About the Report

In the event of a crash, a seatbelt distributes the impact across the human body, thereby reducing the chance of any major injuries. Seatbelts also help secure passengers in place by providing safety and comfort. Seatbelts are mandatory and all car manufacturers provide cars fitted with front seatbelts.

Rising concerns regarding road safety have now paved the way for rear seatbelts as well. This has encouraged a majority of OEM and aftermarket companies to manufacture and sell rear seatbelts. This will help increase the demand and scope of seatbelts globally.

Automotive seatbelts have witnessed incremental growth in recent years. Following the effect of COVID-19, seatbelt manufacturing companies are attempting to regain their market shares. Sale and demand for vehicles decreased owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, but is expected to rise over the coming years, thereby providing scope for increased demand for automotive seatbelts.

What Makes Retractor Seatbelts Such a Popular Technology?

Retractor seatbelt technology is the most widely used. It has the highest share of the global market. When the occupant puts the belt on or off, the retractor allows the webbing to be pulled in and out. The buckle makes it easy for the occupant to fasten the belt.
