According to the latest report by IMARC Group, the global automotive multi-wheel drive market reached a volume of 15.2 Million Units in 2021. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach 20.4 Million Units by 2027, exhibiting at a CAGR of 4.8% during 2022-2027.
Automotive multi-wheel drive (MWD) refers to a system in which a vehicle’s engine supplies equal power to all its tires. Also known as all-wheel drive (AWD), it does not require any driver intervention to activate all the wheels and constantly remains active.
In this system, sensors are installed on each wheel to monitor traction, speed and several other data points. Unlike a four-wheel drive (4WD), a multi-wheel drive uses a center differential to send a variable amount of torque to each axle, the rod passing through the center of a wheel. This allows the front and rear wheels to rotate at the same speed, which improves stability and traction of the automobile.

Global Automotive Multi-Wheel Drive Market Trends:
Automotive multi-wheel drive systems offer various advantages, such as better weight management, safety and traction; and increased control and grip under all road conditions. These features have prompted automobile companies to employ these systems in various premium and multi-utility vehicles such as sedans, wagons, crossovers and SUVs. Nowadays, several electric cars, including the Jaguar I-Pace and the Audi e-tron, also have all-wheel drive systems. Further, advancements in technology have led to the introduction of more intelligent systems which automatically change to the rear or front wheel drive based on the requirement.
Moreover, leading automotive companies are introducing multi-wheel drive vehicles with latest AWD coupling equipped with an integrated electronic control unit (ECU) to provide the desired driving characteristics. For instance, BorgWarner has produced the fifth generation (GenV) all-wheel drive (AWD) technology with a compact and lightweight design. This system provides easy integration into the drivetrain and high torque accuracy for improved fuel economy.
