Automotive Axle & Propeller Shaft Market by Position (Front, Rear, and Inter-Axle Propeller Shaft), Axle Type (Live, Dead, and Tandem Axle), Propeller Shaft Type (Single, and Multi Piece), Material (Alloy, and Carbon Fiber) - Global Forecast to 2021

“Growing adoption of AWD vehicles as well as advancement in engineering to enhance vehicle performance to drive the demand for axle and propeller shaft”
The global axle and propeller shaft sales is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 8.22%, to reach USD 58.07 billion during 2016-2021 period. Growing adoption of AWD vehicles, growth in vehicle production as well as advancement in engineering to enhance vehicle performance and fuel efficiency are estimated to drive the market. However, fluctuating raw material prices and pricing pressure from automotive OEM’s are expected to be major challenges for axle and propeller shaft manufacturers.

Carbon fiber propeller shaft is the fastest growing segment
Carbon fiber composites are being used in automotive components owing to their structural advantages over their metallic counterparts. These include lower weight and higher strength, which are of vital importance to the OEMs. The cost is expected to decline with mass adoption and improved manufacturing process, which is projected to make carbon fiber propeller shaft more competitive in the marketplace. These factors would make the carbon fiber propeller shaft segment to be one of the fastest growing markets.
