Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

The success of the Automobile Transmission Manufacturing industry is closely linked to the performance of motor vehicle manufacturers. Over the five years to 2016, domestic vehicle production in the United States has accelerated dramatically. Rising discretionary income coupled with greater financing opportunities have driven consumers to purchase new vehicles. In turn, this has shifted demand for transmissions into high gear. In the five years to 2021, industry revenue is anticipated to rise at a slower rate.

In addition, electric vehicles may become a threat to traditional transmission manufacturers.
