LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent global automotive torque converter market report from 2017-2021. This market research report also lists three other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

Competitive vendor landscape

The global automotive torque converter market is moderately concentrated with the presence of several vendors. The market is characterized by the presence of well-diversified international, regional, and local players. The local and regional vendors in the market provide cost-effective torque converters with limited features and functionalities. However, since the international players are increasing their presence in many regions, they occupy major shares of the global automotive torque converter market.

According to Ganesh Subramanian, a lead analyst at Technavio for automotive components research, “The major vendors in the market are currently expanding their customer base and are increasing their investments in R&D. The competition in the market should intensify with technological advances and government regulations. OEMs are expected to get into long-term collaborations with the vendors as the quality and design of the materials used, which are unique to each vendor, are crucial factors in managing the cost.”
