Key vendors to focus on emerging markets in the APAC region during the forecast period.

Technavio, a company that develops over 2000 pieces of research every year and covers more than 500 technologies across 80 countries, has announced the top five vendors for the global bus transmission system (BTS) market in their latest research report. This report also lists eight other prominent vendors who are expected to contribute to this market’s growth between 2017-2021.

Competitive vendor landscape

The global bus transmission system market is highly competitive in nature. The market consists of numerous local and regional manufacturers as well as a few international players. APAC had the highest market share in 2016 owing to the presence of numerous strong regional transmission manufacturers like AISIN, Punch Powertrain, JATCO, and IAV. However, North America is expected to be one of the fastest-growing markets owing to the growing popularity of hybrid vehicles with the increasing adoption of automated gearboxes in mid-segment vehicles.

According to Siddharth Jaiswal, a lead analyst at Technavio for research on powertrain, “The market has high growth potential in emerging countries in APAC, especially India. This coupled with the high demand for mild hybrid vehicles in Europe is anticipated to attract new entrants to the market, which will further intensify the competition.”
