Use of Lightweight Material in Manufacturing to Increase Adoption of Fifth Wheel Coupling

The acceptance of advanced material technology in the manufacturing of automobile components escalates the load capacity as well as the strength of the component. The augmented load capacity of fifth wheel couplings leads to a rise in the productivity, which in turn is likely to bolster the growth of the fifth wheel coupling market over the years ahead. Furthermore, stern emission standards in countries such as Italy, the U.K., the U.S., and Germany are persuading automotive manufacturers to manufacture fuel efficient vehicles.

For achieving a fuel efficient economy, auto makers are trying to reduce the weight of vehicles and their components, which is expected to support the demand for lightweight automotive fifth wheel couplings in the coming years. These advanced material fifth wheel couplings are comparatively light in weight and are known to increase the durability and performance of vehicles. These characteristics are expected to bolster the growth of the fifth wheel coupling market during the course of the forecast period.

Growing Penetration of Forged Products to Hinder Market Growth in Developing Automotive Markets

The automotive fifth wheel coupling market has been pugnacious against sham products and the supply of components over grey market trading. The counterfeit products are dearth of quality standards and are a threat for the safety of both the passengers and the vehicle. This factor is likely to pose a grave challenge for the fifth wheel coupling market in the coming years. Moreover, this may cause a severe monetary slowdown of companies operating in the fifth wheel coupling market by upsetting their aftermarket sales. Any reduction in aftermarket sales is likely to adversely impact revenue growth of the fifth wheel coupling market.
