Automotive Steering System Market 2
Automotive Steering System Market 2

Automotive Steering System Market was valued at around US$ 24.8 billion in 2019. The market witnessed a decline in the FY2020-2021 owing to decreased vehicle production and sales due to Covid-19 pandemic. Growing demand for carbon emission reduction have compelled the automotive sector to accelerate the electrification of several typically mechanical systems. Everything from supercharging to power steering in the automotive sector has been electrified to minimize emissions, this has further improved safety, operational simplicity, and a better driving experience. Electronic power steering (EPS) systems have various advantages, compared to their hydraulic equivalents, including weight reduction, low maintenance, and fuel consumption, as well as improved variable steering response at different vehicle speeds. Looking at the flexibility of EPS, automotive manufacturers around the world are working on integrating EPS with other smart systems already in use to enhance vehicle safety and driving experience. For Example, in 2018, Maserati launched models named Ghibli, Levante, and Quattroporte, with electronic power steering, allowing new driver assistance systems. Similarly, Nexteer Automotive Corporation also integrated ADAS systems with the electronic power steering systems which ensures safety to driver.
