Analysts at Future Market Insights study the key influencers shaping air suspension system landscape.

Although air suspension systems has been around for long, the technological improvements together with the increasing penetration of automobiles have led to increased adoption of air suspension technology. As air suspension system increasing the capacity of vehicles for transporting loads by levelling suspension, they are increasingly incorporated in automobiles. In addition, an air suspension system offers minimal vibration and noise benefits, making it a must-have system. Furthermore, the air suspension system has significant advantages over the traditionally used leaf spring or coil spring suspensions, such as a smoother ride and height adjustments.

Which vehicle type creates maximum demand for air suspension system?

A. As the use of an air suspension system boosts the capabilities of carrying the load, the air suspension system market has witnessed predominant deployment of these systems in heavy-duty trucks.  Heavy-duty truck drivers have stated that the air suspension system enables driver comfort, load versatility, and improved comfort. New product innovations targeting the lucrative demand for the air suspension system for its deployment in light and heavy trucks is witnessed in the market. For instance, an off-road and overland vehicle part supplier, American Expedition Vehicles (AEV) introduced an air suspension system for truck that offers ride-height adjustability.

What future innovations can we expect in air suspension system landscape?

The burgeoning growth of the automotive sector is expected to trigger several innovations in the air suspension system market. Air suspension systems designed for passenger cars could further create new possibilities for the air suspension system that is designed for buses, trailers, and trucks. For instance, the new electric buses introduced in Hyderabad, India are integrated with an electronically controlled air suspension system that enables comfortable traveling.

Remaining compliant with the government requirements while using trucks and trailers for transporting loads is a crucial aspect. The governments of different countries imply regulations pertaining to the amount of load that trucks and trailers could carry, owing to which several innovations are witnessed in the market. Keeping the consumer preference in mind, the Ensol, a leading manufacturer of transport solutions, introduced a trailer equipped with an air suspension system, in light of the axle load norms announced by the Indian government that stated that all trucks and trailers equipped with air suspension system would be allowed to carry one ton extra per axle of load.

Air suspension system versus leaf spring suspension. Which will garner more consumer confidence?

Although the air suspension system is widely used as an alternative for the leaf spring suspension, there are a few benefits offered by leaf spring as a vehicle suspension which could potentially hinder the application of an air suspension system over time. The air suspension system weighs relatively more and reflects more maintenance costs, which could act as a restraining factor for the air suspension system market growth.
