Market Overview:

The global Drive by Wire market was projected at USD 17.49 billion in 2021 and is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 8.86% during the foreseen period to reach USD 34.63 billion by 2026.

A drive-by-wire may be a system where the mechanical components are replaced and controlled by sensor technologies. Sensors record the knowledge and pass the info to a computer or a series of machines that convert the electricity to mechanical motion. This technology eliminates the necessity to use conventional components like drive-belts, pumps, drive-shafts, vacuum boosters, and master cylinders and uses electric motors and electro-mechanical actuators to perform the functions administered by the traditional mechanical or hydraulic components to satisfy the need for weight reduction and improved vehicle performance.

Moreover, the automotive industry is more inclined to use advanced technologies to extend fuel efficiency, curb the emission levels, and improve the driving dynamics of the vehicle.

Recent Developments:

Summit Racing now offers Granatelli Motor Sports Drive-By-Wire Throttle Bodies. They're designed to extend airflow across the engine's RPM range for more horsepower and acceleration.

German automotive supplier Schaeffler purchases drive-by-wire technology Space Drive from Paravan GmbH, which will play a key role in self-driving cars.

TomTom has launched its first-ever autonomous test vehicle because it looks to enhance its various mapping technologies aimed toward the drive-by-wire technology car industry.

Drivers and Restraints of Drive by Wire:


Factors like rising in the development of autonomous vehicles are driving the expansion of the global drive by wire market. Additionally, an increase in connected infrastructure is anticipated to spice up the expansion of the market. Moreover, the high cost of the drive-by-wire system and threat of knowledge hacking and malfunctioning is predicted to hinder the expansion of the market. Furthermore, the development of smart cities presents remarkable growth opportunities for the key players operating within the drive by wire market.


Adoption of drive by wire systems began about two decades ago, first in the military, and later in commercial aircraft and now in the ground transportation. Conventional vehicles used hydraulic pressure, cables, and others to supply the driver with direct and physical control over the speed and direction of the car. However, drive by wire technology uses electronics control to hold out the functioning of brakes, steering, and operate other systems. Additionally, the value of designing, manufacturing, and installing drive by wire systems is high and adds up to the amount of vehicle. Moreover, high price associated with driving by wire system is anticipated to hinder the expansion of the global drive by wire market.

Market Segmentation:

Drive By Wire Market, By Application

  • Throttle-by-wire 
  • Steer-by-wire 
  • Shift-by-wire 
  • Brake-by-wire 
  • Park-by-wire 

Drive By Wire Market, By Sensor

  • Throttle pedal sensor 
  • Throttle position sensor 
  • Pinion angle sensor 
  • Handwheel angle sensor 
  • Gear shift position sensor 
  • Park sensor 
  • Brake pedal sensor 

Brake pedal sensor is likely to be the fastest-growing segment for drive by wire market, by sensor type, during the forecast period. This sensor is placed within the brake-by-wire system that gives vehicle safety compensation for driver errors or delayed reaction times. Moreover, with the increasing demand for drive by wire, the marketplace for the pedal sensor is predicted to extend. 

Drive By Wire Market, By Component

  • Electronic control unit 
  • Engine control module 
  • Actuator 
  • Feedback motor 
  • Parking pawl 
  • Electronic throttle control module 
  • Electronic transmission control unit 

The electronic control unit (ECU) is estimated to be the most crucial marketplace for drive by wire, by component, due to its usage in every drive by wire application and its cost compared to other elements makes it the best market.

Drive By Wire Market, By Vehicle Type

  • Passenger cars 
  • Commercial Vehicle
  • Electric Vehicle
  • Off-Highway Vehicle

On the idea of vehicle type, the passenger car segment accounts for the largest in terms of volume and value. This is often attributed to the increasing demand for passenger cars with advanced systems in developed and developing countries. The segment is witnessing the best sales of premium and luxury vehicles equipped with a drive-by-wire system offering high performance along with safety and luxury features.

Autonomous vehicles have several advantages over traditional cars from improved safety to a reduction in fuel and traffic jam and emissions. An autonomous vehicle is installed with a variety of sensors including LiDAR, RADAR, camera, GPS, and drive by wire system. These sensors are short-range (providing details of moving objects near the vehicle) also as long-range (providing details of high-speed oncoming vehicles) to assist the vehicle sense any purpose or obstacle in its way, thus eliminating the probabilities of accidents. Whereas, the drive-by system is employed to electronically control the functions of auto instead of traditional mechanical linkages. Autonomous vehicles also can help reduce traffic jam, supported a study by the University of Illinois, it had been proved that one autonomous car stuck during a traffic jam with 20 other human-driven cars, can ease congestion by controlling its pace and hence speed of all the different vehicles within the jelly. However, rise focused on the development of autonomous vehicle is anticipated to propel the expansion of the drive by wire system market in future.
