Automatic Transmission Market Overview
Transmission system provides required torque delivery from the engine to the driven vehicle. Transmission system uses set of pulleys or gears to ensure the required speed and alternating torque from engine to the wheel of the vehicle. Automatic transmission has several advantages such as transferring power from engine to wheel, easy to handle, etc.
Automatic transmission shifts the gear ratios automatically and hence make the task easy for the driver. Process of automatic transmission involves the transmission of engine torque so that upshift and downshift are managed automatically without any assistance of driver. Automatic transmission system are gaining demand in the developing economies as it is easy to handle and maintain as compared to manual automatic system.
Automatic transmission make it easy to drive in heavy traffic by adjusting the gear automatically. Consumers’ main preference is to focus on the fuel efficient system without compromising with the efficiency of the vehicle. Automatic transmission is preferred over the manual one because of its prominent features of higher fuel efficiency, better comfort and increased power.
Automatic transmission enhances driving experience due to improved acceleration and auto gear shifting. Rising fuel prices has shifted the focus of the consumer towards more efficient fuel systems. Technological advancement has led to the launch of 9-speed automatic transmission, continuous variable transmission and dual shaft gearboxes.
Convenience and comfort offered by automatic transmission system is one of the most prominent driver to accelerate the growth of automatic transmission global market. The main reasons for opting for this technology are fuel efficiency, augmented power requirements, growing demand for vehicle performance and growing comfort levels. However, higher preliminary cost and low implementation rates in high volume markets have restrained the development of new technologies.
