Report Digest


Propeller shaft is a vehicle component for transferring the mechanical power and torque. Automotive axle and propeller shafts transfer torque from differential to wheels and engine to differential respectively. It helps in generating momentum in vehicles. The axles are capable of bearing the entire weight of vehicles and cargos.

The global automotive axle and propeller shaft market is expected to witness princely growth in 2021, over 2020 with a steady CAGR. Increase in vehicle production, interest in purchasing luxurious and comfortable cars and research in light weighting of the overall vehicle are the key growth prospects.   

Growing demand for luxurious cars may drive the growth

The recent developments in drive train and chassis components increase the efficiency and reduce the power loss by transferring power from engine to wheels. Demand for shafts that can handle higher stress for heavy duty applications is increasing. These advance technilogies are being made available in luxurious cars and thus, the production of such vehicles is rising and eventually driving the market.

Automotive Axle and Propeller Shaft Market

The prices of steel and alloy through which these axles and propeller shafts are made up of fluctuate very often. The prices of castings, forgings and bearings are also unstable in current years. The uncertainty of prices of components is creating pressure on small scale businessmen for deciding the prices.
