In the normal drive mode, the vehicle runs in 2-wheel drive, with its rear wheels receiving power and pushing the front wheels. In all wheel drive, all wheels receive power where in the front and rear wheels rotate at the same speed, which improves traction and stability. Improved safety, stability, fuel efficiency and drive control are some of the factors which will accelerate the automotive all wheel drive market growth. for off-road driving like sand, snow or climbing slippery hills where wheel slips may occur, the all wheel drive helps to evenly distribute the power to front and rear axles thus controlling power in all wheels and keeping a straight traction. Rise in demand for powerful commercial heavy duty vehicles such as trucks and lorries as well as for SUVs and vehicles with high torque driving experience will accelerate all wheel drive market growth. Earlier, these systems were available only in high-end cars but the introduction in small passenger cars and hybrid electric vehicles has led to an increase in global demand. Increase in passenger safety concerns and stringent government motor vehicle safety regulations will act as an opportunity for this industry in the forecast period.
The global automotive all wheel drive market can be segmented based on technology, vehicle, electric vehicle, and region. In terms of technology, the automotive all wheel drive market can be classified into automatic all wheel drive, and manual all wheel drive.
