In 2016, the automotive steering system industry at home and abroad was characterized by:

1. Steady growth in demand
Global automotive steering system market benefits enormously from a steady growth in auto sales with the demand increasing by 4.7% year on year to 93.86 million sets in 2016. China’s demand reached 28.12 million sets in 2016, including 24.42 million sets of steering system for passenger cars, and is expected to total 38.05 million sets in 2021.

2. High market concentration and fierce competition
Global automotive steering system market is primarily occupied by multinational companies including JTEKT, BOSCH, TRW, NSK, Mando, and Nexteer. In 2016, JTEKT and BOSCH together seized more than one-third (35.4%) share of the whole market.

Meanwhile, foreign brand giants, by virtue of technical advantages of products and their capital relations with foreign brand carmakers, dominate the Chinese automotive steering system market. Local Chinese enterprises represented by CAAS and Zhejiang Shibao claim a relatively small market share. They are enhancing competitive strength by making more efforts to develop new products.

3. EPS: a mainstream one promoted by more popular NEVs
EPS has become a mainstream automotive steering system, capturing 54.7% of global demand for steering system in 2016. The assembly rate of EPS in China has also reached 53%.

According to the Technology Roadmap for Energy Saving and New Energy Vehicles issued by the Society of Automotive Engineers of China, energy-efficient vehicles are expected to hold a 50% market share by 2030. Driven by rapid growth of new energy vehicles, the sales and penetration of EPS as a standard configuration, hopefully, increase substantially.
