Automotive Spring Aftermarket: Introduction

Whichever vehicle you ride, the suspension system will always perform the same function, which is to eliminate the shock transferred through rear and front wheels as they travel on uneven and rough surfaces. By absorbing the shock from uneven and rough terrains, an automotive spring system decreases the strain and stress that would otherwise impact the rider and other vehicle parts. The suspension system was initially developed in the start of the 20th century in order to reduce the effect of shock and hence, prevent it from negatively impacting riding comfort. Over a period of time, as automobiles are becoming more powerful and efficient, advanced suspension systems have been developed to improve riding performance and capability. This was lacking for several years due to the intense focus on engine development.    

Collectively, the front and rear suspension systems in any vehicle play a vital role in controlling the vehicle on uneven tracks, thereby enhancing the riding experience to a whole new level. Automotive spring technology and design has come a long way in recent years, mainly owing to development transfer from the world of racing wherein vehicles and their riders are subjected to extreme conditions. Consequently, today’s off-road and road riders gain a lot from highly sophisticated rear and front suspension systems, which offer high traction on road and remarkable levels of comfort for the driver. There are three major factors that influence the features of a vehicle’s suspension, namely dampers, springs and un-sprung/sprung mass. A typical automotive spring system comprises a couple of conventional fork tubes for the front suspension and swing arms for the rear suspension, which consists of one or two shock absorbers in case of motorcycles and leaf springs in case of LCVs and HCVs in the global market. The most common type of front suspension system currently used in motorcycles is the telescopic fork. This fork can be effortlessly understood as a big hydraulic shock absorber with an internal coil spring attached to it. It permits the front wheel to react to inadequacies of the uneven road while insulating the rest of the motorcycle from that motion. For passenger cars, LCVs and HCVs, a combination of springs and shock absorbers are used. Commonly used springs are leaf springs, coil springs and torsion bean suspension and hydraulic shock absorbers are prominent in the passenger car segment in the global market. Automotive springs are one of the prominent aftermarket components in the global automotive market as they have a good replacement rate and hence, by sales channel, the aftermarket segment is estimated to grow with a prominent pace over the forecast period in the global market
