Inner fenders are parts of a vehicle that frames both the front wheels and rear wheels in an automobile. When automobile tires rotate at high speed, road debris is thrown into the air towards other vehicles and pedestrians. Inner fenders of an automobile prevent liquids, rocks, mud and sand including other road debris from being thrown at vehicles and pedestrians. In the U.K. fenders are also known as wing and in India and Sri Lanka they are known as mudguard.
Steel and sheet molding compounds are the main materials used to manufacture automotive inner fenders. Sheet metal compounds are sometimes used in place of steel as automotive inner fender materials because sheet molding compounds weight lighter than steel. When sheet molding compounds are used as inner fender materials in place of steel in a vehicle, the weight of the automobile is reduced which will consequently increase fuel efficiency by increasing vehicle mileage and reduce vehicular emissions. Automotive inner fenders are used in all types of vehicles ranging from passenger vehicles to commercial vehicles.
By material, the automotive inner fenders market is segmented into steel and sheet molding compound (SMC). By vehicle type, the market is classified into passenger vehicles, light commercial vehicles (LCVs) and heavy commercial vehicles (HCVs).
