From steering systems to pedals, hoses, gearshifts, and more, an automotive chassis system comprises a myriad components. Apart from integrating functions, these components are also primary candidates for reducing the weight and cost of vehicles. With rapid expansion of the automotive industry, automakers have witnessed surging demand for lightweight and cost-effective chassis systems, without compromising on the performance and the safety of the vehicles.
Key players piloting the automotive industry such as Continental AG, Robert Bosch GmbH, Bentley International AG, American Axle & Manufacturing, ZF Friedrichshafen, and Magna International Inc. are working on design technology, processing capabilities, and predictive engineering to offer innovative automotive chassis designs.
Such efforts, coupled with increased investment by leading producers, are likely to propel the global automotive chassis systems market at a positive 4.1% CAGR between 2015 and 2021. In 2014, the global automotive chassis systems market was valued at US$65.50 billion in 2014. According to a report published by Transparency Market Research, by 2021 the market will reach US$86.48 billion.
What are Automotive Chassis Systems?
Chassis is the internal framework of a vehicle to support the automotive design in its construction. Analogous to an animal’s skeleton, the chassis forms the backbone of the vehicle. It can also include the engine, suspension system, and power transmission system, in which case it is called a rolling chassis. Major components of automotive chassis systems include control arms, knuckles, and suspension links.
