The AWD/4WD systems are primarily used in the premium segment cars and SUVs.Improving economic conditions, increasing industrialization, and improved living standards of the consumers around the world have increased the demand for premium segment cars and SUVs.

Following this demand-led growth, key OEMs have begun to focus on the development of customer-centric SUVs, compact SUVs, or MUV models. These factors would consequently influence the market for multi-wheel drive systems, which in turn would drive the demand for the automotive differential.
With progression in time, the COVID-19 impact has severely disrupted the supply chain for entire automotive ecosystem.This has halted production facilities across the globe resulting in disruption in the exports of the automotive components.

This scenario is expected to affect automotive differential market, as the growth of the market is directly related to the production of the vehicles.The global production of vehicle pre-COVID-19 was expected to reach from ~90-95 million units in 2020 to ~110-115 million units by 2025.

According to OICA, though global vehicle production declined by 5.2% between 2018-2019, the production outlook was supposed to showcase significant growth from 2021-2022 owing to multiple steps taken by OEMs, as well as some government, to attract customers.

Electronic limited slip differential to be the fastest growing differential type of the automotive differential market.

The differentials are now getting replaced by the Electronic Limited Slip Differential (ELSD).The ELSD system provides sufficient torque to each wheel with the help of an electronic control unit.

The system is useful in case of slippage, as the extra torque is transferred to the wheels with the most traction. The system offers better handling during high-speed curves and lane changes.

Asia Oceania to be the largest growing market for Automotive Differential Market
The Asia Pacific region is estimated to dominate the automotive differential market and is projected to be the fastest growing market during the forecast period.Asia Oceania is projected to lead owing to the large vehicle production compared to other regions.

Asia Oceania contributed about 50–55% of the global vehicle production in 2019.With the increase in vehicle production, the demand for automotive differential is projected to grow at a significant rate.

Also, a growing inclination towards all-wheel and four-wheel drive integrated vehicles in Asian countries has increased the popularity of off-road vehicles and sports cars. These factors are likely to attribute to the overall market growth during the forecast period.
