Global Motorcycle Airbag System Market: Introduction

  • The motorcycle airbag system is effective in case of a frontal collision, where the rider is likely to be thrown forward onto the colliding object or other vehicle. The frontal collision, typically, constitutes around 68% of total motorcycle crashes, which can cause severe injury to the rider. The motorcycle airbag system absorbs the forward momentum of the rider and minimizes the chances of rider colliding with the other vehicle or object.
  • The motorcycle airbag system comprises an airbag, crash sensor, ECU, and inflator to inflate the airbag, which is mounted/ anchored to the body and prevents severe injuries arising out of a frontal collision.

Key Drivers and Restraints of Global Motorcycle Airbag System Market

  • Rise in sales of motorcycles, globally, as an affordable form of commute and leisure travel is expected to boost demand of motorcycle airbag system. The motorcycle is a highly preferred mode of transport in Asia Pacific. Rise in popularity of motorcycles in Latin America and Middle East & Africa is anticipated to further drive the demand for safety systems such as motorcycle airbag system.
  • Increase in demand for safety among riders and competition among motorcycle manufacturers is estimated to drive the motorcycle airbag system market
  • The motorcycle airbag deploys only in case of a frontal collision and hence, does not provide safety to the rider in case of collision from the rear, side, or in case of a fall. Airbag vests or jackets are an inexpensive alternative to the motorcycle airbag system, which acts as a restraint to the market.

Demand for airbag module and inflator to rise during forecast period

  • Manufacturers of airbag system components are moving toward vertical integration with airbag inflator suppliers undergoing forward integration to produce the airbag module and becoming competitors with their customers. The inflator is a vital component of the airbag system that inflates the airbag and hence, the inflator segment is estimated to expand significantly during the forecast period

Silicone coated air bag system to witness major demand

  • Silicone coating permits rapid deployment of the airbag and reduces air permissibility as compared to that of neoprene coated and uncoated airbags. Silicone coating offers high resistance to heat and pressure, which protects the airbag from damage caused by metal pieces caused by explosion of the metal canister to inflate the airbag. The silicone coated airbags are sturdy and efficient and hence, they are expected to witness higher demand in the motorcycle airbag system.

Nylon material to hold leading share of motorcycle airbag system market

  • Nylon is widely preferred for airbags as they have superior energy-absorbing capacity, as compared to nylon. Nylon 6.6, Nylon 6, and Nylon 4.6 material airbags witness considerable demand and hence, the nylon segment is anticipated to hold a leading share of the motorcycle airbag system market.

Aftermarket segment to lead motorcycle airbag system market

  • The aftermarket segment is likely to exceed the OEM demand during the forecast period, as the airbag system once deployed would need replacement

Asia Pacific to lead global motorcycle airbag system market

  • In terms of region, the global motorcycle airbag system market can be divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa
  • North America and Europe, together, are expected to account for a leading share of the global motorcycle airbag system market by 2027. Consumers in North America and Europe have high purchasing power and higher spending and awareness about safety systems. Asia Pacific recorded highest sales of motorcycles, globally, and consequently, offers significant opportunity to the market. The market in Asia Pacific is estimated to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period, owing to a rise in safety concerns and increase in sales of premium motorcycles.
