Key Market Trends

Increasing Sales of Electric and Hybrid Vehicles are Expected to Drive the Market

The electric vehicle (EV) market has witnessed significant growth due to the need for addressing future energy requirements. The need to attain sustainable transportation plays a significant role in driving electric vehicle demand. The EV market is coming up as an integral part of the automotive industry and represents a pathway towards achieving energy efficiency along with reduced emission of pollutants and other greenhouse gases.

The sales of Electric drive axle are expected to grow, as every year sales of Electric Vehicles are growing. In 2017, global Electric Vehicle sales were 1 million units which were increased to 2 million units in 2018.

Many major automobile technology companies are working towards improving electric drive axle technology. For instance, in 2017; GKN Automotive announced that the company has developed a semi-integrated co-axial single-speed electric axle system. According to the company, this eAxle will provide hybrid and electric modes along with energy-efficient AWD functionality to maximize customer benefit.

Another automobile technology company Continental AG in 2019 has announced that the company is developing a fully integrated Axle Drive for mass production. According to the company, the highly integrated axle drive comes in two performance levels, 120 kW and 150 kW. The 150-kW electric axle will provide a torque of 310 Nm which is nearly equivalent to torque provided by two-liter turbo diesel engine.

Automotive Electric Drive Axle Market Key Trends

Asia-Pacific to Dominate Automotive Electric Drive Market During the Forecast Period
