Introduction to Automotive Adaptive Suspension System

Suspension system in the automotive industry is  a tool used to minimize the shock absorbed by the body of the vehicle, while moving on a surface. The prime goal of the automotive adaptive suspension system is to keep the tires in constant contact with the surface, regardless of the contours that comes through its way.

Springs are a key component of the automotive adaptive suspension system. It is classified into leaf springs, coil springs and torsion bars. Most of the light commercial vehicles use coil and leaf springs, while passenger vehicles use light coil springs in their automotive adaptive suspension systems. Leaf springs or air suspension are being used in heavy commercial vehicles.

Technical advances in automotive adaptive suspension systems has resulted into the innovation of electrical generator suspension and Magic Body Control® suspension. Electrical generator suspension is in its nascent phase and serves its usual purpose of absorbing shock, along with generation of energy needs of the vehicle.

The Magic Body Control® is a registered technology owned by Mercedes Benz, used especially in its S-class vehicles. This suspension system uses stereo camera installed in the windshield or rear view mirrors. It uses sensors to analyze the front surface, up to a distance of 50 meters. The microprocessor uses these data to adjust the vehicle’s suspension, providing the rider an extra edge by maximizing its comfort levels.

Market Size And Forecast

In a report stated by Organisation Internationale des Constructeurs d’Automobiles (OICA), which is the international organization of motor vehicle manufacturers, an international trade association of thirty nine members of national automotive industry, reported that sales of passenger vehicles of the world increased from 49.7 million in 2009 to 68.7 million in 2018, growing at average annual rate of 3.74%, whereas sales of  commercial vehicles of the world increased from 15.9 million in 2009 to 26.4 million in 2018, growing at an average annual rate of 5.89%.

The market of automotive adaptive suspension system market is observing vibrant growth on account of increasing number of automobiles sold globally.  Additionally, rising demand for regenerative lightweight suspension systems that increases rider comfort levels in a vehicle is another major factor propelling the growth of the automotive adaptive suspension system market.

Growth Drivers

Rising Need For Advanced Suspension Systems

Vehicles in the twentieth century have observed rapid technological advancements. Hunger for comfort, luxury, driving passion and best in class riding performances, combined with increasing disposable incomes to purchase premium category passenger vehicles  have driven the demand for advanced suspension systems in the automotive adaptive suspension system market over the forecast period.

Rising Demand For Increasing Safety Standards

Governments of various economies have come up with stringent rules and regulations keeping in mind the necessity to ensure safety of vehicles  . Dynamic changes taking place in safety regulations, such as the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS), Canada Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (CMVSS), Bharat New Vehicle Safety Assessment Program (BNVSAP) and others over time has resulted in the growing need for advanced safety systems. This factor is  anticipated to fuel the growth of the automotive adaptive suspension system market throughout the forecast period.


High Price Of Automotive Suspension Systems

Availability of automotive adaptive suspension system in a vehicle denotes its luxury, comfort and safety. It is highly improbable that the majority of the mass population can afford the purchase  such high priced vehicles with advanced technology, owing to the fact that they are meant for luxury. Manufacturing enterprises have psychologically applied premium pricing models to their suspension systems as a measure of differentiating from their competitors. Thus, the factor of rising cost is anticipated to act as a barrier to the growth of the automotive adaptive suspension system market during the forecast period.
