Asia-Pacific is Leading the Automotive Interiors Market

The Asian-Pacific market is driven by the small/economy car segment, which accounts for higher adoption of interior components. Leading automakers in this region, such as Toyota, Honda, and Hyundai, are embracing the advantages of advanced seating systems, lighting, electronics, and various safety systems, making them essential features across their car models. The emergence of electric vehicles in major economies, including Japan, China, and India, further supports the market value.

In April 2022, Chinese passenger car production reached 996,000 units, with sales registering 965,000 units. This accounts for the downfall of 41.9% and 43.4% respectively in production and sales compared to the previous year. In 2022, from January to April, passenger car production decreased by 2.6% year-on-year, registering 6,494 million units.

In China, local players are collaborating to produce the best interior products. For instance, BAIC Yunxiang Automobile Co. Ltd collaborated with ADAYO to develop vehicle infotainment systems. This partnership will build new platforms for BAIC Yinxiang and helps to restructure the platform production mode for intelligent vehicle manufacturing. Chinese players are debuting in the market with a new vision to provide growth to the market. For instance, In November 2021, China’s leading automotive supplier for interior components, Yanfeng Automotive Interiors (YFAI), introduced an industry-first camera under panel onboard intelligent screen, which is co-developed with TCL and its subsidiary TCL CSOT.

The demand for premium interiors, comfort, and new and innovative features, like head-up displays and navigation systems, along with the growing focus on sufficing the safety standards, is driving the market in the region. Major countries in this region, such as China, Japan, India, and South Korea, are anticipated to witness the rapid adoption of new technologies. Due to its high vehicle production capacity, China is expected to contribute to Asia-Pacific's market growth significantly.

In Asia-Pacific, government initiatives, such as subsidies and tax concessions, across various countries are attracting automotive OEMs to build their regional manufacturing plants.

Competitive Landscape

Key automotive interior market participants are Continental AG, Magna International Inc., Denso Corporation, Faurecia, Adient, and Others. The automotive interiors market is likely to expect competition in the coming years, owing to various strategies, such as focused research and development activities, new product developments, acquisitions, etc., by significant product manufacturers to gain a competitive advantage.
