Automotive Wheel Market Introduction

Automotive wheel market is forecasted to value around USD 81 Billion by 2029 end and is expected to register a CAGR of 3.6% over the forecast period 2020-2029.

Increased manufacturing of cars alongside a rising consumer preference for comfortable and fuel-efficient vehicles has inflated the size of the automotive wheel market. Choosing the right wheels is a part of the car design which depends on the car dimensions and total vehicle expenditure. Foreign variables include economic pricing, high capacity for transport and reduced weight and corrosion resistance, which help companies to increase the customer purchase over the expected period.

The market is divided into by rim size, by material, by end-users, by vehicle class, and by vehicle type. On the basis of rim size, 18''-20'' is expected to dominate the growth of the market. The trend of wheels of higher rim size is inflating the demand of 18'' to 20''.

Based on material, the alloy is expected to lead the market. Establishment of lightweight alloys alongside improved vehicle dynamics has been encouraging the growth of the market. Carbon fiber and others are also expected to inflate the market owing to the increasing demand for high-performance vehicle and technological innovations.

Based on vehicle type, the vehicle segment passenger vehicle is expected to dominate the growth of the market. Rapid demand of passenger vehicle in economies like India and China is witnessed to trigger the growth of the market.

Based on end-users, the OE segment is expected to propel the market during the forecast period. Wheels are designed so that they can last for a long time with the vehicle. The only time when the wheels are replaced or removed is during an accident. Compared to OE, the demand for the wheel is less in the aftermarket.

On the basis of vehicle class, luxury cars are escalating the market. Luxury vehicles are better performing vehicles. They play a significant role in improving the dynamics of the vehicle. The rise in disposable income coupled with the growing demand for comfort and safety features have fueled the growth of luxury vehicles.

In terms of region, the Asia-Pacific region is forecasted to be a lucrative region for the manufacturers. The increased spending of infrastructure coupled rise in per capita income in developing nations like China and India have spurred the size of the market.

Rising ownership of vehicles and registrations worldwide play a significant role in the development of the sector due to the growing disposable income. In addition, the elevated level of market penetration by car finance firms, facilitated leasing and access to credit have a positive effect on automotive property development. The market should be favored in the course of the research with enhancement in car aesthetics, together with the performance improvement obtained through high efficiency and personalized wheels. The need for the use of lightweight parts in cars is driven by stringent emissions and fuel economy regulations.

The key industry players present in the global automotive wheel market include Changchun Faway Automobile Components Co., Ltd., Maxion Wheels, Zhejiang Wanfeng Auto Wheel, Ronal Group, Topy Industries Limited, Titan International, Inc., Superior Industries International, Inc., and Borbet GmbH among others.
