Air Suspension Market by Vehicle Type (PC, LCV, Truck & Bus), Component (Air Spring, Shock Absorber, Air Compressor, ECU, Air Reservoir & Height Sensors), Technology (Electronically & Non-Electronically Controlled), & by Region - Global Forecast to 2021
“Increasing demand for luxury and comfort in passenger cars and growing demand for luxury buses are the major drivers of the air suspension market”
The air suspension market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.54% from 2016 to 2021, to reach a market size of USD 4.69 billion by 2021. The major drivers for this market are rising demand for comfort and luxury, as a result of increased disposable income, increased preference towards luxury public transport for long distance travel among others are together driving the market for air suspension systems globally.
“Non- Electronically Controlled Air Suspension System: Largest Technology Market”
Owing to its low cost, less complex design and easy handling as compared with electronically controlled air suspension, the market for non-electronically controlled air suspension is largest. The system has a very simple electric connection where air flow inwards and outwards from the air springs through valves. All the wheels have a good grip to the road surface which leads to increased stability of the steering system and improved braking performance.
“Europe is projected to be the largest market segment while Asia-Oceania is the fastest growing market segment”
Europe accounts for the largest market share, both in terms of value and volume, as the region houses a number of premium car manufacturers as well as air suspension manufacturers like Continental AG (Germany), Dunlop Systems and Components (U.K.) and ThyssenKrupp AG (Germany) and hence is able to cater to a large variety of consumers. Asia-Oceania is the fastest growing market, both in terms of value and volume, for air suspension. This is because of the high demand for vehicles, especially in emerging economies such as China and India with several OEMs investing in these regions. Availability of cheap labor and favorable government policies are additional factors that spur this growth.
