Automotive Curtain Airbag Market shall reach a value of $2x61.4 Million in 2032, growing with a CAGR of 12.13% during the forecast period of 2022 to 2032.

Automotive Curtain Airbags Market Definition / Research Scope

For the purpose of this market research report, Automotive Curtain Airbag is defined as an airbag that offers head protection from side collision in cars. The increasing pressure by regulatory bodies to make motor vehicles safer for users has led to the inclusion of Automotive Curtain Airbags into cars. Traditional airbags provide protection only in the case of front collision. However, as the number of road accidents are increasing day by day, Automotive Curtain Airbag have become a mandatory part of manufacture of cars. Automotive Curtain Airbag reduce the fatalities and injuries from side impacts up to forty-five percent. Some of Automotive Curtain Airbags are also programmed to open in case of a frontal impact.

Automotive Curtain Airbags Market Growth & Trend Analysis

The emergence of autonomous cars, alternative fuel vehicles, connected cars, light vehicles, and blockchain has given the automotive industry its most disruptive decade. Airbags were mostly reserved for luxury cars a decade ago. The current situation is completely different as a result of increased pressure from regulatory agencies, consumer concerns about safety, and intense competition in the market. Therefore, airbags in cars are an absolute necessity. Curtain airbags are therefore very popular. These airbags protect people from being injured. During an accident, curtain airbags provide cushioning between the occupants and the windows, which prevents chances of the occupants being injured. Nearly every new car released in the past couple of years had at least one airbag (on the drivers side), with some nations also offering curtain-mounted airbags. Due to an increase in road accidents, vehicle manufacturers are now required to install airbags. Over the forecast period, an increase in public awareness, as well as ongoing technological advancements, are expected to foster market growth significantly.

The slowdown in automobile sales due to COVID-19 is causing ripple effects in numerous industries that are dependent on the automotive industry. Due to social distancing, the auto industry had to adapt to new ways of working even once businesses reopen. Faced with declining demand, automakers are revising their strategies and operations for the post-COVID-19 world. To improve customer engagement and provide financial relief, the company is currently focused on enabling a remote workforce where possible, reducing operating costs, and investing in digital technologies. As remote workplaces and collaborations have opened new ways for hackers to attack, auto manufacturers have to keep funding CASE innovations (Connected, Autonomous, Shared, and Electric) in order to stay ahead of their competitors. Industry 4.0 initiatives are likely to slow down in the near term, even so, manufacturers realize the importance of creating resilient supply chains and manufacturing operations in the long run. In addition, mergers and acquisitions and increased resource pooling will be beneficial for organizations.

Automotive Curtain Airbags Market Segmentation

The front pillars, roof sides, and rear pillars of the vehicle are equipped with curtain airbags. During a side collision, it deploys simultaneously with the side airbag to protect the drivers or passengers head. Most airbags in SUVs and vans are curtain airbags. As safety standards are increasing across all types of vehicles, curtain airbags are likely to grow during the forecast period, owing to their increased adoption across automotive segments, from mini-cars to heavy-duty trucks. All occupants are required to be protected from side-impact collisions as stated by federal regulation. The side airbags are not specifically mandated, but they are typically sufficient to provide the required level of protection. Due to this, most passenger vehicles come with side airbags as standard equipment. Around 22% of fatal and serious injuries associated with side-impact crashes occur at intersections. Thus, curtain airbags have become more readily available. From 64% in 2011 to 94% in early 2021, the percentage of new vehicles sold in Victoria with curtain airbags has increased.

The automotive curtain airbags market is seeing significant opportunities outside the automotive industry, as well. An automotive curtain airbag protects the heads and necks of patients during an unexpected accident. In addition to the roll sensors, ambulance manufacturers continue to integrate them into the ambulance, so that when an unexpected accident occurs, the airbags deploy, thereby boosting the sales of automotive curtain airbags. In the automotive curtain airbags market, the nylon type segment is expected to grow at the highest rate due to its high revenue potential. Globally, nylon is expected to surpass US$ 74 million by the end of 2022. Within the automotive curtain airbag market, nylon is projected to register the highest CAGR through 2022. Further, OEMs are expected to witness the highest revenue growth compared to other channels of sales. OEM sales are expected to exceed US$ 85 Mn by the end of 2022. However, the aftermarket remains the biggest market for automotive curtain airbags. Throughout 2022, automotive curtain airbags are expected to grow at the highest rate via the aftermarket channel.

Automotive Curtain Airbags Market Regional Analysis

Advancement in-vehicle passive safety systems and increased risk of road accidents are expected to implement growing demands for automotive airbag systems in the global market for driver’s safety.
