An air spring is defined as a pneumatic device made of rubber and fabric, designed with bellows, and utilized to support heavy loads, absorb vibrations & shocks, or operate as a pneumatic cylinder by expanding its volume. There are different types of air springs, including rolling lobe air spring, multi convoluted air spring, sleeve air spring, single convoluted air spring, and others. The rolling lobe air spring finds primary application in trailers, commercial trucks, and buses. A piston is integrated within rolling lobe air springs, enabling the flexible component to roll along the surface of the piston.

Europe, Asia-Pacific and UAE Aftermarket Air Spring Market

In recent years, air springs have gained considerable access in the automotive aftermarket, where these are sold separately from the original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). Aftermarket air springs are generally not installed in the vehicle at the factory, instead they are procured and deployed later as replacements for worn-out or damaged original shocks. Aftermarket auto components are broadly available through a range of channels, including automotive parts stores, online retailers, and specialty shops. This accessibility makes it easier for customers to find and purchase suitable replacements or upgrades.

Light Commercial Vehicle segment accounted for the highest market share in 2022

Factors that drive the growth of the aftermarket air spring market include technological advancement, surge in demand for luxury vehicles, and growth of e-commerce. Countries such as China, India, and Brazil are growing economies. Thus, vehicle manufacturing and automotive component manufacturing sectors are witnessing prominent growth in these countries, which is expected to provide lucrative opportunities for growth of the aftermarket air springs market in the region.

Key Developments

Leading companies are adopting strategies such as product launch, acquisition, agreement, expansion, partnership, contracts, and product launches to strengthen their market position.

  • In October 2021, Continental AG, parent company of ContiTech Deutschland GmbH, signed an agreement to supply air suspension vibration dampers & compressors to independent workshops of vehicle manufacturers as original parts. Furthermore, continental drives its portfolio expansion for the aftermarket with new products for VW and Audi models.
  • In November 2022, ZF Friedrichshafen AG launched its own range of air springs, renowned for Sachs quality. Sachs air springs are made of high-quality, corrosion-resistant material that has a long service life and high resistance to external influences. The new product from Sachs is available for vehicles with separately arranged springs and dampers.

Technological advancement and growth of e-commerce:

The surge in automation and incorporation of cutting-edge technologies in the automotive industry have propelled the demand for vehicles featuring advanced components such as air suspension systems, resulting in increased vehicle sales in Europe and Asia-Pacific. Moreover, integration of superior air suspension systems in vehicles has enhanced driving comfort which has driven the demand for air spring.

Dependence of e-commerce companies on logistics service providers to ensure transportation of goods through warehouse and distribution hub has increased in the countries such as India, China, and other Asia-Pacific countries, owing to significant expansion of e-commerce activities. Thus, logistics companies primarily less than truckload (LTL) and full truckload (FTL) freight shipping companies are increasingly adopting heavy-duty trailers due to versatility being offered in terms of load-carrying capacity. This has driven the demand for air springs owing to reduced vibration and noise transmitted from the road to the vehicle.

Surge in demand for luxury vehicles:

Countries have established laws and regulations mandating the installation of advanced comfort systems and automotive safety & compliance frameworks, such as air springs used in suspension systems. The Europe, Asia-Pacific, and UAE aftermarket air spring market is driven by significant growth in car sales, predominantly in developing economies such as India and China. For instance, the Chinese economy is on the rise, leading to an increase in the discretionary income of the middle-class population. Technological advancements play a crucial role in maintaining the vitality of the automotive industry. These innovations include improvement in safety features, enhancement in speed & efficiency, greater fuel economy, full automation, and range of other attributes that enhance a vehicle's desirability, driving the demand and sales for the luxury vehicles where air springs are deployed.

Design complexity and cost related challenges:

Integrating air springs into automotive suspension systems has greater complexity compared to traditional systems, resulting in high manufacturing and installation expenses. In addition, this contributes to high maintenance costs throughout the vehicle's operational life. Regular maintenance is essential to maintain the optimal performance of air springs. This includes inspecting for leaks, closely monitoring air pressure, and addressing identified issues. Failing to conduct regular maintenance results in more substantial problems and increased repair costs. All these factors hamper the growth of the Europe, Asia-Pacific, and UAE aftermarket air spring market.

Rising fleet of electric and hybrid vehicles

The surge in vehicle electrification, hybrid vehicles, smart mobility services, high fuel prices, and rise in inclination toward non-fossil fuel-based vehicles contribute to the expansion of the electric vehicle market. Air springs are a key component in the air suspension system of cars as they control the noise and vibrations of the vehicles. They provide the flexibility to adjust suspension settings, allowing drivers to personalize both the ride height and stiffness of their vehicles. This adaptability is designed to accommodate diverse driving conditions and individual preferences, offering versatility for use in both on-road and off-road applications which are driving the growth of the Europe, Asia-Pacific, and UAE aftermarket air spring market. According to the European Environment Agency, the prevalence of electric vans registered 5.5% growth in 2022.
