Global Market for Automotive Airbag Inflator Poised to Flow Exponentially in the Near Future

22-Dec-2016 | Zion Market Research

At present, safety issues for automobile passengers have been an increasing concern. A representative safety device is an airbag which absorbs the crash energy of a passenger for the prevention of injuries during an otherwise accident. Airbags are studied extensively to provide customized protection to passengers of different body types. Airbag consists of an in?ator which generated gas and cushion assembly that is in direct contact with a passenger in order to absorb the crash impact. When an airbag is activated by impact sensor; propellant combustion generates burnt gas that is evicted from the in?ator so as to organize the cushion assembly. Two main characteristics in an airbag assembly are the combustion characteristics of the propellant and performance of the airbag assembly. In the airbag development process, a closed bomb test and a discharge tank test are often conducted to assess the performance of an airbag.

The growth of automotive airbag inflator market is mainly attributed to the increasing penetration of side-impact and curtain airbags, introduction of more bags per car, and increased vehicles production. In addition, rising regulatory requirements regarding vehicle safety paired with prioritizing more on customer safety and comfort and awareness about vehicle safety across the globe are some of the major supportive factors expected to prompt the market growth in coming years. On the other hand, the durability of the low cost airbag may restrict the growth of automotive airbag inflator market in the coming years. Nonetheless, the deployment of airbags in low-cost cars coupled with increasing awareness towards passenger safety is likely to reveal new avenues for automotive airbag inflator market in the near future.
