The automotive transmission market refers to the industry that designs, develops, and produces transmissions for vehicles. The transmission is an essential component of a vehicle to transfer power from the engine to the wheels, enabling the smooth operation of the vehicle. The global automotive transmission market is anticipated to grow significantly during the forecast period, driven by factors such as the increasing demand for fuel-efficient vehicles, advancements in technology, and the rising popularity of electric vehicles. Consequently, transmission plays a critical role in the operation of a vehicle and is essential for ensuring the vehicle's performance, efficiency, and safety.

The advancement in technology such as the emergence of dual-clutch transmissions (DCTs) is a significant driver for the growth of the automotive transmission market. DCTs use two separate clutches, one for even gears and the other for odd gears, allowing for quicker and smoother gear shifts resulting in improved performance and fuel efficiency, particularly in high-performance vehicles and sports cars. Additionally, DCTs shift gears quickly, in less than 100 milliseconds that allows for more precise control over the engine's power delivery, resulting in improved acceleration and overall performance. For instance, in March 2022, Tata Motors launched the ALTROZ DCA with a Dual Clutch Automatic transmission to offer superior performance, fuel efficiency, and reliability. The integration of DCT technology enables fast gear changing that improves fuel efficiency and enhances the user experience.

The emergence of autonomous vehicles is expected to open up potential future opportunities for the automotive transmission market. Autonomous vehicles are projected to offer higher fuel efficiency compared to traditional vehicles, as autonomous vehicles are programmed to optimize driving behavior for maximum efficiency. However, strict government regulations on the use of IC vehicles and emission standards are the significant factors restraining the growth of the automotive transmission market.
