Automotive Propeller Shaft Market Scenario:


The global automotive propeller shaft market is estimated to witness a 8.50% CAGR during the forecast period.


The factors that are responsible for the growth of automotive propeller shaft market are technology innovation in the materials, growth in the automotive industry, and increase in the sales of the new vehicle. The innovation in technology in the automotive propeller shafts, is expected to drive the market in future. Innovation such as light weight propeller shaft, have emerged in order to reduce the overall weight of the vehicle. The increase in sales of new vehicle will result in growing use of propeller shaft in the vehicle in order to drive the vehicle. It is an important component of the vehicle because it provide torque and allows the movement of the vehicle.


Automotive propeller shaft is a mechanical component that is used to drive the wheels and transmitting torque. The propeller shaft is usually used to connect other components of the drive train that cannot be connected directly due to far distance between the two components. The drive shaft incorporates one or more universal joints, jaw coupling, and sometimes prismatic joint. A longitudinal shaft is used to deliver power from the engine to other side of the vehicle before moving towards the wheels. It transfer the power from the engine to the wheels with the help of drive shaft. It is one of the main components of the wheel because it is responsible for driving the vehicle. Propeller shaft helps decide the performance factor of the vehicle, due to which the development of the propeller shaft shall be done very carefully. Many automotive manufacturers are investing heavily in the research and development so as to innovate their product line. The major focus of many manufacturers is to develop light weight shaft to reduce the overall weight of the vehicle, which will result in improved fuel efficiency. Thus the reduction in the overall weight of the vehicle will drive the market in future.
