Industry:  Automotive & Transportation | Publish Date: Dec 2022 | No of Pages:  N/A | No. Tables:  N/A | No. Figures:  N/A

Market Definition:

The Air Springs Market size was valued at USD 6.60 billion in 2021 and is predicted to reach USD 11.50 billion by 2030 with a CAGR of 6.3% from 2022-2030.

Air spring is a load-carrying component of an air suspension that is used in automobiles to provide comfort while driving. The air springs system present in vehicles is powered by an electric or engine-driven air pump or compressor. The primary objective of an air spring is to absorb shock and reduce linear vibrations faced by a vehicle or machinery. Therefore, these springs are highly responsible for ensuring better ride quality and control of vehicles.

Market Dynamics and Trends:

Increasing sales of commercial vehicles and increasing demand for premium segment vehicles in turn increases the demand for automotive components such as air springs, fuel gauges and air bags. In addition, rise in demand for lightweight suspension systems and development of advanced suspension systems that help in maintaining correct vehicle riding height while driving boosts the growth of the air springs market.

Moreover, vehicle manufacturers are developing advanced air springs which facilitate enhanced air suspension for racing trucks, further bolstering the market growth. Besides, increasing demand for light duty vehicles along with rising use of air bellow and ECU components to use Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) is further driving the growth of the air springs market.

However, high installation cost of air spring systems in vehicles and increase in maintenance cost of advanced suspension systems are the factors that are expected to restrain the growth of the air springs market during the forecast period. On the other hand, various technological developments with respect to design and composites used in air springs along with the development of regenerative suspension system to drive advanced technology in suspension systems are expected to create lucrative growth opportunities for the air springs market players in the coming years.

The geographic breakdown and analysis of each of the aforesaid segments include regions comprising North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and RoW.

Geographical Analysis:

Europe holds the lion share of air springs market at present and is expected to boost the market growth during the forecast period. This is attributed to factors such as the increasing demand for sports cars along with high demand for luxury cars which in turn is driving the market growth in this region. In addition, OEMs such as BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Audi, and Land Rover offer Electronically Controlled Air Suspension (ECAS) technology in selected models to enhance benefits such as height raising and lowering options of seats. This in turn drives the growth of the air springs market. Also, technology-driven suppliers such as Continental, ThyssenKrupp, and SAF-Holland are constantly making efforts to introduce the latest technology in the field of air suspension for light and heavy-duty vehicles. All these factors have resulted in the growth of this market in this region.

On the other hand, North America is expected to show a steady rise in the air springs market due to the rising demand for trucks in various trading activities such as construction and transportation. Also, the rising demand for electric vehicles due to lower emission of toxins to mitigate pollution is also driving the growth of the air springs market. For instance, in July 2022, Karma Automotive announced that it had joined the MIH Consortium to create an open ecosystem for the future EV industry. The mission of MIH Open Platform Alliance is to facilitate cooperation in the EV sector, developing next generation e-Mobility technologies, establishing testing and certification standards, and bringing alliance partners together. In addition, the growing demand for autonomous vehicle is further driving the market growth of the air springs market in this region. For instance, in September 2021, Ford, Argo AI, and Walmart joined hands to launch autonomous vehicle delivery service in USA. This joint venture was aimed at bringing together a self-driving technology provider with an automotive manufacturer along with one of world’s largest retailer.

Competitive Landscape:

The air springs market comprises various players such as Mando Corporation, Bridgestone, Firestone Industrial Products, Hitachi, Continental, ZF Commercial Vehicle Control Systems, Trelleborg Vibracoustic, Thyssenkrupp, Hendrickson International, Dunlop Systems and Components, and BWI Group.

These market players are adopting various strategies such as acquisitions and joint ventures of business across various regions to maintain their dominance in the air springs market.

For instance, in August 2021, Bridgestone announced opening of a new air springs plant in Williamsburg, Kentucky. This new establishment was aimed at meeting growing demand for the company's air springs products driven by the rising electric vehicle (EV) sector.  

Also, in August 2020, the ZF Commercial Vehicle Control Systems division in India launched air suspension with Electronically Controlled Air Suspension (ECAS) technology. This technology was developed to address issues including higher fuel consumption, decreased rider comfort, passenger safety, and vehicular instability.
