Increase in demand for automotive

The global automotive market is observed for continuous growth as the market experiences continuous demand for vehicles. The developing countries such as India, China, and Brazil among others are the most demanding countries for automotive sector. China, being the world’s largest market for vehicles, is expected to grow further over few years as most OEMs are also making large investments in this sector. The increase in demand for vehicles in automotive sector explicitly results in rise in demand for steering system as every automobile needs steering system to control vehicle direction. Also, the vehicle accident may lead to change in steering system or its component which leads to increase in demand for steering system in the aftermarket. Hence, the increase in demand for vehicle is anticipated to increase the demand for steering system in near future.

Adoption of power steering system

The automotive industry has developed from manual steering systems, which use only mechanical linkages such as rack and pinion, to power steering system. The manual steering system has limitations regarding maneuverability and fuel efficiency of vehicle. However, the power steering system has hydraulics and electronic components, which assist the driving and simultaneously improve the efficiency of the vehicle. Hence, the power steering system has been widely accepted all across the globe. The increase in adoption of power-assisted steering is responsible for increase in demand for steering system in the automotive industry.

High cost associated with power steering system

Power steering system is widely used in different types of vehicles such as passenger cars, light commercial vehicles, and heavy commercial vehicles. The power steering system has either electronic motor or hydraulic piston depending upon the system used in the vehicle as compared to manual steering system. These parts are costlier, which increases the price of the steering system. High cost of power steering system is responsible for the hike in the car prices. Hence, high cost associated with power steering system is expected to inhibit the growth of the power steering system market.

Consumer preference toward driving comfort

The consumers demand maximum features in their vehicle from manufacturer including power steering system that makes vehicle more responsive resulting in increase in driving comfort and drive quality. The developing countries such as China and India have uneven road conditions, which need better steering mechanism to improve the drive quality. Along with this, developed countries such as the U.S., the UK, and Germany have freeways where vehicles need adaptive steering system to control the vehicles running at high speeds. These factors also make the drive comfortable for consumers. Hence, the automotive steering system market is expected to grow as the consumers prefer to choose driving comfort.
