A recent report published by Infinium Global Research on the cardan
shaft market provides an in-depth analysis of segments and sub-segments in the
global as well as regional cardan shaft market. The study also highlights the
impact of drivers, restraints, and macro indicators on the global and regional
cardan shaft market over the short term as well as long term. The report is a
comprehensive presentation of trends, forecast and dollar values of global
cardan shaft market. According to the report, the global cardan shaft market is
projected to grow at a CAGR of 1.6% over the forecast period of 2019-2025.
Cardan shaft is a mechanical component used as a transmission
element in the automotive, manufacturing and machinery and equipment industries.
Apart from that, cardan shafts are also used in marine application between the
transmission and either a propeller gearbox. Cardan shafts commonly integrate
one or more universal joints, rag joints or jaw couplings, and sometimes a
splined joint or prismatic joint. Aluminum, steel, and carbon fiber reinforced
plastic (CFRP) are raw materials used for manufacturing of cardan shafts.
Cardan shaft are categorized into different sizes including small, medium,
heavy and extra heavy.
Cardan shaft is a major component in the automotive industry.
Growing automotive sales across the globe drive the growth of the cardan shaft
market. As per the European Automobile Manufacturers Association, it is estimated
that 98.9 million motor vehicles were produced globally in 2017. Besides that, the cardan shaft is widely used in construction, agricultural machinery. Apart from
this, recent investment by established automakers is another factor escalating
the growth of the cardan shaft market. However, fluctuation in raw material prices
could hamper the growth of the cardan shaft market. Furthermore, growing needs for
more compact, more efficient drive components have been mounting to reduce fuel
consumption in addressing environmental conservation. Thus, cardan shafts need
to be light in weight hence the demand for lightweight cardan shafts has
augmented, that in turn, creating growth opportunities for the cardan shaft
market. Moreover, stringent norms posed by the international emission control
authorities have encouraged the manufacturers to make lightweight drive shafts
by using aluminum in the place of steel.
Geographically, Asia Pacific held the maximum share in the cardan
shaft market. The growth in the Asia Pacific region is due to the emergence of
rapidly growing economies such as China, South Korea, India, Japan, Thailand,
and Indonesia. Environment Protection Authority policies and stringent
Corporate Average Fuel Economy regulations forced the automotive manufacturers to
reduce the weight of the vehicles to reduce fuel consumption and emission.
Moreover, the increasing investment in the automobile industry, especially in
countries such as China is escalating the growth of the cardan shaft market in
Asia Pacific region.
