The Mid-Size SUVs would lead the global SUV market during the forecast period

The mid-size SUVs hold the largest market among all types. They are offered in multiple engine variants with gasoline (naturally aspirated and turbocharged), diesel, and some plug-in hybrid options for better fuel economy. Additionally, these vehicles are provided with various transmission options (manual, automatic transmission (AT), CVT, and DCT), 2 or 3 rows of seating options, and multiple luxury, safety, and driver assistance features (such as smart entry, start-stop, all-wheel disc brakes, heated & ventilated seats, sunroof, ambient lighting, etc.). Consumers mostly prefer mid-size SUVs, and the inclination is shifting from the premium hatchback or compact SUV segment to this segment. The key reason for the same is to get additional seating and cargo space with a moving inclination towards better functionality and improved practical features at comparatively lower prices than full-size SUVs. Increasing disposable income is also one of the reasons for this shift. Thus, the rising adoption of mid-size SUVs in the Americas, Europe, and developed countries such as Japan and South Korea will drive the growth of this segment.

Asia Pacific is estimated to be the dominant regional market for SUV

The market growth in Asia Pacific countries such as China, Japan, and India can be attributed to the increasing demand for vehicles owing to changing consumer preferences, increasing per capita income of the middle-class population, and cost advantages to global OEMs. Due to the increased vehicle production and sales, China is estimated to be the largest market for SUVs. As demand for passenger cars is growing, the consumer preference for comfort and advanced safety features has increased. Further, OEMs in this region offer multiple variants of SUVs in different type of SUVs at competitive pricing, which resulted in shifting consumer preference from sedan to the hatchback. Thus, rising vehicle production and consumer inclination for advanced safety and comfort features will create lucrative opportunities in the coming years.
