Automotive Chassis Systems Market By Chassis Type (Ladder Chassis, Monocoque Chassis, Backbone Chassis, Others), By Material Type (Steel, Aluminum Alloy, Carbon Fiber Composite, Others), By Vehicle Type (Passenger Cars, Commercial Vehicles, Utility Vehicles, Defense Vehicles) - Growth, Future Prospects & Competitive Analysis, 2018 – 2026

"Increasing Worldwide Motor Vehicle Production Complimenting the Automotive Chassis Systems Market Growth Positively"

Automotive chassis system market stood at US$ 55.67 Bn in 2017 and expected to grow at 5.5% CAGR during the forecast period from 2018 to 2026.  The role of a chassis in a vehicle involves around its functionality of providing a supporting structure. It is this structure onto which all the other vehicle components are attached. The chassis, whether it be structurally independent or an integral part of the body, is designed in a way as to provide superior strength while keeping the weight less. Growing motor vehicle production is one of the most important factors aiding the automotive chassis systems market growth. The fact that world motor vehicle production increased by 2.36% in 2017 over 2016 supports the aforementioned sentence. This growth is majorly supported by rising net disposable income of the people.

In recent years, there have been enacting of stringent vehicle emission control rules across various countries such as India, China, Germany and U.K. among others. This move has favored the demand for fuel-efficient vehicles positively. This is further expected to lead automobile manufacturers to manufacture vehicles with lightweight chassis systems in order to reduce the overall vehicle weight thereby achieving better fuel efficiency and low emission.

Another prominent factor complimenting the automotive chassis systems market growth can be attributed to the rising electric vehicle production globally. As a result of increasing fuel price coupled with stringent greenhouse emission regulations by government, the adoption of electric vehicles has grown manifold in recent years. For instance, world's fleet of electric vehicles grew 54% to about 3.1 million in 2017. Moreover, by 2030, this number is further expected to rise and hit 125 million.

"Research and Development Activities to Focus upon Reducing the Weight of Chassis Systems"

The rising demand for premium and improved performance vehicles has led automobile manufacturers to focus upon research and development activities in order to manufacture chassis systems. For instance, Audi in its new A6 model has introduced a naturally weighted electric-assist steering and dynamic chassis mode that improves the driving experience by facilitating automating shifting of gears. Moreover, increasing focus is laid by the vehicle manufacturers to use lightweight material to manufacture chassis systems. In coming years, electric vehicles are expected to increasingly deploy carbon fiber composite material in the manufacture of chassis systems. As this material is light weight, therefore it helps a great deal in the reducing the emission produced by a vehicle.

However, fluctuating price of raw materials is one of the challenges influencing the market growth negatively. Materials such as steel and aluminum among others are witnessing an increase in price which might hinder its adoption in the manufacturing of chassis systems.
