These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.
An automotive slipper clutch, also known as a torque limiter, allows the clutch to disengage while decelerating the speed of vehicles partially. It is integrated with a freewheel mechanism and an anti-lock braking system (ABS), which aids in reducing overall momentum, preventing sudden forces from damaging the transmission, minimizing engine braking and increasing transmission longevity. Additionally, it helps prevent rear-wheel lock-up, absorbs shock and vibration, and improves the performance of vehicles. As a result, the automotive slipper clutch is gaining immense traction across the globe to reduce the chances of accidents or collisions.
The growing global population, rapid urbanization, and inflating disposable income levels of individuals are leading to a significant rise in the sales of premium and performance-oriented motorcycles. In addition, the rising popularity of bike racing for recreational purposes is contributing to the market growth. In line with this, the increasing production of racing prototype bikes is catalyzing the demand for automotive slipper clutch to gain faster lap times, which, in turn, is positively influencing the market. Additionally, the automotive slipper clutch aids in reducing the work of the suspension, controlling the rear wheel under hard braking and downshifting, and assists in minimizing the experience of bumpy rides. Apart from this, the growing focus of leading manufacturers on improving engine performance is positively influencing the market. Furthermore, the growing trend of the dual-clutch and high displacement motorcycles and the introduction of advanced anti-reverse torque (A-RT) slipper clutch technology are creating a positive outlook for the market. Moreover, increasing investments by leading industry players in extensive research and development (R&D) activities to launch more advanced product variants are anticipated to drive the market.
