The electric power steering (EPS) market in North America is expected to generate revenue of close to $xxbillion by 2021 with a CAGR of xx%.

Improved functionality in terms of add-on functions and higher rack-load capacity will see more REPS crossing the xxKN front axle load limit.
SUV/pickup and MPV/vans segment offers maximum revenue potential and growth opportunities at the same time. The highly saturated C/D segment is expected to grow with a CAGR of xx%, despite a majority of vehicles in this segment already being EPS enabled.

Market consolidation is expected, especially considering the takeover of TRW by ZF and Bosch being established as a new Tier I. A few other takeovers might soon be possible to supplement the need in this space.
Ultra low-cost EPS is expected to dominate the future with steer by wire (SBW) poised as the most probable future solution.
Highly automated driving with hands-off mode will be legal in many parts of North America. There is a high possibility of not having a steering wheel, similar to the Google Car.
