All-wheel drive systems were introduced in the automotive industry during 1980s in developed regions such as Europe and North America. Advancement in technology and emphasis on research and development has given a new face to these systems.
At present, AWD systems are classified into automatic and manual systems. Manual AWD systems require human intervention for initiation of the process whereas automatic systems have intelligent control over the process. In earlier days, these systems were available only in high-end premium segment cars and their advantages unknown to the majority of the consumers around the world. The introduction of AWD systems in small passenger cars and other vehicles has increased the demand globally. Additionally, increasing demand for SUVs globally, increased safety awareness; affordability, fuel efficiency, stability, and control are factors which are currently driving the demand of multi-wheel drive systems.
This report classifies and defines the automatic and manual AWD systems market in terms of volume and value. This report provides comprehensive analysis and insights on the multi-wheel drive systems (both qualitative and quantitative). The report highlights potential growth opportunities in the coming years as well as it covers review of market drivers, restraints, growth indicators, challenges, legislation trends, market dynamics, competitive landscape, and other key aspects with respect to multi-wheel drive systems.
This report classifies the automatic and manual all-wheel drive systems market by regions (Asia-Oceania, North America, Europe, and RoW); by vehicle type (passenger cars, light-duty commercial vehicles, and heavy-duty commercial vehicles); and by system type (automatic and manual). The key players in the automatic and manual AWD systems market have also been identified and profiled.
In Europe and North America, the automatic and manual automotive multi-wheel drive systems are well-established and have a higher penetration rate. Use of these systems is also growing significantly in the Asia-Oceania and RoW regions owing to an increase in the consumer purchasing power and their preference for better safety measures. China, U.S, Germany, and U.K. are expected to be the largest markets for the multi-wheel drive systems. Developing countries such as India, Brazil, and Mexico are expected to show a higher growth rate in the demand for automatic and manual automotive multi-wheel drive systems from 2014-2019.
