The majorly used technologies in the occupant classification system market include a strain gauge system, bladder system, and pressure sensitive tape system. The pressure sensitive tape system is implemented mostly in luxury cars. The electronic-field sensing, 3D camera, and ultrasonic sensors are some of the recent advanced technologies being developed by manufacturers. Robert Bosch, TE Connectivity, Joyson Safety Systems, and IEE Sensing are the prominent players in the occupant classification system market. Several models of Honda, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Buick, and Ford have been embedded with occupant classification systems. Nissan has its own brand, Calsonic Kansei, which develops the occupant classification system mostly used on Nissan vehicles.
The occupant classification system market can be hampered by some factors. There have been cases of fake airbags implemented in cars, which were found during car crash investigations. Though the percentage is low, the quality standards of airbags, especially in the aftermarket, can affect the occupant classification system market growth. In 2017, a 58-year-old Australian was killed due to the failure of the airbag system as reported by the Metropolitan Crash Investigation Unit. Additionally, the rising prices of cars due to the implementation of airbags and occupant classification systems, especially in economy class vehicles, can restrain the industry growth.

The increasing awareness among car manufacturers and regulators about the need of vehicle safety systems has been fueling occupant classification system market. Increasing prevalence of road accidents and growing number of fatalities associated with them is one of the major factors accelerating industry trends. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), road accidents are the major cause of deaths across the globe accounting nearly 1.25 million mortalities per year.
Though vehicle manufacturers have integrated air bags in vehicles for safety purpose, they do not provide total security. As per the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, since 1990, around 300 people have lost their lives due to airbag impact, majorly due to the over sensitive airbag system. Most of the casualties were among children or people of short height who were found to be occupying the front seats. Occupant classification system (OCS) identifies people occupying the passenger seat and regulates airbags on/off switch.
Airbags have become a crucial feature for vehicle safety systems, reducing road accidents significantly. However, airbag impacts have injured several occupants, especially children & infants, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The occupant classification system market growth can be attributed to the need for restraining systems for airbag forces. These systems can detect an occupant’s size, position, and weight to deploy and suppress the pressure, enabling passenger safety. Moreover, recent technologies in the occupant classification system market can detect additional information such as body posture and if the occupant is wearing a seatbelt or not.
Conventional airbags deployed aggressive pressure on occupants; hence, automakers are actively implementing smart airbags that can operate with variable pressures. These systems work with an ECU and may also have a seat belt pre-tensioner, seat belt switch, sensors for seat position, and weight sensors. The growing implementation of airbags in the developing nations will influence the occupant classification system market. Several governments have made airbags mandatory in light vehicles. Brazil, which is one of the largest automotive manufacturing countries, enforced a rule to implement frontal airbags in all new cars sold in the country from January 2014. Moreover, the production of automotive in Brazil increased by 5.2% in 2018, flourishing the occupant classification system market.
The U.S. and Europe have emerged as leading regional revenue pockets transforming occupant classification system market outlook. The strict regulatory scenario across these regions mandating the use of OCS is one of the prominent factors fueling regional growth. For the record, in the U.S., the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) had deployed vehicle safety standards to mandate safety requirements for occupant’s protection. As a result, most of the automobile manufacturers like Ford, Chevrolet, Dodge, and Honda have started to integrate these systems in most of their mid-range & flagship models.
