Global Automotive Airbags and Seatbelts Market Overview:

Automotive Airbags is passive safety (see car safety performance) protection system. It is used in conjunction with seat belts to provide adequate collision protection for occupants. When a car collides, a car airbag can reduce the head injury rate by 25% and the facial injury rate by about 80%. It is mainly composed of airbag sensors, anti-collision airbags, and electronic control devices. The driver’s side crash airbag device is in the steering wheel; the passenger’s side crash airbag device is generally installed on the dashboard. The seat belts are essential passive safety parts, which play a role in restraining displacement and buffering. When a collision accident occurs, the seat belt is locked by an internal locking mechanism, thereby binding the occupant to the seat, and reducing the risk of a second collision of the occupant.
