Automotive differential allows the wheels to rotate at different speeds while turning, as the outer wheels have to cover a larger circumference resulting in smooth turning. Other than this, automotive differential helps in multiplying engine power and reducing speed at the output. Automotive differential is the part of rear axle assembly of rear-wheel drives, also consisting of rear drive axles and rear axle housing, which is the final end of drive train. Pinion bearings, spider & side gears, side bearings, differential case and differential drive gears are some of the components incorporated in differential assemblies. The global automotive differential market is expected to show single digit growth over the forecast period. This is due to the reason that OEMs are shifting their focus from two-wheel drive to four-wheel drive and open differentials to electronic components differentials to enhance fuel-efficiency for increasing vehicle performance. Asia Pacific market is expected to dominate the global automotive differential market over the forecast period.

 

Automotive Differential Market: Dynamics

Drivers

Strong demand for crossovers and SUVs across the U.S. and Europe owing to comfortable rides and extra boot space is the key factor for the growth of global automotive differential market. Furthermore, decline in auto loan interest rates leading to increasing car sales across the U.S. is another driving factor for global automotive differential market over the forecast period. Moreover, simple design, quiet and smooth operation and no requirement of friction modifiers by limited slip differentials are expected to drive the market of automotive differential over the next decade.

Restraints:

Limited sensitivity of electronic control unit (ECU) differentials through delay in response time actuators and time caused by sensors are the factors hindering the growth of global automotive differential market over the forecast period.

Trends:

Adoption of electronically controlled limited-slip differential system in mid-segment cars and increased focus of automotive manufacturers to replace mechanical components/parts with compact electronic components are gaining traction in the market. This is due to its full traction benefit, driving benefits, handling benefits during sudden yaw dampening and demand for electronic parts in place of mechanical parts due to minimized wear and tear resulting in cutting down the maintenance costs.

Automotive Differential Market: Segmentation

Global automotive differential market is segmented on the basis of product type, vehicle type and motive mechanism.

Automotive Differential Market: Region-wise Outlook

Asia Pacific is expected to be the dominant market in terms of revenue and volume as the demand for four-wheel drive is expected to gain popularity over the next decade in countries such as India, China and South Korea. Western Europe, followed by North America is expected to gain traction owing to increasing demand for passenger cars and show significant growth over the forecast period. Latin America and Eastern Europe automotive differential markets are expected to show slow growth as in these regions the two-wheel drive is popular, and is expected to decline. Middle East and Africa automotive differential market is expected to show steady growth since the adoption of advanced technology related to four-wheel drive in countries such as UAE, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia is relatively high.
