India Car Airbag Market Dynamics


The burgeoning demand for airbags in the Indian car airbag market is attributed to increasing consumer awareness about vehicle and passenger safety, strict government regulations, and several other factors. With vehicular population tripled in a decade in India, road density has failed to grow at similar pace, which has led to increased road and accidents and fatalities. As a result, Indian roads are treated as most unsafe roads globally. This had triggered government and regulatory bodies to mandate the application of airbags in cars, which acts as a major driver for the growth of the industry.

High initial cost and much exorbitant replacement cost act as the major restraints for the Indian car airbag market.

This also makes it a waste of resource and a non-sustainable practice.
