In general, consumers replace shock absorbers only when they show deterioration signs. Added to this, the quality of shock absorbers has increased to a great extent during the past few years, thus impacting the replacement market. Among other things, improved road conditions have reduced the need for shock absorber replacements. A shift towards bi-tube shock absorbers from mono-tube shock absorbers, and the development of gas shock absorbers, which effectively extend the product life, has also affected the shock absorber market.

Global OEM automotive shock absorbers market is estimated at US$2.12 billion for 2007.
