How is Autonomous Driving Shaping Demand for Automotive Steering Systems?

Prominent automotive manufacturers are looking to leverage autonomous driving systems to provide a seamless experience to automobile users. Following the CES 2018, General Motors presumptuously declared that the company would eliminate the automotive steering system from its autonomous vehicle designs by 2019.

With the launch of the Level 5 Chevy Bolt, GM is all set to venture into autonomous vehicles that would function without an automotive steering system and pedals. The company claims that this will be the first-ever production car sans driver control.

Similarly, Ford Motors has already patented a completely detachable automotive steering system and pedals, which has been planned to be available as a customer-requested automotive component option.

Although GM and Ford plan the aforementioned features for highly automated level 4 and 5 vehicles, it is imperative to address several structural, functional, and system related challenges during realistic on-road testing, before the mass production roll-out. This is believed to be highly influential in shaping the future of automotive steering system market.

OEMs Ought to Focus on Cybersecurity of Automotive EPS Systems?

With the dramatic evolution of the connected, autonomous, and semi-autonomous vehicle ecosystem, leading automakers ought to prioritize the safety and security concerns associated with automotive steering systems – especially electric power steering systems (EPS).

Industry experts predict that the next few years will observe soaring demand for EPS in all classes of vehicles, including state-of-the-art technology-based vehicles such as autonomous and connected cars.

Innovations centred on cybersecurity of EPS are likely to open new doors of opportunities for OEMs active in the automotive steering system market in the forecast period.

An Adaptive Approach to Modern-day Research Needs

Electric Powered Automotive Steering Systems Taking over Hydraulics?

The quest for reduced complexity and costs is prompting OEMs to switch from hydraulic automotive steering systems to electric automotive steering systems. Manufacturers are increasingly inclined towards achieving higher drivetrain efficiency, preferring electric automotive steering systems over hydraulic ones.

Although hydraulics have been considered ideal for amplified steering efforts for parking and manoeuvring vehicles through heavy traffic, they tend to undermine both engine power and fuel economy.

Electric automotive steering systems thus help achieve high fuel efficiency, and reduced vehicle weight and costs - offering assistance at lower as well as higher vehicle speeds and in all driving modes, including sports. Furthermore, electric powered automotive steering system can potentially work in tandem with automotive radar, LIDAR in futuristic cars.

Why are Electrically Powered Steering Systems Acquiring Traction?

The electrically powered steering system (EPS) is expected to be highly popular, as it is not attached to a steering rack or column. Thus, the EPS system reduces emissions and is an economic option. These qualities of the EPS system are making it favourable for use. Fact.MR expects sales of electric power steering systems to expand at a CAGR of over 5% until 2031.

In addition, it also provides assistance for road speed and vehicle type. Not only does the EPS system reduce emissions but it also reduces environmental hazards as there are no chances of leakages. All these factors are driving the sales of the electric power steering systems.

Why are HCV Manufacturers Seeking Automotive Steering Systems?

Heavy commercial vehicle (HCV) manufacturers are leveraging hydraulic and electro-hydraulic automotive steering systems for reduced steering control force and enhanced fuel efficiency. A revenue share worth 40% is projected for this segment.

Several advanced technology automotive steering system designs also integrate features such as an electronic stability program and anti-lock braking system. Moreover, manufacturers of the automotive steering systems are also investing their R&D efforts in innovations regarding advanced technology driver assistance and power consumption.

Competitive Landscape

Key players in the automotive steering system are focusing on providing comfort and safety to people. Also, companies are constantly integrating latest technological advancements that would reduce the chances of vehicle failures.

  • For instance, in July 2021, Hyundai Mobis has developed world’s first brainwaves based on the ADAS technology. With the help of this technology, the brainwaves can measure the drives state and alert to avoid accidents.
