On the basis of vehicle type, the automotive steering systems market is segmented into light commercial vehicles (LCV), heavy commercial vehicles (HCV), and passenger vehicles.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio's team said: "Automobile manufacturers and consumers are shifting their focus to more-efficient, safer and smarter, and small and lightweight (small and less weight means reduced fuel consumption, in turn reducing emissions) automotive steering systems.
At highway speeds, the system further optimizes steering response, enabling the vehicle to react more smoothly and precisely to driver input.
