An automotive clock spring is installed in the steering wheel of the vehicle. The spring retracts and expands inside the steering wheel when steering wheel moves. The primary function of the clock spring is to maintain electric connections of the airbag unit, steering mounted controls such as radio, cruise control, horn, and other entertainment functions, which are mounted on the steering wheel. It maintains electric connections during steering wheel movement and provides important assistance to the driver. The material utilized for clock spring is carbon steel, stainless steel, and copper alloys owing to their advantage over the other materials.

Increase in demand for steering mounted controls, government emphasis on passenger’s safety,  rise in demand for passenger vehicles and light commercial vehicle and demand for safety features these factors are likely to drive the market of automotive clock spring in forecast period. However, development in the field of autonomous vehicle, change in technology in cars, and improper centering process. These factors are likely to hamper the growth of automotive clock spring market in forecast period.
