Expansion of Automotive Alloy Wheels Market

Cast and forged alloy wheels are preferred in SUVs over steel wheels. Increasing penetration of SUVs witnessed in the last five years indicate a potential market for alloy wheels. SUVs have been early adopters of alloy wheels due to better off road handling capabilities, improved steering, and reduced unsprung weight of the vehicle. Electric vehicles are gaining popularity globally. Electric vehicles must be lightweight to offset the weight of the battery. Consequently, a rise in sales of electric vehicles is projected to boost the sales of alloy wheels. Moreover, rise in car ownership among youth consumers is driving the demand for aesthetically appealing wheels such as alloy wheels.

Drivers of Automotive Alloy Wheels Market

  • Increase in stringency of emission norms is estimated to drive the demand for lightweight components such as alloy wheels. Alloy wheels are lighter than steel wheels and help achieve better fuel economy. Automakers are adopting the automotive alloy wheel to improve fuel efficiency of the vehicle and lower emissions.
  • Light weighting is imperative for electric vehicles. Rise in sales of electric vehicles is anticipated to boost the demand for alloy wheels.
  • Rise in disposable income of consumers and revival of the global economy are boosting the demand for alloy wheels. Alloy wheels can be fabricated into intricate styles and complex shapes, thereby prompting wheel manufacturers to develop esthetically appealing wheels. Rising competition among automakers has led to increased focus on esthetic appeal of the vehicle. Alloy wheels have evolved from being a mere mechanical component to an attractive feature that promotes the brand of the vehicle. Increased emphasis by automakers to improve vehicle esthetics is projected to drive the automotive alloy wheels market.

Challenges for Automotive Alloy Wheels Market

  • Alloy wheels are expensive and several car manufacturers use steel wheels as standard fitments in budget cars. Latin America and Middle East & Africa are price sensitive markets and alloy wheels have low preference primarily in the aftermarket. The high price of alloy wheels is a major factor restraining the market.

The global automotive alloy wheels market has been segmented based OEM, aftermarket, and region

  • Based on OEM, the market has been classified into commercial vehicle and passenger vehicle. The passenger vehicle segment dominated the global automotive alloy wheels market in 2019. Sport Utility Vehicles (SUVs) were a preferred choice of consumers, globally, accounting for 57,495 units of total 166,846 passenger vehicles sold in 2019, globally. Passenger vehicles are majorly purchased to fulfill consumers’ requirement for transportation, while commercial vehicles are utilized for construction, mining, logistics and other purposes. Globally, passenger vehicles dominated vehicle sales in 2019, recording Y-o-Y growth in number of passenger vehicles sold. Furthermore, alloy wheels are adopted by automakers to reduce vehicle weight and increase fuel-efficiency of their vehicles. All these factors are boosting the passenger vehicle segment of the global automotive alloy wheels market.
  • Based on aftermarket, the passenger vehicle segment is anticipated to hold a leading share during the forecast period, owing to rising customization and replacements post-crash. The lifespan of alloy wheels is similar to that of the vehicle itself; hence, the aftermarket segment accounted for a minor share of the global automotive wheels market. However, maintenance and repairs of vehicles involved in a crash attributed to the increase in market share. Furthermore, rise in number of on road passenger and commercial vehicles in the near future is anticipated to propel the aftermarket segment of the global automotive alloy wheels market during the forecast period.

Regional Analysis
