Most of the suspension systems that are still used are passive in nature, which do not require an external source of energy/actuation to function. But, emphasis on better ride control performance, smooth and safe ride with minimal or no vibrations to be felt by the driver have been changing the overall dynamics of the automotive suspension systems market. The increasing vehicle production due to the increasing demand for automobiles has also been one of the drivers for these system. For instance, introduction of electromagnetic suspension systems that are fully active by functionality has led to vehicles with zero vibrations and the best quality ride, control, and performance. The only hindrance with the usage of these active suspension systems is its complexity, reliability, and cost. As the automobile suspension system technologies across the world have become more and more sophisticated, providing them at affordable costs has also become very critical, thus making these systems an essential component and feature in any vehicle today. Stringent emission regulations and fuel efficiency standards enforced by legislative bodies in different regions have forced automotive manufacturers to look for different solutions to achieve the same. Thus, the semi-active/active systems were developed, which are lighter in weight, smaller in size, and high on performance, driving the demand for advanced automotive suspension systems.

This report covers the automotive suspension systems market in terms of volume (‘000 units) and value ($million) from 2011 to 2018. The market is segmented on the basis of vehicle type (passenger cars, LCVs, and HCVs), type (passive and semi-active /active systems), damping type (hydraulic and electromagnetic) and geography (Asia-Pacific, Europe, North America, and the Rest of the World). The types of system and vehicle are covered for the key countries considered in each region; whereas the  damping types segment covers only regional markets.

Active Suspension: Future of Automobile Suspension Systems

Active suspension system controls the vertical movement of the wheels through an on-board system, which automatically adjusts the suspension depending upon the road surface. The system acts as a safety feature, which does not allow the vehicle to roll in many driving conditions including cornering, accelerating, and braking. The suspension systems in passenger cars and light commercial vehicles are being developed and are changing at a rapid pace due to the advancement in technologies, which have been improving the levels of comfort and road handling. In today’s era of automations and electronics, advanced system, such as active system, act as an important technology differentiator between vehicles. Also, it is one of the primary features that the automobile OEMs concentrate to make their vehicles the best.

The automotive suspension systems market is estimated to reach $66.2 billion by 2018, with a projected CAGR of 5.72%, indicating the potential growth in the automotive industry

The automotive industry has been constantly developing due to changing buyer preferences, technological advancements, growing urbanization rate, growing demand for fuel economy, and environmental concerns. These factors have triggered the automobile industry to grow at a constant pace over the course of time. As vehicles evolved from using leaf/coil springs in the early 90’s to the current use of electromagnetic systems, the technology related to suspension systems has been growing rapidly, providing better ride quality and road holding capability to the vehicle. The purpose of these systems is to contribute to the vehicle's handling and braking for safe and comfortable driving, keeping the occupants comfortable and reasonably well isolated from road noise, bumps, and vibrations. Another important function of suspensions is to keep the vehicle’s wheel in contact with the road surface as the road or ground forces acting on the vehicle do so through the contact patches of the tires. As a result, these systems have become a very critical part of automobiles due to their functionality.

The key factors responsible for driving the demand for suspension systems are the increasing vehicle production levels and their growing demand mainly in the BRICS nations, growing importance for ride control performance in vehicles, and increasing concern towards emissions and fuel economy standards. The fuel efficiency of a vehicle depends on the weight of the systems equipped in the vehicle. Also, depending upon the vehicle class and the type of systems employed, the size of these suspension systems also change. Suspension systems, which are high in performance and at the same time are lightweight with smaller packaging, are the future of the industry.

The automotive suspension systems market is estimated to be led by Asia-Pacific, mainly due to the growing vehicle production levels in the countries of China and India. The top industry manufacturers have set up their plants in these countries in order to meet the growing demand. The region is expected to continue its reign in the global market in the next five years as well. The present day consumers are concerned about the comfort levels and safety of the vehicle. The suspension systems form a very essential component in the vehicle, which help in protecting the vehicle chassis, provide comfort and safety to the passengers, and at the same time also help in reducing vehicle emissions. Hence, the automobile manufacturers are relying on high performance and high efficiency systems to meet the customer expectations. The automotive industry in Europe and North America is still recuperating from the economic turmoil of 2009. The North American automotive industry is now growing with the help of significant government grants and investments. The vehicle production in the region witnessed an annual growth of 4.3% in 2013; while Europe is experiencing a slow but steady growth and is expected to become stable in the coming years. By 2018, the North American region would replace Europe and push it to the third position due to the growing vehicle production, mainly light duty vehicles in the U.S. and Mexico.

The key players in the automotive suspension systems market are identified as KYB Co., Ltd. (Japan), ZF Group (Germany), Tenneco Inc. (U.S.), Show Corp. (Japan), Magneti Marelli S.P.A (Italy), Benteler Group (Austria), Continental Corp. (Germany), WABCO (Belgium), Mando Corp. (South Korea), Schaeffler AG (Germany), TRW Automotive Holdings Corp. (U.S.), and BWI Group (China). These companies collectively account for a major share of the suspension systems market. The top players have been adopting every possible strategy to acquire new customers and at the same time increase the demand for their products. The key strategies adopted by the players are the development of newer products and expansion in terms of production capacity and geographical presence in order to capitalize on the available opportunities.

This report covers the automotive suspension systems market based on vehicle type (passenger cars, LCVs, and HCVs), suspension systems type (passive and semi-active/active), damping type (hydraulic and electromagnetic), and geography (Asia-Pacific, Europe, North America, and the Rest of the World (ROW)). All the market estimates given are in terms of volume (‘000 Units) and value ($million).
