Global Automotive Active Suspension Market - Introduction

Automotive active/dynamic suspension is an upgraded/advanced version of the mechanical or conventional suspension system used in vehicles. The automotive active suspension is utilized in vehicles to damp vibration and shocks generated during a ride. The automotive active suspension system adjusts automatically according to the road conditions and dampens shocks and vibrations. The suspension settings in the automotive active suspension system are crucial to experience a smooth and comfortable ride. This a key factor driving the preference for active suspension systems over conventional type suspension systems. Active suspension systems are majorly incorporated in high-end vehicles, as the cost of these suspension systems is comparatively higher than that of conventional suspension systems. Majority of luxury and premium vehicles are fitted with the active suspension systems.

The global automotive active suspension market is expected to expand, owing to increasing adoption of advanced technologies in vehicles by the automotive industry. Rise in demand and adoption of improved and advance technology vehicles is anticipated to boost the demand for automotive active suspension. Rise in incorporation of safety systems in automobiles is also projected to drive the adoption of automotive active suspension in the next few years.

Global Automotive Active Suspension Market – Dynamics

Rising demand for self-adjustable and improved automotive suspension system

Uneven terrain and poor road conditions offer major challenges to automakers in terms of safety and ride comfort for the driver. The suspension system reduces unwanted vibrations generated by uneven terrain or poor road conditions, which can damage vehicle components and hamper ride comfort and stability. Automotive active suspension systems help stabilize the vehicle during braking, acceleration, and cornering. The ability of the system to improve stability and safety on bumpy or uneven terrain is anticipated to boost the demand for automotive active suspension systems in the near future.
