Uncoated fiber to enhance airbag adoption
The non-coated segment will account for over 20% share in the automotive airbag market by 2026 due to lower cost and ease of recyclability as compared to coated fabric airbags. The non-coated fabric airbags are used in passenger cars owing to issues associated with coated fabrics including formation of bubble and irregularities during coating and difficulty in recyclability. The growing passenger vehicle sales in emerging economies will boost the segment growth.
Aftermarket distribution channel to gain traction in emerging economies
The aftermarket segment will witness around 4% growth during the forecast period on account of replacement of airbags systems from crash vehicles. The airbag control units are sensitive and require calibrating once the airbag deploy in crash incidence. Advanced devices including Tech device are available to recalibrate the control units. However, the costs of replacements and recalibration of airbag systems are high that may hamper the product growth.
Commercial vehicle to showcase promising growth
Commercial vehicle segment in the automotive airbag market will grow substantially through 2026 impelled by rising usage of these vehicles across a wide range of industries. The growing infrastructure projects in emerging economies along with proliferating logistics industry will enhances commercial vehicle penetration. The truck manufacturers are launching side curtain airbags to minimize the injury chances in rollover accidents.
Industry to witness surge in R&D investments
Automotive airbag industry participants are surging their R&D investment to offer enhanced safety operations in vehicles. The key manufacturers include Ashimori Industry, Autoliv, Continental AG, Denso Corporation, Hyundai Mobis, Joyson, Mitsubishi Electric Corporation, Toyota Gosei, Robert Bosch GmbH, Nihon Plast Co., Ltd. and ZF Friedrichshafen AG.
