The motorcycle anti-lock brake system (ABS) inhibits the wheels of a motorcycle from locking while applying brakes. The engine control unit (ECU) of the ABS uses the information from speed sensors and modulate the brake fluid to maintain a linear traction and deceleration of motorcycles which subsequently avoids the collapse of the vehicle due to sudden braking. The stringent government regulations have compelled the installation of ABS technology in smaller motorcycles. The manufacturers are focusing on developing smaller and lightweight ABS equipment in vehicles. Bosch, Continental, and Honda will be some of the prominent players in this market space.

Overview of the global trike market

Market research analysts at Technavio have predicted that the global trike market will grow steadily at a CAGR of around 13% by 2020. Owing to their high comfort level, safety features, and riding pleasure, riders mostly prefer traditional heavyweight motorcycles. Factors such as its low center of gravity and increased stability have eliminated the need for balancing and have subsequently resulted in a rise in the number of trike motorcycle riders. The market research and analysis identifies factors like the ability of trikes to increase stability and augment rider convenience to result in its increased adoption during the forecast period.

Currently at its nascent stage, the trike market is witnessing fast development in terms of design, features, and performance. Though trikes offer more stability and rider comfort, high-performance trikes posed a threat to the rider on curved lanes. The reverse trike concept keeps the weight of the rider inside the trike and offers greater stability and safety during turning and braking. This concept allows for effective braking through proper weight distribution and offers the rider more stability. In addition to reverse trikes, tilting trikes is another concept that allows the rider to lean on turns. The development of the reverse trike concept and the invention of tilting conversion kits are envisaged to have a positive impact on the growth of the market during the forecast period.

Segmentation by end users and analysis of the trike market

  • OEMs (original equipment manufacturer)
  • Aftermarket
  • Custom-built

According to this market study report, the OEM segment will dominate the market during the forecast period and will account for about 78

Overview of the global automotive voice and speech recognition system market

According to the market analysts at Technavio, the global automotive voice and speech recognition system market will grow at a steady CAGR of more than 11% by 2020. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) guidelines on driver distraction will encourage the adoption of VR systems. The NHTSA guidelines on driver distraction show the necessity of having VR systems in light vehicles. Without this system, the driver will not be able to make a call while driving on the road. According to the NHTSA, VR systems are engineered to pair mobile devices with the vehicle’s displays and controls. As a result, drivers will be able to drive and use their phones simultaneously. This, in turn, will naturally bring down the instances of driver distraction and reduce the number of traffic violation tickets for the drivers.

The evolution of VR systems to integrated assistant systems is a key factor that is anticipated to aid in this market’s growth over the coming years. Recently, it has been observed that many automakers have started supplying fully integrated suites like Ford's SYNC and Fiat's Blue&Me, which controls the connected system of the car through a set of commands. The suites of electronic control systems were developed at a much earlier stage compared to the VR system. As a result, these systems were swiftly incorporated by their respective automakers into their existing platforms as soon as the VR technology was available.

Outlook of the global automotive replacement tire market

The global market for automotive 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.

Overview of the automotive haptic accelerator pedal market

Market research analysts at Technavio have predicted that the global automotive haptic accelerator pedal market will grow impressively and post a CAGR of more than 23% by 2020. Over speeding has been identified as the main cause of road fatalities and the use of haptic accelerators would assist drivers in curbing unnecessary speed. The Agenda for Sustainable Development published by the United Nations established a target to reduce the global number of deaths and injuries from road traffic crashes by half by the year 2020. When integrated with efficient ADAS systems such as anti-collision systems, automotive haptic accelerators have the ability to assess road scenarios and in turn, curb unnecessary vehicle speeds.

The rise in infotainment system complexities has induced OEMs to simplify the same and figure out ways to reduce driver distractions. Manufacturers have started upgrading the infotainment console; the mechanical controls are being replaced with capacitive touch buttons, voice recognition, and other forms of electronically-enabled controls. Infotainment system upgrades are aimed at keeping the driver’s attention off the infotainment console and reduce the glance time. The adoption of haptic technologies in infotainment electronic devices can return appropriate feedback to the driver through vibrations. Tier-I suppliers such as Bosch and Continental have already introduced their innovative infotainment products and user interfaces that use haptic feedback mechanisms and touch controls.
