Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Automotive Seat Recliners Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global automotive seat recliners market: Faurecia, Lear, IFB Automotive, and Johnson Controls

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: SHIROKI Corporation, Atwood Mobile Products, DURA Automotive System, Toyota Boshoku, TS Tech, and Fisher and Company.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Intelligent car seats that monitor driver's stress level. Active Wellness seat by Faurecia is the world’s first health monitoring car seat. A biometric sensing system is built into the lining of the seat, which will detect the driver's energy levels and stress condition and reply with a solution, such as a massage or adjusting the temperature inside the vehicle through seat ventilation system.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Low penetration of cars in emerging countries will drive automotive seat recliners market. In the US, for every 1000 people, there are approximately 800 cars. However, in emerging countries like China the ratio comes down to 105 cars for 1000 people, and in India, it drastically comes down to 20 cars for every 1000 people. Hence, in emerging countries like China, India, Brazil, Korea and parts of eastern Europe, the automotive industry is expected to grow. It is estimated that two-thirds of global consumer spending comes from rapidly-growing markets, such as India, China, Brazil, and South Korea. This is due to increase in disposable income of the people in these countries.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Design issues with seat recliners. Safety is a major concern in automotive seating, and the current trend in the industry is to manufacture lighter vehicles by ensuring the occupants' safety. Design of the seat recliner plays a crucial role in the event of a crash or an accident. If the recliner is not built properly, the occupants of the vehicle are thrown against their seat backrest during the crash. The failure in recliner lead to collapsing and twisting of the seat backrest, which results in spinal injuries. The locking mechanism of the recliner should be designed in such a way that the seat back does not collapse due to the collision impact.
