Along with seat belts, air bags are a critical safety component of modern day cars and trucks. The following two reports take a closer look at the global air bag fabric and inflator markets.
In 1991, the United States Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act went into effect; thus, requiring all passenger cars and light trucks manufacturers after September 1, 1998 to have air bags for both the driver and passenger side. While some automakers were turned away by this law, there's no denying its positive, life-saving effects.
While exact numbers remain unknown, the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that airbags have saved more than 147,000 lives from 1975 to 2001.
Of course, the total number of lives saved by airbags has increased since then, though these are the most recent reports released by the NHTSA.
The 2017 Global Automotive Airbag Fabric Industry Research report by The Market Reports is a comprehensive study of the global automotive airbag fabric market. Not all fabrics are suitable for use in automotive air bags.
If the fabric is too thin and weak, it may bust upon impact or deployment. And conventional wisdom should lead you to believe that a busted air bag is not going to offer any level of protection from injury.
This report explores both current and future prospective scenarios surrounding the global automotive airbag fabric market. On the basis of product type, the report segments the market by flat fabric and OPW.
On the basis of product type, the market is segmented by passenger cars, commercial vehicle and others. In essence, this is a complete and detailed overview of the global automotive airbag fabric market.
Some of the key airbag fabric vendors profiled in this report include Hyosung, Toray, Kolon, Safety Components, HMT, Takata, Porcher, UTT, Milliken, Dual and others.
The Global Automotive Airbag Inflator …y Market Research report by The Market Reports is another comprehensive air bag study, though it focuses specifically on the inflator side of the market. A typical automotive airbag system works by using sensors to determine when an impact occurs.
Upon detecting impact (collision), the on-board computer sends a signal to the inflator, telling it to deploy the airbag. This is typically done using a chemical reaction with nitrogen gas, causing the airbag to fill rapidly.
As the airbag inflates, it's projected through the driver and/or passenger side, protecting the individuals from injury.
Featuring insight from industry professionals along with tables, figures, statistics and more, this report explores the global automotive airbag inflator market. Among other things, it provides a detailed analysis of the market, revealing the market's trends, classifications, definitions, cost, price, revenue, key regions and more.
