A suspension system is one of the most important systems of an automobile. Automobile suspension is a system that connects a vehicle to its wheels and allows relative motion between the two. It consists of tires, tire air, springs, shock absorbers, and linkages. Suspensions help to keep the vehicle tires in contact with the asphalt during the trip, reducing shocks and protecting the vehicle and its load from wear and tear or damage. Any vehicle with four wheels and all-wheel-drive (4WD/AWD) needs suspension for the front and rear wheels, however, two-wheel-drive vehicles may have a distinctive setup.
A comfortable journey promotes comfort for passengers, prevents cargo damage, and decreases road accidents, particularly long excursions. Suspension is in control of ride comfort and vehicle operating control, since vehicles with stiff suspension may result in better control over physique motions and faster reactions. Emergency vehicles have a specific requirement for improved vehicle suspension in order to prevent already ill passengers from any more injury. These factors have contributed to the need for better driving comfort, which has benefited the global automotive suspension market growth.
COVID-19 Impact Automotive Suspension Market
The COVID-19 pandemic had a negative impact on the automotive suspension market. In 2020, automotive and truck sales were down, and companies that manufacture vehicles and related components were temporarily shut down. Even so, as the number of cases has decreased, production lines have resumed operations, and vehicle sales have grown throughout major market segments.

Key Driving Factors
The rapid growth in electric vehicle usage in developed markets, as well as the development of the automotive industry in developing markets, is likely to drive global demand for the automotive suspension market. The global demand for sophisticated multilink suspensions is being driven by the growing popularity of SUVs and compact SUVs among end-users in both developed and developing nations. Furthermore, rising vehicle sales globally as a consequence of higher standards of living and disposable money among the majority of the population is expected to have a significantly positive impact on the market throughout the forecast period. Furthermore, increased usage of such automated processes for better implementation and improved reliability is expected to propel market expansion over the forecast period.
The increasing introduction of electric and self-driving vehicles for public and personal transportation is anticipated to develop new revenue potential for the automotive suspension market. Furthermore, severe driving conditions in some developing and industrialized nations demand vehicles with effective suspension systems. As a result, their rising demand fuels the global automotive suspension market expansion.
The high cost of installing new or sophisticated suspension systems results in an increase in purchase cost, which is predicted to constrain the expansion of the automotive suspension market. Also, because of the numerous components and sensors, such vehicles are difficult to maintain and require the use of experienced personnel. The complexity of system structure affects vehicle service life. As a result, the high initial cost and complex system are predicted to have an adverse influence on the global automotive suspension market development.
System Type Insights
The active segment is dominating the market with the largest revenue share over the forecast period.
On the basis of system type, the global automotive suspension market is segmented active, passive, and semi-active. Among these, the active segment is dominating the market with the largest revenue share of 42.7% over the projection period. This mechanism regulates the vertical motion of the vehicle's wheels in relation to the vehicle's frame or structure. A major factor that is driving demand for active suspension systems is the increased desire to enhance driving dynamics and passenger comfort. Active suspension systems are mostly used in high-end luxury and sports cars, as well as select mid-range cars and a few commercial vehicles. The active suspension system is the most expensive but also the most modern and comfortable suspension.
Component Type Insights
The shock dampener segment accounted the largest market share over the forecast period.
On the basis of component type, the global automotive suspension market is segmented into shock dampener, leaf spring, struts, control arm, spring, ball joint, air compressor, and others. Among these, the shock dampener segment is dominating the market and is going to continue its dominance over the forecast period. Shock dampers reduce vibrations and improve ride quality in a variety of road situations. As a result, their growing demands for a wide range of uses, such as commercial transportation, combat vehicles, and others, are likely to drive segment expansion. Shock dampeners market growth is expected to develop as a result of rising manufacturer emphasis on enhancing the dampening capability of the suspension of a vehicle.
Suspension Type Insights
The hydraulic suspension segment is dominating the market with the largest revenue share over the forecast period.
On the basis of suspension type, the global automotive suspension market is segmented into hydraulic suspension, air suspension, and leaf spring. Among these, the hydraulic suspension segment is dominating the market with the largest revenue share of 35.5% over the forecast period. In the automotive sector, hydraulic suspensions are widely used. In comparison to air or leaf spring suspensions, hydraulic suspensions can adapt rapidly. In comparison to other suspension types, they offer a smoother and more comfortable ride. With independent shocks, the system also provides total customization to the users. Over the forecast period, the air suspension category is predicted to experience a significant CAGR growth. Air suspension is mostly used in military vehicles, luxury vehicles, commercial trucks, and buses. Also, air suspension is less expensive than hydraulic suspension.
