Powertrain Market to 2030: Trends and Risks Report 2018 -


The "Powertrain
to 2030: Trends and Risks"
report has been added to's

Technical trends and developments in the five major powertrain
areas. Analysis, discussion of recent events and developments and
assessment of their likely impact.

Attention has recently been focused on self-driving vehicles and full
electrification as major disruptors for the auto sector in the next

But for the next several years the industry is likely to be dominated by
radical changes occurring WITHIN the internal combustion (IC)-engined
automotive model, as new engine management and optimization technologies
and partial electrification address changes demanded by regulators and
markets, such as achieving carbon emission reductions and fuel economy
gains despite the sidelining of diesels.

Powertrain to 2030: Trends and Risks examines the impact of these
developments on the five major elements of the future powertrain

  • IC engines
  • Transmissions
  • Control Systems
  • Batteries
  • Electric Motors

The report looks at technical trends and developments in each of these
areas, and projects how those they might develop through to 2025 and

The report takes a unique approach to assessing the central track of the
industry's technological roadmap - and then discusses the threats and
challenges to that projection as way of analyzing the risks and
opportunities that will dominate the next decade.

In other words it establishes the consensus view, and then challenges it
by identifying key uncertainties and potential disruptors.

Each chapter summarizes current developments for each of the technology
areas, and then pulls them together into plausible, alternate scenarios
to the central outlook to help planners bookend the best and worst cases.
