The Automotive Safety Systems market accounted for USD 88 billion in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 120 Billion by 2026, projecting a CAGR of over 6% during the forecast period.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the automotive industry as a whole was severely affected. The buyer did not have enough finances, to make either new vehicles or used vehicle purchases. With the worldwide production facilities shut down and strict social distancing norms in place, the need for manufacturing new safety systems or installing them in the vehicles has drastically reduced.

However, after the Covid-19 pandemic, the market expects to improve, owing to the increased preference for individual mobility. The market is expected to grow significantly in terms of passenger vehicle and commercial vehicle safety systems due to the projected increase in demand. The rise in autonomous vehicles that are projected in the coming years is a great opportunity for the safety systems market.

North America is expected to account for a major share of the market studied, especially in the United States, as most of the new-generation passenger cars are likely to be equipped with Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and blind-spot detection (BSD), as standard features. Companies, such as Continental AG, Robert Bosch, ZF Group, and Denso Corporation, are some of the major players in the market studied.

Advanced Driver Assistant Systems (ADAS) are on high demand, owing to the number of accidents occuring on high speed roads every year. OEM's are continuously engineering and pioneering crucial safety systems on cars, trucks and any automobile out there.
Governments of many countries across the world are making certain important safety regulations to standardize the systems across all vehicles.

Key Market Trends

Lane Departure Warning Systems Witnessing High Demand

Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) is a group of safety technologies, which have been designed primarily to prevent high-speed accidents on highways, expressways, and freeways. They warn the driver and sometimes take corrective measures and prevent collisions and run-off-road accidents.

The consistent rise in vehicle accidents, resulting due to abrupt lane change, has been creating concerns among both consumers and governments across the world. Thus, continuous technological advancements in the automotive industry are constantly ensuing in adding new features to automobiles to reduce road accidents and enhance the safety of both passengers and drivers in both vehicles. This, in turn, is driving the implementation of advanced driver assistant systems (ADAS), which may aid in propelling the market for LDWS.

Apart from passenger cars, the demand for LDWS is also increasing in commercial vehicles, especially in large trucks. Research shows, majority of accidents caused in both passenger and commercial vehicles is due to human error and there are safety systems currently available, that can mitigate this.

The cost-benefit analysis performed on the LDWS technology states that installing LDWS in large trucks could potentially prevent as many as 6,372 crashes, 1,342 injuries, and 115 death annually.

Gradually Improving Trust in Autonomous Vehicles

The increasing number of Electric vehicles in the automotive industry is paving the way for a larger number of autonomous vehicles to be introduced in different sectors. The more autonomous vehicles in a market, the better is the chance and potential for the current safety systems market to grow and expand.

Surveys suggest that buyers from several countries are starting to trust autonomous or self-driving vehicles. For instance, out of 1000 people surveyed, 81 people in South Korea have expressed their concerns about safety in self-driving vehicles in 2017, whereas this number has come down to 46 in 2020. This can largely be owed to the smooth testing and runs of autonomous vehicles in the South Asian region.

The United States, on the other hand, had a comparatively lower number of people trusting autonomous vehicles, owing to certain mishaps caused by Tesla's autopilot and Uber's self-driving vehicles in the country over the period.

Because the majority of the automotive sector in North America already equipped with majority of safety systems, the market can be called as saturated from what the condition was, a few years ago. Countries in South Eastern Asia and Pacific regions, China and India are showing much higher potential for growth and are expected to be markets with high growth rate in the coming years. Thus, all the factors pointing towards increased autonomous vehicles, can indirectly be the indicators of increased market potential for safety systems industry.

Competitive Landscape

The automotive safety systems market is highly competitive and fragmented, with both safety systems manufacturers and OEMs competing with each other. Some of the major players dominating the market are Continental AG, Robert Bosch, ZF Friedrichshafen AG, Denso Corp., Magna International, and Hyundai Mobis, Autoliv, among others. The competitive nature of the industry is likely to intensify due to stringent regulations and rising consumer demand for advanced features and automotive safety.

Autoliv, a leading passive safety systems manufacturer for different vehicles, registered a market value of USD 8.7 Billion in the FY2020. It's customers include leading automakers like Renalut, Nissan, Mitsubishi and Volkswagen, which account for more than 15% of the company's sales.
