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.
The installation of airbags increases the safety quotient of the vehicle, but it increases the cost of vehicle up to some extent. High initial cost and much exorbitant replacement cost act as the major restraints for the Indian car airbag market. According to the end-of-life vehicle (EVL) dismantling and recycling guideline by Government of India (GOI), airbags comes under the category of non-recyclable products. This also makes it a waste of resource and a non-sustainable practice.
