Technavio’s analysts categorize the global AIF market into three major segments by the application. They are:
- Passenger car
Global AIF market in passenger car segment
The sales of AIF in the passenger car segment are positively correlated with the sales of passenger vehicles, as each passenger car is equipped with two inner fenders above the front wheels and two inner fenders above the rear wheels.
According to Neelam Barua, a lead automotive components research analyst from Technavio, “Inner fender is an important component of the passenger car as it protects the vehicle’s engine from road debris, mud, and water. In a passenger car, inner fenders are manufactured from different materials such as plastic, fiberglass, or metal.”
Global AIF market in LCV segment
The major growth driver of the AIF in the LCV segment is the increase in the sales of LCV across all regions. The wider application of LCV has led to the rise in popularity of LCV. LCVs such as mini vans are now widely used for business purposes like a mobile canteen and intercity transportation, leading to the increase in the sales of LCV.
“In addition, LCVs are mainly used for facilitating last-mile connectivity over a limited region or area like a city for distribution of goods and its transportation, especially in stop-and-go traffic, light construction, and municipal applications,” says Neelam.
AIF market in M&HCV
The rise in the preference for transporting freight through roadways is driving the sales of M&HCVs. The increase in sales of M&HCVs drives the market for inner fenders in the M&HCV segment. Freight companies mainly in countries like China and India prefer road for transporting freight due to irregular freight services offered by rail despite the rail services, constituting the cheapest mode of freight transport.
