  • September 2019: Hyundai Mobis developed a freshly new Safety Integrated Control Module. This system integrates two separate electronic control modules for airbags and electronic seatbelts into one single unit and would also augment the reliability and efficiency of these devices.
  • February 2019: Rane TRW Steering Pvt Ltd which is a joint venture between Rane TRW Steering and ZF Group, went on with its plans of expansion by opening a novel facility in Tamil Nadu for the manufacturing of occupant safety products, in order to catalyze the production of seat belt assemblies and airbags.

COVID-19 Insights

The COVID-19 pandemic caused a disruption in the automotive supply chain worldwide. The outbreak did not only disrupt production facilities around the world for these parking sensors but also negatively affected vehicle sales globally. For instance, in China, sales fell by 71% in February and by April, the US and Europe experienced a plunge of 47% and 80% respectively. Even the sales of the commercial vehicles of Tata Motors dipped from 36,955 units to 14,435 units between March 2021-April 2021, which impacted the parking sensor installations in vehicles. This automatically decreased the demand for parking sensors, leading to a decline in the market. Furthermore, the budget allocated for R&D was also significantly affected during this period, which deeply affected the development of fresh and innovative automotive parking sensors.  The demand for this lighting equipment is directly proportional to vehicle production and with the outbreak of COVID-19, this demand for significantly disrupted.
