Covid 19 Analysis

The COVID-19 epidemic has presented the automobile sector with unprecedented problems. Lockdowns, social distance, supply chain interruptions, and trade restrictions have all led to the dramatic decrease of activity in most nations' auto sectors.

Market Dynamic

  •         Drivers  

The use of independent suspension instead of a rear solid axle in current cars, which provides greater control on and off the road and a more comfortable ride, is increasing demand for coil springs, as coil springs are an essential component of independent suspension. Furthermore, increasing rivalry among manufacturers to develop vehicles with competitive features has driven coil spring adoption.

Globally, the average age of cars is increasing demand for shock absorbers in the aftermarket. Furthermore, it is expected that vehicle retention for extended durations would increase the need for maintenance and, as a result, increase sales of shock absorbers. The average age of cars in the EU is increasing year after year due to increased quality and the tendency of owners retaining their car for at least 4-5 years over the loan duration.

  •         Opportunities

Increased infrastructure expenditures and industrialization will provide a slew of new opportunities for the automotive coil spring market over the projected period.

  •         Restraints                 

Overweight on the vehicle might cause spring damage and corrosion, as well as a lack of adequate spring coating, which is likely to be key constraints for the automotive coil spring market over the forecasted period.

  •         Challenges

Coil springs are less suited for big commercial vehicles since they have a lower load-carrying capacity and are less stable than axle-mounted leaf springs. When coil springs are integrated, the vehicle weight is concentrated on a smaller surface area. Furthermore, coil springs are not as effective for load-carrying circumstances as leaf springs.

Leaf springs are mostly used in big commercial vehicles, while coil springs have limited penetration in trucks and buses, limiting the market growth. Because coil springs are more expensive than leaf springs, automakers avoid utilizing them to control the price, which is another major reason impeding the market.

Cumulative Growth Analysis

Participants in the automobile spring coil market on the supplier side of the value chain are keen to investigate the possibilities of automotive coils produced from novel materials. Apart from producing very durable automobile spring coils, businesses are also investigating the possibility of manufacturing innovative automotive coils composed of various materials. While traditional automobile spring coils are constructed of steel, manufacturers are working hard to unleash the potential of automotive spring coils comprised of epoxy resins and glass fiber. For example, the Sogefi Group created a novel technology that may potentially replace steel coil springs in automobiles. Because of its lightweight and low energy consumption, more manufacturers have been gravitating toward the development of automobile coil springs utilizing glass fiber-reinforced polymer (GFRP) in recent years.

In the face of growing environmental concerns, manufacturers are under pressure to create eco-friendly vehicles using lightweight components. While steel automobile coil springs have been available for decades, alternative material automotive coil spring manufacture has only gained pace in the last five to six years. However, the tendency is projected to continue over the forecast period, resulting in the expansion of the automotive coil spring market value.

Value Chain Analysis

According to ot the reports, the global automotive coil spring market is segmented on the basis of OEM, aftermarket, and regions. The global market has been divided into two segments based on OEM: commercial vehicles and passenger vehicles. In 2019, the passenger car category accounted for a sizable portion of the automotive coil spring market. It is expected to retain its supremacy during the projected period. SUV and MPV sectors are expected to be the most important sub-segments of the automotive coil spring market, owing to the increasing use of shock absorbers or struts in place of conventional parabolic springs in a large number of SUVs and MPVs to enhance handling and comfort.

The passenger vehicle sector led the market in terms of aftermarket; however, the commercial vehicle segment is expected to grow over the forecast period due to increased penetration of coil springs in commercial vehicles. Coil springs have a shorter life in commercial vehicles because they carry greater weights and are operated over difficult terrain. As a result, demand for coil springs in the aftermarket rises.
