The global automotive wheel market was valued at US$ 45 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach over US$ 76.89 billion by 2030, poised to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.1% from 2021 to 2030.
The automotive wheel market is growing due to an increase in automobile production and a continuing trend of vehicle weight reduction. The automotive wheel market is propelled by the need for light weight wheels to reduce vehicle weight and improve fuel efficiency. The industry’s growth has been boosted by technological advancements and product developments in design and material. Furthermore, the rising consumer expenditure on vehicles, together with rising population, boosts the automotive wheel market growth.
The increasing in middle-class people’s disposable income is driving the demand for the automotive wheel in the market. Furthermore, the rising vehicle demand from nations such as Germany, China, the U.S., and India is driving the growth of the automotive wheel market.
However, raw material price fluctuation stifles the automotive wheel market expansion. Furthermore, the lack of uniformity in automotive wheel production processes is projected to constraint the market.
During the projected period, demand for automotive wheels will be restrained by the extension of component life through repair and maintenance, as this serves to extend the life of a component and so reduces the demand for new components. The new and innovative technologies are being introduced to the automotive wheel market that will allow customers to fix their wheel components without having to replace them. As more firms enter the automotive wheel market, the demand for new components, particularly wheels, will decline in both the local and regional markets.
The automotive wheel market’s growth would be hampered by the high prices of raw materials for high-performance wheels, as well as the limitations associated with inaccurate sensor input created as a result of aftermarket wheel integration. The manufacturing costs, on the other hand, will continue to be a huge obstacle to market profitability and economic viability, as will technological developments to boost performance while decreasing vehicle weight for better fuel efficiency.
In cold nations, the demand for automobiles with heavy metal wheels is growing since these wheels effectively resist sliding during snow or hail. This aspect is expected to stifle the market for automotive wheel in the coming years.
The automotive wheel market is growing due to the factors such as a strong demand for light weight vehicles. Furthermore, during the forecast period, the comparatively high cost of magnesium and aluminum wheels will limit the market expansion. Moreover, the rapid growth in the electric vehicle market is likely to provide attractive chances for market expansion in the near future.
