MRFR Reveals Insights for Reviving Torque Converter Market

New York, US, Aug. 12, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- According to a comprehensive research report by Market Research Future (MRFR), “Torque Converter Market Analysis by battery Type, Component, Vehicle, and by Regions - Global Forecast To 2030” valuation is poised to reach USD 4261 Million by 2030, registering an 5.78% CAGR throughout the forecast period (2022–2030).

Torque Converter Market Overview

Torque converter automatic gearboxes are rapidly making a comeback in performance cars. The latest performance cars without a semiautomatic ’box were found not performing enough to the mark, which has been a greater pull for the manual gearbox to come back. Most renowned automakers are working hard to find compelling alternatives to torque-converters to drive a full-on sequential motorsport box without its harshness or self-destructive tendencies.

However, their efforts are not serving enough in controlling what the engine was doing, efficiency-wise. And they are rapidly returning to torque converter automatic gearboxes. For instance, the transmission of the new BMW M3 Competition isn’t a dual-clutch automatic; instead, it has reverted to an 8-speed torque-converter with automatic paddle shifters to gain efficiency.

Moreover, the emergence of the dual-clutch transmission (DCT) played a causal role in improving automated manual (AMT) and its single-clutch by shifting without interrupting the flow of torque. A perfectly calibrated DCT that can be borderline dull is highly efficient in this respect. This, as a result, is re-establishing the prominence of torque converter automatic gearboxes, helping manual shifting and skills needed to do it well.

Torque Converter Market Segments

The torque converter market is segmented into transmission types, components, vehicle types, hybrid vehicles, and regions. The transmission type segment comprises AMT (automated manual transmission), CVT (continuously variable transmission), and DCT (dual-clutch transmission). The component segment comprises clutch plates, dampers, impellers, stators, turbines, and others.

The vehicle type segment comprises passenger cars and commercial vehicles. The hybrid vehicle segment comprises hybrid electric vehicles (HEV) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV). The region segment comprises the Americas, Asia-Pacific, Middle East & Africa, Europe, and the rest of the world.
