A crankshaft performs the task of converting reciprocating motion to rotational motion. It is the link between the input and output of the vehicle and the reason why the car gains its movement. On the other hand, in a reciprocating compressor, a crankshaft converts the rotational motion into reciprocating motion. The crankshaft uses crank throws or crankpins to make these conversions. Crankshafts are an exceptionally important part of an engine as they transmit power to drive wheels.

The global automotive crankshaft market is segmented on the basis of vehicle, type of crankshaft, material, and geography. The vehicles using automotive crankshafts are heavy commercial vehicles, passenger vehicles, light commercial vehicles, MUVs, SUVs, and others. The types of crankshafts being used are cross plane and flat plane. The materials used for making these are forged steel, cast iron, and others. Geographically, this market is segmented into Europe, Asia Pacific, North America, and Rest of the World.

Of all the types of vehicles, the passenger vehicle segment was the biggest consumer of automotive crankshafts 2014.
