Automotive Suspension System Market Dynamics


  • Increased safety regulations

  • Introduction of innovative suspension systems

  • Rising demand for commercial and passenger vehicles

COVID-19 has changed the way we live and travel in cities, as well as in society as a whole. It is believed that a new way of life would arise. Governments all across the world have required that public transit and ride-sharing firms limit the number of passengers per car, citing social separation as the strongest line of defense against COVID-19. People appear hesitant to use public transportation as their reliance on personal mobility continues to rise as nations 'unlock,' and businesses reopen in various countries. The necessity for personal mobility is anticipated to rise as customers seek to ensure their own safety. Although other external causes drove this increase in the past, as the demand for social separation and preventative measures grows, these numbers will continue to rise. The automotive suspension system market is mainly reliant on the manufacturing and sale of automobiles. As a result, fluctuations in automotive demand have an impact on the market. The market for automotive suspension systems is fueled by rising demand for sedans, SUVs, and off-road vehicles. To reduce the high cost of production of these systems, the Chinese and Indian governments are investing in the aftermarket through direct engagement with tier 1 suppliers. The presence of automotive suspension manufacturers in the aftermarket, such as ZF Friedrichshafen AG and Dorman Products, is projected to boost demand for advanced suspension systems in the aftermarket. Furthermore, the Automotive Suspension System Market is expected to be driven by the European Union's reviving automotive industry. Sales were held back by limited inventory and fewer incentives during the pandemic but the relaxation in the lockdown is expected to boost the automotive market growth. Thus, the rising demand for commercial and passenger vehicles is expected to drive the growth of the global automatic suspension system market during the forecast period.


  • Lack of standardization

Regulation's burdens, which affect both new and old products, must be taken into account by all businesses. Government rules, similar to those in any other sector, restrict the manufacturing of automobiles by limiting the ingenuity of engineers and designers. These requirements are primarily intended to improve driver and passenger safety (both on the road and against theft) and vehicle environmental effects. Every country (or region) has its own set of rules and regulations. This means that automakers must change their manufacturing standards to sell their vehicles in various markets throughout the world. Manufacturers must adjust their investments in response to changes in consumer preferences or the implementation of new regulations, making the market volatile for them. As component providers are reliant on demand from tier 1 suppliers, this has a direct influence. As a result of the absence of standardization, it is difficult for suspension system manufacturers to meet the varying architecture specifications of different vehicle types. Thus, the lack of standardization is projected to restrict the growth of the global automatic suspension system market to a certain extent during the forecast period.


  • Demand for a regenerative suspension system for electric and hybrid vehicles

  • Advancements in lightweight components

Modern automobiles require advanced materials to improve fuel economy while retaining safety and performance. Lightweight materials have a lot of potential for improving vehicle efficiency as it requires less energy to accelerate a lighter item than a heavy one. A 10% reduction in vehicle weight might result in a 6% to 8% increase in fuel economy. By replacing cast iron and traditional steel components with lightweight materials, including high-strength steel, magnesium (Mg) alloys, aluminum (Al) alloys, carbon fiber, and polymer composites, a vehicle's body and chassis can be reduced by up to 50%, lowering its fuel consumption. Engineers are progressively using lightweight materials for purposes such as the body, chassis, interior, power train, and under the hood. OEMs and suppliers are focusing on developing multi-material cars using aluminum, carbon-fiber composites, high-strength steel, magnesium, titanium, and various types of foam, plastic, and rubber. Cars can carry more complex pollution control systems, safety devices, and integrated electrical systems without adding to the vehicle's total weight by adopting lightweight structural materials. While lightweight materials can be used in any vehicle, they are particularly crucial in hybrid electric, plug-in hybrid electric, and electric vehicles. The use of lightweight materials in these vehicles can help offset the weight of power components like batteries and electric motors, enhancing efficiency and extending the range of these vehicles. Thus, the advancements in lightweight components are expected to present lucrative growth opportunities for the players in the global automatic suspension system market.


  • High cost of suspension systems and installation in aftermarket

In a suspension system, springs, shock absorbers/struts, and linkages (such as ball joints) connect a vehicle to its wheels. Despite bumps or other road abnormalities, the suspension keeps the wheels in proper contact/friction with the ground, resulting in a smooth ride. Investing in a high-quality suspension system provides the driver and passengers with more comfort and a better driving experience. The use of advanced technologies in the suspension system increases the cost of the vehicles. The conventional suspension system is complex and involves more wear and tear. In contrast, the advanced suspension system uses advanced fluids, such as rheological fluid, and features newer technologies, such as electric-controlled suspension systems and magic body control systems.
