Automotive Differential Market is Projected to Reach Around USD 31.8 Billion by 2027

The Global Automotive Differential Market is projected to reach around USD 31.8 billion by 2027 at a CAGR of around 4.42%.

The automotive differential is designed to transfer the torque/power generated from the driveshaft and allow wheels to rotate and spin at a different speed. This is an essential component when the vehicle turns and by making the wheel that is running around the outside of the turning curve roll far and faster than each other. Differential is needed between each set of drive wheel’s one is in the front wheel and the other is in the back wheel as the front wheel travel at a different distance during a turn than the back wheel.

Automotive Differential Market: Driver & Restraint

Market Driver:

Rise in Heavy-Commercial Vehicles

Automotive differential plays an important role in all-wheel-drive vehicles as it allows the wheel to rotate at different speeds. Due to the rise in industrial production and urbanization, demand for heavy commercial vehicles such as tractors, trucks, trailers, and others has increased which is directly propelling the automotive differential market growth. According to International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers (OICA) in 2018, around 26 million commercial vehicles were sold globally.

Therefore, the rise in heavy-commercial vehicles is expected to drive market growth during the forecast period.

Increase in Vehicle Production

Due to the rise in vehicle production in developing countries and economic growth in regions such as India, Japan, Malaysia, Russia, Brazil, and others have increased the demand for the automotive differential market. According to OICA, in 2018, India, Malaysia, Thailand, Russia, and others are the prominent countries that have shown positive growth of 8%, 12.2%, 9%, 13.9%, respectively.

Thus, the growing vehicle production is anticipated to boost the market growth during the forecast period.

Market Restraint:

Growing Demand for Electric Vehicles

Electric vehicles are powered by in-wheel motors so they can deliver torque independently and directly to the wheels without having differential. These vehicles use electric powertrain systems which erase the requirement of differentials. The growing demand for electric vehicles acts as the major restraint for the automotive differential market. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), in 2018, the global electric car sales increased by 2 million compared to 2017.

Hence, the growing demand for electric vehicles is expected to restrain the market during the forecast period.
