People of Europe are drawn towards sports driving experience, hence the ratio of manual transmission in Europe is relatively higher than North America, where the automatic transmission is the mainstream.
Automotive clutch, located between the engine and the transmission, is an isolated part transmitting power from engine to the gearbox, and it allows the transmission to be interrupted while a gear is selected to move off from a stationary position, or when gears are changed while the car is moving. An automotive clutch can help the driver enjoy a smooth start and facilitate shaft. It can also prevent transmission overload and reduce the impact of torsional vibration.
Vehicles with manual transmissions (MT), automated manual transmissions (AMT) and dual clutch transmissions (DCT) use automotive clutches to transmit power from engine to the gearbox. However, in automatic transmissions (AT) and continuously variable transmissions (CVT) vehicles, the torque converter uses a mechanical clutch to transmit power.
An automotive clutch assembly consists of many small parts, but there are five major components: the clutch flywheel, the clutch pressure plate, the clutch disc, the throw-out clutch bearing, and release system.
The major sales markets are Europe and China. People of Europe are drawn towards sports driving experience, hence the ratio of manual transmission in Europe is relatively higher than North America, where the automatic transmission is the mainstream. In addition, DCT is also a developing trend in Europe.
China is another important market and is increasingly important due to the fast growing automotive production and automotive population. Continuing the historical trend, manual transmission ration is still high both in new car production and automotive population.
As an imporant part of the global automotive market, Japan automotive clutch market is relative small as an automatic transmission is the mainstream and CVT is more and more popular.
