2014 North American Category Management Report—Steering and Linkage Components
Total manufacturer-level revenue is forecast to increase from $ million in 2013 to approximately $ million in 2020. Unit shipments are expected to increase from million to million over the same period.
Control arms (CAGR %) and steering gears (CAGR %) are expected to lead market growth for steering and linkage components. Revenue for ball joints, tie rod ends, and center and drag links are projected to decline during 2013–2020.
Average manufacturer-level prices are expected to increase by a CAGR of % from 2013 to 2020. The key factors will probably be increasing sales of higher-priced electric power steering gears in place of hydraulic parts, and aluminum control arms in place of steel units.
Traditional warehouse distributors accounted for just over half of all manufacturer-level revenue in 2013, but retail store chains are gaining share of steering and linkage component sales with private-label parts supplied through two-step distribution channels.
Federal-Mogul captured approximately % of manufacturer-level revenue in 2013, which includes the share of its recently acquired Affinia Group chassis business. However, the company is likely to face increasing competition in the forecast period from discount brand suppliers such as Dorman Products, Mevotech, and Qualis Automotive.
