Global Automotive Crankshaft Market 2017-2021: Driven by Decline in Steel Prices - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--The "Global Automotive Crankshaft Market 2017-2021" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

The global automotive crankshaft market is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 4.83% during the period 2017-2021.

The report, Global Automotive Crankshaft Market 2017-2021, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.

One trend in the market is fillet hardening of crankshaft. The crankshaft is an essential component which drives the vehicle forward by converting the reciprocating motion of pistons to rotatory motion. It is exposed to various stresses and loads. Surface hardening is a process which reduces wear on bearing journals and extends a crankshaft's life.

According to the report, one driver in the market is decline in steel prices. Typically, an automotive crankshaft is made from forging steel or cast iron. Steel is tougher than iron and retains its physical properties at high temperatures. Due to steel's enhanced performance in compression, tension, and shear, it is preferred over cast iron for manufacturing automotive crankshafts. This is due to its crystalline structure and lesser carbon content. While cast iron has around 4% of carbon by weight, steel only has 0.02%-1.7%. Changing the carbon content can change the properties, such as hardness, ductility, and strength.
