Automotive Drive Shaft Market Dynamic:

Automotive Drive Shaft is also known for the propeller shaft which is a mechanical component used to transmit torque to the other components of a driven train, which is not directly connected to the drive component because of distance problems. Automotive Drive Shaft is subjected to many forces such as torsion and shear forces due to the torque. The main benefit of the drive shaft is that it is less probable to get jammed. The use of a drive shaft depends on the vehicle type, and drive type. Many companies are focusing on research and development on the driveshaft to reduce the weight which affects fuel efficiency.

Segment Analysis:

By design type, this market is split into a hollow shaft, solid shaft. Hollow drive shafts are anticipated to capture the global market owing to Flexibility and improvised performance compared to the solid shaft, also it helps in reducing the weight of the vehicle. However, the solid driveshafts in long wheelbase vehicles offer superior performance over the hollow driveshafts, as the hollow shafts have lower buckling resistance compared to solid shafts Based on the material, the global automotive drive shaft market is segmented into aluminum, composite materials, and carbon fiber. The aluminum material segment is expected to high demand because it helps to decrease inertia and vibration damping. The global automotive drive shaft market is anticipated to boom in the Asia Pacific region due to emerging economies and increasing investment in the automobile industry countries like China, India, and Japan.

Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:

  • Rapid expansion of the automotive industry across globe.

  • fluctuation in the prices of raw materials
