A smart helmet is a new type of equipment combined with high- tech functionalities to upgrade an ordinary helmet to intelligent functions. Smart helmets and visual command systems are now widely used in emergency rescue industries such as firefighting purposes, sporting events as well as for military purposes.
The smart helmets are embedded with sensors and additional mounted devices that collect data and information which assist the users. Action cameras and GPS navigation systems are other features that protect users from any head injury. Smart helmets are helpful in situational awareness and improve efficiency by offering primary information to users.
Global Smart Helmet Market estimated to grow with a momentous rate over the forecast period, 2020-2027. The rising need for security, safety, and comfortable journey are responsible for the mounting demand for smart helmets. Additionally, the smart helmets designed to provide complete safety measures that contain a flexible inner layer, which becomes hard during an unexpected situation, and it sends alert messages to friends and family in critical situations with a single press. Moreover, the production of various hi-tech two-wheelers and the rising number of fatal accidents are spurring the market for smart helmets globally.
The rising concerns of consumers regarding road safety likely to create a huge demand for smart helmets in the forecast period. Along with personal safety, other factors that derive the demand of the smart helmet are in-built GPS, Bluetooth connections, and cameras installed in the smart helmet that helps in assisting users and provide a safer and comfortable journey. Bluetooth can be connected to smartphones via apps to monitor the statistic. Further, smart helmets have a geo-fencing and collision detector system. These factors will boost the demand for the smart helmet in the future market.
In modern times, technology has enhanced the various aspect of life and made it more comfortable and secure. Similarly, the smart helmet provides the combination of a smart and safe journey to its users by assisting them with various facilities that make the journey easier of any cyclists, motorcyclists, industrial labor, and people working on construction sites. The smart helmets help in avoiding fatal accidents on roads or any construction sites as it has an inner layer in it that gets hard at the time of the accident and saves the users from severe accidents.
The high-tech technology in smart helmets provide a 360-degree view to the users and helps in detecting the traffic on the road, in-built headphones, Bluetooth and GPS guidelines make it convenient for the users to make their work on sites or journey smooth and safer.
Based on the product, the global smart helmets bifurcated into the full-face smart helmet and half face smart helmets. Full face smart helmets segment estimated to dominate the market. Full face smart helmets designed explicitly for the cyclists, motorcyclists, to provide a better and safer experience.
The half-face smart helmets designed for the construction workers. These smart helmets are lightly weighted manufactured by advanced carbon fiber and fiberglass reinforced plastic material integrated with technology and electronics, which helps in providing safety from any serious head injury.
Based on components, the global smart helmets segmented into communication, navigation, and cameras. Cameras have the highest demand among components, owing to smart helmets that have a 360-degree feature camera that covers the full site and workers working around the construction site.
Smart helmets provide a communicating device to the user with their family and friend by pressing a single button. In contrast, GPS facility enables the user to identify the right direction, traffic on roads, and sensors for geofencing.
Based on the application, the global smart helmet market categorized into Automation, industrial, and construction. Automation has captured significant market share in 2019, due to its advanced technology like microcontroller board in smart helmet helps in calling the ambulance. Additionally, vibration sensors placed in different places of the helmet that connected to the microcontroller board used to give the signal to the microcontroller board, in case of an accident happen.
Based on geography, the global smart helmet market segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and Middle East & Africa. North America region expected to witness higher growth in the forecast period due to the rising high-security concerns and measures taken by the government.
The Asia Pacific market will grow based on countries such as China and Japan, as they are planning to implement a lightweight smart helmet that will capture the significant share in the market.
