Market Overview

The automotive hydraulic systems market is expected to register a CAGR of over 5%, during the forecast period (2020 - 2025).

The low cost at which hydraulic systems can be fit into vehicles is a major advantage and has proven to be one of the most important factors in driving the market. Hydraulic systems can store and discharge energy more efficiently than electric batteries. Vehicles that require a lot of power are finding hydraulic hybrid drives to be more efficient than electric drives. The most common use of the hydraulic systems in an automobile is power steering, shock absorbers, and brakes.

With the increase in activities of logistics, due to the expansion of the industrial sector in the emerging markets, and the tourism sector, the demand for commercial vehicles is expected to increase, which, in turn, is likely to increase the demand for hydraulic systems.

Key Market Trends

Increasing Demand for Commercial Vehicle is Expected to Drive the Market

  • In the global automotive hydraulics systems market, commercial vehicles is expected to dominate the market.
  • The increasing number of construction and e-commerce activities, due to the expansion of the industrial sector across the world, resulted in demand for material transportation, which, in turn, increased the sales of commercial vehicles. This is likely to drive the automotive hydraulic systems market.
  • Commercial vehicles are continuously subjected to heavy loads for long distances, throughout the year. This requires the vehicle to be equipped with systems, which are able to withstand heavy loads, without compromising fuel economy and power output.
  • Hydraulic systems are simple, safe, and economic because they have fewer moving parts as compared to electric systems. This provides hydraulic systems an edge over electric systems and passenger vehicles are expected to be subjected to electrification in the near future. Commercial vehicles are anticipated to use hydraulic systems, which may enable them to occupy a significant market share for hydraulic systems, during the forecast period.
Automotive hydraulic systems market Key Trends

Asia-Pacific is Expected to Witness Highest CAGR

  • In the market studied, the growth of the Asia-Pacific region is expected to be more, during the forecast period. China is the biggest automotive market in the world. The growing Chinese economy and the growing disposable incomes of people in the country have increased the demand for vehicles in the country. 
  • Additionally, the low production costs in China have favored the growth of vehicle manufacturing in China. In China, the sales of commercial vehicles have grown, from 4.1 million in 2017 to 4.3 million in 2018. Electrification in the Asia-Pacific region witnessed a high penetration rate, due to the presence of China and Japan, as China is the leading market for electric vehicles and most of the automakers advancing in electric vehicle technology are from Japan. Sales of electric vehicles in China has seen huge growth as compared to other countries in Asia-Pacific.
  • North America has also witnessed a high growth in sales of commercial vehicles. The sales of commercial vehicles in 2017 were 11.4 million, which increased to 12.3 million units. Thus, giving a boost to the automotive hydraulic systems market.
