Global Automotive Slipper Clutch Market to Reach US$ 1,100.2 Million by 2027, Supported by Inflating Sales of Two Wheelers

Published on Nov 17, 2022

IMARC Group’s latest report, titled “Automotive Slipper Clutch Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027,” finds that the global automotive slipper clutch market size reached US$ 780.8 Million in 2021. An automotive slipper clutch, or a torque limiter, isa specialized clutch integrated with a freewheel mechanism and anti-lock braking system (ABS). It is designed to partially disengage or slip while decelerating the vehicle until the engine and wheel speeds are compatible. It assists in preventing sudden forces from damaging the transmission, reducing overall momentum, minimizing the effects of engine braking, and improving transmission longevity. It also helps prevents the rear wheel from locking up in case of engine seizures, thereby eliminating the chances of accidents or collisions. In recent years, automotive slipper clutch has gained immense traction as it absorbs shock and vibration, improves driver safety, minimizes the experience of bumpy rides, and enhances the performance of vehicles.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.      

Global Automotive Slipper Clutch Market Trends:

The inflating sales of two-wheelers due to the expanding global population, rapid urbanization, and rising purchasing power of individuals represents the primary factor driving the market growth. Moreover, the automotive slipper clutch helps reduce the work of the suspension, control the rear wheel while hard braking and downshifting, and lower the risk of wear and tear of different components in the drivetrain or gearbox. As a result, the increasing consumer preferences for premium and performance-oriented motorcycles are positively influencing product demand. This is further supported by the growing interest of individuals in bike racing for recreational purposes. Besides this, the surging production of racing prototype bikes has accelerated the adoption of the automotive slipper clutch to gain faster lap times. Additionally, the leading manufacturers are focusing on improving engine performance and heavily investing in research and development (R&D) activities to launch innovative product variants. In line with this, the advent of advanced anti-reverse torque (A-RT) slipper clutch technology has propelled market growth. Furthermore, the emerging automotive industry, escalating demand for high displacement motorcycles, and ongoing technological advancements are some of the other factors providing a positive thrust to the market growth. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 1,100.2 Million by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 6% during 2022-2027.
