Increasing Adoption of Hollow Automotive Drive Shafts to Create New Opportunities for Market Players: Persistence Market Research

Published On : Jul 28, 2022

The global automotive drive shaft market is estimated to progress at a value CAGR of 4.9% and reach a market valuation of nearly US$ 54 Bn by the end of 2032.

The drive shaft of an automobile is a motorized component that is used to transfer torque from one end of the vehicle to the other, such as from the engine to the wheels. A drive shaft for an automobile is comprised of steel, aluminum, and carbon fiber. Because it is strong and light, aluminum is preferred since it enables the drive shafts to be balanced. As a result, the spinning speed is increased, and the car's overall weight is decreased.

Drive shafts made of aluminum lighten the total weight of the car and reduce fuel consumption. As a result, it is anticipated that during the projection period (2022-2032), these general characteristics will drive overall automotive drive shaft market expansion.

Key Takeaways from Market Study

  • By product type, solid drive shafts are projected to account for a market share of more than 54% by 2032.
  • The rear drive shaft segment is expected to hold the largest market share of more than 60%, under the position segment.
  • By vehicle type, passenger cars are estimated to create an absolute $ opportunity of US$ 10.4 Bn by 2032.
  • By region, East Asia is projected to account for the largest share in the global market (38% market share by 2032).
  • China and the U.S. are projected to register an absolute $ opportunity of more than US$ 9 Bn, collectively, from 2022 to 2032.

“Expansion of the automotive drive shaft market is predicted to be positively impacted by consistently rising investments in the automotive sector in North America and Europe, despite the slowdown in car output,” says a Persistence Market Research analyst.
