Automotive transmission ensures smooth shifting of gears in a vehicle for transferring torque generated by the engine to drive the vehicle. Mainly there are two main type of transmission manual transmission and automatic transmission. Manual transmission is a system in a vehicle that requires manual interference to shift the gear depending upon the situation. Automatic transmission is a system in a vehicle that changes gears at different speeds without a control driver. It provides enhanced driving experience and better fuel efficiency than manual transmission.

Demand for electrification of vehicle systems is increasing due to new regulations by governments for emission control and reduced fuel consumption. Government regulatory agencies of developed countries are developing and implementing rigid regulatory frameworks regarding emission norms. Owing to all these factors, the global market for automotive transmission is likely to register a promising pace of expansion in the next few years. The market is expected to exhibit a 6.6% CAGR from 2017 to 2025, rising from a valuation of US$30.02 bn in 2016 to US$53.20 bn by 2025.
