Automotive Power Seats Market: Introduction
Automotive power seats are those seats that can be adjusted by a switch and a set of small motors. Mostly, these seats are at the front of a vehicle, and most cars have these seats only for the driver. However, with the increasing demand for luxurious cars, automobile manufacturers are providing both the front seats of passenger cars as power seats. In addition to fore & aft movement, these automotive power seats can be lowered, raised, and tilted to suit the comfort of the driver/passenger/occupant. In many vehicles, automobile OEMs allow passengers/occupants to adjust the seat as a recliner. All these functions can easily be operable with a help of switch.
Nowadays, all prominent manufacturers of automobiles are adopting this technology in their vehicles in order to provide comfort to the passengers. Moreover, in commercial vehicles, automobile OEMs provide power seats in both front seats. The growth of the global market for automotive power seats is increasing with the arrival of new technologies and innovations.
