Sway Bar Market: Introduction
A sway bar is a part of vehicle suspension system that helps in reducing the body roll of the vehicle while fast cornering or during times of driving on rough roads, which leads to increased comfort while driving the vehicle. Sway bar links opposite left and right wheels together using short lever connected by a torsion spring. The sway bars are connected to the vehicle’s suspension via the stabilizer links.
The motive of the sway bar is to force both sides of the vehicle to raise or lower to equal heights in order to decrease the rolling of the vehicle on road bends. Previously vehicles didn’t come fitted with sway bars, but with time, most of the vehicles came fitted with sway bars. Some vehicles consist of just one sway bar whereas some vehicles come with both front and rear sway bars.
The sway bars that are currently used globally are called as active sway bars. Sway bars mainly provide two functions, first is the decrease in the body lean, second, is to adjust the handling of the vehicle. The sway bars are adjustable, most of them can be adjusted when the vehicle is stationary, whereas some sway bars can be adjusted even when the vehicle is in motion.
The sway bars are generally made of 4140 Chromoly Steel. The manufacturing process includes cutting the steel to the desired length. They are then heated for forging at 1600 degrees. Coining is used to flatten the side of the bar and then holes are punched where the end links are attached to connect it to the suspension. The bar is then moved to other presses to get the desire bends.

Sway Bar Market: Market Dynamics
Automotive industry being the prime user of sway bar, the increase in vehicle production and sales tends to enhance the demand for sway bars. All the vehicles that are on the road are fitted with one or two sway bars. Goods transportation, increase in construction activity, e-commerce, personal transport, etc. are resulting into the growth of the global sway bar market. Moreover the used car market is on the rise and most of these cars require various parts to be replaced. This leads to increase in instances of sway bars to be replaced.
The possibility of restraint in the growth of sway bars is minor. The decrease in the production of automobiles and the decrease in the demand in the aftermarket are currently the only foreseeable factors causing restraints in the sway bar market. The high price of active sway bar is also a restraint as it is three times costlier than the conventional sway bar and limited to luxury or premium vehicles.
Current market trends include the use of active sway bars, active sway bars can change stiffness as per the type of roads or surface that the vehicle is moving on. However, there are instances where the use of active sway bars is not beneficial. In such scenarios, Electronically-disconnecting sway bars are used. These temporarily stop the sway bars from working, to let the tires move freely.
