Global Steering Knuckle & Stub Axle Market: Overview

Steering knuckle is a component connected to the front wheel of the vehicle linked via suspension system, providing motion on the directions of the steering systems. The automotive industry is currently experiencing the major two demands namely light weight  design and lower fuel consumption. The steering knuckle & stub are designed considering at these demands, which offers high power and low vibrations. On turning the steering, the steering knuckle is exposed to various loads such as tensile load, compressive load, torsional loads etc. Thus, the steering knuckle are designed with properties such as inflexibility, toughness and light in weight. The stub axel is an axel which limits the angular movement for steering system of the vehicle. The stub axel are of four type namely elliot, reserved elliot, lamoine, and reserved lamoine. The steering knuckle & stub axel are manufactured either by forging or casting methods with raw material such as steel (mild steel, cast steel), alluminum and alloys. The steering knuckle & stub axel market is primarily dependent on the growth of both automotive and auto components industry.

Global Steering Knuckle & Stub Axle Market: Drivers and Restraints:

The steering knuckle & stub axel are the critical components of the steering and suspension systems. Their functions are directly proportional to the drivers steering movements. The growing automotive industry majorly drives the global steering & stub axle market. Further, the reduction in the excise duties strengthens the auto components industry and also impetuses the revenue generation of steering knuckle & stub axel manufacturers.

However, some of the challenges in steering knuckle & stub axel are high machining & maintenance costs, lower automation in manufacturing, inventory management challenges (lack of transparency in the supply chain, demand variability, high response time etc.). These challenges restrict the further growth of steering knuckle & stub axle market.
