European Leaf Spring Market. By Vehicle Type, Material and Country– Trends and Forecast to 2021

European Leaf Spring Market. By Vehicle Type, Material and Country– Trends and Forecast to 2021

The European leaf spring market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 3.63% from 2016 to 2021. A leaf spring is a type of vehicle suspension system that is composed of numerous strips of steel orcomposite material joined together to work as a single unit. The strips are curved into an arc and attached to the frame. Leaf springs divide the vehicle weight evenly over the vehicle chassis to enhance the ride quality. The leaf spring suspension system is one of the oldest suspension technologies used in automobiles. They are considered the simplest and subsequently the most suitable suspension technology for commercial vehicles. The European leaf spring market has been segmented by vehicle type (LCVs and HCVs), by material (steel and glass fiber reinforced plastic) and by country (Germany, U.K., France, Spain, Italy, and Turkey). This report has profiled key players and comprehensively analyzed their core competencies along with a detailed technological overview of leaf springs on the basis of their material, cost, weight, manufacturing process, and size."
