Automotive Carbon Wheels Market Research, 2030

The global automotive carbon wheels market was valued at $626.00 million in 2021, and is projected to reach $1.5 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 9.9% from 2022 to 2030.

Automotive Carbon Wheels Market, Automotive Carbon Wheels Industry

A wheel is a circular metal frame with spokes or a solid disc attached to a hub. Car tires, also known as rims or alloy wheels, are mounted on a wheel frame. Steel, aluminum, magnesium, carbon fiber, or a combination of these metals are used to make these. Automobile carbon fiber wheels are lightweight, have a long wheel life, and are extremely strong. They also have many other advantages over the traditional wheels, such as elevated fatigue damage strength and durability, self-vibration cushioning, stronger grip, and high heat rigidity.

The need to improve fuel efficiency and reduce vehicle weight are the primary driving factors expected to boost demand for automotive carbon wheels and expand the automotive carbon wheels market size. Vehicle weight reduction, which leads to improved efficiency and performance, is a major concern for automotive players. Reduced wheel weight improves maneuverability, provides a quieter and smoother ride, faster acceleration, faster slowdown, improved suspension, and continued fuel efficiency improvements. All such factors drive the global automotive carbon wheels market.

However, the high initial cost of manufacturing carbon fiber material may limit the growth of the automotive carbon wheels market in the coming years. Furthermore, carbon wheels are only available in a limited number of sizes, and their high cost restricts their application to specific vehicle segments. As a result, the global market for automotive carbon wheels is suffering.

The global automotive carbon wheels market is segmented on the basis of vehicle type, distribution channel, and region. By vehicle type, the market has been divided into passenger cars, commercial vehicles, and two-wheelers. By distribution channel, the analysis has been divided into OEM and aftermarket. By region, the market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.
