This report, from Stratview Research, studies the composite components market in the global automotive suspension over the period 2010 to 2021. The report provides detailed insights on the market dynamics to enable informed business decision making and growth strategy formulation based on the opportunities in the market.

The Global Automotive Composite Suspension Components Market: Highlights
Composite components in the automotive suspension industry include leaf springs, coil springs, stabilizer bar, drive shaft, and suspension arm. Composite components offer several benefits over steel components, such as lightweight, high durability, better vibration energy absorption, and excellent fatigue resistance. For example; composite leaf spring is five times more durable than that of similar sized steel leaf springs at just 1/7th the weight of a steel leaf spring.

The global automotive composite suspension components market is still at a nascent stage but possesses significant growth potential during the forecast period of 2016 to 2021. It is forecasted to grow at an impressive CAGR of 7.8% over the next five years. Organic growth of the automotive industry and increasing penetration of composite components in the suspension system to achieve stringent government regulations are major growth drivers of the market. 

Composite leaf springs are expected to remain the largest composites component type in the global automotive suspension market during the forecast period. Composite leaf springs are mainly used in the passenger cars and light commercial vehicles. Pick-ups, Vans, and SUVs are the major vehicle types that are using composite leaf springs either on transversal or on longitudinal position depending on requirement, vehicle design type, etc. All major OEMs are evaluating the use of composite leaf springs in their major Pick-up, VAN, and SUV models.

Compression molding is expected to remain the most dominant manufacturing process in the composite components in the global automotive suspension industry during the forecast period. High Pressure-Resin Transfer Molding (HP-RTM) is likely to experience the fastest growth for the same period, driven by shorter part cycle time.

Europe is expected to remain the largest market for composite components in the global automotive suspension industry over the next five years, driven by increasing use of composite leaf springs in light commercial vehicles. Asia-Pacific is a relatively small composite components market but is expected to experience the fastest growth for the same period.

The supply chain of this market comprises raw material suppliers, composite component manufacturers, OEMs, distributors, and end users. The global composite suspension components market is highly consolidated with a dozen players populated worldwide. The key composite component manufacturers for suspension system are Liteflex LLC, IFC Composite, ACPT Inc, and Benteler-SGL. New product development, capacity expansion and process optimization are the key strategies adopted by the major players to gain competitive edge in the market.
