The global market for Automotive Airbags is projected to exceed 600 million units by 2022, driven by the standardization and mandatory integration of passive safety systems in virtually every car being manufactured, and development of new air bag technologies that promise to open revenue opportunities especially in the high-end vehicles segment. The rise in accidents has resulted in several governments worldwide mandating installation of airbags in all types of automobiles. Asia-Pacific represents the largest and the fastest growing market worldwide with a CAGR of 9.8% over the analysis period. The growth in the region is led by regulatory mandates for frontal driver airbags, rise in motor vehicle related accidents as a result of improper road infrastructure, together with encouraging macro market trends such as stable automobile production activity, economic growth, increase in disposable incomes and a parallel increase in per capita vehicle ownership rates.
