“While manufacturers of 3D wheel aligners are looking up to the automotive industry to gain traction again, growing demand for 5-camera and 6-camera 3D wheel aligners is bolstering sales further,” said an analyst.
Is Demand from Automotive Industry Rising?
3D wheel aligners are highly required in the automotive industry in order to precisely align wheels on all types of cars. They are also capable in helping tires perform properly and allow them to last longer. As a result, suppliers and manufacturers in this industry are depending on the recovery of the automotive industry after getting over the negative impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
According to a report titled ‘Automobile Industry in India- Auto Sector Growth Analysis’, published by Invest India, the National Investment Promotion & Facilitation Agency, India is expected to be the world’s third-largest automotive market in terms of volume by 2026. As stated in the report, the industry manufactured 26 million vehicles, including passenger vehicles, commercial vehicles, three wheelers, two wheelers, and quadricycles in April 2019 – March 2020, of which, 4.7 million were exported.
As per data revealed in the report, the automotive industry is projected to grow steadily, overcoming the setbacks due to the pandemic, while the electric vehicles (EV) market will expand at around 44% CAGR over the coming years. This, in turn, will spur the growth of 3D wheel aligner manufacturers in the near future.
Who Is Winning In This Space?
The global 3D wheel aligners market is expected to witness steady growth over the coming years, with the competition becoming even tighter for key players. In order to sail through the cut-throat competition, key market players are emphasizing on diversifying their products.
