Automotive Airbag Inflators Market Analysts Expect Robust Growth in 2024

Automotive airbag inflators are part of an automotive airbag inflator system, which generates gas to inflate airbags. Automotive airbag inflators play a major role in driver and passenger safety. Implementation of stringent government regulations regarding the adoption of airbags in automobiles are expected to drive the market in the near future. New safety directives issued in major markets worldwide, including the U.S., Western Europe, and Japan, are anticipated to boost the automotive airbag inflators market. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) introduced new regulations for adopting side airbags. These are likely be mandated for all vehicles by 2018. Currently, airbags are being installed in luxury and medium range (by price) cars. System integrators and automobile manufacturers are investing significantly in R&D for the manufacture of affordable and advanced airbag inflators to meet the increasing demand for airbags. Global car production has increased significantly of late. The airbag inflators market is estimated to expand significantly during the forecast period owing to the implementation of governmental regulations on the adoption of airbags in passenger cars in major countries.

Airbag inflators are designed and integrated as part of the occupant safety system in vehicles. Due to high costs, OEMs prefer low-priced airbag inflators in medium- and low-end cars. Low-priced airbag inflators usually have less durability and lifespan of less than one year. The global airbag inflators market is expanding rapidly due to various factors such as technology integration, regulatory pressure, and consumer demand. There exist significant opportunities in the market; however, intense competition among manufacturers of airbag inflators is hampering the entry of new players.

Furthermore, high capital investment is required to set up plants and compete with the existing players. Manufacturers of airbag inflators compete with each other in terms of technology, performance, and price. System integrators try to obtain edge over their competitors by winning OEM contracts. Companies invest significantly in research and development activities and strive to obtain more contracts. Established players have stronghold on the global market for airbag inflators due to their reliability, trustworthiness, and high quality standards. The degree of competition is high, as manufacturers offer similar products with limited differentiating attributes. Competitive rivalry in the market is projected to remain high during the forecast period, as major players continue to invest in R&D activities and launch advanced products with lower size and weight.
