Market Definition and Introduction
The clutch housing is metal case which is used for covering the clutch and the flywheel mechanism. Clutch housing is also known as bell housing as it looks a somewhat similar to the shape of the bell. The key function of the clutch housing is to protect the clutch and flywheel mechanism from the dirt, water and pollution of the environment. Clutch housing is bolted to the engine block and is usually made up of metals such as cast iron or aluminium. Clutch housing is manufactured by cold forming of thick metals. The alignment of the clutch housing is relative to the flywheel axis, and this is done with the help of bolts, collars, and locating pins. The clutch housing should be designed and manufactured in such a way so that it ensures good airing and ventilations for cooling the friction surfaces inside the assembly. Moreover, it should also have proper openings to remove the wear products from the mechanism.

Key Trends, Drivers & Challenges for the Global Clutch Housing Market
Currently, manufacturers of Clutch Housing systems have been focusing aggressively on innovative product developments to develop and launch new Clutch Housing systems that are strong and provide proper ventilation to the friction components within the housing. It should be noted that the demand for new automobiles is being fuelled by the ever rising number of international as well as domestic passengers along with the increasing fast transportation. This increase in demand for new vehicles will, in turn, fuel the global demand for clutch housing systems in future.
In developed economies, vehicle buyers are looking for equipment equipped with advanced diagnosis and automation. Through process R&D and product innovation in advanced telematics systems, manufacturers have significantly improved their response time for such custom requirements from clients. This trend is expected to gain traction across the global market and create tremendous opportunity in the near future and in turn fuel market growth of clutch housing.
Prominent market players in global market are trying to develop strong and long lasting clutch housing for all the vehicles. The advancement in the material science technologies in the manufacturing industries have enabled them to use new invented materials such as alloys of steel and aluminium, which makes the engine body which includes clutch housing assembly of the vehicles stronger and durable under extreme load conditions
However, the relatively higher price of advanced clutch housing systems is proving to be a deterrent for smaller, low-budget passenger cars and two wheelers. This particular factor is seen to be hampering the growth rate of the global clutch housing systems market. Additionally, one of the socio-economic factors for the global clutch housing market is the rising automation and technology which is a boon for the faster and accurate production of automotive components but, it has also larger impact on the unemployment rate. Automation and technological advances may lead to high unemployment rates in the global automotive market in the near future. Also, an increasingly pollution level due to the commercial vehicles is being witnessed across multiple countries which has translated into various regulatory bodies of different countries. For instance, the pollution control boards across various regions have made it mandatory for the automotive manufacturers to ensure the installation of eco-friendly products and the use of good quality of fuel.
