Automotive Tow Bar Market in terms of value is estimated to register 4.39% CAGR during the forecast period.
A tow bar is a device attached to the chassis of a vehicle for towing. It may be in the form of a tow ball to allow swiveling and articulation of a trailer, or a tow pin, or a tow hook with a trailer loop. The tow bar is often used for large or agricultural vehicles where slack in the pivot pin allows similar movements. There are usually four types of tow bars, such as detachable, fixed, swiveling, and others used in automotive.
Industry players either manufacture or assemble to transform the raw materials and components into automotive tow bars, which get delivered to the end-users. Manufacturers initiate the process by designing the solutions, based on the requirements of the process. At this stage, manufacturers often work in close coordination with the clients to ensure their requirements and working conditions are met. This stage is crucial, where most of the time, the product is custom made and is impacted by the specific need of the client in terms of size, specifications, and the materials being used. The specifications are communicated to the raw material and component suppliers, who, in turn, make the required materials and components available to automotive tow bar manufacturers.
