Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Automotive Shock Absorber Rubber Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global automotive shock absorber rubber market: Columbia Engineered Rubber, EKKO Rubber and Senior Rubbers.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Cooper Standard and Greene Rubber Company.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is increasing use of high-performance silicone rubber. There is an increase in the demand for power and performance of vehicles. The heat generated from downsized engines due to the high compression ratio has increased and requires to be managed and considered.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is price margin factors. The aftermarket for automotive parts includes a wide range of overhauled parts and components. The pricing of the parts and components of the vehicles depends on the positioning of the supply chain. The aftermarket is very discount-driven and has different parameters and pricing at each distribution level. It tends to be difficult to offer a general option and an overview of prices for shock absorber rubbers, mainly due to the diverse range of types and models of shock absorber rubbers offered by suppliers in the market.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is wear and leakage of suspension components owing to overloading and road conditions. When driving a vehicle, the shocks and struts of the vehicles are always in use. Similar to most of the other components of the car, the continuous use of the suspension components will lead to wear and tear, and they would lose the ability to function and serve their purpose. There are mainly three types of shock absorbers, namely electrical shock absorbers, uncoiled shock absorbers, and coiled shock absorbers. The electrical shock absorbers help to elevate the vehicle in tough road conditions and potholes, and these shock absorbers are used in vehicles such as BMWs, Range Rovers, and Prados.
