Crankshaft is a mechanical device and heart of an automotive engine. It has the ability to convert linear reciprocating motion of piston to a rotary motion for engine power transmission. These are widely used in automotive field, such as in cars, trucks, trains and in other automobiles. Without crankshaft it would not be possible for a vehicle to move even inch, since it is the main link between input powers to the output powers. Further, automotive crankshaft has multiple applications in different sectors such as automobile sector, industrial machinery sector and in printing devices. Moreover, the soaring demand for high end performance vehicles with high end performing engines, change in lifestyle of the consumers guided them to demand for better products along with rising disposable income are also expected to propel the growth of the automotive crankshaft market in a very positive way. According to the Bureau of Economic Analysis, personal income rose by USD 47.0 billion (0.2%) and disposable personal income by USD 37.6 billion (0.2%) in July 2022.
