Industry definition and major segments

The clutch is a vehicle component that connects two or more rotating shafts. The clutch in a transmission car governs the connection between the motor shaft and the shafts that drive the wheels. Clutches require a mode of actuation to break the torque transfer. It is an essential aspect of the car’s operating mechanisms because the engine generates electricity and has components that are constantly rotating, but the wheels do not. The role and purpose of a clutch is to transfer torque from a spinning drive motor to the transmission.

Market trends

There is a growing need for high performance systems in the motorsports industry to deliver full power density, driving the growth of the automotive clutch market. However, the latest COVID-19 outbreak will limit the growth of the automotive transmission industry. Lockdowns in major economies have resulted in the closure of industrial plants and the halting of production and import of automotive products. Additionally, the low fuel efficiency of vehicles equipped with automated clutch systems is expected to slightly hamper the growth of the industry. Demand is also expected to be driven by the availability of low cost manual transmission clutches compared to torque converters with automatic transmission. Customer preference for more convenient modes of transportation and demand for passenger cars in developing markets are expected to drive consumer demand over the forecast period.

North America is expected to be the most dominant regional automotive clutch market over the forecast period owing to the growing demand for electric cars. Additionally, during the projected period, strong demand for vehicles in emerging economies such as China and India is expected to fuel the growth in the Asia-Pacific market. Demand for electric vehicles is growing in Asia-Pacific countries like Japan and China, two of the region’s biggest automotive hubs. The Indian automotive clutch market is expected to grow owing to improving economic conditions in the country, increasing disposable income, and a preference for automatic transmissions, especially AMT technology. Pushing the market further would be tougher emission standards and fuel efficiency requirements in Bharat’s Phase VI, which will see the production of lighter and more fuel-efficient clutch designs. The clutch market in Mexico is expected to grow in response to growing domestic demand for personal vehicles. Due to difficult economic conditions, Latin America is expected to experience a low growth rate; however, Brazil is expected to be a growing potential market.
