Future Market Insights
Spring Shackles are an integral part of leaf spring suspension system of an automobile where it is used to connect the suspension system to the chassis via an eye spring bolt. Spring shackles form a leverage allow the changes of length in during the compression and release of a leaf spring. As the leaf arches up and down due to the load from the vehicle its length changes. Since one end of the spring is rigidly mounted on the frame of the vehicle, total change in length is completely accommodated by the spring shackles. Moreover, spring shackles provide stability to the suspension system under dynamic loading and lift the suspension system of the vehicle for slicker off-road applications. Spring shackle flip is one of the method adopted for lifting the vehicle, wherein it is flipped from its position so as to lift the vehicle. The angle at which the spring shackles are installed can have an impact on the compression, spring flex, comfort and handling capabilities of the vehicle. Spring Shackles are generally made up of stamped steel, but many aftermarket manufacturers use different materials for manufacturing spring shackles in order to cater different operating conditions.
Spring Shackles Market Dynamics
Owing to their economic characteristics and improved load bearing capacity, leaf spring suspension systems are extensively used in light commercial and heavy commercial vehicles which in turn is expected to drive the market in an upward scale in the forecast period. Moreover, leaf spring suspension system are also impervious to wear and tear and have low maintenance cost, making them a preferred choice for many high load bearing vehicles supplementing the growth of the market even further. Technological developments in the automobile industry have led to introduction of many new and amended spring shackles which are longer in length and assist in precise handling, increasing wheel travel and improving the driver comfort, aiding in further augmentation of spring shackles market.
Application of spring shackles in passenger cars is close to becoming obsolete due to meagre assistance and lack of steering feel during cornering, which in turn could hamper the growth of the market in the upcoming years. Furthermore, problems associated with bending of spring shackles also limit their applications, thus restraining the expected growth of spring shackles market.
Light weight zinc plated replacement spring shackles are being extensively employed for improved load distribution and spring flex. Furthermore, conventional spring shackles are being replaced by the sliding spring shackles in the present market scenario.
