Trends, opportunities and forecast in automotive suspension market to 2025 by vehicle type (passenger car, light commercial vehicle, and heavy commercial vehicle), by system (passive suspension system, active suspension system, and semi- active suspension system), by damping type (hydraulic suspension, air suspension, leaf spring suspension, and others), end user (OEM and aftermarket), by material type (steel, composites, and others) and by region (North America, Europe, APAC, and ROW)

The future of the automotive suspension market looks promising with opportunities in the passenger car, light commercial vehicle and heavy commercial vehicle segments. The global automotive suspension market is expected to decline in 2020 due to global economic recession led by COVID-19. However, market will witness recovery in the year 2021 and it is expected to reach an estimated $48.6 billion by 2025 with a CAGR of 0.5% to 2.5% from 2020 to 2025. The major drivers of growth for this market are increasing vehicle production, increasing need for improved ride quality, and the growing demand for advanced safety and convenience systems.

Emerging trends, which have a direct impact on the dynamics of the automotive suspension industry, include the development of lightweight suspensions, the introduction of electronic suspension technology, and the introduction of energy recovery suspension systems.

Automotive suspension technologies have evolved through number of stages as presented in figure below:

A and others.

On the basis of its comprehensive research, The analyst forecasts that the passenger car segment will show above average growth during the forecast period.

By system, passive suspension system, active suspension system, and semi-active suspension system are the major segments of the automotive suspension market. Passive suspension system is the largest segment but active suspension system is expected to grow faster as it works by constantly sensing changes in the road surface and feeding the information through ECU to the outlying components. Thus these components help in adjusting shock stiffness and spring rates thereby improving ride comfort, which results in increasing safety and comfort of the passengers.

APAC is expected to remain the largest region and register the highest growth rate due to higher vehicle production, increasing government regulations for safety and security, and consumer demand for improved suspensions during the forecast period.
