    Market Insights

    Airbag yarns refer to the specialized yarn used in the manufacturing of airbags. There are majorly two types of yarns: polyamide and polyester. Airbag yarn needs to be strong and resistant to tearing to withstand the force of the airbag inflating rapidly. Production and development of yarn require specialized knowledge and are subject to stringent safety regulations and quality control standards to ensure the reliability and effectiveness of airbags in protecting vehicle occupants during accidents.

    The automotive airbag yarn market witnessed a colossal decline (-12.4% in 2020) amid the pandemic, slightly low than that of the decline in automobile production. In 2021, the market experienced an impressive growth rate owing to the recovery in automobile production, especially in China.

    Increasing numbers of road accidents are compelling the governments of many countries to introduce more stringent passenger safety regulations, in which making airbags compulsory in all types of vehicles is the most common. Major players are strategically opting for both organic as well as inorganic growth routes in order to capture the maximum growth potential. Some players have recently announced to expand their existing production capacities of airbag yarns to meet the shooting demand, whereas some players are opting for M&A strategies to quickly gain a leading position in the market. Overall, the automotive airbag yarn market is expected to grow at a healthy CAGR of 5.0% over the next five years to reach an annual market size of US$ 1.5 billion in 2028.

    Based on the vehicle type, the automotive airbag yarn market is segmented into cars, C/SUVs, pickups, vans, MPV, and sports cars. C/SUV is expected to remain the market's largest and fastest-growing vehicle type category during the forecast period. Increasing demand for SUVs in major Asian countries, such as China and India, and highly congested cities of the developed economies are the major drivers of the demand for yarns for airbags in these vehicle types. The introduction of more stringent passenger safety standards further elevates the demand for airbag yarns in these vehicle types. 

    Based on the airbag type, the market is segmented into driver airbags, passenger airbags, side airbags, knee airbags, and curtain airbags. Curtain airbag is expected to remain the dominant as well as the faster-growing airbag type in the market during the forecast period. Curtain airbags are increasingly being used in developing nations where frontal airbags already have an excellent penetration level in the automobile fleet.

    Based on the yarn type, the market is segmented into polyamide yarns and polyester yarns. Polyamide is likely to remain the most dominant yarn type in the automotive airbag yarn market during the forecast period. Mainly polyamide 6.6 yarn is used in airbags, with little usage of polyamide 6 yarn. Polyester yarns are preferred for making side and curtain airbags and are rapidly gaining a share in the market. Another advantage that polyester yarns bring to the table is that has a significantly lower price than polyamide yarns.

    In terms of regions, Asia-Pacific is expected to remain the largest market for automotive airbag yarn during the forecast period. This region has a presence of a large number of major OEMs, such as Toyota and Hyundai, which make the region a growth engine for the automotive industry. Most of the major airbag yarn producers are forming strategic alliances with Asian companies to set up a plant in Asia, mainly in China, to tap the market potential.

    North America and Europe are also likely to create sizeable opportunities in the coming five years, driven by vehicle production growth coupled with the fitment rates of side, curtain, and knee airbags.
