Automotive Steering System Market by Technology (HPS, EHPS, EPS) – Global Forecast to 2025

Automotive Steering System Market

The global Automotive Steering System Market is projected to reach USD 36.9 billion by 2025 from USD 29.3 billion in 2020, at a CAGR of 4.7%. However, the halt in vehicle production across the region has impacted the automotive steering system market. Despite this, owing to an increased installation of electric power steering (EPS) in passenger cars and light commercial vehicles and increasing demand for comfort features in vehicles, the market is expected to recover during the forecast period. The automotive steering system market is estimated to observe a decline post-COVID-19 due to the impact on vehicle production. The growth of this market is primarily driven by the stringent emission norm and increasing demand for comfort features provided by EPS system in passenger car and light commercial vehicle.

Stringent emission norms in countries like China and India are pushing OEMs to opt for EPS over EHPS and HPS systems owing to the advantages offered by EPS, such as fuel efficiency and low emission. This has increased the installation of electronically assisted power steering systems, especially in Japan, China, and India. Features such as lane-keep assist, automated parking, lane changes, and the ability to guide vehicles around obstacles all make EPS an ideal choice.
