Global Automotive Shock Absorbers Market Report Overview
Automotive shock absorbers are mechanical or hydraulic devices designed to absorb damp shock impulses of vehicles in the global market. Automotive shock absorbers provide not only driving comfort, but also perfect driving behavior and good controllability.
In this report, we have considered automotive shock absorbers installed in vehicles and two wheelers only. Industrial automotive shock absorbers have not been considered under the scope of research. Since the last couple of years, hydraulic automotive shock absorbers are being used in most of the vehicle types as they are economical. Hydraulic shocks are only filled with hydraulic oil and the oil acts an excellent damping agent in the whole system. However, the continuous working of hydraulic automotive shock absorbers may create noise or oil leakage problems, which may affect the overall performance of the vehicles and two wheelers. Therefore, gas-filled automotive shock absorbers are a potential replacement option in the market as they are more efficient than hydraulic automotive shock absorbers. In this automotive shock absorbers report, we have crunched separate markets for twin tube automotive shock absorbers and mono-tube automotive shock absorbers. For instance, under the vehicle type segment, the automotive shock absorbers market for twin tube and mono-tube has been separately scrutinized for OEM and aftermarket as well as for the vehicle type segment, such as passenger cars, LCVs, HCVs and two wheelers.
