Airbag installation is likely to become mandatory in all regions owing to stringent road safety regulations across the globe, which is anticipated to boost the market for all air bags along with knee airbags at a remarkable pace.
Knee Airbag Market for Automotive - Segmentation
The global knee airbag market for automotive can be segmented based on position, weight sensor, sales channel, and vehicle. In terms of position, driver’s side is expected to be a leading segment of the knee airbag market for automotive. A driver’s safety is primary, and the driver is more prone to injure his knees in case of a collision, since the legs of the driver are booth engaged under the dashboard for controlling the vehicle.

Based on the sales channel, the OEM segment is likely to hold a major share of the knee airbag market for automotive; however, the aftermarket segment is expanding at a significant pace. Moreover, manufacturers provide airbags as a standard component in all passenger vehicles; however, knee airbags are still provided by a limited number of manufacturers.
In terms of vehicle, the passenger vehicle segment is anticipated to hold a prominent share of the knee airbag market for automotive by the end of the forecast period due to higher production of passenger vehicles across the globe. Furthermore, commercial vehicles with knee airbags are very limited in number.
In terms of region, Asia Pacific is expected to hold a notable share of the global knee airbag market for automotive owing to the high production of the vehicles in the region. China, Japan, and India are key markets in Asia Pacific, which contribute to the significant share held by the region in the global knee airbag market for automotive. Europe is another leading market for the knee airbags, owing to technological developments and high rate of adoption of technologies in the region.
