Suspension Market by System (Passive & Semi-Active/Active), Damping (Hydraulic/Pneumatic, Electromagnetic), Architecture (Dependent & Semi-Independent/Independent), Leaf Spring & Air Suspension Markets, Component, Vehicle Type, & by Region-Forecast to 2021
The suspension system market is projected to grow at the CAGR of 5.11% from 2016 to 2021 to reach the market size of USD 67.22 billion by 2021. The major factors driving the growth of this market include demand for better comfort, safety, and road handling capabilities of suspension systems. Additionally, the demand for light-weight vehicles is leading to the increased demand for advanced suspension systems.
“Asia-Oceania: High Growth Potential Market”
The suspension system market has witnessed considerable growth in emerging economies such as China and India. The Chinese automotive market is growing as the economy and spending capability of the population is growing. Infrastructural developments are boosting the growth of the commercial vehicle segment. The substantial population in this region and government support for foreign direct investments (FDIs) has presented attractive market opportunities for suspension manufacturers and suspension suppliers. For instance, the Government of India allows 100% FDI for the automotive sector. Additionally, improving socio-economic conditions in countries such as India, Thailand, and Indonesia has resulted in increased demand for high end vehicles, in turn increasing demand for advanced suspension systems.
“Semi-independent/independent suspension: Technology for present and future”
The demand for semi-independent/independent suspension systems is increasing continuously as it isolates the body from road shocks and vibrations, hence providing increased safety and comfort for passengers while travelling. The major types of semi-independent/independent suspension system are MacPherson strut and double wishbone, which are majorly used in the passenger car segment. The demand for semi-independent and independent suspension systems is highest in North America. The factor which is majorly driving the market is increasing demand for luxury vehicles in this region. In the U.S., sales of BMW (Germany), Lexus (Japan) and Mercedes Benz (Germany) have increased by 1.8%, 10.7%, and 3.8%, respectively, in 2015 as compared to 2014. The sales of light vehicle were up by 5.7% compared to 2014. These factors directly impact the semi-independent/independent suspension system market.
