LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Technavio has announced the top six leading vendors in their recent global automotive smart seating systems market report. To calculate the market size, the report considers the unit shipment of smart seats in vehicles across all regions.
|In terms of units, the global market for automotive smart seating systems will grow moderately at a CAGR of almost 9% by 2020.|
In the recent past, smart seating was largely restricted to luxury cars. However, due to advances in technology, Technavio analysts expect the rapid adoption of smart seating in commercial vehicles (CV) and mid-segment cars. The other aspect that is promoting adoption is the effort from aftermarket players in reducing the price of the system to push OEMs toward adoption in the mid segment.
Rising disposable income and comfort requirement from vehicles in regions like China and India will continue to drive the adoption of luxury cars, which will allow the luxury cars segment to maintain its dominant position in smart seating. Additionally, the dominant market for luxury cars will shift from the Americas to APAC during the forecast period, owing to favorable demographics.
Competitive vendor landscape
Currently, the automotive smart seating market has limited manufacturers in the international level. However, regions like the US and Europe have many regional players through the aftermarket, and the market is characterized by rapid technological innovations. Investments toward developing innovative designs, in terms of safety and added features, are expected to continue during the forecast period. The possible introduction of new OEMs will spur intensify the competition among existing players during the forecast period. However, these factors will benefit the customer in terms of cost as well as performance.
“Johnson Controls is the market leader in the global smart seating market, with maximum sales coming from the US. Johnson Controls is the leading player in the total automotive seat market too, and is actively involved in the development of smart seats. The continuous evolution of smart seats for the automotive market by the company, in terms of safety and added benefits, allowed it to consolidate its leadership position,” says Siddharth Jaiswal, a lead automotive electronics analyst from Technavio.
Lear Corporation is the another leading player in the smart seating market. The company is focused on the development of intelligent smart seat using a new generation of biosensors, and is expected to launch its variant of advanced smart seats by 2018. Additionally, it already has a letter of intent from one premium automaker, and strong interest from a second for its yet to be launched smart seats.
