The drive shaft market size was valued at USD 57.1 Billion in 2023 and is expected to reach a market size of USD 99.1 Billion by 2032 at a CAGR of 6.3%.

Fort Collins, Colorado, May 08, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) —

The demand for high-performance vehicles is a prominent driver of need for drive shaft components.

The surge in demand for high-performance vehicles is a significant driving force behind the drive shaft market. With consumers increasingly seeking vehicles boasting enhanced acceleration, speed, and overall performance, there arises a need for advanced drive shaft technologies. As per a report by the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers (OICA), global passenger car production hit 65.2 million units in 2023, showcasing resilience despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. As the automotive sector rebounds and consumer preferences gravitate toward high-performance vehicles, the demand for cutting-edge drive shafts is poised for substantial growth.

The drive shaft market is also propelled by the growing adoption of lightweight materials and advanced manufacturing methods. Automakers are intensifying efforts to reduce vehicle weight to enhance fuel efficiency and curb emissions to comply with stringent government regulations. A study by the U.S. Department of Energy indicates that a 10% reduction in vehicle weight can yield a 6-8% improvement in fuel efficiency. Lightweight materials like aluminum, carbon fiber, and composites are increasingly being employed in drive shaft manufacturing. These materials not only contribute to weight reduction but also augment performance attributes.
