Automotive technologies are increasingly inclining toward driver comfort, safety, and emission control. As a result we can expect the growth in this market.


A key factor driving the growth of the market is the increased number of collaborations, projects, and activities in automotive in-wheel motors. Automobile manufacturers have not shown much eagerness in adopting an immature technology such as automotive in-wheel motors in their models. This has prompted automotive in-wheel suppliers to forge partnerships for developing vehicle prototypes fitted with in-wheel motors. Various companies are forming consortiums to enable the mass-scale production of in-wheel motors going forward. Activities and events showcasing vehicle models retrofitted with in-wheel motors are expected to boost confidence among vehicle makers to adopt in-wheel motor technology in their electric vehicles.

This market research report on the global automotive in-wheel motor market 2019–2023 also provides an analysis of the most important trends expected to impact the market outlook during the forecast period. Technavio classifies an emerging trend as a major factor that has the potential to significantly impact the market and contribute to its growth or decline.
