Market Restraint

Falling Revenues & Plant Closures amid COVID-19 to Constrain Market Growth

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a severe downturn in the automotive industry, primarily because of a drastic decline in market demand for cars and other vehicles as the majority of the working population worldwide has shifted to remote working. As a result of the steep drop in demand, prominent companies in this market are grappling with shrinking revenues and reduced profits. For example, ZF Friedrichshafen announced in May 2020 that it will be slashing 15,000 jobs over the next five years at its plants across the globe owing to the frozen demand for cars amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Another major market, Dana Incorporated, reported a loss of USD 174 million in the second quarter of 2020 due to lower sales in the COVID-19 pandemic. Large automakers have been hit as well by the pandemic, with several of them being forced to close some of their plants. Fiat Chrysler, for instance, announced the closure of its plants in Poland, Serbia, and Italy in March 2020. These unfavorable developments will inevitably affect the automotive axle market growth as the coronavirus has disrupted investment plans of most of the players in the automotive industry.

Regional Insights

Asia Pacific to Command the Market Powered by Speedy Urbanization

Asia Pacific is expected to dominate the automotive axle market share during the forecast period owing to the rapid growth of urban areas in the region. Speedy growth of large cities in India, China, Vietnam, and Thailand has escalated the demand for vehicles in the region, with consumers demanding vehicles with advanced components and features, which bode well for this market. The region’s market size in 2019 stood at USD 14.23 billion.

The market in North America and Europe will be mainly driven by the strong presence of automotive component manufacturers in these regions. Furthermore, the adoption of electric and hybrid vehicles is also steadily rising in these continents, which is propelling the demand for more sophisticated automotive axle along with other vehicular components.
