Automotive seat belt height adjuster offers several benefits; however, the market faces a couple of limitations. The electrically operated seat belt height adjuster consists of sensors and other mechatronic components for automatic operation of seat belts in the vehicle. This leads to higher maintenance and replacement cost of the electrical operated seat belt height adjuster in the event of malfunction. On the other hand, manually operated seat belt height adjuster requires physical intervention, adjusting the shoulder height of the vehicle, which is a bit cumbersome activity. These factors are likely to hinder the demand for seat belt height adjuster among consumers.

The global automotive seat belt height adjuster market has been segmented based on technology, seat, vehicle, and region. Based on technology, the automotive seat belt height adjuster market can be segregated into manual and automatic. Automatic is a highly attractive segment of the automotive seat belt height adjuster market. This is primarily due to a surge in the demand from consumers to opt for highly advanced safety and comfort features in vehicles, as these seat belts adjust their height electronically.

In terms of seat, the global automotive seat belt height adjuster market has been split into front and rear. The front segment leads the global automotive seat belt height adjuster market. Majority of vehicles are equipped with front seat belt height adjuster, as the impact of collision on the front seats is comparatively higher and improper adjustment of the seat belt may result in severe injuries.
