According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “ Automotive Clutch Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028,” the global automotive clutch market size reached US$ 12.4 Billion in 2022. An automotive clutch is a critical component in vehicles equipped with manual transmissions. It is responsible for engaging and disengaging the power transmission between the engine and the gearbox, allowing the driver to change gears smoothly while driving. The clutch consists of a friction plate, pressure plate, and release bearing. When the driver pushes on the clutch pedal, the friction plate disengages from the flywheel, interrupting the gearbox's power flow and enabling gear changes without stalling the engine. Upon releasing the clutch pedal, the friction plate makes contact with the flywheel again, re-establishing the power transfer. Automotive clutches come in various types, including single-plate, multi-plate, and dual-clutch systems, each designed to cater to specific vehicle applications and driving conditions. With the growing automotive industry and an increasing preference for manual transmissions in certain markets, the global automotive clutch market is witnessing significant growth.
Global Automotive Clutch Market Trends:
The global automotive clutch market is experiencing substantial growth, primarily propelled by the increasing adoption of manual transmissions in emerging markets. Manual transmissions are cost-effective and offer better fuel efficiency, making them a preferred choice for budget-conscious consumers. In addition to this, the bolstering expansion of logistics and transportation and the increasing use of manual transmissions in commercial vehicles, such as heavy-duty trucks and buses, due to their durability and torque handling capabilities, is contributing to the market's growth. Furthermore, significant technological advancements in clutch materials and designs resulting in improved performance and durability and the development of advanced friction materials that can withstand high torque loads and offer better engagement characteristics are presenting lucrative opportunities for market expansion. Concurrent with this, the expanding shift towards hybrid and electric vehicles (H/EVs) that incorporate clutches in their drivetrains for specific functions is contributing to the increasing demand for automotive clutches. Moreover, the introduction of favorable government regulations regarding emissions and fuel efficiency standards urging automakers to explore various powertrain options, including mild hybrid systems that require advanced clutch solutions to optimize the power transfer between the engine and the electric motor, is strengthening the market growth. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 16.9 Billion by 2028, expanding at a CAGR of 5.4% during 2023-2028.
