The global piston pin market size is projected to reach USD 314 million by 2025, from an estimated USD 259 million in 2020, at a CAGR of 4.0%. The base year for the report is 2019, and the forecast period is from 2020 to 2025. Substantial production and sales volumes of ICE vehicles across the world will boost the demand for piston pin during the forecast period.
According to industry experts, electric vehicles are the future of the automotive industry, ICE vehicles are still in focus with significant production and sales, especially in developing countries such as India and the majority of the Middle East & African countries. Also, OEMs and Tier I suppliers have been focusing on designing and developing long-lasting piston pins that can sustain or withstand all the loading or stresses applied and the wear and tear involved during engine operations. Thus, advancements in metallurgy and material science fields might help the piston pin market.
The piston pin market is dominated by players such as Burgess Norton (US), Tenneco (US), MAHLE (Germany), Art Metal (Japan), and Rheinmetall Corporation (Germany). These companies developed new products, adopted expansion strategies, and undertook collaborations, partnerships, and mergers & acquisitions to gain traction in this high-growth piston pin market.
