How Rising Safety Concerns Play an Important Role in Automotive Wipers Market?

Rapid urbanization, rising population, and rising vehicle ownership are driving the global market for automotive wipers. As a result of growing safety concerns, there is an increase in demand for windscreen wipers in passenger and commercial vehicles, which is boosting the automotive wiper market. The introduction of numerous strict initiatives by governments to require the installation of windscreen wipers in vehicles to allow them to obtain an adequate view of the road and prevent road accidents is the other significant factor fuelling the growth of the automotive wiper market. According to the European Commission, road accidents will kill an estimated 18,800 people in 2020. Fortunately, this figure was 17% lower than in 2019. This means that nearly 4,000 fewer people died on EU roads in 2020. Despite this decrease, the responsibility for road accident fatalities remains high, with weather-related road deaths estimated to cost more than £15 billion per year. As a result, automobile manufacturers are outfitting vehicles with cutting-edge safety features, such as wipers, to improve visibility in these adverse weather conditions.
