Automotive Clutch Market Overview
The global automotive clutch market is expected to witness considerable growth during the forecast period (2019–2030), owing to the growing production and sales of automobiles across the world. Clutch is an integral part of a vehicle that is responsible for controlling the speed of the vehicle. With the growing safety concern among users, the market for automotive clutches is expected to observe considerable advancements.
In terms of vehicle type, the automotive clutch market has been categorized into two-wheeler, three-wheeler, passenger car, light commercial vehicle (LCV), and medium and heavy commercial vehicle (M&HCV). Among these, passenger car is the largest category in the market and is expected to remain the dominant category during the forecast period as well. In 2018, more than 70.6 million passenger cars were produced, compared to 21.1 million LCVs and 4.3 million M&HCVs, globally. Thus, with the heavy production and sales of passenger cars across the world, the demand for automotive clutches used in these vehicles is increasing.
Based on transmission type, the automotive clutch market has been categorized into manual, semi-automatic, and automatic. Among these, the manual clutch was the largest category in the market in 2018. Most of the vehicles that are produced currently use manual clutches. However, with the increasing production and adoption of self-driven vehicles, as well as with the growing safety concern among users across the world, the demand for semi-automatic and automatic clutches are expected to rise in the coming years.
Geographically, Asia-Pacific (APAC) is the largest market for automotive clutches, owing to the largest share of automobiles being produced in the region. The growing urbanization in APAC, coupled with increasing disposable income of people, is boosting the demand for vehicles, which, in turn, is driving the growth of the automotive clutch market in the region.
Automotive Clutch Market Dynamics
The extensive use of hydraulic clutches in vehicles is a major trend observed in the automotive clutch market. The hydraulic clutch functions on a similar principle, as any other clutch works, but it has fewer components than its mechanical counterpart. This type of clutch comprises a reservoir filled with hydraulic fluid, and when the clutch pedal is pushed down, the fluid gets pressurized, which allows it to work with the clutch plate to detach the gear in use, and engage the new gear.
Automotive clutch allows the transmission of power from engine to gearbox, thereby controlling the speed and the functioning of a vehicle. This provides driver a smooth driving experience. It also prevents overloading of transmission and reduces the effect of torsional vibration, making it an essential component in the vehicle. Thus, benefits offered by the automotive clutch ensure the growth of the automotive clutch market.
