Seat belt beeper, also termed as seat belt alarm, alerts the driver or occupant via a signal when the seat belt is not properly fastened. A buzzer, or a flash-light on the dashboard, is prominently used as an alert for the driver or occupant in the vehicle.
Government and automotive associations’ regulations and rules enacted for vehicle manufacturers or OEMs have made seat belt beeper mandatory on all vehicles. Consequently, the production of seat belt beeper is directly related to the production of vehicles. Increase in the production of vehicles at a rate of nearly 4% is likely to boost the production of automotive seat belt beeper. Increasing road casualties is a major concern in various developed nations. Most fatalities are related to rash driving. The automotive speed alert system is used in order to improve the safety system and avoid such fatalities. These factors are propelling the automotive seat belt beeper market.
The automotive seat belt beeper market can be segmented based on technology, seat type, design, seat belt system technology, sales channel, vehicle type, and region.
Based on technology, the automotive seat belt beeper market can be classified into emergency locking beeper, automatic locking beeper, and switchable beeper.
Based on seat type, the automotive seat belt beeper market can be divided into front seat, rear seat, and child seat.
In terms of design, the automotive seat belt beeper market can be bifurcated into two-point, three-point, and four-point & above. Four-point & above design provides extra protection and is generally integrated or incorporated in with sports cars. Therefore, the segment held a relatively minor share of the market.
Based on seat belt system technology, the automotive seat belt beeper market can be segregated into active seat belt system and passive seat belt system. Beepers used in active seat belt system is coupled with electronic system of the vehicle. Advancements in technology have led to enhanced features offered by active seat belt systems, which are likely to have more user-friendly interface in the vehicle. This in turn is estimated to propel the the seat belt beeper market in the near future.
Based on vehicle type, the automotive seat belt beeper market can be split into passenger vehicles and commercial vehicles. The utility vehicle sub-segment is anticipated to hold a major share of the passenger vehicles segment of the market during the forecast period. The utility vehicle sub-segment includes SUVs, crossovers, and MPVs. Demand for utility vehicles is rising across the globe as they offer enhanced driving comfort and superior drivability on off-road conditions.
According to sales channel, the automotive seat belt beeper market can be bifurcated into OEM and aftermarket. The OEM segment is likely to hold a major share of the market, as the seat belt beeper is rarely replaces.
In terms of region, the automotive seat belt beeper market can be divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and Latin America. Asia Pacific accounts for the major share of the global automotive seat belt beeper market, owing to higher production of vehicles, especially in China and India. Establishment of production plants of major OEMs from Japan and South Korea, such as Toyota and Kia, in ASEAN and India is likely to boost production of vehicles in developing countries.
Global players operating in the market for automotive seat belt beepers are Standex-Meder Electronics, Piher Sensors & Controls, TE Connectivity, Olea Sensor Networks, ZF Friedrichshafen, Autoliv Inc., Amber Valley, and Mouser Electronics.
