Automotive Plain Carbon ERW Tubes Market Overview

The Automotive Plain Carbon ERW Tubes Market is projected to grow from USD 5.4 Billion in 2021 to USD 8.1 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) 4.2% during the forecast period (2023 - 2032).

The Global Automotive Plain Carbon ERW Tubes Market is expected to witness rapid growth during the forecast period. Asia-Pacific is witnessing one of the key markets for automotive plain carbon ERW tubes. The region is the largest market due to the presence of developing countries, such as China, India, and Japan. The growth of the automotive component manufacturing industry in Asia-Pacific is driven by the booming automobile manufacturing industry, primarily in countries, such as India, China, and Malaysia. The global automotive component manufacturers have, thus, established their production plants and distribution facilities in Asia-Pacific.

In 2018, Europe held the second-largest market share in the global automotive plain carbon ERW tubes market. the growing investment in research and development by regional market players, an increase in the sales of vehicles, and a large number of automotive component suppliers in this region. The European Automobile Manufacturers’ Association (ACEA), in 2017, stated that automobiles and related components exported by the region accounted for USD 142,725.1 Million. Major automotive plain carbon ERW tubes manufacturers are expanding their presence through increasing distribution channel and stockiest in this region, which further grows the demand for plain carbon ERW tubes, parts, and components from premium German OEMs, such as Audi, Mercedes, and BMW, is pushing global market players to enhance and develop their operational network in Europe.


The Global Automotive Plain Carbon ERW Tubes Market is segmented based on Application and Vehicle Type. By application, the Global Automotive Plain Carbon ERW Tubes Market is segmented into Frames, Suspension, Exhaust, and others. The frame segment held the largest market share in 2018. The tubes in automotive frame assemblies must be extremely rigid and strong to meet the payload capacity and withstand shocks, twists, stress, and vibrations, during vehicles driving on uneven road. Automotive component manufacturers are primarily developing vehicle chassis by using carbon-containing ERW tubes to meet the demand for fuel and payload efficiencies. Additionally, the frames are manufactured with the support of plain carbon ERW tubes. It is widely adopted for manufacturing seat frames, body frames, bumper frames, rear body frames, and headrest frames.

By Vehicle Type, the global automotive plain carbon ERW tubes market is segmented as a passenger car and commercial vehicle. Passenger cars widely use automotive plain carbon ERW tubes across steering linkages, steering column, shock absorber, propeller shaft, tie rod, and axel tube. A rise in demand for passenger vehicles due to the increased population and rising purchasing power are expected to increase the share of the passenger car segment. The need for passenger safety from individual users and the government norms are expected to drive the growth of this segment during the forecast period.
