Sales of Automotive and Off-Road Vehicle Hoses in 2016 to 2020 Vs Projections for 2021 to 2031

Historically from 2016 to 2020, use of automotive and off-road vehicle hoses has witnessed declined growth at - 2.3% CAGR, mainly due to the COVID-19 pandemic that devastated automotive industry growth in 2020.

On a global scale, automotives costs have increased significantly due to rising raw material cost over the past few years, which can be attributed to rising expenditure on R&D activities conducted by major players in the automotive industry. The main traits of automotive hoses are hollow pipes that are used for fluid transfer in vehicle engines.

Earlier, manufacturers did not have a variety of options for hose materials, and hence, rubber reinforced with other materials such as plastic or polymer was used by hose manufacturers. Rubber, as a hose material, is still popular among manufacturers, but now, many are using other materials that are lightweight and provide excellent chemical resistance and high temperature resistance,such as nylon, fluoropolymer, silicone infused with rubber, and metal.

Manufacturers are looking at material innovation as an expansion strategy to attract more customers. It is very important for car manufacturers to provide comfort, safety, and reliability to users. As these automotive parts ensure smooth functioning of the vehicle, it is important for automotive hose manufacturers to adhere to the needs of their customers and provide high-quality parts.

Considering these statistics and shift in dynamics, the market for automotive and off-road vehicle hoses is forecast to expandata healthy 5.4% CAGR over the coming 10 years. Demand for brake hoses and coolant hoses has been rising rapidly over the years, while demand for fuel hoses is expected to steadily increase over the coming years.

What are the Roadblocks for Automotive and Off-Road Vehicle Hose Suppliers?

Automotive and off-road vehicle hose suppliers have been struggling with counterfeit products and supply of components through grey market trading. Counterfeit products lack quality and are a threat to vehicle and consumer safety.

With increasing stringent regulatory standards for automotive hoses, companies often use standard products by OEMs. Automotive manufacturing companies are not happy due to the additional cost of investment in research & development. This has had a ripple effect on overall product pricing of automotive and off-road vehicle hoses.

Will Sales of Automotive and Off-Road Vehicle Hoses Gain Traction Due to Rising Demand for Electric Vehicles?

EVs are becoming popular and increasing in number day by day in terms of production and sales. Electric hybrid vehicles require different types of hoses and fluid transfer systems. EVs draw power from large batteries that generate energy. Manufacturers use longer and narrower hoses for EVs than traditional automotive hoses.

EVs are equipped with battery cooling hose systems thatare around four meters long. The line for the battery cooling system in hybrid and electric cars is laid in the car’s underfloor section. It is one of the major and important hose assembly systems in EVs.

Several manufacturers have launched new hoses for EVs in the past few years. These hoses have gained traction as they cater to changing consumer preferences with respect to application. These product launches have resulted due to changing OEM behavior regarding the use of products specific to vehicle categories.

Thus, automotive and off-road vehicle hose manufacturers are aiming to market their products for various vehicle types with altered technologies in the automotive industry.
