Pune, India, April, 2019/MRFR Press Release - Market Research Future published a half-cooked research report on the global drive shaft market.

Market Highlights

A drive shaft is an important component of the drive train and is used to deliver the torque from the transmission to the differential, in order to drive the vehicle. The drive shaft is primarily classified as front drive shaft and rear drive shaft. The type of drive shaft varies according to the vehicle type, for instance the drive types vary greatly in vehicles with distinct configurations for front-wheel drive, four-wheel drive, and the front-engine rear-wheel drive and the position of the drive shaft.

The drive shaft market is primarily driven by the increasing global vehicle production, development of light weight drive shafts, and the increasing demand for four-wheel drive vehicles.

Moreover, the automotive vehicle manufacturers are working on reducing the overall vehicle weight to improve fuel efficiency of vehicle.
