Rise in cases of road accidents

Every year, approximately 1.3 million people are killed in road accidents, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). Road traffic accidents are now the leading cause of death among children and adults aged 5 to 29. According to the WHO, the number of road traffic accidents is expected to rise in the coming years, which is one of the major reasons that automotive airbag sales are expected to increase. Because low- and middle-income countries have the highest number of road accidents, Asia-Pacific and Latin America are prime markets for automotive airbags. Furthermore, increased consumer awareness of traffic rules and safety consciousness is driving demand for airbags to prevent serious injuries caused by road accidents, thereby boosting automotive airbag market growth.


High cost of automotive airbags and availability of counterfeit products

One of the major impediments is the high cost of automotive airbags. A significant amount of money is spent on the research, development, and design of an automotive airbag that protects the user's head and neck. Furthermore, the high cost of high-end and effective automotive airbags forces the middle-income group to settle for lower-quality and less-expensive airbags. Moreover, an increase in the number of Chinese manufacturers offering low-cost and counterfeit automotive airbags is impeding global market growth. Counterfeit products are in high demand due to the increased popularity of e-commerce platforms, which serves as a major threat factor in the global market.


Government regulations for curbing road accident numbers

For many countries, road traffic accidents have become a major concern. It is a leading cause of death among children and young adults worldwide. As a result, governments in various countries have launched initiatives and enacted stringent traffic regulations in order to reduce the number of road accidents. Furthermore, in most countries, the government requires passengers to use airbags. As a result, the government's increased role in improving road traffic conditions through stringent regulations, the construction of better roads, and the spread of awareness about the use of automotive airbags is expected to significantly contribute to the growth of the automotive airbag market during the forecast period.


Lack of consumer awareness

The global automotive airbag market is expected to be hampered by a lack of consumer awareness regarding road safety regulations, particularly in rural areas. The lack of government initiatives for promotion of automotive airbags as a road safety equipment is also hindering the growth of the automotive airbag market. Furthermore, a lack of government authorities to implement proper traffic regulations in rural areas of developing and underdeveloped countries is a major factor restraining consumer adoption of automotive airbags, which is expected to have a negative impact on market growth during the forecast period.
