Single piece propeller is estimated to hold the largest share in automotive propeller shaft segment

Single-piece propeller shaft dominates the automotive propeller shaft market during the forecast period. The factors that drive the growth of this segment are cost-effectiveness as well as its overall durability. The single-piece propeller shaft is used more than the multi-piece propeller shaft majorly because of its lightweight capabilities that provide high fuel efficiency. The single-piece propeller shaft becomes an ideal choice for the shorter distance between the engine and the rear axle. The demand for the sport utility vehicle segment is rising mainly in the US, China, and India, owing to the improving economic environment, low crude oil prices, and rising per capita income. This will prompt the demand for rear-wheel-drive vehicles, which are usually installed with the single-piece shaft, and subsequently, the growth of SUVs would also foster the demand for single-piece propeller shaft in the future.
