The global steel wheel market is expected to grow during the forecast period. It is a common practice in passenger cars to use rims that come with a drop-centre design. The purpose of drop centre enables the wheel rim to come in and out of the wheel hence it is necessary for wheels to be robust to carry the entire mass of the vehicle and sustain extreme weather conditions. The wheel centre must encompass the wheel rim at the centre of the axle. It should also provide a standard distance from the wheel’s centre to sustain the turbulence caused due to rotational motion.
The steel wheel aka wheel rim must also be under proper dimensions to support the tyre with a loaded vehicle and the forces generated by the vehicle’s motion. On inflating the tyre, the rim holds the tyre and enables safety. In any event of deflation, the safety ridges prevent the tyre from losing its centre position. This further helps in maintaining the control of vehicle when brakes are applied. Therefore, well-based rims can also be used for HCVs with tubeless tyres.
Steel wheel market is driven by development in automobile infrastructure and surge in automobile production. In addition, the market growth is stimulated due to presence of key players in the industry and demand for OEMs. Change in manufacturing trends and distribution logistics is more likely to propel the market growth during the forecast period.
