The Automotive Seats Market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 2.51%, during the forecast period from 2018 to 2025, to reach a market size of USD 73.03 billion by 2025 from USD 61.41 billion in 2018. Increasing SUV/MPV demand, growing premium vehicle sales, growing advancements in seating technologies for autonomous and semiautonomous vehicles, and increasing lightweight materials to produce seat frames and structures are some of the key growth drivers of the automotive seats market.
The automotive seats market is dominated by a few global players and comprises several regional players. Some of the key manufacturers and suppliers in the automotive seats market are Adient (US), Lear Corporation (US), Faurecia (France), Toyota Boshoku (Japan), Magna International (Canada), TS Tech (Japan), Tachi-S (Japan), NHK Spring (Japan), and Gentherm (US). Expansion, joint ventures/collaborations, new product developments, and acquisitions are the prominent strategies adopted by these players to gain traction in the automotive seats market. In January 2018, Toyota Group parts suppliers stepped up their collaboration for next-generation technologies such as autonomous driving and electrification technologies. Aisin Group and Toyota Boshoku Corporation would jointly develop seats that can warn drivers using vibrations. Further, in September 2017, Adient GK, the Japanese subsidiary of Adient, strengthened its research & development structure. Adient is planning to install an experimental facility, at its Japan Technical Center, that creates a simulation of the vibrations produced when a vehicle is traveling with 6 degrees of freedom (up/down, right/left, etc.). Alternatively, in September 2017, Adient took over Futuris Group (US) with an acquisition amount of about USD 360 million. Futuris Group is a manufacturer of complete seating systems, frames, seat trims, headrests, armrests, and seat bolsters, and operates through 15 manufacturing units located in the North American and Asian countries.
