Automotive Suspension Market By Architecture (MacPherson Strut, Double Wishbone, Multi-link, Twist Beam, Leaf Spring, Air Suspension), System Type, Actuation, Component OE & Aftermarket, Vehicle (ICE, BEV, HEV, PHEV), and Region-Global Forecast To 2025
“Rising demand for comfort & luxury, increased fuel efficiency, decreased emission limits in upcoming regulations, and increase in vehicle production will together drive the automotive suspension market”
The global automotive suspension market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 3.88%, during the forecast period, from an estimated USD 50.76 billion in 2017 to USD 68.84 billion by 2025. With growing vehicle production, the demand for suspension system is projected to grow during forecast period. Alternatively, lack of standardization of independent suspension system and high cost of advanced suspension system are the key factors hindering the growth of the automotive suspension market.
“Automotive suspension market for Air Suspension is estimated to show the fastest growth in terms of value”
The market for air suspension systems is projected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period from 2017 to 2025. The factors such as increasing production of trucks, customer demand for cabin comfort, better control, maneuverability, and stability of the vehicle have led to an increase in the demand for air suspension systems. The demand for luxury buses primarily drives the market for air suspension. The air suspension system employed in buses ensures comfort for passengers and maintains the vehicle height at the desired level during the travel.
“Passive suspension segment is estimated to showcase the largest share in automotive suspension system market”
The passive system is projected to be the largest segment of the automotive suspension market, by system. The passive suspension system is equipped in all kind of architectures such as MacPherson, double wishbone, twist beam, and leaf spring. Majority of the present-day vehicles are equipped with this type of suspension systems as they are easy to install, repair, and economical than the semi-active and active systems. Hence, passive systems are contributing the most in all vehicle types, mainly LCVs and HCVs. Asia Oceania region is the largest market for passive suspension as most of the vehicles in this region have technologically less advanced suspension systems.
“Asia Oceania to dominate the aftermarket growth”
Asia Oceania is estimated to dominate the automotive suspension aftermarket during the forecast period. It is the largest as well as the fastest growing market. The Asia Oceania region comprises of emerging economies such as China and India along with developed economies such as Japan. Asia Oceania is the largest producer of economical cars in the world. Asia Oceania region is expected to show maximum usage of aftermarket components as the road infrastructure is not good, which can damage the suspension system components and increase the need for replacement. However, with the improving quality, durability, and road infrastructure, the demand for aftermarket components will show stagnant growth in future
