NEW YORK, Feb. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Executive Summary—Key Findings

-With the proliferation of advanced safety solutions, it is only a matter of time before steering electrification is implemented to achieve the next level of safety.

-Electrically Actuated Power Steering Market for LCV and MCV: Key Findings, Europe, 2014–2021

-Market Size: Market size of steering electrification stands at about in 2014, comprising of % vehicles in the LCV and MCV segment.

-Forecast: Steering electrification market for LCV and MCV is expected to register a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of % during 2014–2021, surpassing 1 Million installed base as early as 2018.

-Key Solutions: Apart from the standard off-the-shelf solutions such as electric power assisted steering (EPAS) and electro-hydraulic power steering (EHPS), plug-and-play solutions such as tedrive's iHSA can also be used in heavier vehicles in the range of to tons.

-Market Leading OEMs: Mercedes Benz Vans along with Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles and Fiat Professional held a combined market share of about % in electrified steering in 2014 in Europe for the LCV segment. However, the MCV segment is yet to see an electrified steering solution.
