The top three emerging trends driving the global hydraulic steering system market according to Technavio automotive research analysts are:
- Growing pursuit of EHPS in HCVs
- Increasing penetration of steer-by-wire technology
- Rise in electrification of mechanical components
Growing pursuit of electrohydraulic power steering (EHPS) in HCVs
The optimization of energy consumption and the electrification of automotive components are the key considerations during the development of new vehicles, especially for power steering systems. In a hydraulic power steering system, 70% of the fuel gets consumed by hydraulics, which can be avoided by the application of more advanced power steering systems such as EPS and EHPS.
“Electrohydraulic power steering system has been used in passenger cars since the 1980s and is known to provide high fuel efficiency. Most automotive manufacturers have developed similar steering systems for their vehicles, thereby boosting the market,” says Praveen Kumar, a lead analyst at Technavio for automotive services research.
Increasing penetration of steer-by-wire technology
A steer-by-wire technology helps in the elimination of a physical connection between the steering wheel and the steering system. This technology provides better handling and safety, and reduces the cost of production and allows for a wide array of designs. The steer-by-wire system also provides improved performance, reliability, and safety with reduced manufacturing and operating costs and better fuel economy. Such advantages provided by the steer-by-wire technology is driving its increasing adoption, thereby boosting the market growth.
Rise in electrification of mechanical components
“The boost in the adoption vehicles with better fuel economy is a major driving factor for the electrification of mechanical components. Taking out the ancillary system from the engine reduces the load from the engines and increases their efficiency,” says Praveen.
The electro power steering (EPS) system responds more quickly and efficiently and allows for the integration of software such as parking and lane-change assists. In EPS, steering wheel movements are converted into electronic signals, which control the electric motors. For instance, electric coolant pumps manage the internal combustion engine proactively and ensure optimal coolant is supplied to the engine.
