“Crossovers are highly fuel efficient compared to SUVs as they are built from car frames and are considerably lightweight. Most American customers prefer space and higher riding profile. Crossovers usually weigh less than SUVs as SUVs are built from truck frames, leading to high curb weight for the vehicle.”
The research study covers the present scenario and growth prospects of the global automotive differential market for 2016-2020. The report presents the vendor landscape and a corresponding detailed analysis of the major vendors operating in the market.
Increasing demand for SUVs and crossovers worldwide and the resurgent US auto industry, where the sales of SUVs, crossovers, and passenger cars have increased on a year-on-year basis, drive the global market for automotive differentials. The low penetration of cars in the rapid growing markets of emerging countries such as China, India, Brazil, and Indonesia also contribute to the growth of the global market for automotive differentials.

Technavio automotive analysts highlight the following three factors that are contributing to the growth of the global automotive differential market:
- Increasing demand for SUVs and crossovers
- Resurgent US auto industry
- Low penetration of cars in emerging countries
Increasing demand for SUVs and crossovers
The sales of SUVs and crossovers increased by about 10% in the total US passenger car market in 2015. Increasing preference for comfortable rides over long distances, three-row seats, and extra boot space in crossovers and SUVs are the main drivers for their growth in the US. Although both SUVs and crossovers look similar, they are distinct in fuel efficiency and usability.
Praveen Kumar, a lead powertrain research analyst at Technavio, says, “Crossovers are highly fuel efficient compared to SUVs as they are built from car frames and are considerably lightweight. Most American customers prefer space and higher riding profile. Crossovers usually weigh less than SUVs as SUVs are built from truck frames, leading to high curb weight for the vehicle.”
Resurgent US auto industry
In 2005, oil prices increased and reached its peak by 2008. American car manufacturers were highly dependent on gasoline driven light trucks for profit, which lead to the fall in sales of vehicles. The automotive industry crisis occurred in 2008-2010 with the big three automakers of the US: Ford, General Motors, and Chrysler in a weak financial position and the financial crisis of the companies compelling automakers to ask for financial aid from the US federal government.
“The auto leasing interest rates in the US have decreased over the years, leading to the increase in the sales of cars. There has been a growing demand for new vehicle loans due to the decline in auto loan interest rate, contributing to the increase in sales of cars in the US,” adds Praveen.
Low penetration of cars in emerging countries
China had the highest share of approximately 47% for passenger cars in 2015 among the emerging countries. China had a market size of 21.14 million units in the passenger cars segment in 2015, which is expected to increase to 29.73 million units by 2020. China is the world’s largest automotive market and the volume of units of passenger cars, and high growth rate is expected to drive the market as there is more scope for growth in China in terms of passenger cars.
In terms of China’s geography, the tier 3 and tier 4 Chinese cities contributed to a 40% increase in the sales of new cars in 2011 from 2002. It is estimated that around 60% of the new car sales will come from the smaller tier 3 and tier 4 cities.
