An automotive steering member or system is an important link between the driver and the vehicle, as it enables the driver to control and maneuver the vehicle. The steering member helps the driver to control the vehicle and perform various maneuvers such as turning. Several major technological developments have taken place in the automotive steering member system since its inception. Presently, vehicles are equipped with various active safety systems, such as anti-lock braking system (ABS) and electronic stability program (ESP), while the steering member plays a crucial role in the vehicle’s safety as it is majorly responsible for the movement of the vehicle in any direction.

The global automotive steering member market is expected to expand during the forecast period due to an increase in the demand for vehicles, as it is a major component in the vehicle. New technologies are being introduced in the automotive steering system to increase the efficiency, control, and maneuverability of the vehicle. Major drivers of the automotive steering member market are increasing demand for new technology steering member system, such as electric, hydraulic, and electro-hydraulic components along with mechanical components of the steering member, which enable the driver to effortlessly steer and maneuver the vehicle in tough situations. A major restraint of the automotive steering member market is the high cost associated with the manufacturing of power steering.
