Automotive transmission is what moves the power from the engine to the wheels. Transmissions are necessary for any motor vehicle in order to prevent the engine from destroying itself. Most car engines would shake themselves to pieces or overheat without a gearbox system. Furthermore, any car without a transmission would be unable to harness the engine’s speed, capping its maximum velocity. With rising sales of vehicles as well as cars, the demand for automotive transmission is on the rise amongst car users, which in turn, is expected to create massive revenue generation opportunities for the key players operating in the global automotive transmission market during the forecast period. For instance, nearly 2 million total cars sold were in China in 2020.    

Global Automotive Transmission Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Rising Demand for Gearboxes - a transmission allows you to harness your vehicle’s engine energy when necessary. By applying proper gear as per the need of speed, the transmission allows you to benefit from more of your car's power, rotating the wheels more slowly or quickly. The rising sales of gearboxes are expected to boost the automotive transmission market in the projected period. It was found that the sales volume of gearboxes and their parts for motor cars, tractors, and other motor vehicles, in 2018, amounted to more than 7 million sold items in the United Kingdom.

  • Increasing Number of Wheelsfor instance, there are an estimated 37 billion wheels worldwide as of October 2022.

  • Upsurge in the Production of Light Vehicles for instance, it is projected that ~99 million light vehicles will be produced worldwide by 2025.

  • Growing Volume of Autonomous Vehicles – which are expected to account for around 12% of global car registrations by 2030.

  • Rising Production of Truck Trailers – which was found to reach over 1 million units around the world in 2021.


  • Requires Huge Investment
  • High Cost of Various Components Required in a Transmission System
  • Volatility in Material Cost

The global automotive transmission market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by engine type segment into internal combustion engines (ICE) and electric engines. Amongst these segments, the electric engines segment is anticipated to garner the largest revenue by the end of 2033, backed by the growing fleet of electric vehicles along with the surge in the sales of electric cars worldwide. For instance, the electric car fleet is expected to become more than 300million in 2030 with electric cars accounting for 60% of new car sales.
