Global automotive powertrain testing market is anticipated to witness an exponential growth in the forecast period. An automotive powertrain comprises all the key constituents that produce power and transmits it to surface or to the road. The components comprising powertrain are the transmission, engine, differentials, drive shafts, and the driving wheels.
The factors that propel the growth of the market include cold and hot engine tests conducted to investigate complete engine performance, increasing R&D activities, technological advancement, increasing consumer base, and government’s implementation for upgrading newer emission norms.
On the other hand, there are factors that may hamper the growth of the market including high cost of powertrain testing machines, high set up cost of testing services. Automotive powertrain testing market is anticipated to expand at a significant CAGR in the upcoming period as the scope, product types, and its applications are increasing across the globe.
The market has an emerging trend; i.e. is automatic transmission vehicle to propel the market for transmission testing. Automatic transmission vehicles, particularly passenger cars, are gaining acceptance worldwide. Majority of clients opt for automatic transmission systems in luxury and premium vehicle sectors. Such systems are also gaining ground in smaller car segments.
Automotive powertrain testing market could be explored by vehicle type, drive type, type, application and geography. Market could be explored by vehicle type as Heavy Commercial Vehicles, Passenger Cars, and Light Commercial Vehicles. Based on drive type, market could span Rear-Wheel Drive (Rwd) Powertrain, Front-Wheel Drive Powertrain, and All-Wheel Drive (Awd) Powertrain. The market could be explored based on type as Gasoline and Diesel.
