The European Steering and Suspension Parts Market, 2012 - 2020; Market size, market forecast and recommendations

Summary

The steering and suspension parts market in Europe has been affected by the degradation of many roads following the European economic recession. Potholes and poor road surfaces in many countries have impacted the longevity of steering and suspension parts, with the volumes sold increasing 2.4% in 2012–16, whilst values grew by 7.6% over the same period, reflecting the use of lighter-weight and more corrosion-resistant metals such as aluminum and plastic in their manufacture.

Looking to the future, volumes are forecast to grow by 5.9% across Europe whilst values are expected to increase by 9.2% as the trend for light-weighting materials continues.

The European steering and suspension parts market is influenced by a number of external factors. Localized factors such as road quality and grit will cause general wear and tear over time. The parts also age with time, and as the parts rust they become fragile. With many European roads suffering from a lack of maintenance due to reductions in government spending as they attempt to cut deficits and manage the effects of austerity measure and fragile economies, steering and suspension parts can become damaged from potholes, if driven over consistently. This shortens their working life, and increases the rate at which they need to be replaced.

Scope
