The global automotive safety airbag market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.16% during the forecast period, reaching a total market size of US$19.264 billion in 2024 from US$14.245 billion in 2018. The rising number of road accidents worldwide is the major driver of the global automotive safety airbag market. According to the WHO (World Health Organization) latest data, around 1.3 million road accidents take place every year across the globe. In order to combat this growing number of deaths due to road accidents, governments across various countries are implementing stringent regulations and standards in order to minimize fatalities and reduce injuries due to accidents. For example, in 2017, the Indian government made it mandatory to fit at least one airbag in all passenger vehicles. Thus, improved and stricter road safety standards, especially in developing countries will continue to fuel the demand for different airbags, thus positively impacting the growth of the global automotive safety airbags market during the next five years. However, high cost and low reliability of airbags offered by aftermarket airbag installation is currently hindering the overall growth of the global automotive safety airbags market.
