In this report, Technavio analysts highlight the need for lightweight thrust washers as a key factor contributing to the growth of the global automotive thrust washers market:

Need for lightweight thrust washers

Use of aluminum as an alternative to steel to manufacture automotive thrust washers enhances the performance of the thrust washers. Owing to its versatility, aluminum is the second most chosen material to replace steel. Some of its application end-user industries are building, construction, electrical, machinery, automotive, and transportation. Aluminum is used for various applications in various forms due to its unique features such as less weight, corrosion resistance, and recyclability. It is also used in the manufacturing of sheets for automobile and roofing; tubes for heating, ventilation, air-conditioning systems, and radiators; extrusions for doors and windows; castings for auto parts; foils for food packaging; and plates for shipping and tooling.

According to a senior analyst at Technavio for automotive components, “The automobile industry is witnessing a rise in the adoption of advanced technologies to reduce the emission levels, to increase the fuel efficiency, and to improve the driving dynamics of vehicles. Aluminum alloys are used for automotive thrust washers that weigh half the weight of the regular steel thrust washers. This proves to be stronger, safer, and more efficient. In countries such as China, Germany, Japan, and the US, the adoption rate of aluminum is expected to be the highest during the forecast period.”
