Commercial vehicles have wider blind spots owing to their relatively large size to passenger cars. Moreover, design factors of these vehicles prohibit the deployment of passive systems in these vehicles. However, vehicle manufactures including Daimler, Volvo and Subaru have started integrating their vehicles with active safety technologies which will present viable growth landscape over the forecast period.

Passenger car accounted for the largest automotive pedestrian protection system market share by volume in 2017. High deployment of these active and passive safety in these vehicles is expected to fuel the industry growth. GM, Daimler, Volvo, Ford, Toyota and Honda are some key OEM’s that have already deployed these advanced safety technologies in several car models.

The electronic protection system provided by Bosch, for instance, delivers an effective method to reduce the impact of a collision on the pedestrian and engine components, representing the advancement of the automotive pedestrian protection systems industry. The system comprises peripheral sensors, located in the front part of a vehicle, and an airbag control unit for launching the airbags in the vehicle’s A pillars. On impact, actuators are triggered which can lift the engine hood within milliseconds and the pedestrian is allowed to collide against a more effective crumple zone, minimizing injury risks. As such, Bosch’s electronic protection system is cost-effective, active impact protection that also fulfills all the legal requirements associated with the automotive pedestrian protection system market in Europe.

Active technologies are expected to witness highest growth rate owing to the requirement to detect the human movement and warn the user or evade the accident through integrating with the steering control. This helps in eliminating the possibility of collision in time. Moreover, requirement to detect obstacles in bad lighting or steep turns is expected to provide strong growth prospects for automotive pedestrian protection system market through the forecast period.

Passive automotive pedestrian protection system market is expected to continue its dominance through the forecast period. This can be attributed to high adoption of passive safety in passenger vehicles and applications for reduction in impact of frontal collisions. This includes external airbags and pop-up hoods which gets activated on collision and aids in reducing the severity of impact on the victim’s body.

Effective working of safety systems requires the vehicle to operate at specified speed limits. Requirement to ensure mitigation of road accidents, these technologies are required to perform efficiently at all speeds. Manufacturers have made substantial development in the detection technologies to provide improved customer safety. Moreover, high cost associated with the deployment and replacement of the passive technologies once activated will hinder the automotive pedestrian protection system market growth.
