In the automobile sector, to ensure the highest standards and to meet the product quality, durability, reliability, and safety of automobile, powertrain dynamometer plays an important role. As manufacturers and engineers of vehicles focus on providing vehicles with improved fuel economy and increased engine power, they need to test the power output and fuel efficiency of vehicle powertrain dynamometers. Dynamometer is a device used for measuring force, the moment of force (torque), and power. Power, force, and torque are very important terms related to the performance of a vehicle. For instance, if the vehicle consumes less power, it gives high mileage and consumes less fuel. Hence, measuring of force, torque, and power of an automotive powertrain is very important for manufacturers to provide best quality vehicle. Furthermore, dynamometers are used to simulate road loading on full powertrain and measure the vehicle’s ability to move or hold the RPM (revolutions per minute), according to the braking force applied. Hence, increasing production of automobiles is driving growth of the global automotive powertrain dynamometers market.

Original equipment manufacturers are expanding research and development efforts in order to produce cost-effective solutions employing cost-effective components. However, the prices of raw materials required to build powertrain dynamometers are fluctuating, and automakers are dealing with unpredictable pricing of integrated circuits, circuit boards, and other components.

Global Automotive Powertrain Dynamometers Market - Impact of Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic

  • COVID-19 is an unprecedented worldwide public health crisis that has impacted nearly every business, with long-term consequences that are expected to stifle industrial growth throughout the projection period. Covid-19 has impacted the market dynamics, competition, and global supply chains.
  • Sales and revenue of various manufacturing industries decreased gradually in 2020, similarly, the construction industry has been badly hit by COVID-19, owing to capital constraints created by lockdowns and delayed building projects. During the pandemic, several automotive companies halted their investment in R&D and reduced production capacities, which hampered the demand for test automation systems for powertrain dynamometers.
  • In post COVID-19 scenario, due to resumed production in the automobile sector, automotive test equipment might experience an increased growth rate, which can be attributed to the increasing regulations concerned with the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emission mission from the vehicles. The increasing energy conservation movement/regulations concerned with automobiles will also impact the automotive powertrain dynamometers market positively.

Asia Pacific is expected to hold dominant position in the global automotive powertrain dynamometers market during the forecast period.

Statistics:

Asia Pacific held dominant position in the global automotive powertrain dynamometers market in 2021, accounting for 40.0% share, in terms of value, followed by North America and Europe
