Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Automotive Knee Airbag Systems Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global automotive knee airbag systems market: Autoliv, Takata, ZF-TRW, Hyundai Mobis, and Faurecia

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Ashimori, Ningbo Joyson Electronic, Nihon Plast, and Toyoda Gosei

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Automotive component manufacturers involved in the designing and development of airbag systems are working on new materials and deployment techniques for automotive airbag systems. Innovative materials and deployment techniques not only make the airbag inflation time shorter but also help in reducing the overall weight of the vehicles.”

According to the report, on-road accidents and collisions are inevitable at present, and thus, in-vehicle safety systems play an important role in reducing the number of such accidents. Airbag systems are crucial for ensuring passenger safety in moving vehicles because they are designed to reduce fatality during collisions. Knee airbag systems protect passengers during front-end collisions, rollovers, and side-impact accidents.

Further, the report states that though airbag systems are an important life-saving device during collisions, these devices have been found to be faulty in multiple instances. This leads us to infer that the technology used for manufacturing these devices is not fully mature. Improper tuning of sensors associated with airbag inflation have often led to unwanted deployment of airbag systems. Even occasional faults can lead to user's discarding safety technology, and such actions may have a deleterious effect on the growth of the market.
