Automotive safety system falls into two categories: active safety system and passive safety system. The passive safety system industry is quite mature and witnesses minor changes. Airbag industry poses the exceeding high entry barriers and the top three giants dominate the market with a total share of over 95%.
Autoliv is a leading manufacturer in automotive safety system market and focuses on European and American markets. TRW boasts rich product line and derives around 14% of its revenue from automotive safety system. TRW devotes itself to the chassis market and thus sees a slight decline in the market share of automotive safety system. Takata makes up over 70% market share in Japan and achieves good results in Europe-America. In 2012, Mercedes-Benz becomes its third largest customer, and Volkswagen, the fourth largest one.
The market size of active safety system is still rather limited at present, with the key products consisting of Parking Radar, Infrared Night Vision and Automotive Vision. Parking Radar is the most common one, but it is characteristic of low price and small market size.
The professional automotive radar producers include TTE in Taiwan and comprehensive companies like Bosch and Valeo, etc. The top 3 manufacturers seize roughly 71% market share. TTE ranks No. 3 in the world and will climb up to No. 2 because it has secured the orders from GM for seven years.
Infrared Night Vision is widely applied in luxury cars, and Mercedes-Benz E-Class and BMW 5 Series are equipped with Infrared Night Vision. The second-generation Infrared Night Vision can only detect oncoming vehicles and road users, while the third-generation product will be capable of detecting the oncoming animals. The Infrared Night Vision producers are Autoliv, Bosch and Denso.
Automotive Vision System is still rarely seen and principally employed for automatic parking assist system and crossings alarm system. It will develop towards automatic braking and unmanned driving. Many businesses have been dedicated to the system research and development.
