Global Automotive Crash Test Barrier Market 2017-2021
About Automotive Crash Test Barrier
Crash test barriers are the test tools, which replicate the properties of real materials, and they are used in the crash testing process. The crash test barriers are used for reducing the cost of testing, because they are used for crashing, instead of the complete product. Automotive crash test barriers are those which are used of for crash testing the vehicles. There are two types of barriers – rigid barriers and deformable barriers – which are used for frontal and side impact testing.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global automotive crash test barrier market to grow at a CAGR of 6.20% during the period 2017-2021.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global automotive crash test barrier market for 2017-2021. The report presents a detailed picture of the market by way of study, synthesis, and summation of data from multiple sources.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Automotive Crash Test Barrier Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global automotive crash test barrier market: AFL Honeycomb, Cellbond, MESSRING Systembau MSG, and Plascore.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: 4activeSystems, Dynamics Research, and Denton ATD.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is new mobile trolley-based frontal offset barrier. The crash test for examining the safety, reliability, and durability of a vehicle is conducted by crashing the vehicle into barriers, which are made of brick or steel. Before crash test barriers came into the picture, another car was used instead for crash tests. Then, as a step to reduce crash testing costs, barriers were used.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is investment in crash test facilities. The need for the safety of vehicles is increasing, and the safety and emission regulations are becoming more stringent. This has made automotive manufacturers concentrate more on the occupant and pedestrian safety and has caused them to increase the safety features in their vehicles. Increase in safety features means an increase in the need to test their capability and reliability. Therefore, newer the technological advancement, more is the need for physical crash tests in order to determine accurate results.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is crash test simulator – a cost challenge for crash test barrier. In the days after their inception, crash simulators were primarily confined to the research arena. However, gradually they have moved into the development process of a vehicle. Presently, simulators are used by various automotive value chain members, from OEMs to suppliers, to reduce costs and delays. Such reductions in costs are usually brought forth using virtual prototypes for testing of new components and features before any physical prototype is built.
