Persistence Market Research
Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) is a type of slippery liquid which act as a lubricant for easy movement of all moving parts inside a transmission system. Automatic transmission system is a more evolved and technically upgraded transmission system in comparison to manual transmission system as automatic transmission minuses human intervention of shifting gear with correspondence to speed. Automatic transmission system is a more complex system than manual transmission system and it therefore requires a more technologically advanced fluid to ensure proper function ability. ATF also acts as a cooling agent for automatic transmission system as automatic transmission system generates lot of heat during to rotation of gears. ATF can also be used as hydraulic fluid for power steering systems. Most ATFs contain combination of various additives that enhances lubricating qualities such as anti-wear additives, rust and corrosion inhibitors, detergents, dispersants and surfactants, as well as other compounds and chemicals which can contribute towards better durability of automatic transmission system. ?
Automatic Transmission Fluid Market: Market Dynamics and Restraints
Majorly, increasing adoption of automatic transmission system all over globe is driving the market of ATF globally. Vehicles with automatic transmission system is increasing rapidly as various automobile manufacturers are introducing automatic transmission in their line of brands to offer better driving experience to customers. An automatic transmission system allows the automobilist to pay more attention to the road instead of being worrying of getting distracted by all the extra effort required for lever shift. Thus increasing adoption of automatic transmission system is pulling up the demand of ATF. Since ATF can also be used as hydraulic oil for power steering system of 4WD, use of ATF will be also driven by increase in power steering system in vehicles and air compressor. Apart from regular passenger cars various other vehicles such as HMV, special armored vehicles, cranes etc. in near future will be installed with automatic transmission system which will again create a new space for the growth of ATF market.
Decline in production of crude oil, steep fall in automobile manufacturing due to decline in demand, and recent turmoil in Arab spring, ban on export and import amongst countries, economic sanctions, and increase in adoption of electrical vehicle will bring in circumstance which brings in possibility to destabilize the ATF market.
