Active kinematics control is a system that is attached to the chassis of an automobile to facilitate the movement of the wheels. This system supports the steering of the cars providing movement of both front and rear wheels. The active kinematics control systems complement the steering systems. Luxury automobile manufacturers are manufacturing cars with kinematics control for both on-road and off-road application. For instance, in June 2018, BMW AG launched BMW X5, a new model that has model specific kinematics and electro kinematics control system, which optimizes its transitional response and increases models agility & steering precision. Active kinematics control in chassis systems is becoming highly dependent on the electrical systems that increasingly replace the mechanical linkages used earlier. These factors are greatly advantageous for the growth of the market as the change in technology with adjustable parts and complementary electrical components improve the systems.
The existing processes for chassis systems manufacturing are expensive and according to the growing business trends cost-cutting is required to manufacture automobiles at low cost. The introduction of new technologies such as 3D printing for manufacturing of chassis systems give a new dimension to the market dynamics. The recent Vision 100 car by Rolls Royce introduces the concept of 3D printing of chassis systems parts. This concept can be extended for production of other cars. In addition, the usage of the Collaborative Robots called Cobots for chassis manufacturing in the automobiles industry is improving the market capability. Moreover, there are a number of companies in the market that cater to the chassis systems market. The chassis market provides an easy entrance for the new industries. For instance, a start-up, ECOmove in 2014 developed technology to manufacture ultra-lightweight carbon fiber chassis, without using special equipment. This is made possible due to the absence of any standards or set guidelines for the production of automotive chassis by any of the major international organizations such as International Organization for Standardization (ISO) or Society of Automobile Engineers (SAE). The production of chassis in this regard falls completely on the discretion of the industry capable of investing in the process.
Factors such as increase in production of automobiles across all segments of vehicles, Anchorpreference change by automobile manufacturers, and innovations and progress of automobile industry drive the growth of the market. HoAnchorwever, large expenditure on R&D is expected to hamper the growth of the market. Further, Anchorintroduction of new technologies for manufacturing and non-standardization of automotive chassis is anticipated to provide lucrative opportunities for the key players operating in the global active kinematics control systems market.
