Market Scope

The global torque converter market is predicted to gain an uptick in demand owing to sales of passenger and commercial vehicles. The winding roads and capacity to handle high instantaneous force is likely to drive market demand. Huge demand from driver assistance systems and need for automatic and high end vehicles can fuel market growth. The low maintenance and low frequency of refilling of transmission liquid coupled with stringent regulations on pollution levels by governments will benefit the market. In addition, government policies favoring the production of electric and hybrid vehicles will affect the demand.

The COVID-19 outbreak has negatively affected the torque converter industry owing to disruption in supply chains of raw materials and finished goods from China. The halt in production activities is expected to affect the market negatively. However, inclination towards stepless transmission and expensive nature of converters can hamper the market growth.


The global torque converter industry is segmented by type, component, and vehicle type.

By type, it is segmented into dual-clutch transmission, automatic transmission, and continuously variable transmission. The continuously variable transmission (CVT) segment is expected to gain traction in the market owing to the rise in medium vehicles and acceleration challenges in automatic transmission can fuel the segment growth.

By component, it is segmented into stator, impeller, damper, clutch plate, and turbine.

By vehicle type, it is divided into commercial vehicle and passenger vehicle. The penetration of automatic transmission in passenger vehicles is predicted to bode drive the segment growth in the global torque converter market.

Regional Analysis

The United States and Europe regions are expected to fuel the demand in the global torque converter market. The immense demand of commercial vehicles in United States can provide lots of opportunities for market players. In addition, the integration of torque converters in medium-duty and heavy-duty trucks can positively affect the market demand. The growth of the European region is also driven by the presence of major auto manufacturers, which are mainly focusing on meeting the increasing demand for passenger and commercial vehicles.
