Moreover, different kinds of camshaft followers are found in vehicles that include flat faced followers, mushroom followers, roller followers, knife edge followers to name a few
Automotive Camshaft Followers Market: Dynamics
Growing pressure on automotive manufacturers by regulating authorities such as Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to reduce emission levels in a vehicle is driving technological advancements in engine technologies. For instance, regulations/standard driving modernizations in engine management systems are expected to support the market growth for the forecast period. In addition, from a macro-economic point of view, factors such as increasing disposable income, rising standard of living & decreasing tax rates, mainly in developing nations, are anticipated to surge vehicle sales that eventually will lead to increase in sales of automotive camshaft followers.
Apart from this, some of the dynamics such as uncertainty being experienced by some countries coupled with prevailing economic fluctuations could restraint the growth of the market. Moreover, high cost of technology may also act as a factor restraining the adoption of high cost products among end-users. On contrary, investment in product technology development is expected to be a major trend prevailing in the automotive camshaft followers market over the forecast period. Nowadays, the camshaft followers are made from a carbo-nitrided 52100 or 4130 steel to provide better wear resistance that is equivalent to diamond-like coatings that helps to reduce the cost of the components.
