Axle & Transaxle Manufacturing
The Axle and Transaxle Manufacturing industry has experienced marginal growth over the five years to 2019. While new car sales have tapered in recent years, increased access to credit, as well as growing disposable income, has incentivized light-vehicle manufacturers to enhance production of light-duty vehicles. As a result, more industry-relevant goods are needed for these vehicles to drive and function properly. Consequently, industry revenue is expected to increase. Industry revenue has been further aided as automakers have shifted production schedules to manufacture more light trucks as opposed to sedans and compact cars. As fuel prices have declined during much of the period, consumers have consistently demanded more trucks and SUVs, and automakers have shifted production schedules accordingly. Over the five years to 2024, revenue for the Axle and Transaxle Manufacturing industry is anticipated to sustain similar growth. Strong macroeconomic conditions are expected to persist and new car sales are anticipated to tick higher, aiding industry revenue. Furthermore, increasing steel prices may enable axle manufacturers to charge a higher price point to downstream automakers for these powertrain components.
This industry manufactures axles and transaxles for motor vehicles. Axles connect two parallel wheels while transaxles combine the functions of the axle, differential and transmission. Axles and transaxles are used primarily by automakers and heavy-duty truck manufacturers.
