In automobiles, powertrain incorporates every component that converts the engine power into movement. It generates power and uses that power to drive the vehicle. It includes the engine, transmission, driveshafts, clutch/torque converter, differential, axles, drive wheels, propeller, and so on. Hybrid powertrains on the other hand include one or more electric traction motors that operate to drive the vehicle wheels. The powertrain of any automobile defines its performance, comfort, and safety. The gasoline powertrains are currently the most widely used in vehicles. But due to an increase in the cost of gasoline, they are expected to be replaced by diesel powertrains. Additionally, with the rising demands of automated vehicles, the use of electronic sensors in powertrains is gaining popularity to monitor position, speed, gas, pressure, and temperature. These sensors are required for efficient and safe operations of powertrains.
The global automotive powertrain market is expected to grow from $692.9 billion in 2019 to $1,228.3 billion in 2027, at the CAGR of 7.4% from 2020 to 2027.
The major factors that have impacted the growth of the automotive powertrain market are government reforms for minimizing carbon emission which has increased the need for engine downsizing and increasing adoption of hybrid and electric vehicles which has increased the need for high-end powertrain systems, among others.
Government reforms for minimizing carbon emissions:
The governments across the world are forming stringent government reforms to minimize the carbon emissions and integrate safety features in the vehicles. Automobile emits carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases such as automobile produced methane, nitrous oxide from the tailpipe and hydrofluorocarbon emission from leaking air conditioners. The countries are looking at electric vehicles as the future as they emit fewer emissions which may affect the powertrain market. The UK government and local councils are taking initiatives for accelerating the number of electric vehicles on the road. The growing stringent reforms have motivated the automotive manufacturers for vehicle downsizing to reduce the fuel consumption as well as harmful emissions in their vehicles which in turn is expected to drive the powertrain market growth.
Increasing adoption of Hybrid and Electric Vehicles:
The hybrid and electric vehicles lower down harmful tailpipe such as particulates (soot), volatile organic compounds, hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, ozone, lead, and various oxides of nitrogen. The electric cars can improve air quality in cities and towns. The hybrid produces low carbon dioxide as compared to internal combustion vehicles which considerably reduces air pollution. A single hybrid car has the potential to save an average of 1.5 million grams of CO2. The growing focus on Modern drive technology to reduce emission level of vehicles is gaining popularity among consumers. The electric and hybrid vehicles are integrated with electric motor and battery in the powertrain. The powertrain will be integrated with high-end sensors which will improve the efficiency of the engine and optimize the fuel economy which may accelerate the powertrain market growth.
