These are major factors that are likely to propel the automotive tailgate market during the forecast period. Automotive tailgate greatly influences the esthetic appearance of the vehicle, as it is located at the exterior rear-end of the vehicle. For light commercial trucks, automotive tailgates safeguard the load carried on the integrated trailer. This, in turn, is anticipated to drive the automotive tailgate in the near future.
Automotive tailgate offers numerous benefits; however, the market faces a couple of limitations.

Based on tailgate type, the global automotive tailgate market has been classified into hydraulic operated tailgate, power operated tailgate, and manual operated tailgate. In terms of tailgate type, power operated tailgate is a highly attractive segment of the market.
