Slip-in-Tube Drive Shaft Market: Introduction
Slip-in-Tube Drive Shaft is a component of the drive line, designed to allow liner movement of two components and transmitting of torque & rotation in a drive train. Slip-in-tube drive shaft works provides crash safety by absorbing energy in the event of a crash and thus, it is also known as collapsible drive shaft. Slip-in-tube drive shaft absorbs the linear movement of the vehicle, thereby making changes in the length of a driveshaft. Since it is an integral component of a drive line, the demand for slip-in-tube drive shaft is directly dependent on the growth of the automotive industry. The positive growth outlook for the automotive industry, particularly in developing countries, is expected to boost the growth of the slip-in-tube drive shaft market during the forecast period. Owing to its various benefits, such as increased efficiency, better noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) performance, reduced weight and improved crash energy management, slip-in-tube drive shafts are expected to witness robust growth over the forecast period and will outpace the growth of other propeller shafts, such as single piece and multi piece shafts.
