   Technologies
 

The following technology is covered in this research:

  • Powertrain Systems: A vehicle’s powertrain consists of all the components that generate power and deliver it to the road surface. This includes the engine, transmission, driveshafts and the final drive (drive wheels, caterpillar track, propeller, etc). Sometimes "powertrain" is used to refer to simply the engine and transmission, including the other components only if they are integral to the transmission.
   Market Overview
 

Upgradation among Fleet Operators Drives Replacement of Powertrain Systems and Components

With improvements in the quality and durability of trucks, truck transport has emerged as a more efficient and effective alternative to rail transport. The increase in the trucking industry’s share of freight transportation over the past few years has generated more demand for Class 6-8 trucks, and has also prompted fleet operators to upgrade their aging trucks. Newer powertrains are operationally more efficient, and therefore customers prefer updated trucks for freight transportation. Moreover, drivers are more comfortable driving trucks with smooth and efficient powertrains, and upgradation to newer powertrain systems helps fleet operators address the critical issue of driver retention. These factors have been driving demand for maintenance replacement powertrain systems and components of Class 6-8 trucks, and this trend is expected to continue over the forecast period.

However, technological advances in powertrain systems and components manufactured and remanufactured for Class 6-8 trucks have greatly reduced their replacement rates. Present day powertains are more durable and reliable, with longer lifespan and extended cycle times, thereby hindering aftermarket unit shipments. "In addition to this, increasing truck prices will cause fleets to delay replacement purchases until a truck’s performance declines considerably," explains the analyst of this research service. "The expected increase in the market share on imported trucks post 2007 is also likely to challenge the aftermarket as their durability is expected to be better than domestic trucks due to stricter adherence to European regulations."

Pre-Buying of Trucks due to 2007 EPA Regulations will benefit the Aftermarket in the Medium-Long Term

While being mature, stable, and highly competitive, the North American powertrain systems and components aftermarket is also cyclical in nature. Being so, it is likely to be directly influenced by the increase in pre-buying of trucks as a result of 2007 environmental protection agency (EPA) regulations. Pre-buying is largely a result of the expected rise in prices of trucks sold in 2007 and beyond, and will result in an increase in average age of trucks in the medium and long term. This will, in turn, instigate replacement of powertrain systems and components, resulting in increased replacement opportunities. Besides EPA regulations, circumstantial factors such as increasing costs of remanufacturing, increasing fuel prices, shortage of skilled drivers, U.S. Department of Transportation regulations, increasing raw materials prices, and increasing penetration of low-cost imported products are also likely to influence the Class 6-8 truck powertrain systems and components aftermarket.

Among the product segments, remanufactured engines and components generated the largest revenues, and the steady growth of this segment is expected to drive the growth of the total aftermarket. While the revenue share of the remanufactured transmissions and components segment will remain fairly steady through 2007, the clutch aftermarket is expected to decline over the forecast period. "Overall, the total powertrain systems and components aftermarket is mature but competitive in terms of quality, price, and customer service," says the analyst. "Growth is expected to be stronger from 2007 to 2009, due to higher replacement opportunities resulting from older on-road trucks as a result of pre-buying of trucks in 2006 due to the tighter 2007 emissions regulations."
