CAGR of 5.92% over the forecast period of 2018-2024.
A torque converter is a device
that acts as a link between the transmission and the engine that allows a
vehicle engine to spin separately from the transmission. It is a type of fluid
coupling which transfers rotating power from a prime mover, like an internal
combustion engine, to a rotating driven load. In a vehicle with an automatic
transmission, the torque converter connects the power source to the load. It is
usually located between the engine's flexplate and the transmission. The key
characteristic of a torque converter is its ability to multiply torque when the
output rotational speed is so low that it allows the fluid coming off the
curved vanes of the turbine to be deflected off the stator while it is locked against
its one-way clutch, thus providing the equivalent of a reduction gear.
Rising demand for automatic
transmission systems are one of the primary factors that fuel the growth of the
automotive torque converter market over the upcoming years. Additionally, the
growth of the automatic transmission market is expected to be driven by the
rising demand for driver assistance systems, along with the increased use of
electronics in the vehicle further augment the demand for torque converters.
However, torque converter transmission consumes more fuels compared to Dual
Clutch and CVTs that restrain the growth of torque converter market. Moreover,
the increase in the demand for comfort and safety is driving the technological a shift from the manual transmission to the automatic transmission is providing
huge growth opportunities for the key players in the torque converter market.
By geography, Europe dominated
the torque converter market followed by the Asia Pacific. Moreover, the growth
of the torque converter market in America is projected to positively affect the
market by the increased adoption of automatic transmissions in heavy-duty and
medium trucks. Torque converter market is expected to have significant
opportunities in Asia Pacific regions of fastest-growing nations like India,
Japan, and China for its OEM segment to experience the highest growth that
demands automatic transmission.
