Automotive Seat Belt Pretensioner Market: Overview

 According to the report, the global automotive seat belt pretensioner market is likely to be driven by a range of macroeconomic and industry-specific factors. Asia Pacific is expected to be at the forefront of global demand, with the automotive seat belt pretensioner market in the region expanding at a CAGR of more than 5% between 2019 and 2027.

  • An automotive seat belt pretensioner retracts the seat belt to remove excess slack, almost instantly, upon sensing that the vehicle has crashed, typically by firing a pyrotechnic device. There are various types of automotive seat belt pretensioners, which are mostly installed in combination with other components of the seat belt system, such as retractors, buckles, and anchors.
  • In most cases, pyrotechnic pretensioners are used, which explode on sensing a sudden force, and retract the webbing of the seat belt to hold the occupant firmly on the seat. Other types of automotive seat belt pretensioners are motorized and mechanical pretensioners.
  • Motorized pretensioners are used in active seat belt systems, and can be used multiple times, whereas pyrotechnic pretensioners require replacement once the pretensioner is activated. The mechanical pretensioner is an obsolete technology, and is used very rarely in modern vehicles. 

Growth of the Automotive Seat Belt Pretensioner Market 

  • Road traffic injury is presently one among the leading causes of the death of children and young adults (aged 5 to 29 years), signaling the need for a shift in current road safety standards. Motor vehicle crashes currently represent the eighth-leading cause of deaths, globally.
  • According to the World Health Organization (WHO), deaths from road traffic crashes have increased to 1.35 million a year, which is nearly 3,700 people dying on the world’s roads every day.
  • A majority of drivers and passengers who lose their lives in motor vehicle crashes do not use the seat belt. The belt reduces the impact in case of a frontal collision, and helps avert fatal injuries. Hence, mandates by governments on the seat belt system are likely to create a positive impact on the automotive seat belt pretensioner market during the forecast period.

In terms of technology, the global automotive seat belt pretensioner market has been divided into retractors, buckles, and anchors. The retractors segment is likely to be a major market shareholder in the automotive seat belt pretensioner market, as most manufacturers prefer installing the pretensioner along with the retractor unit, since a combination of the retractor and pretensioner possesses a higher retraction force to hold the occupant firmly on the seat. The

buckle is another preferred combination for installing an automotive seat belt pretensioner, after the retractor. In some buckle pretensioners, mechanical pretensioners are used to retract the seat belt in case of sudden deceleration of the vehicle. 

Based on seat, the automotive seat belt pretensioner market has been divided into rear and front seat. The front seat segment is likely to hold a large share in the automotive seat belt pretensioner market, as pretensioners are installed in most of the front seats; on rear seats, only premium vehicle manufacturers provide pretensioner-equipped seat belts.

The adoption of high technology seat belts is likely to boost the market for automotive seat belt pretensioners over the forecast period. The adoption of advanced technology seat belts that are more expensive than those incorporated in rear seats contributed to the high market share held by the front seat segment in the automotive seat belt pretensioner market 2018. 

In terms of vehicle, the automotive seat belt pretensioner market has been divided into passenger vehicles, light commercial vehicles, and heavy commercial vehicles. The increasing demand for light commercial vehicles due to rising investments in SMEs (small and medium enterprises) is likely to propel the light commercial vehicle segment during the forecast period, which, in turn, is likely to boost the market for automotive seat belt pretensioners over the forecast period. 

Growth of the Automotive Seat Belt Pretensioner Market 

  • In terms of region, the global automotive seat belt pretensioner market has been segregated into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle East & Africa, and Latin America. Asia Pacific leads the global automotive seat belt pretensioner market.
  • The automotive seat belt pretensioner market in Asia Pacific is expanding due to the rising production of vehicles in the region. Furthermore, higher foreign investments in the region supplemented with a rise in the number of manufacturing sites in China, India, Japan, Indonesia, and South Korea are likely to augment the automotive seat belt pretensioner market in Asia Pacific during the forecast period.
