These are easily replaceable that makes it convenient for consumers to procure the fastener that augments aftermarket growth and boosts automotive fastener market.
Increased technological advancements for manufacturing lightweight and high durability products will drive automotive fasteners market. Government regulations for light weight vehicles shall support its use. Recent processes such as 3-D printing has made it easy to design and fabricate with complex geometry requirements. Manufacturers are drifting from standard to customized parts that has given positive outlook to automotive fastener market.
Automobile fasteners are mechanical components employed in vehicles to join two or more parts together. These help in avoiding wobbling, leakage and enabling transmission of load from on body part to another. It is available in various shapes, colours and finishes to meet the requirements of end users. These are fabricated from various materials such as iron, brass and nickel each having their unique characteristics. Their quality and strength depend on integrity of the joint required in a joint.
Major restriction for automotive fastener market is emergence of alternatives such as clinching and welding in auto parts. Variation in automobiles sales with fluctuating economies may challenge its growth in near future. But its easy availability and growing OEMs and aftermarket sales service shall neutralize its affect in longer run.
Automotive fastener is manufactured using various materials including, iron, brass, aluminium, nickel, stainless steel and plastic. Stainless steel holds major share owing to its corrosion resistance property that enhances the durability and life of parts. Further, these are readily available and have better aesthetic appearance as compared to others. Iron has substantial share and used in various parts including flywheels and coupling joints owing to its high strength properties. Plastic based product is used for interiors and components namely head lamps and dash boards.
Based on the characteristics, automotive fasteners are available in removable, semi-permanent and permanent types. Semi-permanent will be the fastest growing segment due to its wide usage in various components and forms major contribution for after sales. Permanent has substantial share owing to its use on chassis for fastening the components.
The product is coated with passivated, cadmium and dry film lube. Coating on the products is done to enhance corrosion resistance property of products. These are further classified into threaded and non-threaded. Threaded has major share owing to its utilization in most of the automobile parts. Non-threaded are majorly used for inner body parts.
Automotive fastener is used in all the passenger cars, Light Commercial Vehicles (LCV), Heavy Commercial Vehicles (HCV). Passenger cars have major share with growth in demand of personal cars and private cabs. LCV and HCV have moderate contribution and expected to depict healthy growth with rise in industrial sector and strengthening transportation sector.
With respect to distribution channel, automotive fastener market is segmented into OEMs and aftermarket. OEMs have major share owing to their strategic tie ups with automobile manufacturers. These are manufacturing customized components to retain their share. Aftermarket has moderate share and expected to grow with rise is after sales service centres.
Europe, led by Germany has substantial share in automotive fasteners market with well-established and flourishing automobile industry hosting big players namely Audi and Volkswagen. Asia Pacific has significant share owing to growing number of automobile manufacturers and demand of automobiles.
North America automotive fasteners market has a substantial share due to presence of OEMs and after sales centres that cater to local as well as overseas demand. Further, presence of key manufacturing companies including, Fords and General Motors has enhanced the product demand in the region. Middle East & Africa has nascent share and anticipated to show moderate growth with rise in income level and demand for automobiles.
Automotive fastener market is fragmented with the presence of substantial number of regional players. Some of the key players include Permanent Technologies, Shamrock International, Phillips Screw Company, Westfield, Atotech Deutschland, Shanghai Tianbao, Stanley Engineering Jiangsu Xing Chang Jiang International, Acument Global Technologies, NIFCO and BUlten.
Companies are investing heavily in research & development activities for new product innovation in automotive fastener market. For instance, in April 2017, Acument global technologies launched a product named ‘TechiClean’ that provides better finish and cleanliness level as compared to conventional types.
