- Land Rover
The top three OEM segments in the global automotive external airbags market are:
Global automotive external airbags market for BMW
BMW has always been an early adopter of new safety and driver assistance features. It is the first OEM to introduce soft-close door in automobiles. The main advantage of BMW is that it is a globally recognized brand, both in the premium as well as luxury segments. BMW 7 series, the flagship model of BMW, has always differentiated itself in the market by initiating advanced features in the form of safety and luxury features.
According to Siddharth Jaiswal, a lead automotive electronics analyst from Technavio, “BMW has implemented external pedestrian airbags in its X5 model. Although its other models have implemented other passive PPSs like active hood, the company is skeptical about the large-scale adoption of pedestrian protection airbags. The shift of OEMs’ focus has been toward the development of active PPS, as prevention is better than cure.”
Global automotive external airbags market for Mercedes-Benz
The German automaker has always been the frontrunner in adopting advanced safety and luxury features. Mercedes-Benz has implemented external airbags in some models in the A class and C class. The company has been focusing on the collinear development of both active and passive PPSs. It has implemented passive PPSs like the active hood in many models.
Despite all the above initiatives, the company is still probing the market before full-scale implementation of pedestrian protection airbags. As a result, the adoption of external airbags in Mercedes-Benz will be slightly lower than the market average. However, the shifting focus of OEMs toward autonomous automobiles has motivated leading brands like BMW and Mercedes-Benz to enhance their safety offerings, which is the primary concern in autonomous automobiles.
Global automotive external airbags market for Land Rover
Land Rover is a brand of the British car manufacturer Jaguar Land Rover, which was acquired by Tata Motors, an Indian auto manufacturer. Some of the successful models of Land Rover include Defender, Range Rover Evoque, Freelander, Range Rover, Range Rover Sport and Discovery. The OEM has implemented pedestrian protection airbags in its newly launched model Discovery Sport.
“The European car manufacturer has always invested in the development of advanced safety features. For instance, Land Rover is the first OEM to equip its vehicles with hill descent control, a safety feature that controls the speed of the vehicle while descending a hill,” asserts Siddharth.
