Global Automotive Driveshaft Market To Reach $ 7.5 billion by 2026
A drive shaft is a rotating shaft that transmits drive to the wheels. The drive shaft is also referred to as the drive shaft or the drive shaft or the cardan shaft. The driveshaft is a rotating tube that connects to the rear of the transmission and transmits rotational power to the rear of the vehicle. Automotive driveshafts are enjoying increasing adoption due to their many advantages over conventional components. These drive shafts offer automakers the ability to incorporate lightweight components to reduce vehicle weight, improve fuel efficiency, and comply with regulatory guidelines. The global automotive drive shafts market is expected to grow rapidly, supported by a recovering automotive industry and the implementation of strict regulations regarding energy efficiency and environmental protection. The presence of several manufacturers and suppliers offering both OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturers) and aftermarket products ensures a continuous supply of drive shafts and business growth for these companies. The demand for drive shafts is also driven by increasing automobile traffic and increasing vehicle production.
