Global Automobile Limited Slip Differential Market to Grow at a CAGR of 5.3% During the Period 2022-2027, Driven by Growth in the Automobile Sector

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘Global Automobile Limited Slip Differential Market Report and Forecast 2022-2027’, the global automobile limited slip differential market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.3% during the period 2022-2027, led by advancements in technology.

The global automobile limited slip differential market is expected to be driven by growth in the automobile sector, advancements in technology, and benefits afforded by limited slip differentials. Benefits of limited slip differential include better off-road traction, superior traction on paved surfaces, decreased tyre wear, and lesser axle shaft wear. These benefits are expected to stimulate market growth. North America, Europe and Asia are expected to be key markets.

Due to their vast range of applications, mechanical limited slip differentials are the most popular type of differential. These work by transferring a portion of the torque to the wheel with the most traction while minimizing the amount of slide on the tyre with the least traction. Limited slip differentials are commonly referred to as "torque sensing" because of this.

The wheels can revolve at various speeds, just like an open differential. With a limited slip differential, however, torque is not always evenly distributed between the wheels. This permits the traction wheel to get additional torque in order to keep the car moving. Thus, the differential is stated to "bias" more torque toward the tyre with better traction. The bias of the differential refers to the amount of torque variation that the differential may transfer between the wheels.

Advancements in in-car electronics have enabled manufacturers to offer e-differentials which act like a limited slip differential by employing wheel speed sensors that convey to the vehicle’s electronics to apply the brakes to a spinning wheel to regulate the car's power delivery. In 2020, Hyundai Wia announced that it would begin mass production of electronic limited slip differential (e-LSD) as the first Korean company to do so.

Hyundai Wia’s electronic limited slip differential (e-LSD) was designed to detect subtle changes in the amount of pressure generated from the inside of the vehicle and respond to it within 0.25 seconds. The company became capable of producing electronic limited slip differential (e-LSD) for both front-wheeled and rear-wheeled vehicles.

New, advanced technologies and innovations are likely to drive the global limited slip differential market. In 2021, Eaton announced that its Vehicle Group had launched an extensive lineup of specialized differentials for electrified vehicles with performance comparable to that of traditional internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles. Eaton’s Traction Control solutions included Truetrac (Helical-gear limited slip differential), ELocker, IntelliTrac (Smart electronically controlled, limited slip differential), MLocker (Automatic, mechanical locking differential), Posi (Limited slip differential), and Open (Compact open differential).

In 2019, Dana Incorporated announced the launch of its Spicer® Trac-Lok™ limited-slip differential for Spicer® S140 single drive axles for medium-duty work truck applications.  The differential offered better traction during unexpected wheel-slip events and utilized a reliable five-pinion design to serve Class 6 applications.

In 2018, American Axle & Manufacturing, Inc. (AAM) and Drexler Automotive GmbH entered into an agreement to expand their association and bring to the general market of light trucks, passenger cars, crossovers and SUVS, high-performance differentials and differential technologies from the premium market.
