One trend in the market is growing use of carbon fiber driveshafts in SUV segment. Carbon fiber driveshafts are currently used only in sports cars/racing cars, hypercars, and very few high-performance cars (as optional variant). Despite having many advantages, the manufacturing complexities and cost factors involved in the use of carbon composite driveshafts in vehicles have been hindering the expansion of the market to the mass segment.

According to the report, one driver in the market is rising competition among super sports car manufacturers. The global sports car market has evolved over the years with improving automotive technologies, growing global economy, and developing infrastructure. With the evolution of the automotive industry, consumers have gradually changed their preference lists while buying vehicles.
