Implementation of Stringent Vehicle Safety Norms to Drive the Occupant Classification Systems Market Growth

The occupant classification systems market was valued at US$ 1.94 Bn in 2017 and expected to be growing at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.2 % from 2018 to 2026. Vehicle safety norms getting stringent by the day is one of the most important factors leading to the increasing deployment of occupant classification systems in vehicles across the world. Vehicle manufacturers are tasked with finding ways to protect vehicle occupants. The introduction of the seat belt was a first step in this safety evolution. However, wide range of vehicle occupants such as tall, short, baby, child etc. always stood as a challenge for the development of airbags. Moreover, the position of the passenger was also of prime importance in the case of side airbags. Therefore, in order to gather this type of data, vehicle manufacturers are implementing occupant classification systems. Government authorities have increased their focus towards imposing safety norms for new cars across various countries. Countries such as India, China and Brazil among others are expected to implement stringent vehicle safety norms in the coming years, thereby influencing the occupant classification systems market growth positively. However, public acceptance of safety technologies is impacted by high price, which often acts as a restraining factor for market growth. Moreover, regional disparities in regulations is another factor influencing the market growth negatively.
