Wheel studs are extensively used to hold the wheels of an automobile. These are commonly referred to as threaded fasteners that are mounted through the brake drum or brake disk directly to the vehicle hub.

Wheel studs can be either aftermarket add-ons or factory equipment. These remain in the hub when a wheel is removed for tire changes. Aftermarket wheel studs enable companies to mount a wheel to a vehicle that is not factory supplied.

These come in two basic kinds, namely, screw-in and press-in. These are easily replaceable. Screw-in studs can be simply screwed into the existing hole of the threaded bolt in the hub.

Which are Some Prominent Drivers Spearheading Wheel Studs Market Growth

The rising number of benefits of wheel studs are expected to augment the growth in the global market. Unlike wheel bolts, these provide greater ease for tire changes. These help people to lift both the tire and the wheel onto the studs, thereby enabling them to hold and locate the assembly rather than trying to hold the wheel up during tire changes for inserting bolts.

In case of stripped threads, these often require very few parts for replacement. The whole hub usually has to be replaced with lug bolts. Studs protruding from the hub deliver an easy way to align the wheel during mounting. Also, many automobile manufacturers are expected to provide a mounting pin to customers to help them locate wheels during reinstallation. Spurred by the aforementioned factors, the sales of wheel studs are projected to grow at a fast pace in the forthcoming years.

What are the Challenges Faced by the Wheel Studs Industry

Wheel stud failures on vehicles is a very common problem that customers often face. Though the issue occurs across a wide range of vehicle types, it is mainly associated with heavy goods vehicles. Metallurgical analysis of numerous failed wheeled studs showcased that these have failed because of fatigue. The rising cases of wheel losses across the globe may hamper the wheel studs market growth in future years.

Why is Asia Pacific Emerging as an Opportunistic Wheel Studs Market

The ongoing expansion of the automotive industry and the presence of various automobile manufacturers in emerging economies, such as India and China are estimated to bolster the Asia Pacific wheel studs market share in the evaluation period. The rising development of better quality automotive equipment by key players based in these countries to cater to the surging demand from customers is another vital factor that is likely to augur well for the regional market.

As per the India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), India was the fifth-largest automobile market in 2020 with 3.49 million units sold in both commercial vehicles and passenger car categories. Between FY16-20, the production of domestic automobiles surged at 2.36% CAGR and nearly 26.36 million vehicles were manufactured in FY20 in the country. This trend is likely to continue throughout the forthcoming years, thereby bolstering the Asia Pacific market.
