Market Research Future (MRFR) projects the global automotive propeller shaft market report to exhibit an 8.50% CAGR from 2020 to 2027 (forecast period). The factors driving the growth of the automotive propeller shaft market report are material technology advancement, growth in the automotive industry, and an increase in new vehicle sales. The market is expected to be driven in the future by technological advancements in automotive propeller shafts. To reduce the total weight of the vehicle, innovations such as lightweight propeller shafts have arisen. The increase in sales of new vehicles will result in the increasing use of propeller shaft in the vehicle to drive the vehicle. It is an essential vehicle component because it provides torque and allows the vehicle to move.

The automotive propeller shaft is a mechanical component used to drive the wheels and transmit torque. The propeller shaft is typically used to link other components of the drive train that cannot be linked directly due to their great distance between the two components. The drive shaft contains one or more universal joints, a jaw coupling, and, sometimes, a prismatic joint. A longitudinal shaft is used to transfer power from the engine to the other side of the vehicle before moving towards the wheels.

It uses a drive shaft to shift power from the engine to the wheels. It is one of the most important components of the wheel since it oversees driving the vehicle. Since the propeller shaft influences the vehicle's performance, its construction must be performed with great care. Many automotive manufacturers are actively investing in R&D to innovate their product line. Many manufacturers are focusing on developing lightweight shafts to minimize the total weight of the vehicle, which will result in better fuel efficiency. As a result, the decrease in total vehicle weight will drive the demand in the future.
