Some technological advancements in automotive passive safety system market are mentioned below:

Life-Cell Airbags: Autoliv has introduced Life-Cell airbags. This provides protection regardless of the occupant's position. When activated in conjunction with the deployment of the steering wheel airbag, the Life-Cell airbag acts like a protective cocoon.

Mixed Active and Passive Systems: Joyson Safety Systems is currently working on developing an intelligent airbag with an integrated restraint system that is a mix of active and passive safety based on HMI. New advances in electrically powered safety belts and multi-chamber airbags are expected soon. These seat belts are custom designed to improve crash rating requirements. OEMs aiming for good star ratings will install such systems shortly.

External Pre-Crash Airbags: ZF has introduced external pre-crash airbags that deploy outward from the sides of the vehicle. These airbags act as additional crumple zones in the event of an accident. Tests have shown it can help reduce the severity of occupant injuries by up to 40%. Self-driving cars will continue to improve the travel experience. ZF develops restraint systems, such as seat belts and airbags, to protect occupants in flexible seating positions. ZF has designed the airbags to adapt to the position of the occupants and new degrees of freedom in the passenger compartment.

The automotive passive safety system market size has been analyzed on the basis of the following segments: type, vehicle type, and geography. Based on type, the automotive passive safety system market can be categorized into airbags, seatbelts, occupant sensing systems, child safety systems, and others. The airbags segment is expected to dominate the automotive passive safety system market during the forecast period.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Automotive Passive Safety System Market


Exports of airbags, seatbelts, pedestrian safety systems, and other automotive components in Europe dramatically decreased during the COVID-19 pandemic in April and May 2020. Negative impacts on the automotive sector were more severe, due to which OEMs announced further delays in re-opening closed assembly plants, and vehicle sales plummeted in the region. Europe is home to many top automakers, such as Mercedes, Volkswagen, Skoda, BMW, and Audi. The pandemic indirectly impacted over 1.1 million jobs due to the shutdowns of auto factories between March and May 2020. Subsequent lockdowns had a more limited impact on production, but in 2021 the auto sector was challenged by the rising global demand for semiconductors due to a boom in the production of electronics parts and disruptions in the supply chains.

The auto sector also constitutes one of the main supply chains in Europe. Foreign demand is important for the European auto sector, including demand in major economies outside the region, such as the US and China. In the automotive industry, the immediate drop in demand for vehicles, coupled with the disruptions in the supply of raw materials caused by the limitations in cross-border movements over Q1 2020, caused supply delays of automotive components, such as airbags, seatbelts, and others. In 2020, vehicle production in Europe dropped by more than one-fifth: 4.5 million fewer cars were produced relative to 2019, according to an IMF report.
