Global Dual Clutch Transmission Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 29.03 Bn by 2030.
A dual-clutch transmission (DCT) also referred to as double-clutch transmission is an automated manual transmission in automotive vehicles, which uses two separate clutches for odd and even gear sets. It is closely related to manual transmission and is operated in a fully automatic mode. However, many of those have the ability to allow a driver to manually shift gears in semi-automatic mode. The DCT technology provides two manual transmissions, each offering a specific torque path. One path provides first, third, fifth and possibly seventh gears, while the other provides even-numbered ratios and reverse gear. DCT is typically used to satisfy strict emission norms, for fuel efficiency and enhanced performance.
