Global Automotive Differential Industry To 2026



DUBLIN, September 28, 2021 / PRNewswire / – The “Automotive Differential Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity, and Forecast 2021-2026” report was added to offer.

The global automotive differentials market has reached a value of US $ 18.1 billion in 2020. Looking ahead, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.8% during 2021-2026. Bearing in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, the analyst is continuously monitoring and evaluating the direct and indirect influence of the pandemic. This information is included in the report as a major contributor to the market.

An automotive differential is a train of gears that allows the wheels to turn at different speeds while turning. It divides the engine torque into two separate units, allowing them to multiply the engine power and spin the wheels at different speeds. The differential is usually present in the rear axle assembly of the rear drive wheels and consists of pinion bearings, side and side gears, side bearings and differential case and drive gears. The open, locking, limited slip, limited slip and electronically controlled torque vector differential are the commonly used variations that are being added to passenger and utility vehicles.

The significant growth of the automotive industry is one of the key factors creating a positive outlook for the market. In addition, the growing demand for commercial and heavy duty vehicles is also driving the growth of the market. The differential is a crucial component in automobiles which helps to easily maneuver the vehicle through bends with improved traction control and to prevent accidents. The widespread adoption of the electronically limited slip differential (ELSD) acts as another growth factor. It is mainly used in sports and off-road cars which provide improved braking systems, off-road and on-road driving experience, vehicle comfort and stability on slippery roads. Other factors, such as increasing consumer spending capabilities, growing preference for luxury and semi-utility vehicles (SUVs) and extensive research and development (R&D) to produce more cost-effective variants and more efficient, should stimulate the market.
