US Demand for Power Transmission Components to Reach $78.5 Billion in 2021


Cleveland, OH, September 15, 2017 — US demand for power transmission components is forecast to reach $78.5 billion in 2021, according to Power Transmission Components: United States, a report recently released by Freedonia Focus Reports. Suppliers will benefit from increases in domestic output of durable products such as machinery and motor vehicles (MVs) that incorporate power transmission components.

MV transmissions and powertrain parts will remain the largest product segment over the forecast period. Gains will be driven by growth in domestic MV production, which will boost MV manufacturers’ demand for transmissions and powertrain parts. In addition, increases in the number of MVs in use and rising average vehicle age will spur demand for transmissions and powertrain parts employed in aftermarket applications.

These and other key insights are featured in Power Transmission Components: United States.
