The torque, speed, and direction of the power supply can all be changed with geared devices. These systems gain a mechanical advantage by changing the gear ratio, which results in a torque change. Gear transmission is made up of two or more meshing gears that work in a specific order. In automobile systems, gears play an important role. Two or more meshing gears functioning in a particular sequence are known as a gear transmission. Gears are a significant component in the automotive systems. Due to enhanced product durability and vehicle fuel efficiency, automatic transmission has gained pace in the automotive transmission gears market. A technologically designed gear system aids in the smooth operation of the engine and prevents engine losses caused by friction and lubrication.
Furthermore, new prospects for the automotive transmission gear market are projected to arise as the automotive sector develops in emerging nations such as India and Brazil.
The global automotive transmission gears market was valued at US$ 24,356.1Mn in 2021 and is expected to reach US$ 47,538 Mn by 2030, at a CAGR of 8.3% between 2022 and 2030.
Global Automobile Transmission Gears Market - Impact of Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic
COVID-19 pandemic has shutdown the production of various products in the global automotive gears industry, mainly owing to the prolonged lockdown in major countries, globally. The production across industries has been limited due to the pandemic resulting in the shortage of raw materials for automotive transmission gears. The major demand for equipment and machinery was previously noticed from giant manufacturing countries including the U.S., Germany, Italy, the U.K., and China, which is badly affected by the spread of coronavirus, thereby halting the demand for equipment and machinery. Suppliers of auto-parts have partially resumed manufacturing operations, as cash liquidity is posing a severe challenge for them, owing to pre-shutdown payments dry-ups. This leads to a supply chain choke-points and slowdown in the manufacturing process of automakers. However, the suppliers are making substantial moves to ramp-up their operations and purchase raw materials, though it is going to be a high pressing issue in a short-order timespan.
Global Automobile Transmission Gears Market - Restraint
The automotive industry is shifting from traditional gasoline vehicles to electric automobiles globally. When compared to traditional fuels burning within IC engines, an electric vehicle does not require gears because the electric engine generates more force at zeroRPM, a hands-free control system. Product pricing is one of the key factors that needs to be taken into consideration while designing marketing strategies. Competitive product pricing strongly influences the market demand for gearing systems, in the price sensitive markets of region such as Europe, Asia Pacific, and others.
Among regions, Asia Pacific held a dominant position in the global automatic transmission gear market in 2021 Statistics:
The Asia Pacific held a dominant position in the global satellite internet market in 2021, accounting for 6.2% share, in terms of value, followed by Europe and North America.

The Asia Pacific is expected to witness significant growth in the global automotive transmission gears market. Asia Pacific region is the largest market for automotive transmission gears, wherein countries such as China and India have a majority of share of a vehicle installed with manual transmission. Furthermore, in India, the new models of low-end and high-end passenger vehicles are equipped with Automatic Manual Transmission (AMT) systems. For instance, in 2014, the Maruti Suzuki, an Indian automobile manufacturer, based in New Delhi, launched its first passenger car ‘Celerio’ installed with Automatic Manual Technology in India.

The increasing demand for automatic transmission is driving the global automotive transmission gears market growth. Moreover, high business potential in passenger car segment in the emerging countries of Asia Pacific is expected to drive the growth of this market. Enterprises in automotive industry focus on incorporating new features in modern vehicles, in terms of comfort and safety. These enterprises are taking all possible measures to maintain their competitive hold and sustain their business operations in growing stiff competition among automakers across the global marketplace. In the recent past, there has been drastic change in consumer demographics with increase in income level and change in lifestyle trends. Currently, consumers prefer automobiles equipped with automatic transmission gears to offer a comfortable and smooth driving experience in bumper-to-bumper congested traffic in metro cities. Therefore, to offer consumers a smooth, comfortable drive, it is critical to prevent vibration from powertrain mechanisms from reaching the passenger area. Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) gears provide drivers with an improved driving experience by enabling smooth gear shifting and enhanced acceleration. Demand for vehicles with high fuel efficiency is driving the dual-clutch transmission market. Local and central government bodies of developed and emerging economies such as the U.S., the U.K., Brazil, Singapore, and India have introduced regulations, policies, and initiatives to promote the reduction of CO2 emissions.
For instance, in October 2019, Magna International Inc., a Canadian mobility technology company for automakers, signed a multi-year contract with Bayerische Motoren Werke AG (BMW), a German automobile manufacturer. Under this contract, Magna International Inc. will be supplying front-wheel drive dual-clutch transmissions to BMW.
The global automotive transmission gears market is expected to grow significantly during the forecast period, owing to the increasing popularity of automatic transmission gears in modern/high-end cars. Automakers have invested in Automated Manual Transmission (AMT) technology to significantly improve the performance and efficiency of automatic passenger cars. In the Asia Pacific region, consumer preference towards adoption of automatic passenger vehicles is on the rise, owing to the widespread usage of automatic manual transmission gears systems in modern cars that ease driving in traffic congestion areas. The shift in consumer preference creates immense opportunity for AMT gear manufacturers to expand their footprint in the APAC region in order to grab significant market share in the growing passenger cars market.
