Region :Global | Report ID: FBI108307 | Status : Ongoing



Valves are one of the primary components of the automatic transmission gearbox as it helps in a smooth shift of gears as per the change in engine output. A gearbox is the primary companent of the transmission that helps in transmitting power from the engine to the wheels and valves facilitates the process of transmitting power with varying loads in the engine. A valve controls the flow of hydraulic fluid through the transmission to engage a specific gear.

With increased automation and the urge to improve fuel efficiency, performance, and safety, the automotive industry is constantly innovating new technologies. Besides being highly advantageous to drivers, an automatic gearbox alleviates the need for manual shifting and improves overall driving comfort without compromising performance and efficiency.

The demand for automatic gearbox valves has been witnessing a high demand as consumers readily opt for automatic transmission vehicles to avoid the hassle of adjusting gears in heavy traffic and jam-packed roads, achieve greater vehicle fuel economy and garner comfort and convenience while riding. The demand for high-performance cars positively contributes to adopting an automatic gearbox system as it does not face the power transmission lag while gear shifting.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Automatic Gearbox Valve Market

The automatic gearbox valve market is poised to grow as the automobile industry grows. COVID-19 pushed major economies to multiple setbacks due to lockdowns and supply chain bottlenecks. China and Japan play a significant role in manufacturing passenger cars. In terms of passenger vehicle sales around the globe, FY20 was a huge disappointment due to consumer preferences shifting significantly.

New car production was negatively impacted by the closure of assembly plants and a lack of staff caused by stricter societal distancing rules. As a result of the supply chain slowdown, companies were forced to purchase sufficient raw materials to meet their production needs, and at the same time, the increase in inflation significantly increased the cost of production.
