Published Date : Nov 2020 | No. of Pages : 200 Pages | Category : Automation and Transport

The global all-wheel drive (AWD) vehicle market size is expected to reach US$ 680 billion by 2030 expanding at a CAGR of 5.1% from 2021 to 2030. Increase in global warming across the globe is prompting most vehicle manufacturers to develop efficient vehicle technologies for their vehicles, which in turn is anticipated to boost the all-wheel drive (AWD) vehicle market across the globe.

Technological progression and development of several advanced combustion modes, such as homogeneous charge compression ignition (HCCI), is anticipated to boost the automotive sector, owing to a rise in the demand for high efficiency and low carbon emission. Moreover, advancements in terms of electric vehicle technology are expected to boost the production of electric vehicles (EVs) across the globe, owing to the high demand for vehicles during the forecast period. This, in turn, is projected to propel the all-wheel drive vehicle market, globally.

Major Challenges

  • Disruptions in supply chain catering to the automobile industry, owing to shutdown of production and manufacturing facilities and raw material shortage caused by the coronavirus pandemic across the world, is estimated to contract the market in 2020. However, the market is anticipated to recover through economic losses by increasing production volume of vehicle components as well as vehicle production from 2021.
  • The cost of all-wheel drive (AWD) vehicles is comparatively higher than that of two-wheel drive (2WD), i.e. forward wheel drive (FWD) and rear wheel drive (RWD) vehicles. This, in turn, is anticipated to hider the all-wheel drive (AWD) market during the forecast period. However, global restrictions on vehicle fuel consumption and emissions, enacted by various regulatory authorities, are prompting automakers to improve engine-efficiency, which is likely to increase awareness about the AWD technology and subsequently, boost the market during the forecast period.

Market Growth to Dip amid COVID-19 Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic is projected to have a strong impact on the global automotive sector. As the novel coronavirus continues to spread, governments across the world are compelled to enforce stringent lockdowns and restrictions on trade and transportation as a measure to contain the virus. The lockdown of industries across China in the first quarter of 2020 has had a strong impact on the global automotive sector due to which, the all-wheel drive (AWD) vehicle market is expected to have a slower growth rate than initial projections. However, as industries across China have opened up, production and other operations have resumed due to which, the market is expected to show minor signs of recovery.

While the automotive sector is expected to stroll through an uncertain period in 2020, the global all-wheel drive (AWD) vehicle market is estimated to grow at a sluggish pace. Disruptions across the supply chain and shortage of automotive components and materials are some of the other factors that are likely to hinder the production of all-wheel drive vehicles amid the ongoing pandemic.

Expansion of All-Wheel Drive (AWD) Vehicle Market

The surge in demand for high performance vehicles across the globe is projected to boost the all-wheel drive (AWD) vehicle market during the forecast period. China witnessed a rise in the production of both IC-engine and electric propulsion enabled vehicles. North America recorded high penetration of utility vehicles in 2018, which continued in 2019, leading the region to account for a significant share of the global all-wheel drive market in 2020.

Based on vehicle type, the global all-wheel drive (AWD) vehicle market has been segmented into passenger vehicle and commercial vehicle. Passenger vehicle is likely to be highly lucrative segment during the forecast period. This is primarily due to the rise in the production of electric passenger vehicles across the globe. Rising adoption of electric vehicles in major developing countries including the U.S., China, Germany, and Japan is expected to propel the all-wheel drive (AWD) vehicle market across the globe.

In terms of technology, the all-wheel drive system (AWD) segment dominated the market. Increase in demand for high performance, fuel-efficient vehicles due to enactment of emission regulation is fueling the demand for AWD vehicles.

Based on propulsion, the IC-engine segment dominated the market, as the production of IC-engine vehicles is higher as compared to that of electric vehicles. However, a rise in preference toward electric vehicles is anticipated to increase the market share held by the electric propulsion segment during the forecast period.
