Increasing Demand for Lightweight Vehicles Augmenting Market Growth 

The rise in demand for commercial vehicles especially from developing nations, especially China and India is promoting the automotive axle market growth. There is also the rise in demand for heavy-duty lifting operations, which are carried out by heavy commercial vehicles with lift axle installed in them. This increase is anticipated to help the market attract high revenue in the coming years.

Another factor boosting the global automotive axle market are rise in sale of hybrid and electric vehicles. Owing to this, the demand for lightweight axle is on the rise. Strict environmental regulations imposed by various governments are promoting the growth of hybrid and electric vehicles.
