EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Electric power steering (EPS) uses an electric motor to assist in the driving of a vehicle. Sensors
detect the position and torque of the steering column, and a computer module applies assistive
torque via the motor, which connects to either the steering gear or steering column. Passenger,
commercial, light commercial vehicle, sports cars are the different end user segments of EPS.
Manual, hydraulic and electric powered steering systems are the key electric power steering types
present in the market currently. Electric steering systems are mechanically less complex with
fewer moving parts and no fluids. It is hence more reliable as well as simple for the OEMs as
well as customers. Fuel economy is the biggest benefit to the end customers due to EPS and is
the major driver for this market growth. It is estimated that significant fuel savings of around
0.3-0.4 liters/100km along with reduction in CO2 emissions of 5-7g/km can be realized due to
EPS. With electric cars growing in shipments and offering competition to fuel based cars, EPS
systems are key factors especially for traditional automotive OEMs to prolong their business
model.

Growth of the overall passenger car sales is being influenced by a variety of factors like subsidies
for electric cars, demand for compact cars and incorporation of connectivity and safety solutions
in the passenger cars by automotive OEMs. The overall market sales are expected to increase
from around 80 million units in 2013 to cross 100 million units by 2018. Increasing car sales
coupled with the increasing amount of sensors and electronic components in the cars will be the
biggest growth driver for the global electric power steering market ecosystem according to
IndustryARC.
