Europe Electric Power Steering Market Analysis
The European electric power steering market was valued at USD 5.2 billion in 2020, and it is expected to reach USD 6.9 billion by 2026. It is estimated to register a CAGR of 3.9% during the forecast period, 2021-2026.
The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in the negative growth of the already struggling automotive industry. The pandemic resulted in lockdowns and shutdowns, thereby halting production and operations for a few months. As the economies are slowly recovering, it is expected that the market would grow positively in the forecast period.
The increased production of automobiles, constant technological advancements in the European automotive sector, and the increasing demand for fuel-efficient vehicles with effective steering systems are expected to propel the growth of the market over the forecast period.
Most vehicles today are heavy and equipped with front-wheel drive. Hence, the tire diameters are also increased according to vehicle requirements. To reduce the manual effort, power steerings were introduced to assist the driver. This feature has gradually become commonplace across all new vehicles. Among the different types of steering systems available nowadays, electric power steering is one of them.

Europe Electric Power Steering Market Trends
This section covers the major market trends shaping the Europe Electric Power Steering Market according to our research experts:
Technological Advancements in Steering Systems Would Drive the Market
Increasing technological advancements in steering systems have paved the way for many components like sensors to replace the traditional steering parts such as hoses, belts, and pumps. Sensors give out accurate readings both in terms of position and performance indicators. Usually, steerings are equipped with sensors like torque sensors, angle and acceleration sensors, wheel speed sensors, etc.
Steering sensors find their extensive application in electric hybrid and pure electric vehicles. The demand for fuel-efficient vehicles in the light of the regulatory standards of EC and EPA would drive the growth of electric vehicles and, in turn, the steering sensors sales. Rising concerns about passenger safety have obliged automobile manufacturers to equip their vehicles with driver assistance systems, including steering assistance systems. The integration of numerous steering sensors in electric power steering (EPS) helps provide additional safety benefits to the driver.
In order to have an edge over competitors, the companies have been actively working to bring in advanced features with respect to steering systems. For instance,
- In January 2021, Nexteer Automotive invested in Tactile Mobility, a sensing and data company that collects data using vehicles’ built-in, non-visual sensors, including wheel speed, wheel angle, RPM, paddles position, gear position, and then analyzes it to yield actionable insights in real-time. With this collaboration, Nexteer is trying to offer an enhanced steering experience to its customers.
- In July 2020, NSK Ltd developed a non-contact torque sensor capable of measuring the torque in vehicles in real-time. This is the first sensor in the world of this type and capability.

Germany is Projected to Hold a Major Share in the Market
Increasing production and sales of vehicles in Europe is the primary factor that is expected to drive the market in the forecast period. Both passenger cars and commercial vehicle sales have been seeing a steady demand over few years. In 2020, new passenger vehicle registrations in the European Union (EU) were recorded at 9,942,509 cars. With almost 2,917,678 unit sales in 2020, Germany remained by far the largest new car market in Europe and performed the best of the large countries. This is mainly because the country is home to major automotive companies and concrete manufacturing capabilities when it comes to automobiles.
The demand for light commercial vehicle rentals has also been growing in Europe due to the growth in e-commerce, logistics, and industries in the region. In 2020 total Europe recorded 2.5 million new LCV registrations. This is evident as most of the sales are recorded by rental companies in the region. Moreover, new commercial vehicle registrations in the European Union increased by 1.2%. All vehicle segments made a positive contribution to the growth of the market. Demand was largely driven by the Central European countries, given that registrations in all key Western European markets showing active signs of growth in the region.
