Market Scenario:

An axle is a central shaft of a rotating wheel or gear assembly, used ubiquitously in automotive and industries with rotating mechanisms. The automotive axle is the central shaft between two wheels, which helps the wheel rotate in an aligned way.

Market Dynamics:

Growth Of Automotive Industries Is The Prime Driver Of Market Demand

Automotive axle being an integral part of wheeled vehicle assembly, the growth of automotive industry directly is a direct driver for the demand for automotive axle market. Growing demand for hybrid and electric vehicles coupled with an increase in off-road vehicles is another driver of the market. Developments of advanced materials and adoption of front-wheel drive automobiles, which combine the transmission and axle into a single unit, is a stable driver of the market.


To generate a better assessment of the market potential, the global automotive axle market is segmented into type, material, propeller shaft type and regions.

Based on the type, the market is bisected into the front axle and rear axle.

Based on material, the market is segmented into alloy, and carbon fiber.

Based on propeller shaft type, the market is segmented into the single, and multi-piece.

Based on regions, the market is segregated into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa.

Advancement Of Technology Is A Strong Driver For Adoption Of Advanced Systems

Integration of smart and advanced gearing technology is resulting in faster market adoption owing to better steering and handling control and ultimately the performance of the vehicle. The growth of heavy trucking is resulting in a focus on improving power and drivetrain systems encompassing components such as clutch, transmission, and propeller shaft and rear axle. The growth of heavy trucking is driving the growth of lift axle, which can be mechanically raised or lowered to increase the weight capacity and to distribute the weight over more wheels.
