Increasing adoption of electric vehicles

Indian State governments are taking initiatives to promote the adoption of electric vehicles. For instance, in 2021, The Indian Government offered a subsidy of USD 1,881.11 on purchase of four-wheel EVs by reducing GST component on electric vehicles. The electric vehicle is environment-friendly and aids in reducing pollution. Electric vehicles run on electric power, and any damage to the wiring harness can cause serious damage to vehicles. Therefore, the increase in need for wire harnesses in electric control units is also expected to propel the demand for wiring harnesses during the forecast period.

Furthermore, the government of India also focuses on the electric vehicle infrastructure, which drives the demand for electric vehicles in India. For instance, in the current scenario, more than 2000 electric buses are operating on the Indian roads. Moreover, in April 2022, Tata Motors was awarded a contract for 5,450 electric buses for 5 cities under the FAME-II (Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Electric Vehicles) scheme. Thus, these factors are expected to drive the demand for electric vehicles, which will support the growth of India's commercial wiring harness market during the forecast period.

Development of vehicles with advanced safety features        

To comply with safety mandates, several automobile manufacturers are working toward providing enhanced safety and security features such as airbags and advanced driving systems. In automobiles, safety features such as Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB), lane departure warning system (LDWS), advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) and others require electronic components and a high-quality wiring harness system. In July 2022, Bharat Benz launched its 6 trucks and 2 busses in the Indian commercial vehicle market. These vehicles have safety features such as parabolic suspension, infection-proof fabric seats, and others. This, in turn, results in an increased usage of wiring harnesses, which is expected to increase the demand for wiring harnesses, thus propelling the growth of the market during the forecast period.

Durability issue in wiring harnesses

Vehicles have a variety of electrical faults, including front and rear lights, battery, lights, alternator, and ignition failure, which can be caused by wire harness failure. The wire harness may bend due to sudden environmental changes such as extreme hot/cold. Extremely hot to extremely cold temperatures and rapid changes from one temperature to another impact the performance of wiring harnesses. These problems can reduce the life of wiring harness. Corrosion problems like this are one of the main factors hindering the growth of commercial vehicle wire harnesses.

Analyst Review

The India commercial vehicle wiring harness market is expected to witness remarkable growth in the future, owing to the growing e-commerce industry across the country which requires more commercial vehicles. Growing e-commerce industry is projected to lead to increased demand for commercial vehicles, which is anticipated to support the growth of wiring harnesses in India during the forecast period. Furthermore, competition among automotive manufacturers is on a continuous rise; motor vehicle weight and costs are two major factors on which these players compete. Traditional wiring techniques resulted in the weight, complexity, and cost of the automotive wiring harness being directly proportional to the number of electrical/electronic devices used in vehicles. The incorporation of advanced automotive wiring harnesses is expected to help automobile manufacturers develop lightweight and low-cost wiring harness systems. According to the research commissioned by the International Copper Association (ICA), there is a projected increase in the use of copper in automobile wire harness.

As per the report, the average weight of copper used in automobile wire harnesses surged globally from 11.0 kg in 2016 to 12.6 kg in 2019—a 14.5% rise. This increase in weight is a direct result of rise in the complexity of the wiring harness caused by an increase in the overall electronic content of motor vehicles. This is projected to boost the demand for wiring harnesses for modern vehicles. The increase in adoption of electric vehicles, development of vehicles with advanced safety features, and advancements in wiring harnesses are expected to drive the market growth during the forecast period. However, durability issues in wiring harnesses, and high maintenance costs are anticipated to hamper the Indian commercial vehicle wiring harness market. Furthermore, technological advancement in commercial vehicles and the expansion of the construction industry in India are predicted to offer lucrative opportunities to market players during the forecast period.
