Increasing integration of advanced luxury features in seats
Advances in automotive technology and systems are leading the global automotive industry towards the future of autonomous vehicles. Automakers have been investing proactively in the advanced comfort enhancing and convenience systems to make their product distinctive in nature. The changing buying criteria and dynamics of the automotive market have compelled automakers to increase the adaption rate of such systems in their product portfolio.
As part of the comfort and convenience package, automotive memory seat system was initially introduced only in the passenger seat. The system was well received by customers and is presently experiencing growing demand and popularity. The increasing competition in the automotive industry with growing demand for comfort systems has led to the integration of ventilated and memory seats even in the co-passenger and rear seats. By incorporating advanced comfort and convenience systems of their flagship models, automakers have raised the levels of luxury offering.
“Many leading automakers have increased the penetration rate of ventilated and memory seats by making them not limited to passenger or front seats only. The rear seat system of modern premium and luxury car segment is luxurious than ever. With integrating features such as memory functions, ventilated seats, seat massager, seat recliner, and lumbar and thigh support, automakers are giving special attention to detail in the rear seats,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on automotive electronics.
