Collision Avoidance Technologies Hold the Highest Revenue Potential
This study provides strategic insights on key technologies in the passenger car industry in North America with a focus on market penetration of each key application in powertrain, electric vehicles, transmissions, chassis, safety, infotainment and telematics. This research indicates the revenue potential of each of the key technologies in 2020, based on the current market scenario and growth drivers. A large number of technologies are driven—directly or indirectly—by mandates and are expected to be available on at least two of every three passenger vehicles sold in North America. The study demarcates low-revenue-potential technologies from medium- and high-revenue-potential technologies.
The aim of this study is to research, analyze, and forecast emerging vehicle technologies in North America and the impact on their growth and performance in the current decade.
- Provide a strategic overview of the emerging technologies in the North American market. Includes key technology trends and market drivers and restraints for Diesel engines and turbocharger technologies.
- Provide market size and forecasts of the LCV and LCV Diesel engine market by type of model, engine type, fuel type, OEM, and breakdown by region - 2008 to 2019.
- Provide forecasts of the current and future turbochargers market globally by type (e.g., FGT versus VGT vs. multi-stage) - 2008 to 2019.
- Competitor analysis: Analyze competitive factors, competitor market shares, and product portfolio analysis and capabilities.
- Develop an actionable set of recommendations for CTT to enter and grow the market.

Executive Summary - Key Findings
Powertrain Mix To Remain Largely Unaltered, Though Alternate Fuels Provide A Viable Option
- Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) regulations on fuel economy and National Highway Safety Association’s (NHTSA) efforts towards reducing fatalities drive key technologies.
- North America is expected to be a gasoline-dominated market until 2020, though alternative fuels are expected to grow in popularity.
- While certain Advanced Driver Assisted Systems (ADAS) technologies, which have thus far been an optional fitment, are expected to be driven by legislation, standardized infotainment architecture is expected to be driven by Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) initiatives.
- OEMs defer the introduction of new technologies as product safety laws are strongly enforced in North America, making the OEMs liable for any malfunctioning of equipment.
- Key OEMs are expected to launch diesel models to provide consumers with more fuel efficient options.
TIER I LEVEL
- As technologies such as electric power steering gain popularity, hydraulic pump manufacturers and related value chains are expected to adopt to the electrification trend in order to stay buoyant in the industry.
- Increased use of electrical and electronic components is expected to bridge the development of systems that can be used on conventional vehicles, Electric Vehicles (EV), and hybrids.
