Active Spoiler industry are installed in vehicles to achieve enhanced control with minimum drag. This aerodynamic device nullifies any kind of turbulence or unfavorable air movement when the vehicle is in operation. They offer the advantages of improved braking time and deliver better aerodynamics at high speed. Automotive active spoilers are generally placed in race and high performance sports cars. Aesthetically they allow a cleaner and stylish appearance to the vehicle. Recent figures revealed by Market Research Future (MRFR) in its latest study asserts that the global automotive active spoiler market is set to achieve a CAGR of 6.9% over the forecast period which ends in 2023.
Automotive active spoilers were originally used for racing purpose but are now increasingly gaining traction as an accessory for high performance. Their association with sports car segment gives them the reputation of being a trendy design feature and car manufacturers are increasingly installing them in normal or high-end cars for styling purposes which are adding fuel to the growth of the global automotive active spoilers market.
Carbon fiber is the preferred choice for automotive active spoilers and has gained massive popularity owing to their superior characteristics. Multiple advantages offered by carbon fiber automotive active spoilers such as higher workability, corrosion resistance, and strength-to-weight ratio have acted in favor of the global automotive active spoilers market. Carbon fibers are lightweight and hence help to improve the fuel efficiency of cars which is a major reason spurring the adoption of carbon fiber automotive active spoilers. This is further complemented by government regulations pertaining to fuel efficiency and emission control complements which encourage the growth of the market.
Other factors fostering the growth of the market include an increase in demand for sports cars and increase overall sales of vehicles. However, the installation of automotive active spoilers raises the cost of production for OEMs which might impede the growth of the market over the forecast period.
The key players in the global automotive active spoiler market include Koenigsegg Automotive AB (Sweden), Porsche AG (Germany), Pagani Automobili (Italy),McLaren (UK), Daimler AG (Germany), BMW AG (Germany), AUDI AG (Germany), Lexus (Japan), Bugatti Automobiles (France), and Ferrari (Italy).
The global automotive active spoiler market has been segmented based on type and material type.
By type, the global automotive active spoiler market has been segmented into front spoiler, lighted spoiler, pedestal spoiler, roof spoiler, and lip spoiler.
