Automotive Engine Cradle Market: Introduction
Engine Cradle is structural component, sub frame of an automobile that uses a separate/discrete structure within a large body-on-frame or unit body to carry the engine. The sub frame is welded and/or bolted to the automobile. When bolted, it is sometimes equipped with rubber bushings or springs to dampen vibration. Automotive engine cradle is employed for support of automotive components and systems, such as suspension, transmission and engine. The engine cradle takes the pressure off the engine mounts and spread it through the cradle making it harder to break the mounts off the block.
Furthermore, important performance measures for the structure of an engine cradle includes durability, natural frequency and stiffness with low weight for operational optimization. The material used for the manufacturing of engine cradle is of crucial importance for its operations. The automotive engine cradle are made of such a material which have appropriate mechanical strength to bear the weight of engine and provide a rigid and stable platform for the suspension to have an efficient control over the vehicle. The materials generally used for the manufacturing of engine cradle includes metallic as well as nonmetallic materials, nonmetallic materials includes fibre and other composites, whereas metallic materials include steel, aluminum, magnesium etc.
Automotive Engine Cradle Market: Dynamics
The main factor behind the growth of the automotive engine cradle market is the production and expansion in the automobile sector across the globe. It is the R&D which is carried out on automotive engine cradle material to optimize its strength as well as decrease the weight of the vehicle increasing its efficiency in the recent years. Also, the automobile manufacturers are more focused towards vehicular weight reduction without compromising with its quality and work expected to increase the demand for the automotive engine cradle of lighter materials. Apart from this, the Automotive Engine Cradle is an integral structure of all automobile, and hence, the development of automobile sector will also add up to the growth of the global Automotive Engine Cradle market.
However, the high cost of the automotive engine cradle coupled with low replacement may restraint to the sale of automotive engine cradle market. Nevertheless, numerous players are increasingly investing in research and development focusing on improving its design as well as decreasing its weight. However, the ongoing trend of using better equipment equipped with better technology to get better results will increase the demand for automotive engine cradle during the forecast period.
