The passenger car segment is estimated to be the largest in the automotive wheels’ aftermarket. The rising number of enthusiasts and growing demand for passenger vehicles in emerging and developed countries have contributed to the growth of the automotive wheel’s aftermarket for passenger cars. Various aftermarket players are taking initiatives to improve public transportation. For instance, in January 2017, Maxion Wheels developed the forged aluminum commercial vehicle wheel product in line to the market’s growing need for lighter vehicles, which, in turn, reduces fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. The new 22.5 x 8.25 aluminum commercial wheel weighs around 45 lbs.

Alloy: Improves the appearance of the wheels

Alloy is expected to be the fastest market for global automotive wheels aftermarket. The growth is due to factors such as corrosion resistance, durability, high tensile strength, density, ductility, and malleability. The two major or commonly used components in the making of alloy wheels are aluminum and magnesium.  Aluminum is a lightweight material and is ductile, durable, and corrosion-resistant. Cars manufactured using aluminum are lightweight, fuel efficient, and emission efficient.

Asia Pacific: China is expected to lead the Asia Pacific market  

The Asia Pacific region is estimated to be the fastest growing market. The region comprises some of the fastest developing economies of the world such as China and India. The Asia Pacific region is home to key suppliers of automotive wheels such as Enkei (Japan) and Zhejiang Wanfeng Auto Wheel (China). Factors such as the availability of cheap labor and favorable government policies help undertake mass production of automotive components in Asia Pacific, which results in lower prices. In addition, high investments by major OEMs in advanced technologies are providing growth opportunities for the aftermarket wheels manufacturers in this region.
