The global automotive airbag inflator market size reached US$ 4.65 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 6.03 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 4.33% during 2023-2028. The increasing sales of vehicles, rising focus on driver and passenger safety, and the growing awareness about vehicle safety represent some of the key factors driving the market.
An automotive airbag inflator is a device that generates gas to inflate an airbag in the event of a vehicle collision. It is a critical safety component in modern vehicles, which is installed in the steering wheel, dashboard, or door panels and triggered by sensors that detect a crash. It is powered by different mechanisms, including pyrotechnic, mechanical, or hybrid systems. It is utilized in inflatable seat belts, roof structures, and safety barriers for off road vehicles. At present, leading players are launching electric automotive airbag inflator that uses high voltage electrical discharge to generate the gas and help reduce the weight or complexity of the airbag system and improve the overall safety of the occupants.
Automotive Airbag Inflator Market Trends:
Increasing sales of passenger, autonomous, and luxury vehicles on account of rapid urbanization and inflating income levels represent one of the major factors driving the demand for automotive airbag inflators around the world. Moreover, the rising focus on driver and passenger safety due to the growing number of fatal road accidents is influencing the market positively. In addition, governments of numerous countries are mandating the installation of airbags in vehicles. This, coupled with the increasing awareness about vehicle safety among the masses, is favoring the growth of the market. Apart from this, there is a rise in the use of automotive airbag inflators in commercial vehicles, such as buses, delivery vans, and trucks, to protect the occupant in the event of a collision. This, along with the increasing use of commercial trucks to transport cargo and the growing need for efficient delivery solutions to ensure a faster supply of products among consumers, is creating a positive outlook for the market. Furthermore, key players operating worldwide are introducing side-curtain and knee airbags to reduce the risk of injuries on the chest, knees, thighs, and hips. This, coupled with the advent of smart and adaptive airbag systems that use sensors and algorithms to determine the severity of a crash and the position of the occupants, improve performance and safety, and adjust the deployment of the airbag accordingly, is propelling the growth of the market. Besides this, the growing popularity of electric vehicles (EVs) among individuals is strengthening the growth of the market.
