Automotive Curtain Airbags 2018 Global Market Challenge, Driver, Trends & Forecast to 2023

Pune, India, 28th August 2018: WiseGuyReports announced addition of new report, titled “Global Automotive Curtain Airbags Market Research Report – Forecast to 2023”.

Automotive curtain airbags are side airbags that protect the head of the occupant in case of an accident. They immediately activate at the door rail above the window as soon as a side impact crash occurs. When a crash occurs, such airbags work as cushion between the occupants and the windows. Various components such as airbag modules, crash sensors, diagnostic monitoring units, steering wheel connecting coil, and indicator lamps are part of airbags systems.




The global automotive curtain airbags market is primarily driven by the extensive use of passive safety systems and stringent government regulations for passenger. Increase in need for effective curtain airbags is expected to add to the market growth.

The market has been segmented, on the basis of yarn type as nylon and polyester segments. Nylon curtain airbags segment had the largest market size in 2017, owing to the benefits of dirt repellency, self-cleaning in rain, and smoothness, which enhance the demand for nylon type curtain airbags in the vehicles. On the basis of application, the market has been segmented into torso curtain airbags, head curtain airbags, and combo curtain airbags, head curtain airbags segment being the dominating segment, in terms of market share in 2017. The market has been segmented, based on sales channel, as OEM and aftermarket. OEM segment dominates the global automotive curtain airbags market in terms of both, value and volume due to growing level of passive safety and the rise in demand for factory fitted curtain airbags. On the basis of coating type, the market has been segmented into neoprene coated, silicone coating, non-coated, and others. Neoprene coated segment had been dominating due to the rise in demand for heat shield, chemically stable coating, and easy deployability. On the basis of vehicle type, the market has been segmented into hatchbacks & sedans, SUV & crossovers, premium vehicles, and commercial vehicles. Premium vehicles segment had been dominating the global market for automotive curtain airbags. The rise in the level of passive safety within premium vehicles will enhance the demand for curtain airbags in premium vehicles during the forecast period. Based on regions, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the world.
