MacPherson Strut segment is likely to dominate the market in near future

In 2019, the MacPherson Strut segment accounted for over 35% share in four-wheeler suspensions market. The shock absorber and coil spring are combined in a single unit in MacPherson suspension. It has a simple construction and requires less components for the production that reduces the maintenance requirement. These suspensions have lower weights than other types of suspension systems. Additionally, these are economical and do not take much room thereby offering more space for passengers.
 

Independent suspension to bank upon superior traction in multiple terrains

Independent automotive suspension market will capture majority revenue share during the forecast timespan owing to its performance in on and off-road conditions. In this type of suspension, each wheel acts as a separate suspension unit and movement of one wheel is not dependent on the other. Each wheel in this suspension offers a different reaction to the road conditions. These systems offer effective wheel bonding, soft springing action and enhanced steering geometry. However, complex construction and high repair & rework costs associated with these suspensions may restrict their penetration.
 

OEM to lead the industry size

OEM dominated over 80% automotive suspension market share in 2019 on account of its installation in all the vehicles to ensure smooth riding experience. The OEM parts are generally preferred by consumers owing to their high quality and long service life. These parts usually come with manufacturer’s warranty. However, automotive suspension parts & components provided through OEM distribution channels are expensive than those offered through aftermarket.
 

Better riding experience to support adoption of advanced suspensions

Advanced technology segment comprises of semi-active and active suspension systems. In active suspension systems, vertical movement of wheels is controlled by a control unit which gains input from sensors. These suspension systems sense changes in the road surfaces and feed this information to electronic control unit and outlaying components. The components act accordingly by adjusting shock stiffness, spring rate, etc. The systems help in eliminating pitch variation and body roll in various driving situations such as accelerating, cornering and braking.
 

Two-wheeler suspensions to gain significant traction

Two-wheeler segment will observe growth of over 8% in the automotive suspension market through 2026 led by increasing adoption of motorcycles in emerging and developed nations. Increasing population, high disposable incomes and changing consumer dynamics will generate huge demand for two-wheelers during the forecast time span. Many leading players in the two-wheeler industry are implementing targeted product launch strategy in search of additional bottom line. Increasing competition in conjunction with rising affordability of customers will boost two-wheeler production in upcoming years thereby encouraging the industry growth.
