Car Airbag Manufacturing

Over the five years to 2016, revenue for the Car Airbag Manufacturing industry is expected to increase. Industry operators manufacture airbags for all types of automobiles, including passenger cars and heavy trucks.

As a result, several positive trends have stimulated industry revenue, such as rising consumer confidence. Although the industry is anticipated to grow, industry operators encounter several obstacles that will likely inhibit profitability, such as rising import penetration and new technology. Over the five years to 2021, these negative trends will likely persist, if not become more prominent; however, industry revenue is anticipated to continue to increase, bolstered by higher demand from large automakers.
