Automotive Gear Shifter Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Technology Type ( Shift-by-Wire, Automatic Shifter ), By Component Type ( Electronic Control Unit (ECU), CAN Module, Solenoid Actuator ), By Vehicle Type ( Passenger Cars, Commercial Vehicles ) and regional Forecast, 2024-2032

Published On : November 04, 2020 | Report ID: FBI104098 | Status : Ongoing



The automotive gear shifter is an electronically controlled transmission system that is responsible for controlling the torque & speed of the vehicle. The automotive gear shift systems uses an electronic system and a lever to engage and disengage the gears and change them according to the requirement of the driver. This system is usually available in manual and advanced types. In a manual transmission system, shifting gears can be an exhausting task which can be eliminated by the advanced transmission system. The advanced transmission system can recognize when the driver is shifting the gear, while the electrical system can operate a solenoid actuator and the clutch to operate the engagement, disengagement and shifting of gears. Another significant driving factor for advanced automotive transmission system is the increased use of x-by-wire technology, in which the electromechanical systems are used to perform functions that are usually operated by mechanical linkages. The global automotive advanced transmission system market is mainly driven by the increasing demand for semi-automatic and automatic transmission vehicles, as well as the rise in the income level and the increasing electrification in vehicles. The governments of various countries are taking various initiatives and implementing strict emission standards to promote the development of electric vehicles. The growing demand for comfort during driving is rapidly boosting the market for automotive advanced automotive gear shifter.
