Concise Analysis on the International Automotive Transmission Market - Forecast to 2018

DUBLIN, February 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Concise Analysis on the International Automotive Transmission Market - Forecast to 2018" report to their offering.

     (Logo: )

The global dual clutch transmission (DCT) and continuously variable transmission (CVT) market are expected to reach 7.15 million and 11.5 million units respectively by 2018. Despite the tough competition from other transmission systems such as automatic and manual, DCT and CVT represent promising growth opportunities in the near future. The automotive industry is the most dynamic in terms of technological advancements, new product launches, and fluctuating regional demands for various types of vehicles across the globe.

Dual clutch transmission system market has been on high growth trajectory for the past few years and is expected to continue with the same trend for the coming years. On the other hand, continuously variable transmission system is relatively high volume market experiencing relatively slow growth than the DCT market. DCTs are highly popular in the European market followed by Asia-Pacific and Europe; whereas CVTs are extremely popular in the Asia-Pacific region followed by North America and Europe.

The stringent environmental regulations, need for improved fuel economy, and enhanced driving experience calls for strong research and development efforts from auto makers which indeed has led to enormous changes and developments in the automotive transmission system industry. DCT is relatively new technology as compared to CVT.

The automobile companies such as Volkswagen, Honda, Daimler, Hyundai, and others manufacture transmission systems in-house for their vehicles while independent suppliers such as Getrag, Jatco, and ZF supply their systems to OEMs as well. This makes supply chain somewhat complex to some extent as the transmission system component manufacturers, design companies, and auto manufacturers are all involved in co-development of transmission systems through joint ventures, collaborations, and partnerships to suit particular requirements. Investments by major automakers in China and collaboration of independent transmission system suppliers with the Asian automakers point towards healthy growth in the Asia-Pacific region.

There are considerable developments and technological advancements that occur mainly in the European and Asian regions. Also, the growing automotive production bases in Asia-Pacific are supported by firm economic conditions. These evolvements indicate the likely entry of new players, including transmission system component manufacturers and the backward integration of automobile manufacturers. As of 2012, the market has been identified with leading companies such as Volkswagen and Getrag for DCT and Honda and Jatco for CVT. Looking at industry participants' expansion plans and changing buyer preferences, these companies are expected to face stiff competition in the near future from the companies such as Hyundai, Nissan, ZF, Fiat Powertrain, Ricardo, and other auto manufacturers.

This week, the team assembled in NYC for @Cloud Expo 2015 and @ThingsExpo 2015. For the past four years, this has been a must-attend event for MetraTech. We were happy to once again join industry visionaries, colleagues, customers and even competitors to share and explore the ways in which the Internet of Things (IoT) will impact our industry. Over the course of the show, we discussed the types of challenges we will collectively need to solve to capitalize on the opportunity IoT presents.
As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
WebRTC converts the entire network into a ubiquitous communications cloud thereby connecting anytime, anywhere through any point. In his session at WebRTC Summit,, Mark Castleman, EIR at Bell Labs and Head of Future X Labs, will discuss how the transformational nature of communications is achieved through the democratizing force of WebRTC. WebRTC is doing for voice what HTML did for web content.
Today’s connected world is moving from devices towards things, what this means is that by using increasingly low cost sensors embedded in devices we can create many new use cases. These span across use cases in cities, vehicles, home, offices, factories, retail environments, worksites, health, logistics, and health. These use cases rely on ubiquitous connectivity and generate massive amounts of data at scale. These technologies enable new business opportunities, ways to optimize and automate, al...
Containers are all the rage among developers and web companies, but they also represent two very substantial benefits to larger organizations. First, they have the potential to dramatically accelerate the application lifecycle from software builds and testing to deployment and upgrades. Second they represent the first truly hybrid-approach to consuming infrastructure, allowing organizations to run the same workloads on any cloud, virtual machine or physical server. Together, they represent a ver...
As operational failure becomes more acceptable to discuss within the software industry, the necessity for holding constructive, actionable postmortems increases. But most of what we know about postmortems from "pop culture" isn't actually relevant for the software systems we work on and within. In his session at DevOps Summit, J. Paul Reed will look at postmortem pitfalls, techniques, and tools you'll be able to take back to your own environment so they will be able to lay the foundations for h...
