Automotive Fasteners Market Size 2021 to 2030

Growth Factors

The automotive sector is the largest market for fasteners, which are mechanical parts that hold and affix more than two pieces together. The automotive fasteners are constructed with a variety of materials including brass, aluminum, stainless steel, nickel, and iron are further categorized according to their qualities. The automotive fasteners are commonly used to hold automobile parts together to prevent them from separating or preventing joint leak. 

To fulfill the demand of the automotive fastening industry, the automotive fasteners are available in a variety of colors and shapes as well as appealing designs and high quality. Various firms have been active in technological research and development of automotive fasteners over the previous decade, resulting in superior quality of fasteners and the expansion of the automotive fasteners market during the forecast period.

Some of the factors driving the global automotive fasteners market are changing consumer preferences for smart vehicles, increased usage of technology in automobiles, and rising disposable income. The advanced trims, sensors, and high frequency signals require various types of fasteners to be installed, which is driving the demand for automotive fasteners over the projection period.

The electric vehicles that are both sustainable and environmentally friendly are drawing buyers all around the world. The usage of fasteners in most of the automobiles is being limited due to the increased use of pressing and welding processes in automobile manufacturing. The global automotive fasteners market is being hampered by this aspect. The automotive fasteners market players should concentrate on supplying high quality solutions in order to improve automobile performance.

The easily changeable nature of automotive fasteners makes it convenient for end users to acquire fasteners for their automobiles, boosting the automotive fasteners market growth. The alternatives to automotive fasteners like as clutching and assembling parts, on the other hand, may slow the growth of the automotive fasteners market.

The mechanical innovations as well as improvements in the quality of fasteners are expected to raise market demand. Furthermore, the growing demand for lighter automobiles and their stability is driving a preference for automotive fasteners over welding, resulting in the growth of the global automotive fasteners market over the forecast period.   

Product Insights

The threaded segment dominated the automotive fasteners market with revenue share of 66% in 2020. The bolts with a head on one end and a nut on the other end are known as threaded automotive fasteners. These fasteners are frequently put into a hole and attached with the help of nuts.

Automotive Fasteners Market Share, By Product, 2020 (%)

The non-threaded segment is fastest growing segment of the automotive fasteners market in 2020. The non-threaded fasteners lack internal threading to hold it together with other parts. The different ways for securing mechanical components are demonstrated by these fasteners. 

Material Insights

In 2020, the plastic segment dominated the automotive fasteners market. The plastic fasteners are utilized in applications that need consideration of thermal, optical, environmental, and electrical qualities during the manufacturing process. 

The stainless-steel segment, on the other hand, is predicted to develop at the quickest rate in the future years. Depending on the use in the automotive sector, stainless-steel is the most commonly used material for automotive fasteners.

Characteristics Insights

The removable fasteners segment dominated the automotive fasteners market in 2020. The removable automotive fasteners are used to link two parts, but they may be easily detached without causing damage to the fasteners or the part. 

The semi-permanent fasteners segment is fastest growing segment of the automotive fasteners market in 2020. The semi-permanent automotive fasteners are meant to attach two parts; however, when the parts are disconnected, the fasteners or the part are frequently damaged.

Region Insights

Asia-Pacific dominated the automotive fasteners market in 2020. The need for vehicles that are safer and more fuel efficient is driving the growth of the automotive fasteners market in the region. In addition, the government regulatory framework for light weight automobiles has resulted in technological developments in the region. China accounted 55% market share of the total global production of automotive fasteners in 2020.

North America is expected to develop at the fastest rate during the forecast period. As the number of vehicles on the road grows, so does the need for replacement parts. Moreover, the presence of major automotive and automobile manufacturers in this region as well as the availability of advanced technology allows automotive fasteners to thrive in this region.
