Global outlook of the automotive pedestrian protection system market

Technavio’s market research analysts have predicted that the global automotive pedestrian protection system market will grow impressively during the predicted period and in terms of revenue, will post a CAGR of more than 33% by 2020. Bosch’s electronic pedestrian protection systems (PPS) offers a safe and cost-effective solution for active impact protection for pedestrians and also fulfils the legal requirements for automotive pedestrian protection on vehicles. The system consists of sensors in the front part of the vehicle and an electronic control unit (ECU) which will trigger actuators that can lift the engine hood within a fraction of a second. This provides a safe buffer for the pedestrian's head in the incidence of an accident. Moreover, it is easy to integrate the system with existing vehicle fronts and does not alter the vehicle’s external appearance. The company also provides further customization to the PPS by letting the buyers decide the location of the sensors. This will encourage more PPS vendors to provide cost-efficient and customized pedestrian safety systems, which in turn, will lead to an increased adoption of PPS in the coming years.

The existing pedestrian detection technologies are slow and require high computing power. However, the pedestrian detection module (PDM) developed by the engineers at the University of California, San Diego, performs in near real-time and with higher accuracy compared to existing systems. This technology incorporates deep learning models and also consists of an inbuilt facility for alarm if a highlighted pedestrian gets too close. This use of computer/synthetic vision systems in PPS will be one of the major trends that will gain traction in the market in the next four years.

Outlook of the global passenger vehicle replacement tire market

The global market for passenger vehicle replacement tires will experience steady growth and will post a CAGR of over 7% by 2020. The falling rubber prices will act as a boon for this market as it will help vendors to increase their profit margins. Over the past few years, the profiles of tire manufacturers have improved owing to increased global vehicle production, rising pool of aging vehicle population leading to high volume sales, and lower rubber prices elevating profit margins.  The recent drop in rubber prices coincides with a lower remote method invocation (RMI) 1-year aggregate probability of default (PD), which means cash position and financial default likelihoods for 44 globally listed tire manufacturers will be lowered drastically. This decrease in the cash position of vendors will indicate the healthy cash making ability of these companies.

In this market study, it has also been observed that the advent of newer tire brands has started influencing the buying preferences of consumers. Over the last few years, young riders have been more receptive than their older counterparts to tire brands that are less established in the market. In the US, large, well-established tire brands such as BFGoodrich, Goodyear, and Michelin have the highest popularity rates among all generations. However, it has been observed that the millennial population prefers smaller or newer brands in the US market, such as Cooper, Hankook, and Pirelli, when replacing the original equipment tires on their vehicles.
