Driveline Control Systems and Devices Market: Overview
Technological advancements, modern automatics, high demand for smooth gear shifts and superior fuel efficiency vehicles are triggering the wave of the global driveline control system and devices market throughout the forecast period. Driveline control system primarily depends on rotational velocities and torques of transmission units as uniform torque distribution provides yaw stability to the vehicle and provides better vehicle performance. Therefore, traction and stability of a vehicle can be controlled by driveline system and braking torque. Four wheel drive manufacturers are implementing cutting-edge technologies, such as the transfer case, fluid coupling and Limited Slip Differential (LSD), for improving the traction and enhancing the handling performance by monitoring distribution of the driving torque. The primary components of a driveline system are engine, clutch, transmission, propeller shaft, final drive and wheels. Electronic devices, such as inductive sensor, are used for detecting the angular velocity of rotating wheels or transmission parts. The manufacturers are also utilizing driveline modelling technique for measuring the engine speed, transmission speed and wheel speed. For driveline modelling, lower gear is the prime focus as it transmits higher torque to the drive-in as well the amplitude of the resonance in the wheel speed is high for lower gears. The manufacturers are also poised towards pneumatic clutch actuator in automated manual transmissions while servo system for hydraulic clutch for easy operation of the clutch, provides lighter paddle force in comparison to cable clutch. Furthermore, the manufacturers are also providing Electronic Limited Slip Differential technology for filling the gap between four wheel drive and two wheel drive and delivering maximum tractive effort, higher torque capacity, better stability while cornering, and also to provide better controllability over the vehicle.
Driveline Control Systems and Devices Market: Dynamics
Demand for lightweight transmission system developed in governing automotive electronics, ease of gear shifting on congested roads, reduced clutch wear, extended component life are the factors driving the global driveline control system and devices market. Additionally, emerging state of the art technologies such as cruise control system, new driveline management applications and high powered engines may surge the future of this market. Moreover, increasing focus toward reduced pedal force, attenuated drive train noise and increased reliability are some of the factors driving the global driveline control system and device market during the forecast period.
High initial cost, regular maintenance, quick response as compared to manual transmissions and stretched time to change the gears are the factors that may hinder the market during the forecast period.
The governments all over the world have taken initiatives to reduce the emission of carbon mono oxide and nitrogen oxide, for instance, the Chinese government is spending a huge sum in R&D in order to improve the air quality by cutting edge vehicle technology, which is promoting new energy-efficient vehicles, such as hybrid vehicles, under stringent regulations and standards.
