The Mature Category to Enjoy Incremental Growth

This research service provides an overview of the North American ride control components aftermarket. It includes unit shipment and revenue forecasts, percent of revenue by product type, pricing analysis, distribution channel analysis, and market share analysis. The base year is 2013, the historical data is presented for 2009 through 2012, and the forecast period is 2014 through 2020. In the forecast period, the research service examines unit shipments, pricings, and revenues. Additionally, two segments are looked at specifically. These are the standard replacement ride control aftermarket and the performance ride control aftermarket.

Product Definitions

Shock Absorber
-A shock absorber is essentially an oil pump located between the frame and the wheels of the car. The upper mount of the shock is connected to the frame, while the lower mount is attached to the axle, adjacent to the wheel.
-Shock absorbers help in slowing down and reducing the extent of the vehicle’s vibratory motions by converting the kinetic energy of suspension movement into heat energy which is dissipated through hydraulic fluid.
-Light trucks are equipped with four shock absorbers—two on the front suspension and two in the rear suspension. Passenger cars are equipped with shock absorbers only on the rear suspension.
-Shock absorbers are sold individually. One unit equals one shock absorber.

Strut
-A strut is fundamentally a shock absorber mounted inside a coil spring. Their function is similar to that of a shock absorber as they control and diminish the motion of a vehicle’s suspension while providing structural support to the suspension at the same time.
-Passenger cars are equipped with struts on the front suspension. Pre-assembled struts—which include the coil spring, bearing plate, upper and lower spring isolators, upper spring seat and strut boot—are included in this category.
-Struts are sold individually. One unit equals one strut.

Coil Spring
-Coil springs are composed of alloy steel and primary function is includes absorbing the motion of the wheels by compressing and expanding. Worn or sagging coil springs can cause premature tire wear due to vehicle misalignment.
-They are made of alloy steel and located over the upper mount of the shock absorber or strut connecting to the frame of the vehicle.
-Some truck suspensions feature a leaf spring—which comprises of multiple layers of metal bound in a single unit—in place a coil spring. Leaf springs are not considered in this analysis.
-Coil springs are typically sold in pairs. However, one unit equals one coil spring for the purposes of this analysis.

Strut Mount
-The strut mount helps as the mounting point for the top of a vehicle’s strut assemblies to connect to the vehicle’s chassis. Ideally, it should be replaced along with a new strut assembly, but usually they are not sold together.
-Vehicles having four-wheel-independent suspension are equipped with four strut mounts. Two each in the front and in the rear. Vehicles with independent front suspension are only equipped with two strut mounts.
-Strut mounts are sold individually. One unit equals one strut mount.

Performance Ride Control
-Performance ride control components include shock absorbers, struts, coil springs and lifting products that enhance the vehicle’s ability to absorb body motion and weight transfer. They are upgrades or additions/modifications to standard ride control components.
-Performance ride control components are often installed by vehicle modification enthusiasts for use in off-road environments.
-Lifting products includes suspension lift kits, leveling kits, lowering kits, and body lifts.


Market Definitions
-This study covers most types of ride control products and their variations provided through the automotive aftermarket industry by identified participants.
-One unit equals one shock absorber, strut, coil spring, strut mount, or lifting product.
-Prices are presented at the manufacturer or direct-import level, where the product enters one of the main distribution channels and expressed in US dollars.
-Prices are presented at the manufacturer or direct-import level, where the product enters one of the main distribution channels, and expressed in US dollars.
-The compound annual growth rate (CAGR) is measured from the base year (2013) to the end of forecast period (2020).
