Automotive Connecting Rod Market Synopsis:


Automotive connecting rod market has seen remarkable growth in the global market and it is observed that its demand in the future is expected to grow with the CAGR of ~4%.
Automotive Connecting Rods are rods that are used for connecting the piston to the crank or crankshaft in a reciprocating piston engine. The automotive connecting rods have to pass quality checks before their supply to clients.


The use of advanced materials such as fracture-split forged steel leads to an increase in the life of connecting rods. The developments for increasing the efficiency and strength of connecting rods is showing significant opportunities for new product development. The connecting rod is a key engine component that affects the weight of the crank train. Therefore measures must be taken for reducing their weight and improving the mechanical efficiency of the engine. As the connecting rods do not require regular replacements, they help in reducing the overall maintenance cost of the automotive. The other factors contributing in the growth of the market are the boom in the automotive industry, the increased use of advanced coating, the use of carbon fiber connecting rods in racing cars, and the increase in demand for internal combustion engines.


The global automotive connecting rods market is expected to experience significant growth opportunities with the assembly of carbon fiber connecting rods in racing cars. The rise in demand for sports cars is increasing the use of carbon fiber connecting rods for making the cars lighter and stronger.


The market is witnessing challenges with the need for engine downsizing that is reducing the size of the engine and simultaneously delivering power equivalent to the larger engine by adding devices, such as a turbocharger, supercharger or by integrating direct fuel injection technology. Engine downsizing helps improve the fuel efficiency of vehicle and reducing the overall carbon emission.
