Air Suspension Market Segment Analysis - By Type of Component

Electronic Control Module segment held the largest share in the air suspension market in 2020 with 21.3%. Increasing demand for electronically controlled air suspension technology for luxury vehicles is leading to the rising demand for electronic control module. The increasing usage of this electronic enabled component such as solenoid valves, lines and so on are commonly being used for electronically-controlled systems, in order to fill and vent each airbag and the usage, are increasing, as it can be adjusted in different conditions. This increasing use of lines, solenoid valves are enhancing the electronic module segment and is anticipated to be the major driving factor for rising adoption of air suspension in automotive. However, increasing maintenance and installation cost will hinder the adoption of air suspension system in medium and especially low priced vehicles.

Air Suspension Market Segment Analysis – By Technology

Electronically Controlled Air Suspension technology has been the primary factor that is fueling the market for air suspension. This segment held the highest share at 69.7% in 2020. Due to the increasing development and changes in technology, the need for fast, precision-based technology that includes advanced electronics for controlling everything including ride height, bag pressure and smooth and controlled drive has been growing. The growing installation rates of air suspension system in commercial vehicles such as semi-trailers and multi-axle buses will boost the market for air suspension.

Air Suspension Market Segment Analysis – By Geography

The air suspension market share in Europe is estimated to be 34% in 2020 as this region is highly dominating the growth of air suspension industry, followed by APAC and North America. The economy of Europe is mainly influenced by the economic dynamics of countries such as UK, Germany and Spain, but with growing developments and investments in the countries like Germany, the current scenario is changing. Germany is Europe’s largest producer of major luxury cars brands and majority of Germany’s automotive giants are in the process of investing a huge sum of money that is around $44 billion in the coming years on automotive technology development. This investment will enhance the use of air suspension system in the latest passenger cars and other vehicle types that will fuel the growth of air suspension market.

According to Germany Trade & Invest, around 78% of passenger cars were manufactured in Germany in 2019 for international market. According to German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA), it was also estimated that the production of passenger cars in Germany has increased by 4% in September 2019 as compared to August 2019. Furthermore, Germany is witnessing high growth in the automotive industry due to leading investments by companies such as Continental, ThyssenKrupp, and SAF-Holland for introducing latest technology in the field of air suspension for all types of vehicles. According to OICA, Germany passenger cars sales witnessed a growth of over 7.17% during 2015-2019 having huge potential to grow.

In APAC region, China has the largest automotive industry in the world and according to China Association of Automobile Manufacturer (CAAM), the production of passenger vehicles was 84.6% in 2019 and sales accounted for 84.4%. India also has excellent potential for automotive industry growth in the future. The country's automotive industry experienced 8% growth in production in 2018, over the previous year. However, the market declined in 2019 and 2020 but is expected to bounce back in the midterm. The rising production of passenger vehicles in countries such as Germany, China, and India will lead to tremendous demand for electronically and non-electronically controlled air suspension technology driving the air suspension market.

Air Suspension Market Drivers

Growing demand for luxury buses and passenger cars

The growing need for safety and comfort for long distance travelling by the public is leading to the significant demand for enhanced luxury buses and passenger cars. The increasing investments by major automotive companies such as Continental AG, ThyssenKrupp, Volkswagen and so on for the production of luxury vehicles is leading to need for air suspension systems for providing smooth and comfort travelling experience to the passenger. Thus, the growing usage of luxury buses and passenger cars is favoring market growth of air suspension.

Increasing advancement in Vehicle Technology

The development of autonomous vehicle technology is also the major factor that is boosting the air suspension market. Automotive giants are investing huge amounts for the transformation of the automotive industry and leading to introduction of latest technology in the field of air suspension for light and heavy duty vehicles. The demand for electronically and non-electronically air suspension technology to enhance vehicular traction performance and provide ride height as well as loading flexibility is rising. At present, countries such as Germany, China and India are looking towards the use the latest technology and are upgrading towards the use of luxury vehicles which will further boost the adoption of air suspension system.

Air Suspension Market Challenges

High Maintenance and Installation Cost

The shift towards the use of advanced technology such as ECAS system in vehicles leads to high cost. The cost of installation for air suspension system is high for medium-priced vehicles which are commonly preferred by customers. Therefore, the increasing sales of medium priced vehicles will hinder the growth of the air suspension market. 

Air Suspension Market Landscape

Technology launches, acquisitions and R&D activities are key strategies adopted by players in the air suspension market. In 2020, the market of air suspension has been consolidated by the top ten players - Continental AG, ThyssenKrupp AG, Firestone Industrial Products, Hitachi Ltd., SAF-Holland, Hendrickson International Corporation, Accuair Suspension, Mando Corporation and Wabco Holdings Inc.

Acquisitions/Technology Launches

  • In June 2019, ZF Friedrichshafen AG, a leading supplier for passenger cars, commercial vehicles and industrial technology acquired Wabco Holdings for $136.65 per share. The acquisition considerably will expand Wabco’s capabilities in providing commercial vehicle safety and efficiency. This acquisition will also combine technologies such as vehicle dynamics control, active air suspension systems.
  • In May 2019, Ridetech, a provider of high performance suspension components and systems announced its acquisition by Fox Factory Holdings Corp. This acquisition will expand the innovation and technological developments by Ridetech under Fox’s ownership. This will also lead to the expansion of wide range of premium products such as air suspension systems (air ride), coil-overs, shock absorbers, tubular control arms and others.
