Automotive Counter Shaft Market Challenges, Manufacturing Growth and Trends 2018-2028

Future Market Insights

An automotive counter shaft is a bearing in the gear box of every vehicle that allows relative motion between contacts. An automotive counter shaft transmits power and motion with change in direction or speed from one gear to another gear. Automotive counter shaft could be made of iron, steel, stainless steel, or other composite metals. Gear box is the foundation of every vehicle’s transmission system which maintains the speed of the motor, and functions with the help of bearings, such as automotive counter shaft. This makes gear box an elementary component in a vehicle.

Automotive Counter Shaft: Market Drivers and Challenges

The global vehicle production was over 98 million units by the end of FY2017, making global vehicle PARC over 1.3 billion. Further, by the end of 2026, this production volume is projected to reach over 136 million units, reflecting a CAGR of 3.7%.  Thus, the increasing vehicle PARC and production is expected to drive the demand for automotive components, thereby augmenting the need of automotive counter shaft over the forecast period. 

In recent years, the automotive industry has gained significant opportunities from the globalization. The prominent automotive companies have established their footprint across the major markets, who are being challenged by geopolitical factors and related economic measures which can affect the overall decision making in a foray expansion in target regional markets. Thus, in the coming years, it is expected that the automotive industry will be critically driven by innovation as the market entrants are moving to claim their share in the emerging automotive marketplaces. Hence, innovation in material technology that offers better rigidity and require less maintenance can secure the company’s position across the value chain.

Additionally, electrification, connectivity, and autonomous technology are the top three emerging trend in the automotive industry, and these trends depend primarily on the transmission system of a vehicle.  For instance, the transition from emission to emission-free individual mobility is hardly possible without the electrification of powertrain, and these “emission-free-environment” initiatives will replace the old vehicle PARC, which in turn, is expected to drive the demand for new automotive components, such as automotive counter shaft. Further, the breakneck progress in the automotive industry, such as integration of artificial intelligence, self-learning machines and interconnected networks, has made possible things that seemed illusory, for instance, development autonomous vehicles with no human presence on-board. This has completely changed the definition of mobility in the automotive counter shaft marketplace. Therefore, over the stipulated period, sales of autonomous vehicles is estimated to expand. This is anticipated to create significant opportunities for the automotive counter shaft market over the forecast period.
