Automotive Suspension Market Size, Share, Trends, Growth, Analysis, Research

Automotive Suspension Market: Summary

The Global Automotive Suspension Market is projected to reach around USD 77.5 billion by 2027 at a CAGR of around 4.3%.

Suspension system is an essential part of a vehicle which prevents damage to the vehicle components and provide safety and comfort while driving. Automotive suspension system consists of multiple components such as tires, springs, shock absorbers, linkages, struts, and others that attach the vehicle to its wheel and allows relative motion between wheel and vehicle body.  The main function of this system is to separate the vehicle body from vibrations and shocks due to vehicle tires in contact of the road surface.

Automotive Suspension Market: Drivers & Restraints

Market Driver:

  • Rise in Demand for Safety and Comfort

Safety is a primary requirement in the automotive sector. Any safety failures may result in severe injury or loss of life. With the help of suspension systems even on rough roads a driver can ride the vehicle with comfort as it keeps the tires in contact with road, allows the vehicle to corner with minimum sway or roll and ensures satisfactory breaking power required. This helps in keeping the vehicle controlled during high speeds and avoid accidental situation.

Thus, the rise in demand for safety and comfort is expected to drive the automotive suspension market growth during the forecast period.

  • Growing Vehicle Production

Growing vehicle production increases the demand for the number of suspension system required. Owing to growing population and rising per capita income along with favorable foreign direct investment is driving the demand for the vehicle production. For instance, in 2018, India, Malaysia, Thailand, Russia and among others are the prominent countries that have shown positive growth of 8%, 12.2%, 9%, 13.9%, respectively.

Thus, growing vehicle production is anticipated to boost the market growth during the forecast period.

Market Restraint:

  • High Cost of Suspension System

The initial cost of advanced suspension is high and in addition to it the operational, installation and frequent maintenance cost increases the overall expenditure of this system which acts as a restraint to the market growth. For instance, the initial price of air suspension is costly as it provides the smoothest and most stable driving experiences due to which it is only used for upscale vehicles such as high-end luxury cars and heavy-duty off-road vehicles.

Thus, the high cost of suspension system is a restraining factor for automotive suspension market growth during the forecast period.
