Global Automotive Piston Pin Market 2015-2019

About automotive piston and piston pin

An automotive piston is a tubular piece of metal that moves up and down inside the cylinder of an engine. It generates mechanical energy that provides the necessary power to drive the shaft and consequently the wheels of an automobile. In an engine, automotive piston primarily functions by transferring force from expanding gas in the cylinder to the crankshaft via piston rod or with the help of a connecting rod.

A piston pin, otherwise called as gudgeon pin, acts as the link between a piston and the connecting rod. Usually hollow, made of alloy steel, these are made to withstand high load and highest temperature generated in the combustion chamber. With its impact on piston working and performance of an engine, a piston pin must meet different requirements in terms of strength and surface hardness to withstand high load and temperature. It must be of lightweight, to keep inertia forces minimal, and stiffness must be matched to piston design to avoid overloading to the piston.

Technavio analysts forecast the global piston pin market to grow at a CAGR of 5.55% over the period 2014-2019.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Automotive Piston Pin Market 2015-2019

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Automotive Piston Pin Market: Aisin Seiki, Art Metal, Federal-Mogul, KSPG and MAHLE

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Arias Pistons, BoHai Piston, Burgess-Norton, Ming Shun, Ross Racing Pistons and Shriram Pistons and Rings

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Piston pins are usually made of alloy steel, which offers economic pricing and wear-resistance. However, drag racing and endurance racing vehicles require high-performance components that reduce the reciprocating weight and provide zero RPM and horsepower lag. This need has led to the development of piston pins made of titanium, which are lightweight and structurally stable.”

According to the report, the economic recession of 2008 had a devastating impact on the American automobile industry. The Americas are the second largest manufacturers of automotive in the world, after China. The recession led to a decrease in consumer spending, which negatively affected the sales of automobiles.

Further, the report states that high replacement cost hinders the market growth.
