Global Automotive Crash Impact Simulator Market 2017-2021

Global Automotive Crash Impact Simulator Market 2017-2021

About Automotive Crash Impact Simulator System

Automotive crash test is a form of destructive testing to ensure that a vehicle meets the required safety standards set by various automotive safety agencies, such as NCAP, ANCAP, NHTSA, IIHS among others across the geographies. Each year, cars worth millions of dollars end up in masses of tangled sheet metal and twisted components and parts in crash tests. Crash tests have saved millions of lives since their inception several decades ago.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global automotive crash impact simulator system market to grow at a CAGR of 29.61 % during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Automotive Crash Impact Simulator System Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global automotive crash impact simulator system market: Altair Engineering, Livermore Software Technology Corporation (LSTC), ESI Group, and Dassault Systèmes.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Humanetics Innovative Solutions, vCRASH, Americas, and HORIBA MIRA.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Impact of autonomous vehicles on automotive crash impact simulation algorithms. The kind of driverless car technologies, which are currently being developed by the technology giants like Google, certain automakers like Volvo, and automotive suppliers like Delphi are expected to aim towards eliminating on-road fatalities altogether. There lies, however, a large chasm of the unknown behind the design of the algorithms that are expected to make up the driverless cars' decision-making processes. There are two outcomes of the same, which is somehow plausible, given the duality of decision making itself - right and wrong, as well as all the data points which exist in-between. (provided the 3rd decision of saving both pedestrian and driver and the 4th decision of killing both pedestrian and driver are infeasible).”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Advances in technology paving way for greater acceptance of simulation tools. When the automakers began to simulate the vehicle crash tests in 1990s, it was a simple and coarse model and generally consisted of less than 1000 elements of basic components, such as bumpers. It usually took days to get results for a single component. Today, due to continuous advancements in computing resources, researchers have reached a stage where a full vehicle crash test, through simulation, involving millions of elements, can be completed in four to six weeks.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Understanding human anatomy and physiology. Despite the sophisticated technology of virtual crash test and the advent of the virtual crash test dummies, there are certain roadblocks that would be a challenge for the crash impact simulator market. One of the prime challenges is the proper understanding of the human anatomy, physiology, and the ability to distinguish between a severe and a light injury. For instance, a virtual crash test dummy used in simulation would not know about how a human brain responds to a head injury.
