    • Global Electric power steering market is estimated to be driven with the help of growth in mid and low budget segment vehicles.
    • On the other hand, most of the OEMs have started focusing on implementing cost-effectiveness and EPS systems in commercial vehicles, expected to drive the market growth in the long term prospective.
    • Asia-Pacific region is estimated to drive the electric power steering market growth during the forecast period from 2021 to 2026, owing to the growth of vehicle production, favorable government regulation, vehicle emission, electric vehicle penetration, growing disposable income and among other factors.
    • Despite the high demand for electric power steering systems, this market still experiences certain obstacles. The higher cost of EPS as compared to traditional steering systems and lack of steering feel can hinder the growth of the market.
    • With the advent of autonomous vehicles, OEMs are innovating their conventional steering system.



    Power steering systems supplement the torque that the driver applies to the steering wheel. Traditional power steering systems are hydraulic systems, but electric power steering (EPS) is becoming much more common. EPS eliminates many HPS components such as the pump, hoses, fluid, drive belt, and pulley. For this reason, electric steering systems tend to be smaller and lighter than hydraulic systems.


    EPS systems have variable power assist, which provides more assistance at lower vehicle speeds and less assistance at higher speeds. They do not require any significant power to operate when no steering assistance is required. For this reason, they are more energy efficient than hydraulic systems.

    There are four forms of EPS based on the position of the assist motor. They are the column assist type (C-EPS), the pinion assist type (P-EPS), the direct drive type (D-EPS) and the rack assist type (R-EPS). The C-EPS type has a power assist unit, torque sensor, and controller all connected to the steering column. In the P-EPS system, the power assist unit is connected to the steering gear’s pinion shaft. This type of system works well in small cars. The D-EPS system has low inertia and friction because the steering gear and assist unit are a single unit. The R-EPS type has the assist unit connected to the steering gear. R-EPS systems can be used on mid- to full-sized vehicles due to their relatively low inertia from high reduction gear ratios.


    Unlike a hydraulic power steering system that continuously drives a hydraulic pump, the efficiency advantage of an EPS system is that it powers the EPS motor only when necessary. This results in reduced vehicle fuel consumption compared to the same vehicle with an HPS system. These systems can be tuned by simply modifying the software controlling the ECU. This provides a unique and cost effective opportunity to adjust the steering “feel” to suit the automotive model class. An additional advantage of EPS is its ability to compensate for one-sided forces such as a flat tire. It is also capable of steering in emergency maneuvers in conjunction with the electronic stability control.

    Drivers Of The Electric Power Steering Market: Global Measures By OEMs To Reduce Complexity And Weight Of Vehicles

    Over the last few years, OEMs have shifted focus from hydraulic to electric power steering systems in the interests of reduced complexity and increased efficiency. EPS systems use an electric motor instead of a hydraulic pump to provide steering assistance and thus help to reduce the weight of the vehicle. Electronic sensors calculate the amount of steering force being applied by the driver and, with the help of an electric motor, the force is amplified to make steering easier


    Restraints Of The Electric Power Steering Market: High Cost And Lack Of Steering Feel

    Despite the high demand for electric power steering systems, this market still experiences certain obstacles. The higher cost of EPS as compared to traditional steering systems and lack of steering feel can hinder the growth of the market.


    Opportunities For The Electric Power Steering Market: Penetration In Commercial Vehicles

    Presently, the power steering market of commercial vehicles is dominated by hydraulic power steering (HPS), which has a complicated structure, consumes high power, leaks easily, and is difficult to control. EPS offers the advantages of adjustable power, good steering, low fuel consumption, and no pollution. Therefore, it would gradually be used in commercial vehicles.


    Threats For The Electric Power Steering Market: Maintaining Market Against Steer-By-Wire Technology

    The steering market in the automotive industry is continuously evolving with the changing dynamics of this industry. With the advent of autonomous vehicles, OEMs are innovating their conventional steering system. Steer-by-wire technology is one such innovation that will replace the entire steering system in an autonomous vehicle. This type of steering system will remove the steering linkage of a traditional electric power steering system.


    Asia Pacific Is Estimated To Be The Fastest Growing Electric Power Steering Market

    The electric power steering market for Asia Pacific is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. High volume markets with increased demand for electronic and fuel efficient systems in passenger cars make Asia Pacific the largest and fastest growing market for electric power steering. Also, the existing and upcoming vehicle emission regulations in developing countries will further drive the market growth in the region.




    The Global Electric Power Steering Market report provides a holistic evaluation of the market. The report offers a comprehensive analysis of key segments, trends, drivers, restraints, competitive landscape, and factors that are playing a substantial role in the market.
