Automotive Suspension Market

Market Leader - Automotive Suspension Market

The global automotive suspension market is expected to grow from USD 42.9 billion in 2021 and is projected to reach USD 50.7 billion in 2026, at a CAGR of 3.4% during the forecast period. Automotive suspension plays a key role in the efficient and smooth functioning of any vehicle. At present, there are different types of suspension architecture such as MacPherson, Torsion Beam, Double Wishbone, MultiLink, Leaf Spring, and Air Suspension. The selection of each architecture varies in vehicle depending upon factors such as ride control requirement, availability of space, the segment of the vehicle, and cost of the suspension system.

Automotive OEMs are investing in R&D activities to introduce innovative suspension systems to enhance ride comfort. For example, in August 2020, ZF Friedrichshafen designed air suspension with ECAS technology to address issues such as higher fuel consumption, decreased rider comfort, and compromised passenger safety and vehicular instability. The market for suspension systems is mainly driven by the increasing demand for luxury vehicles, especially passenger cars, and the increasing preference of buyers for a comfortable ride and smooth operation of the vehicle. Asia Pacific is expected to be the leading market for suspension systems, owing to the increasing vehicle production in countries such as China, Japan, and India.
