Automotive Bushing Market: Introduction:
An automotive bushing in a vehicle works as a shock absorber and provides a smooth interface, damping the vibrations and noise created from the moving parts. The mandated compliance standards of NVH (Noise, Vibration & Harshness) for a vehicle makes it essential to use an automotive bushing to reduce the noise and vibrations. An automotive bushing is generally made of rubber, which can be synthetic rubber or natural rubber. A synthetic rubber automotive bushing is generally used by original equipment manufacturers in vehicles, and best suited for noise reduction, providing a comfortable ride. Furthermore, polyurethane automotive bushings are used for high performance applications, and provide more durability as compared to natural rubber or other synthetic rubber bushings such as styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR), nitrile rubber, etc.
Furthermore, automotive bushings have a wide range of applications in vehicles, such as they are majorly used in a vehicle’s suspension system. When a vehicle travels over a bump, the automotive bushing can absorb the shock, providing a smooth and comfortable ride. In engine and transmission systems, automotive bushings are used to absorb the vibrations and noise created due to motion of the system.
Automotive Bushing Market: Dynamics:
In the growing automotive industry, vehicle manufacturers have to meet the set NVH standards in vehicles. Owing to this, the demand for automotive bushings is expected to increase at a significant rate over the forecast period. Furthermore, new vehicles are coming into the market with more advanced technologies and increased levels of comfort. Additionally, a premium vehicle normally requires more number of automotive bushings to make the ride more efficient and smooth. The rising demand for comfortable, safe, and premium vehicles is expected to drive the market of automotive bushings.
However, the replacement process for automotive bushings in a vehicle is very tedious and complex. Furthermore, polyurethane automotive bushings do not provide a high level of comfort and noise reduction. This is expected to hamper the growth of the automotive bushing market over the forecast period.
