Growth Drivers & Challenges

The increasing sales of vehicles are the major factor which is responsible for the growth of automotive differential market. In addition to this, the global automotive industry is driven by a number of factors such as rinsing consumer’s affordability, growing income of consumers and availability of easy financing options to buy a vehicle. Further, this growth in automotive industry is fuelling the growth of automotive differential market.

Additionally, changing lifestyle of consumers and rising preference for cars over motor bikes is a key factor which has led leading automakers to expand their production range to meet the increasing demand for vehicles across all regions. For instance, total global production of cars in 2016 reached 72,105,435 as compared to 68,539,516 in 2015. Automakers such as Jaguar Land Rovers and BMW are executing aggressive expansion plan to boost the production and sales of the company across the globe. This factor is projected to bolster the growth of automotive differential market in future.

Growing popularity of Elsd (Electric Limited slip differentials) due to its features such as better torque distribution and better handling during string curves is likely to drive the growth of automotive differential market over the forecast period. Manufacturers are advancing their automotive parts to improve the performance of the vehicles. For instance, Mitsubishi's active center differential lets drivers to choose specific presets according driving situations such as while driving on the road, gravel or snow.

However, factors which are limiting the sales of new vehicle such as presence of on-demand taxi operators and growing preference for public transport among a part of population are projected to adversely affect the growth of global automotive differential market over the forecast period.
