Global Alloy Wheels Aftermarket – Analysis, Technologies & Forecasts to 2020 – Increase in Personalization of Vehicles

DUBLIN, October 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ —

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the “Global Alloy Wheels Aftermarket 2016-2020” report to their offering.

The report forecasts the global alloy wheels aftermarket to grow at a CAGR of 2.93% during the period 2016-2020.

One of the key trends for market growth will be adoption of advanced technology in manufacturing of alloy wheels. There are different production methods of wheels. Earlier, wheels were manufactured by the method of steel casting. But the problem with casting is the formation of air bubbles while pouring the hot molten liquid into the mold to get the required design. It causes the material to weaken, and there are higher chances of getting the alloy damaged when high pressure is applied.

According to the report, the aftermarket supplier takes advantage of the gap in terms of quality, flexibility, features, and cost and offers much more flexibility and customization at a lower price. Moreover, aftermarket alloy wheel price will be lower than the OEMs standard alloy wheels. The growing aspiration among millennials is acting as a driver for the growth of the alloy wheels aftermarket.

Further, the report states that there has been an increase in the fitment of alloy wheels done by OEMs. More and more vehicles, even in low variants, are being equipped with alloy wheels. OEMs are trying to tap the untapped market by equipping low variant vehicles with alloy wheels, posing a big challenge to the aftermarket alloy wheel suppliers. Some OEMs even equip the alloy wheels as a standard fitment during launch as a USP and later withdraw it. Tata Motors adopted this strategy when they launched Zest in 2014.
