Use of carbon fiber to make drivetrain components to drive market growth. Carbon fiber is being widely used to manufacture components for highly demanding applications. Composite fibers are being used for manufacturing driveshaft and chassis components of heavy-duty commercial vehicles and high-performance sports cars. The horsepower of a high-performance vehicle's rear wheels equipped with carbon fiber drivetrain components shows significant improvement when compared to steel or aluminum. analysts have predicted that the automotive drivetrain market will register a CAGR of close to 3% by 2023.
Surging demand for automobiles
Production patterns in the globe automotive drivetrain market depend largely on the growth of the automotive market. The drivetrain is a fundamental part of an automotive to transfer power from the engine to the wheels. Hence. the increasing demand for automobiles will drive the production of automotive drivetrains during the forecast period. APAC is projected to report the highest automobile sales during the forecast period. Strong sales of passenger cars and commercial vehicles in APAC are expected to boost the production of automotive drivetrains and related components during the forecast period.
Highly complex production process
The increased complexity in drivetrain production is a major operational challenge that will deter technological advances in the global automotive drivetrain market during the forecast period. Complex production processes can prevent prospective players from entering the global automotive drivetrain market, and can also dissuade existing players from adopting advanced technologies for producing superior and lightweight drivetrain components such as hollow driveshafts.
