Automotive propeller shaft is one of the most crucial components in the automotive drivetrain system, as the component is responsible for transmitting engine torque to the automotive wheels, which finally turns into motion of the vehicle. Propeller shaft is a key component deciding the performance of the vehicle, thus design and development of automotive propeller shaft must be done with high precision. Due to this factor, which is further supplemented by the existing regulatory atmosphere in automotive industry focused on lightweight and increased fuel efficiency, propeller shaft manufacturers invest heavily in research and development for innovating new products. The global automotive propeller shaft market is expected to witness healthy upsurge in sales, owing to robustly growing demand for new vehicles. Light weighting of propeller shaft is presently the prime focus of propeller shaft manufacturers, the lightweight shafts will not only improve fuel efficiency but also enhance driving experience, this trend has brought hollow shafts into limelight and significant growth is expected in hollow shafts segment. The manufacturers are focusing on introducing new and advanced materials, which could significantly reduce weight of the shafts.
