    Automotive Leaf Spring Aftermarket: Highlights

    Leaf spring is one of the oldest suspension components and is still being preferred in most of the LCVs and MHCVs. The automotive industry has witnessed a remarkable transition in the leaf spring technology, material, style, design, etc. over a period of time. There are countless styles of leaf-spring suspension available worldwide featuring different mounting points, shapes, and sizes. Leaf spring has to be replaced frequently, generally in 9-12 months, due to the damages like sag, break, and crack, caused by several factors including uneven road and excess load on the vehicle.

    The global automotive leaf spring aftermarket is likely to witness a healthy growth rate over the next five years to reach an estimated value of US$ 1,998.8 million in 2024. Increasing automotive fleet size is the key driver of the leaf spring aftermarket demand. Organic growth in automobile production owing to increasing disposable income and growing urbanization, is also imprinting a positive impact on the future demand for leaf springs in the aftermarket segment.

    The leaf spring aftermarket is segmented based on the vehicle type as Passenger Car, LCV, M&HCV, and Other Vehicles. M&HCV is expected to remain the growth engine of the aftermarket during the forecast period owing to a higher penetration of leaf springs in the segment. Also, there is a frequent replacement of leaf springs in M&HCV due to higher loads carried by the vehicle.

    Based on the spring type, the market is segmented as parabolic leaf spring and multi-leaf spring.  Multi-leaf spring is expected to remain the dominant spring type in the aftermarket during the forecast period, whereas parabolic leaf spring is expected to experience a higher growth during the same period.

    Based on the location type, the market is segmented as front suspension and rear suspension. Rear suspension is expected to remain the most dominant segment during the forecast period. High penetration of leaf spring in the rear suspension of LCV, M&HCV, and trailers drives a higher replacement demand for leaf springs. Both front and rear leaf suspension are expected to experience similar growth rates with a marginal difference over the next five years.

    In terms of region, Asia-Pacific is expected to remain the largest leaf spring aftermarket with an impressive CAGR during the forecast period. An increased vehicle production and growing fleet size would drive the demand for leaf springs in the region over the next five years. China and India are the growth engines of the Asia-Pacific’s aftermarket for leaf springs.
