Revival in automotive production volume and use of mechatronics system in place of mechanical system are expected to increase the global automotive door module industry market size by value over the forecast period. Lucintel expects a major rebound in the market, especially in APAC region which is observing high growth of fuel efficient cars, equipped with the latest automotive electronics systems technologies. Global automotive door module industry is expected to reach $26.8 billion by 2018, promising huge opportunity for the firms operating across the value chain.
The report analyses the automotive door module industry for all the four regions and analyses the risk factors and growth opportunities. Global automotive door module industry is segmented by region (APAC, Europe, NA, and ROW).
The global automotive door module industry is driven by revival in passenger cars and commercial vehicles production volume during 2011-2013. Increasing penetration of automotive door module in high-end vehicles, such as luxury vehicles and sports cars, will foster growth in the forthcoming period. Technological development, such as machatronics system emerges as a dominant technology in global automotive door module industry. This technology includes a combination of mechanical, electrical control, and computer engineering in a single system.
APAC, particularly China and India, drives the global automotive door module industry led by rising vehicles sales, increasing government auto safety policies, and stringent environmental measure to control emission. Top players prefer to invest in APAC region as automotive industry in European and North American regions have reached its maturity level. The use of advanced automotive door module materials over the next five years (2013-2018) is expected to increase across the globe due to several benefits, such as noise and weight reduction of vehicle.
The author highlights the key challenges faced by the global automotive door module industry as well, such as increasing prices of raw materials such as plastic, steel, natural fiber, etc. and inability of industry players to reduce carbon footprint emission during door modules manufacturing. Automotive door module manufacturers are facing low vertical integration problem, such as higher transportation cost at supplier's level. Door module manufacturers have to outsource some of the small components of door from Tier-one suppliers along with basic raw material which incurs huge transportation cost. The players are required to increase their ability to meet quality and delivery requirement, innovate alternative raw materials which can act as a substitute during price fluctuations, and move for backward integration to minimize manufacturing cost of door modules.
