Global Automotive Sled Testing System Market 2017-2021

About Automotive Sled Testing System

Automotive crash test ensures that the vehicle meets the required safety standards, which are set by various automotive safety agencies, such as NCAP, ANCAP, NHTSA, and IIHS among others, across the geographies. Sled tests is a type of automotive testing done by various OEMs to meet the occupant safety regulations. Sled tests are nondestructive tests conducted on sleds with the use of car body (BIW) or components of cars, aircraft, or any other vehicles such as seats, seat belts, airbags. This type of testing is done by replicating the critical events in a full-scale crash on a sled system. Sled testing is useful in determining the level of occupant safety that a car offers in the case of crashes. The revenue in the market includes both product sales (sleds) and the cost of conducting a test (testing service).

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global automotive sled testing system market to grow at a CAGR of 11.84% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Automotive Sled Testing System Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global automotive sled testing system market: Aries, Calspan, HORIBA MIRA, MESSRING Systembau, and Seattle Safety.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: APV Tech Centre, S-E-A, BIA, and Exponent.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Development of sled systems with higher DoF. With the ever-increasing demand for efficiency and performance from sled systems for offset, narrow offset, angled and compatibility crash modes, the question for combined pitch and yaw arises. Studies are being undertaken to analyze a wide range of crashes to develop a set of pitch and yaw data, and if possible, develop a working concept of the system.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Players introducing economical upgrade packages to keep sled equipment updated. Sled systems are expensive and require a considerable amount and space for installation as well. This makes it difficult for the system to be upgraded. For instance, upgradation of pitch simulation requires building an entirely new sled system, which is difficult to justify in terms of time and money. Various players in the market have come up with a solution to this by providing certain add-ons to the existing sled systems. Seattle Safety developed an innovative Dynamic Pitch upgrade, which is an economical add-on accessory, for its existing sleds.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is High cost of crash test dummies. The inception of crash test dummies happened in 1949. During that era, the measurements and impacts to be tested in automotive were very less, and hence, few instrumentations were used in the crash test dummies. The dummies back then were too heavy and did not replicate a normal human being in any sense. In the consequent years, the demand for safety in automotive increased, which led to the need for high accuracy in impact testing for both vehicle and occupants.
