Market Overview

The Automotive Curtain Airbags  Industry is expected to generate revenue of USD 4.6 Billion within the present forecast years, at a CAGR of 4%. Airbag systems were mostly used in premium vehicles just over a decade ago. The current scenario has completely changed because of increased regulatory pressure, strong market competition, and rising consumer worries about safety. These pressures amplify the long-standing importance for automakers to install an airbag system in every vehicle, regardless of market category.

Vehicle makers have increased the number of airbags available in cars, resulting in a threefold increase in airbag usage in the last three to four years. Almost every new car launched in the previous few years includes at least one airbag (driver side), with some additionally including curtain airbags, particularly in developing nations. Because of the rising frequency of car accidents, automakers are now required to include airbags. Over the forecast period, an increase in public awareness and technological developments are also likely to drive demand for curtain airbags.
