Automotive Anti-Pinch Power Window System Market Overview

The automotive anti-pinch power window system market size is expected to be valued at $3,611.2 million by 2023, witnessing a CAGR of 12.0% during the forecast period. Automotive anti-pinch is a safety system used in the power windows of a car. The technology prevents the winding up of the window if it senses any obstacle in the path of the glass. The electric motor is fitted with a sensor that can sense the resistive force acting against the motion of the glass. As soon as the motor detects an obstacle, the closing action stops immediately and it starts operating in reverse direction. The anti-pinch power window systems help to bring down the window to avoid any injury to the occupant. The use of anti-pinch window is mandated in many countries worldwide, and this feature is provided by many automakers.

Automotive Anti-Pinch Power Window System Market Dynamics

The major factors driving its growth in automatic segment in the automotive anti-pinch power window system market is rise in vehicle electrification and growing awareness toward advanced safety features. Passenger cars were the largest user of automotive anti-pinch power window systems due to rapidly growing automotive industry, especially in emerging countries including India, China, Brazil and South Africa, which are generating significant demand for anti-pinch power window. Europe and North America collectively accounted for more than 69% in the global automotive anti-pinch power window system market in 2016, owing to increase in manufacturing of passenger cars in countries, such as China, India, U.S. and Mexico. Rise in passenger car export in developing countries such as India, Brazil and South Africa is driving the growth of market. Stringent government regulations towards vehicle safety in these regions are expected to further drive its market. Europe was the largest market for automotive anti-pinch power window systems in 2016 and is further expected to witness an increase in demand due to rising demand of luxury passenger cars.


The key trend in the automotive anti-pinch system market is strong growth in demand of luxury vehicles in developing countries, which are mostly equipped with anti-pinch feature. Increasing disposable income of a section of the population, which is the target audience for such products, is aiding the growth of luxury cars in developed countries. Leading automakers, including Audi, BMW, General Motors, Honda, Hyundai, Land Rover, Lexus, Mercedes-Benz, Tata Motors, Toyota Motors and Volvo offer anti-pinch feature as a standard or optional offering in some of their cars.
