Drive Assy Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Growing demand for automated guided vehicles - The demand for drive assy is growing among manufacturers of automated guided vehicles (AGVs) due to the growing demand for AGVs worldwide. By 2025, it is foreseen that the number of automated guided vehicles (AGVs) on the global drive assy market will exceed 272,700 units.

    Automated guided vehicles are extensively deployed in the warehouse and logistics industry owing to their ability to enhance efficiency, limit labor costs, and improve safety. These vehicles are designed to transport goods and materials within a facility without the need for human intervention. To enable smooth and precise movement of AGVs, high-quality drive assemblies are required. These drive assemblies provide the necessary power transmission, control, and maneuverability for AGVs to navigate through complex environments, follow designated paths, and avoid obstacles.
  • Growing demand for automation and robotics - Automation and robotics are becoming increasingly prevalent in industries such as manufacturing, logistics, and healthcare. Drive assemblies play a crucial role in powering and controlling the movement of automated systems, thus driving the demand for drive assemblies.

    Furthermore, advancements in drive assembly technology, such as the development of compact and efficient designs, allow for seamless integration into automated systems. These innovations further enhance the performance and capabilities of automation and robotics, driving the need for more advanced drive assemblies.
  • A surge in industrialization - As industrialization continues to expand globally, there is an increasing need for machinery and equipment that require drive assemblies. Industries such as mining, construction, and energy rely on drive assemblies for the efficient operation of heavy machinery and equipment.

    With industrialization comes the demand for efficient power transmission and control systems, which is where drive assemblies play a vital role. Drive assys including gears and pinions help transmit power and torque, enabling the smooth operation of machinery and equipment


  • High cost of the tools to restrain the growth of the market - The drive assembly drive assy market faces cost pressures due to the need for continuous innovation and advancements in technology. Manufacturers need to invest in research and development to stay competitive, which can increase production costs. Hence, the end product price also increases which further hinders the adoption of drive assy.
  • Technological complexity of drive assy.
  • Surging cyber threat - With the deployment of advanced technology such as AI and IoT the prevalence of cyber attacks also increases. This refrains end users from opting for this product. As a result, owing to this factor the drive assy market might face restrain in its growth.

Drive Assy Segmentation

Distribution Channel (OEM, Aftermarket)

In drive assy market, OEM segment is poised to dominate around 53% share by the end of 2036. OEMs play a vital role in ensuring quality control and adhering to industry standards. They are responsible for maintaining consistent production standards and delivering reliable drive assemblies to their customers.

 Also, OEMs work closely with vehicle manufacturers to design and develop drive assemblies that meet specific requirements, such as performance, durability, and cost-effectiveness. Furthermore, the expansion of the automotive industry, and the growing demand for technological innovation are escalating the growth of the segment. OEMs strive to provide innovative drive assembly solutions that meet the changing needs of vehicle manufacturers.

Component (Chain & Sprocket, Gear & Pinion, Converters, Motors, Couplings)

In drive assy market, gear & pinion segment is estimated to account for more than 34% revenue share by the end of 2036. Gear and pinion drives offer a wide range of speed and torque for the same input power, with more precise timing than a chain system, less noise & friction loss, and other advantages over other parts. Since the gear provides positive drive, a high-velocity ratio can be achieved in the least amount of area.

Also, there is a growing demand for fuel-efficient vehicles and the need for noise reduction.  For instance, the 2022 new model vehicle’s fuel efficiency is estimated to be over 25 mpg. Whereas, the 2002 model vehicles’ fuel efficiency was approximately 18 mpg – indicating an improvement of about 34%. Moreover, manufacturers in this segment constantly innovate to develop gears and pinions with improved efficiency, reduced weight, and enhanced performance.
