor, IAV, Kohler Engines, Oerliokon Grazino and Subaru

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The time taken to shift gears in a CVT system is minimal compared to a manual transmission or a standard automatic transmission system. In a CVT system, the gear shift is done within a milliseconds. With each shift, there is real-time control of torque delivery of the engine. In conventional gear systems, gear shifts cause frictional losses. However, in CVT systems the friction loss created during gear shifts is reduced as they quickly synchronize with the torque required for the new gear. This provides with an enhanced driving experience. For example, the Nissan XTRONIC CVT shifts quickly to the optimum gear without power interruption and traction of the engine.”

According to the report, the demand for electric vehicles (EV) and hybrid vehicles has been high in the automotive industry during the past few years. Some of the factors contributing to this increase are growing environmental concerns, need to reduce CO² emissions, and increased efforts to make vehicles more fuel efficient. Additionally, this segment is expected to grow at significantly as newer models are likely to be launched during the forecast period owing to increased demand for hybrid and electric vehicles. For instance, Nissan and Toyota have a range of hybrid vehicles in the market, which include a broad range of CVT offerings. We envisage the demand for CVT to complement the growth in the global hybrid vehicles market during the forecast period.

Further, the report states that some operational issues have cropped up in CVT systems, which have led to its reduced adoption among end-users. This has had a negative impact on its market share as well.
