The global automotive clutch market was worth US$ 9.8 Billion in 2018. An automotive clutch is a mechanical device that is located between the engine and transmission system of a vehicle and is placed to transfer power from the engine and assist the user in shifting gears. The clutch engages and disengages the engine using a gearbox that rotates at varying speeds. The basic clutch mechanism consists of numerous components such as pilot bushing, crankshaft, flywheel, clutch disk, pressure plate and a throw-out bearing. Clutches are a part of both manual and automatic vehicles. A manually operated gearbox consists of a single clutch, whereas an automatic transmission vehicle has multiple clutches. It prevents the generation of friction between gears and any damage that might be caused by it.
A growing automotive industry coupled with the rising demand for electric vehicles are the key factors driving the growth of the market. The requirement for the automotive clutch is increased by advancements in the automotive industry and shifting preference from manual to semi-automatic or fully automatic transmission systems in vehicles. Furthermore, extensive research and development (R&D) activities and the growing need for fuel-efficient automotive systems have catalyzed the development of improved and advanced clutches such as Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) system, which is expected to create a positive outlook for the market. In addition to this, original equipment manufacturers (OEM) are expanding their production capacities by introducing innovative facilities to meet the growing demand of the consumers. Other factors positively influencing the market growth include increasing purchasing power, a rise in the standards of living and rapid urbanization in the emerging nations. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach a value of US$ 14.1 Billion by 2024, registering a CAGR of 6.3% during 2019-2024.
