Automotive Differential Market by Drive Type (Front Wheel Drive (FWD), Rear Wheel Drive (RWD), All-wheel drive (AWD)/Four Wheel Drive (4WD)), Vehicle Type (Passenger Car, Commercial Vehicle, and Electric vehicle) and Type (Open, Locking, Limited Slip Differential, Electronic limited slip differential, and Torque Vectoring): Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2020–2027

Automotive differential is a part of front and/or rear axle assembly that plays an integral role in a vehicle and is designed to allow moving of wheels at different speeds. It is a part of automotive driveline, which transmits the desired torque and power to the wheels to perform driving operations. The primary function of this system is to provide proportional RPMs between two connected wheels. For instance, when a vehicle goes around the corner, the outside wheel must travel faster than the inside wheel. The differential distributes equal amount of torque to both the wheels. In addition, this system provides wheels with resistance and traction. Moreover, sale of differential assemblies is directly driven by automotive production activities across the globe. These procurements are completed through contracts and agreements between original equipment manufacturers and differential assemblies’ manufacturers.
The global automotive differential market is segmented into drive type, vehicle type, type, and region. By drive type, it is divided into front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, and all-wheel drive (AWD)/ four wheel drive (4WD). By vehicle type, it is categorized into passenger car, commercial vehicle, and electric vehicle. By type, it is classified into open, locking, limited slip differential (LSD), electronic limited slip differential (ELSD), and torque vectoring. Region-wise, it is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.
Key players, including American Axle & Manufacturing, Inc. (AAM), BorgWarner Inc., Dana Incorporated, Eaton, Hyundai Wia Corporation, JTEKT Corporation, Linamar Corporation, Melrose Industries PLC, Schaeffler Group, ZF Friedrichshafen AG, and others hold major automotive differential market share.
