Market Overview:

The global automotive drive axle market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period 2018-2030. The market growth can be attributed to the increasing demand for passenger vehicles and commercial vehicles across the globe. In terms of type, the less than or equal to 3 MT segment is expected to dominate the global automotive drive axle market during the forecast period owing to its low cost and easy installation. However, in terms of growth, the greater than or equal to 14 MT segment is projected to register highest CAGR during 2018-2030.

Global Automotive Drive Axle Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

The automotive drive axle is a component of the drivetrain that transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It consists of a driveshaft and one or more axles, and is typically enclosed in a housing called an axle housing. The axle housing contains gear sets that increase or decrease the speed of the driveshaft according to the needs of the vehicle. The automotive drive axle is important for transmitting power from the engine to the wheels, allowing vehicles to move forwards or backwards.

Less than or equal to3 MT:

The less than or equal to3 MT (LSM Tyre) market is expected to grow at a significant pace owing to the increasing demand for automobiles across the globe. The LSM tire has three main components, namely ply, cord and rib. As compared to normal tires which have steel belts running around the tire, LSM tires are made up of different materials such as glass fiber reinforced plastic (GRP), natural rubber and polyester resin.

3-14 MT:

3-14 MT is a type of medium-speed engine oil, which finds its major application in automotive drive axle. It has high viscosity index and low Sulfur content as compared to other conventional motor oils. The product also provides better protection against wear and tear along with improved performance, longer drain intervals between the changeovers and reduced maintenance costs due to fewer lubricant changes.

Application Insights:

Passenger vehicles accounted for the largest revenue share in 2016 and is anticipated to maintain its dominance over the forecast period. The segment is driven by increasing demand for passenger cars from developing countries such as China, India, Brazil and Mexico. Moreover, stringent government regulations regarding reduction in vehicular emissions are expected to drive demand for automotive drive axle across all applications during the forecast period.

The application of truck axles includes medium-duty commercial vehicles (less than or equal to3 tons) and heavy-duty commercial vehicles (greater than or equal to14 tons). Demand for these products has been growing steadily owing to their increased use in long-distance transport operations where durability and load capacity are key factors determining product selection. In addition, growth of various end-use industries including mining, construction materials handling along with rapid urbanization have ledto an increase in number of trucks on roads which further boosts market growth.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific accounted for the largest market share in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The region is home to some of the major automotive manufacturing hubs, such as China, Japan, India and South Korea. Increasing demand for automobiles across these countries on account of rising disposable income coupled with government initiatives encouraging domestic vehicle production are likely to have a positive impact on industry growth.

Europe accounted for a significant share in terms of revenue owing to stringent emission norms implemented by various governments across European countries that are anticipated to force manufacturers operating within Europe's borders adopt more efficient drive axle technologies than those currently being used by them at their current production capacities which would result in higher unit shipments thereby positively influencing industry growth over the next eight years.

The North American regional market was dominated by U.S., which held around 54% market share owing tp high consumer preference towards vehicles equipped with advanced safety features such as airbags and anti-lock braking systems (ABS).

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for lightweight vehicles: The automotive drive axle market is expected to benefit from the increasing demand for lightweight vehicles. This is because the use of a lighter drive axle can result in improved fuel efficiency and performance of the vehicle.
  • Growing popularity of electric and hybrid vehicles: The global market for electric and hybrid vehicles is growing at a rapid pace, which is likely to boost the demand for automotive drive axles in the coming years.
  • Rising disposable income levels: A rise in disposable income levels across emerging economies has led to an increase in consumer spending on automobiles, thereby boosting the demand for automotive drive axles globally.
  • Technological advancements: The development of new technologies such as all-wheel-drive systems has led to an increase in adoption rates of advanced axle technologies, thereby propelling growth prospects for this market over the forecast period. 5) Stringent emission norms: Stringent emission norms are being implemented by various governments around the world with a view to reduce environmental pollution levels from automobiles exhausts; this is likely to spur growth prospects for automotive drive axles over
