Automotive Balance Shaft Market Future Analysis, Demand by Regions and Opportunities with Challenges 2032

According to ESOMAR-certified Future Market Insights’ (FMI), Demand for automotive balancing shafts market demand is expected to expand from its 2022 valuation of US$ 14.03 Billion to its 2032 valuation of US$ 25.01 Billion, a CAGR of 6%. The need for an automotive balancing shaft has been rising, particularly in the automobile sector.

The global automotive balancing shaft market has been expanding due to the rising popularity of inline 4-cylinder engines, the rising demand for vehicles with engines that produce less noise, harshness, and vibration, and the rising acceptance of fuel-efficient vehicles with low carbon emissions.

Automotive balancing shaft market expansion is hampered, however, by rising demand for luxury cars and SUVs powered by high-performance engines and the popularity of electric vehicles. However, opportunities will arise in the future as demand for passenger automobiles increases in developing countries and as new technologies are introduced.

North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Latin American and Caribbean economies are only some of the geographical segments considered in this global automotive balance shaft market study. More than half of the market in 2020 was in Asia and the Pacific. However, the LAMEA automotive balancing shaft market is expected to grow at the fastest rate throughout the forecast time frame, 7.2%.

OEMs’ employment of technologies to meet pollution and fuel economy regulations has become part of branding. In the U.S., new automobiles must obtain 34.1 mpg by 2016, which equals 250 g of CO2 per mile travelled. As consumers demand fuel-efficient, low-emission automobiles, the automotive balancing shaft business is growing. The automotive industry’s growth in developing countries also boosts the automotive balancing shaft market. Balancer shafts improve engine performance; hence the market should grow.

Low prices for auto-balancing shafts also drive the market. A broken balancing shaft won’t cost much to replace. Their user-friendliness contributes to their popularity; many individuals would prefer to buy a new car than have their old one mended. Increasing demand for passenger automobiles and light commercial vehicles, increasing awareness about fuel efficiency and emissions reduction, and strict emission restrictions around the world are driving automotive balancing shaft industry growth.

The automotive balancing shaft market provides several advantages in the automotive sector. Still, strict emission requirements and restrictions imposed on vehicle manufacturers could challenge this market in the next few years, hindering its expansion throughout the projected period. Volatility in raw material prices may also slow the balance shaft market. Demand for electric vehicles is also projected to slow the automotive balancing shaft market.
