This industry research report identifies Bosch, Continental, and CTS as the key vendors in the global automotive haptic accelerator pedal market. This industry research report also presents a competitive analysis of the market based on the geographical regions such as China, Europe, North America, and ROW.

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.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The market is characterized by the presence of well-established players and regional vendors. There have been continuous R&D investments from several OEMs and Tier-I players such as Daimler, Bosch, and Continental to improve the driving interface, which will improve fuel efficiency, safety, and comfort. Though continuous developments in technology and gradual installations have a positive impact on the automotive driving interface systems, vendors often face cost pressures which post a challenge for market penetration even in developed countries. This has led manufacturers to focus more on cost reduction strategies, which will help them expand their global reach.
