Mid-sized Cars and Compact Cars to Account for Nearly Half of Global Market Volumes through 2026
The report estimates that airbag electronics manufactured across the globe will be predominantly used in mid-sized cars and compact cars. In 2017, nearly 60,000 thousand units of airbag electronics were installed in mid-sized cars and compact cars across the globe. Growing sales of mid-sized cars will factor their dominance in the global airbag electronics market. In terms of vehicles, mid-sized cars are expected to account for one-fourth of overall airbag electronics volumes sold in the global market. The report further reveals that compact cars will register highest volume CAGR of 8% over the forecast period.
Aftermarket Sales of Airbag Electronics to Gain Traction
In 2018 and beyond, OEMs will be the largest sales channel in the global airbag electronics market. By the end of forecast period, nearly 57% of airbag electronics manufactured in the global market will be sold through OEMs. However, the report also reveals that the aftermarket sales of airbag electronics will register fastest growth, reflecting a volume CAGR of 7.3% over the forecast period.
