Global Automotive Pinion Gear Market: Snapshot

Automotive pinion gears are the driving gears in the drive train and are used for the transmission of the motion in the automobiles. The major parts in which the pinion gears are used are steering system, transmission system, and differential of the vehicle. The primary function of a pinion gear is to transfer the motion to the bigger gear in the assembly. Automotive pinion gears are generally made up of alloys of Steel, Aluminum, Magnesium, Manganese, Zinc, Chromium, Nickel and Cobalt.

Increasing production of vehicles with automatic transmission system, and four wheel drives is boosting the pinion gears market due to its application in these systems in higher quantity. The vehicles used for the off road rides and vehicles used by the armed forces are mostly four wheel drive which uses more number of differential than the two wheel drive vehicles which utilizes bevel pinion gears, hence is responsible for the growth of the pinion gears market. The increasing demand for the vehicles with automatic transmission system due to its better fuel economy and ease in driving even in heavy traffic conditions is contributing to enhance the automotive pinion gear market. Mentioned factors are likely to boost the automotive pinion gear market during the forecast period.
