Automotive and Transportation Automotive Axle & Propeller Shaft Market

The Global Automotive Axle and Propeller Shaft Market is projected to grow at a CAGR 2.69% rate during the forecast period. Growing global vehicle production, increasing demand for luxury vehicles, and commercialization of new technologies towards light-weighting of the overall vehicle is expected to drive axle and propeller shaft market. The single piece is estimated to be the largest market for automotive propeller shaft market during the forecast period. The single piece propeller shaft is usually preferred in light-duty vehicles owing to the lesser distance between the engine and the rear axle along with benefits such as minimal frictional as well as mechanical losses. Also, these single piece shafts are lighter in weight than multi-piece, which offers efficient performance at a higher speed. Due to these factors, the single piece propeller shaft holds the largest share during the forecast period.


Live axle segment is expected to be the largest market, by axle type, during the forecast period. Increasing focus towards optimizing vehicle performance and delivering higher torque would augment the live axle market. Also, growing vehicle production, as well as engineering advancements to cater to the changing customers need, would drive the market.


Alloy is estimated to be the highest consumed material during the forecast period. A majority of passenger car and light commercial vehicle are installed with propeller shaft made up of alloy material owing to its benefits such as satisfactory strength, stiffness, and lower cost.


Europe is estimated to be the second largest and established market for axles and propeller shafts and is projected to witness stable growth in the coming years. A major growth driver is expected to be stringent fuel-economy norms which would encourage research activities to develop lightweight solutions for vehicles. The increased production level in Germany, the UK, and France, along with the rise in premium vehicle sales, are estimated to drive the demand for axles and propeller shafts.
