Published Date : Apr 2020 | No. of Pages : 200 Pages | Category :

According to the report, the global automotive shock absorber market size is projected to surpass US$ 15 Bn by 2027, and anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 5% during the forecast period 2020 to 2027.

The market growth can be attributed to a range of factors including technological advancements, rising focus on innovative designs, significant growth of the automotive sector in developing regions such as the Asia Pacific and Latin America, and exponential rise in the number of miles driven. In addition, amidst mounting environmental concerns, automotive manufacturers are increasingly focusing on developing lightweight vehicles wherein suspension systems made from lightweight materials, including aluminum and steel are expected to be used.

This can be attributed to the increase in affordability for vehicles among consumers and transition of people into middle and upper middle income groups. The automotive shock absorber market is mature; however, developments on improving performance of shock absorbers are still boosting the market worldwide. Economic growth witnessed across Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa is increasing per capita income of the population, which in turn is anticipated to boost vehicle sales across countries in the regions mentioned above. This, in turn, is propelling the global automotive shock absorber market.

Drivers of Automotive Shock Absorber Market

  • Rapid rise in the middle class population in Asia Pacific is estimated to drive the automotive industry and in turn boost the demand for shock absorbers. Asia Pacific is a dynamic region given the large domestic consumer base and low manufacturing cost, making it a lucrative region for export supplies. China, India, Japan, and South Korea have attracted auto production that was earlier concentrated in Western countries. High rate of vehicle production in Asia Pacific is the primary driver of the global shock absorber market.
  • Increased penetration of advanced shock absorbers, such as active shock absorbers and shock absorbers with electric motor and pump and continuous damping control valves, is further boosting the automotive shock absorber market
  • Total vehicle miles traveled (VMT) is increasing at a steady pace, globally. Per capita VMT is rising as well. A vehicle is prone to wear & tear, especially shock absorbers, which leads to the replacement of shock absorbers at regular intervals and fuels the VMT and more kilometers covered by the vehicle. This, in turn, is anticipated to increase the replacement of shock absorbers around the globe.

Challenges for Automotive Shock Absorber Market

  • Manufacturers recommend replacing shock absorbers every 50,000 miles; however, several customers prolong shock absorber replacement, which hampers the aftermarket segment
  • It is recommended that shock absorbers be replaced in pairs, i.e., each axle be equipped with a new set of shock absorbers due to wear and tear, leakage or ineffective damping. Replacement of shock absorbers in pairs ensures proper ride handling and safety. However, due to high cost associated in replacing two shock absorbers, consumers generally replace only one, which hampers the sale of aftermarket shock absorbers.
