2014-04-04 06:19:01 - Analysis of the North American All-wheel Drive Systems Marke - a new market research report on companiesandmarkets.com
Apart from the Detroit 3 OEMs, Toyota and Honda hold the major market share for AWD systems in North America. Volkswagen and Toyota are expected to be leaders in the electric all-wheel drive (eAWD) systems market. Magna and JTEKT hold the largest market share; this is expected to continue up to 2020. OEM-supplier relationships are expected to play a vital role for driveline system volumes up to 2020. Stringent emission-related regulations may push eAWD technology toward quicker adaptation due its potential to improve fuel economy. Rightsizing the driveline and disconnect driveline systems are expected to be the future of conventional AWD technology. The on-demand and combination AWD segment is expected to be the most dominant. Fuel efficiency and hybridization benefits
are key drivers for eAWD systems. To be offered by volume and premium OEMs, the cost depends on functionality levels.
The on-demand and combination AWD market is in a growth phase and is expected to mature by 2018. On-demand and combination AWD is currently the dominant type.
All major suppliers see the potential and the benefits of rightsizing, and are actively supporting OEMs.Much closer collaboration between suppliers and OEMs will optimize the size of the driveline.
Interest persists in developing eAWD solution, which gives the advantage of an AWD with easier integration and hybridization potential.With further penetration of electric vehicles (EVs) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs), eAWD is also expected to find more widespread implementations in North America.
The on-demand and combination AWD system is the dominant AWD technology in the market today. Cost of the disconnect system is the major factor holding back most OEMs. OEMs are currently focused on parasitic loss reduction and cost reduction. The on-demand and combination AWD systems are likely continue to be the dominant AWD technology.
Electric AWD technology is expected to be in the growth stage as OEMs try to meet stringent emission norms.
