Automotive drive shafts are mechanical component assembled from aluminium, steel, and carbon fibre.
It curtails the overall burden of the vehicle with more speed and low fuel expenditure, by conducting power from the engine to the
wheels. Growing tendency of four wheeler vehicles with increased aspiration for efficient and comfortable drive pose a huge demand
for automotive drive shafts market. Automotive Drive Shaft Market is expected to garner a stable valuation from 2016 to 2024.Aluminum
drive shafts are also more equitable and produces more revolving speed. Steel drive shafts are very bulky and requires a lot of
horsepower to transmit torque and rotate. It makes the overall weight of the vehicle very heavy, requiring more fuel to run.
Global Automotive Drive Shafts Market: Segmentation
A very appropriate segmentation is proposed for Automotive Drive Shafts Market. By type. This market
is been segmented into hotchkiss drive shafts, flexible drive shafts and torque tube drive shafts.Hotchkiss drive shafts are the most
favoured form of shafts used for rear axle suspension and are commonly found in heavy commercial vehicles and cars. Various features
are of flexible drive shaft are that they have high endurance and allows non stoping rotation in vehicles at accurate high speed.
Torque tube drive shaft are found in heavy commercial vehicles with front engine and rear drive. Torque tube drive shaft types are
typically bulky and generates greater up sprung weight on the vehicle.The automotive drive shafts can also be judged based on their
position which in turn depends on whether the vehicle is Front Wheel Drive (FWD) or Rear Wheel Drive (RWD).
Front Wheel Drive vehicles are more fuel adaptive and light weighted making the vehicle aerodynamic,
hence the production use is higher. In recent decade, all the passenger cars and light commercial vehicles are FWD and their drive
shafts are implanted likewise. This arrangement also protects the vehicles in case of accidents.
Global Automotive Drive Shafts Market: Drivers and Restraints
research report also deliberates the demand inducing and demand constrainingaspects. The main drivers have been identified to be the
rise in production of vehicles and consideration of drive shafts whose restoration is supported by an efficient after sales services
sector. APAC is the largest producer of automotive and is likely to maintain its control over forecast period. In late years
the APAC region has endorsedconspicuousachievement in terms of its GDP and development of its automobile and automotive parts
industry. India, Singapore, South Korea, and Thailand, among other countries in APAC have high growth potential. Use of electric
vehicles however, is awaited to curtail the obligtion for drive shafts since they run on battery which are charged by electric power.
This hinders the growth of this market.
