Market Overview

The x-by-wire system market is anticipated to register a CAGR of about 11.5% during the forecast period (2020 - 2025).

  • The emergence of advanced driver assistance systems and the increasing levels of automation in vehicles are expected to increase the demand for automotive x-by-wire systems. However, currently, these systems have low penetration rates in the automotive market, owing to reliability issues, primarily due to instances of failure.
  • Owing to the demand for lighter vehicles with improved efficiency, x-by-wire systems will exhibit a significant growth rate in future due to their lightweight as they reduce or eliminate the usage of mechanical components with electronic control systems that are also easy to tune and service.
  • Among x-by-wire systems, steer-by-wire and brake-by-wire systems are expected to witness the highest growth rates during the forecast period, owing to continuous technological advancements, coupled with new product developments by major players

Key Market Trends

Increasing Demand for Electrical cars and Autonomous Cars

The adoption rate of electric vehicles is increasing across the globe and the sales of electric and hybrid vehicles will show a significant growth during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to the stringent emission norms and increased battery density. The ADAS features, which were earlier offered only in the high-end luxury cars are now being offered in entry level models.

From 2020, all the newly manufactured cars in the US will come installed with Automatic braking system, Lane Departure Warning System and Parking assistance system. This factor is expected to fuel the market for x by wire systems.

The autonomous car manufacturers will soon reach level 5 autonomy in which steering wheel’s mechanical movement will be picked by sensors and electric control units will convert these signals into electronic signals that will control the electric motors for the movement of wheels.

China and India have manufacturing plants of some of the major OEMs that caters to global and local needs. Due to increase in disposable income of customers and infrastructure development in this region, demand for passenger cars and commercial vehicles is rising. China’s adoption rate of electric vehicles is very high and it is constantly investing in reducing the weight of the vehicle. This is driving the installation rate of x by wire systems in vehicles.

X-by-wire System Market

North America is Leading the X-by-wire System Market

Geographically, the market studied is led by North America, followed by Asia-Pacific. In 2019, the United States dominated the North American region and accounted for approximately 72% of the regional share.

Shift by wire systems and throttle by wire systems enjoys a healthy share of x by wire system market in the US.

Additionally, with the growing demand for the adoption of electric and hybrid vehicles, electric vehicle manufacturers are also looking forward to adopting brake-by-wire systems in their vehicles.

With the growing trend of autonomous vehicles in the United States, automobile manufacturers, such as BMW, Audi, and Daimler, are now introducing autonomous vehicles in the market, which is expected to further boost the demand for the x-by-wire market.

  • For instance, on June, 13 2018, Magna announced that it is partnering with May Mobility, an Ann Arbor, Michigan startup, for manufacturing self-driving shuttles, to retrofit and scale up May Mobility's unique fleet of low-speed electric micro shuttles, which were launched in the US market on June, 26 2018.

Furthermore, with growing environmental concerns, along with the enactment of stringent emission regulations, the demand for and adoption of electric vehicles have been continually increasing, which in turn, is propelling the demand for x-by-wire systems in the country.

The steering manufacturers, who are already present in the country, are making strategic partnerships and are expanding their businesses across the world. For instance, Nexteer Automotive announced that the company is expanding its strategic software investment.

  • The role of software in vehicles, especially in safety-critical steering, is evolving quickly. Nexteer’s software plays a critical role, including cybersecurity, in its products, such as steer-by-wire (SbW) and electric power steering systems (EPS).
  • Nexteer has also formed a joint venture with Dongfeng Motor Parts and Components Group Co. Ltd in China, which is expected to further boost the market for x-by-wire systems in the country.
