The global automotive door hinges market size was valued at USD 12.14 billion in 2023. The market is expected to grow from USD 13.25 billion in 2024 to USD 28.83 billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 10.2% during the forecast period.


An automotive hinge is a motorized bearing that links the automotive vehicle components, such as a trunk or tailgate, doors, hood, or fuel cap, to the automotive body. The automotive door hinges allow several operations, such as opening a door or hood at a definite angle to the vehicle body. The two automotive machineries connected by the automotive door hinges revolve relatively around a fixed axis of rotation. The market contains the production, sales, and distribution of various door hinges designed for vehicles, including cars, vans, and commercial vehicles. The global market is anticipated to grow sustainably due to increasing vehicle production and sales.


Automotive manufacturers reduced or temporarily halted the production in response to reduced demand for passenger and commercial vehicles during the COVID-19 pandemic. This resulted in decreased demand for door hinges used in new vehicles. The pandemic's economic challenges also reduced consumer spending, impacting vehicle sales. This factor negatively affected the demand for vehicle door hinges.


Automotive Door Hinges Market Trends


Integration of Light Weight Materials in Next-Generation Vehicles to Drive Market Growth


The increased focus from automotive market players toward reducing the overall weight of the next-generation vehicle has induced an additional demand for combining automotive components built from lightweight material. Combining lighter materials, which deliver more or less the same durability and safety, has additional benefits involving faster speeds, higher agility, and increased fuel efficiency. It decreases the power intensity required to move a vehicle, resulting in lower carbon emissions, ultimately contributing towards sustainability.


Aluminium hinges provide enhanced product life due to their high resistance to endure the force and provide higher durability. Moreover, aluminium's additional benefits involve low cost, higher rust resistance, and lightweight, making it highly suitable for vehicle door hinges. For instance, in 2023, Mercedes-Benz selected Edscha Holding GmbH to supply its door hinges for its E-class and 7-Series models manufactured in Germany and selling all over Europe. Similarly, in 2022 and 2021, Edscha Holding GmbH delivered its automotive door hinges for its A3 models for Audi and i4 and iX models for BMW, manufacturing in Germany. Thus, with major OEM players globally focusing on increasing vehicle efficiency and safety, implementing high-strength and lightweight materials for door hinges is expected to shape the market for automotive door hinges.

Automotive Door Hinges Market Growth Factors


Surging Electric Vehicle Production and Sales to Propel Market Growth


Automotive door hinges are highly essential components in automobiles. The door hinges allow vehicles (passenger & commercial) to open and close and hold them to the vehicle. The hinges are located where the door attaches to the frame. Therefore, a steady growth in electric vehicle production and sales is influencing the demand for high-quality door hinges.


Additionally, expanding electric vehicle models and types coupled with adopting technologically advanced battery systems to cater to the diverse consumer demands is fueling the adoption of door hinges and is expected to accelerate the automotive door hinges market growth. For instance, in February 2023, BYD added two new dealer corporations to its network in Europe. Motor Distributors Ltd (MDL) is active in Ireland and will offer BYD models at select locations, including Dublin and Cork. With whom BYD already works in Norway, RSA is a dealer with whom it will offer Chinese-made EVs in Finland and Iceland.


RESTRAINING FACTORS


Shortage of Raw Material Availability and Price Fluctuation May Restrain Market Growth


The door hinges are made from various materials, including steel, aluminum, brass, and bronze. The fluctuation in raw materials prices, such as steel, aluminum, or specialized alloys, can significantly impact the overall production cost of automotive doors. Hence, due to material cost variation, manufacturers struggle to maintain competitive pricing in the market, resulting in reduced demand for door hinges among automakers and aftermarkets.


Hinges have long replacement cycles due to their strength and robust design compared to other imitated auto components. Therefore, cost fluctuation due to material cost variation influences customers to delay the purchase of the door hinges, significantly restraining the market growth in upcoming years. Moreover, OEM/manufacturers may consider substituting material or low-quality alternatives to mitigate the impact of rising material costs. This can affect the quality and safety of automotive doors, leading to consumer dissatisfaction or regular issues. This may hamper the market growth during the forecast period.
