Automotive Steering Roll Connectors – Drivers and Trends
This market research report provides market overview of the factors driving and restraining the growth of the market. The report also outlines the key trends emerging in the market that will contribute to the growth of Worldwide Automotive Steering Roll Connectors market during the forecast period. The factors driving the growth of the market include Adoption of infotainment systems in high volume mid segment vehicles. Features such as connected vehicles using telematics and high-end infotainment systems were a feature common to luxury or high-end vehicles until the recent past. However, the stiff competition in the mid-segment vehicles has forced OEMs to introduce these features in mass mid-segment vehicles such as hatchbacks and light commercial vehicles which include pick-up trucks. In the past couple of years, various OEMs and electronics suppliers in the automotive industry have actively invested in exploring means of cost reduction of these systems enabling them to be integrated to smaller cars and commercial vehicles.
Leading to increasing steering mounted electronic controls for various infotainment functions such as audio controls. This will drive the steering roll connectors demand among vehicles as these controls are connected to the electronic junction box through steering roll connectors. Moreover, emerging markets are expected to drive automotive sales, which in turn will drive the growth of automotive steering roll connectors.
Some of the major challenges confronting the Worldwide Automotive Steering Roll Connectors Market include gradual loss of low-cost advantage from Low-cost manufacturing countries. In earlier decades, within the automotive industry, there was an increase in outsourcing of manufacturing activities to low-cost countries such as China, Taiwan, South Korea and India owing to the availability of low-cost labor as compared to western countries. However, these countries are gradually losing its cost advantage due to the raising labor cost, for instance in China the population has become more affluent and has moved up the learning curve leading to higher cost of employment.
It is observed that manufacturers, especially in China and Taiwan have been facing concerns over attrition as labors prefer moving to other manufacturers for small income raise. Moreover, the shorter lifecycle of automotive electronics is another major challenge faced by the market. The report also provides the Porter's five forces analysis along with a description of each of the forces and its impact on the market.
