The automotive drive shaft market is expected to witness market growth at a rate of approximately 6.5% in the forecast period of 2021 to 2028. Data Bridge Market Research report on automotive drive shaft market provides analysis and insights regarding the various factors expected to be prevalent throughout the forecast period while providing their impacts on the market’s growth. The rising concern for fuel efficiency globally is escalating the growth of automotive drive shaft market.
Drive shaft also possesses various other names such as tail shaft, propeller shaft, cardan shaft or driving shaft. It has the ability to take the power from the engine and delivers it to the wheels and is utilized to drive the car. Drive shaft is supposed to be strong and lightweight to absorb the torque of the engine in order for it to reduce the overall weight of the vehicle. It should be balanced properly and should spin equal to the torque for smooth driveline performance. They are found in 4WD and AWD cars and cannot be used in wheel drive cars.
The rise in concern for fuel efficiency, the implementation of stringent regulations by the international emission control authorities and the development of drive shafts by manufacturers without compromising on their performance and rigidness are the major factors driving the automotive drive shaft market. The increasing production and sales of all-wheel drive (AWD) vehicles, because of the installment of two drive shafts in these vehicles, high demand for hollow drive shafts because of their flexibility and improvised performance over the conventional and heavy solid type, and their use for sustaining several torques received from the engine accelerate the automotive drive shaft market growth. Additionally, the increase in need for reduction in the automotive industry, high sales of passenger cars, rapid urbanization, economic growth and rise in disposable income of people positively affect the automotive drive shaft market. Furthermore, technological advancement and product innovations extend profitable opportunities to the automotive drive shaft market players in the forecast period of 2021 to 2028.
On the other hand, the emergence of composite drive shafts and high cost associated with the replacement of drive shaft are the major factors expected to obstruct the automotive drive shaft market growth. The rise in concerns with the heavy weight of the product is projected to challenge the automotive drive shaft market in the forecast period of 2021 to 2028.
