Future Market Insights
Automotive door hinges are among the basic structural components of an automotive; they support door weight and facilitate operation, i.e. opening and closing movements of doors, tailgates and hoods. Automotive door hinges are generally manufactured using the sheet metal stamping process, which utilizes large capacity presses to manufacture these components. Automotive door hinges are usually manufactured from stainless steel; various grades of steel are selected depending upon the type of the vehicle and area of application. Apart from steel, various other materials are also used in the manufacturing of automotive door hinges, including copper, brass and sometimes bronze, however the application remains limited. The basic and the most crucial requirement of automotive hinges is protection against corrosion. Automotive door hinges must have good anti-corrosion properties, which in turn ensures long life of hinges and consequently, that of turn doors and gates. Automotive door hinges are usually coated to provide a long lasting finish. They have high operational life and hence, a low replacement rate. The automotive door hinges market is foreseen to witness moderate and steady growth over the forecast period. The market for automotive door hinges is highly fragmented, with unorganized players contributing to a major share of the market
