Global Automotive Drivetrain Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Domination of Internal Combustion Engine Powertrain – which makes it mandatory to ensure that the optimized drivetrain configuration is robust to different driving conditions as the drivetrain and shifting control strategy has an important role in the carbon monoxide CO, nitrogen oxide NOx, and hydrocarbons HC generated by the internal combustion engine (ICE). For Instance, out of 278 million vehicles registered in the United States in 2018, nearly 94% had a gasoline powertrain while ~3.5% had a diesel powertrain.
  • Rising Demand for Lightweight Components – as using high-efficiency engines and lightweight components enabled by advanced materials in at least ~25% of fleets in United States could save over 5 billion gallons of fuel annually by 2030.
  • Upsurge in the Demand for Luxury Cars – For instance, the share of new vehicles sold by luxury brands in United States was ~17% in June 2022.
  • Increasing Emissions Caused by the Transport Sector – where road transport accounts for ~25% of transport emissions, and ~15% of total CO2 emissions.
  • Growing Demand for Vehicles with Automatic Transmission - according to the statistics, ~ 96% of Americans drive automatics in 2022.


  • Volatility in Material Cost
  • Requires Huge Investment
  • High Cost of Various Components Required for a Drivetrain

Global Economic Impact

Request Insights
Despite Inflation & Fearing Recession, Businesses Across the Globe Expected to Do Better in 2023:

In 2023, market players might incur losses due to huge gap in currency translation followed by contracting revenues, shrinking profit margins & cost pressure on logistics and supply chain.
Controlling Inflation has become the first priority for global economies from last quarter of 2022 and to be followed in 2023. With skewed economic situations, rise in interest rate by governments to control spending and inflation, spiked oil and gas prices, high inflation, geo-political issues including U.S. & China trade war, Russia-Ukraine conflict to intensify the global economic issues.
The interest rates in the U.S. may be less sensitive in 2023 as compared to 2022; sigh of relief for businesses. Positive business sentiments, healthy business balance sheets, growth in construction spending (private construction value in 2022 stood at $1,429.2 billion, 11.7 percent (±1.0 percent) above the $1,279.5 billion spent in 2021, Residential construction in 2022 was $899.1 billion, up by 13.3 percent (±2.1 percent) from $793.7 billion in 2021, non-residential construction touched $530.1 billion, 9.1 percent (±1.0 percent) above the $485.8 billion in 2021.) showcases minimal impact of recession in the country.
Similarly, spiked spending in the European and major Asia economics including, India, China & Japan to showcase less impact on the global demand.
