Global Automotive Crash Test Dummies Market 2017-2021
About Automotive Crash Test Dummies
Crash test dummies are human-like structures equipped with sensors and other instrumentations, such as accelerometer, load sensors, and potentiometers that provide data about the impact of the crash on individuals.
Automotive crash test dummies are used in different types of crash testing, such as frontal impact, side impact, rear impact, whiplash effect, and pedestrian impact.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global automotive crash test dummies market to grow at a CAGR of 1.38% 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 dummies market for 2017-2021. To calculate the market size, the report considers the new launches of the automotive cars and it excludes the commercial vehicles and the crash testing of existing model cars in market.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is new materials for automotive parts demand physical test. The first commercially available car was made of wooden parts, and then the present-day design of the internal combustion cars was made of iron. The need to increase fuel efficiency forced the manufacturers to shift to a different material steel. The usage of steel in all the automotive parts has been followed since the early 1900s.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Crash and safety testing: Key element in new product development. The number of new car launches has been increasing, and the need for safety in those vehicles is also increasing. The development cost of a new car is huge, and a larger portion of this cost is involved in crash and safety testing. Although the designs are made after multiple simulations, the need for crash testing remains crucial.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is High manufacturing cost and selling price. Crash test dummies came into existence in 1949, and at that time the impacts to be measured were less. Therefore, the instrumentations used for the measurement of impacts were less in the old crash test dummies. Those dummies were heavy and did not replicate the weight of an average individual. With advances in automotive technology and increasing adoption of automobiles, the demand for safety equipment in vehicles increased, which increased the need for accuracy in the impact tests for both vehicles and occupants.
