Increase in demand for motor vehicles

The India automotive steering system market trends has been witnessing continuous increase in vehicle sales, owing to significant rise in demand for motor vehicles. India is the fourth largest automobile market, and its automobile sales, including passenger and commercial vehicles, increased by 9.5% and more than 4 million units in 2017. This trend is expected to grow further over few years, as most OEMs are considerably investing in this sector. Moreover, increase in deployment of automotive steering systems to control vehicle direction acts as the key driver of the market. In addition, surge in incidence of vehicle accidents results in damage of steering system or its components, which in turn boosts the demand for steering systems in the aftermarket. Thus, all these factors together significantly contribute toward the growth of market. 

Surge in adoption of power steering systems

The automotive industry has witnessed evolution of steering systems from manual steering systems, which use only mechanical linkages such as rack and pinion, to power steering systems, which help drivers to steer the vehicle by reducing steering efforts, making it easier for the driver to turn. The manual steering system has limitations pertaining to maneuverability and fuel efficiency of vehicle. However, the power steering system has hydraulics and electronic components, which assists comfort driving, and simultaneously improves the efficiency of the vehicle. Thus, shift in preference of consumers toward power-assisted steering as compared to manual steering is anticipated to propel the growth of the industry.

High cost associated with power steering systems

Power steering system is widely used in passenger cars, light commercial vehicles, and heavy commercial vehicles owing to its vital role in vehicle. The power steering system is either equipped with electronic motor or hydraulic piston, depending upon the system deployed in the vehicle. These parts are costlier, thereby increasing the price of steering system. This in turn is accountable for hike in the car prices. Hence, high cost associated with power steering system limits the growth of the India automotive steering system market.

Low penetration of power steering in low segment vehicles

The overall cost of powered steering is high due to its high-end features when compared with the traditional power steering. Moreover, its adoption rate has increased in low segment vehicles (low price) such as sedan, hatchback, and others as compared to luxurious cars. Furthermore, most of the luxury cars are deployed with hydraulic steering system, and some have both electro-hydraulic and hydraulic in their high-end variants, which significantly increases their cost and hampers their adoption. This in turn limits the penetration of power steering systems, thereby restraining the growth of the India automotive steering system market.
