Airbag Propellant Chemicals Market: Global Industry Analysis and Opportunity Assessment 2016-2026

Airbag Propellant Chemicals Market: Global Industry Analysis and Opportunity Assessment 2016-2026

Market Overview

Airbag propellant chemicals are used to bring about rapid inflation of an airbag as soon as sensor of automobile senses the crash force above a predetermined value in case of a collision. Chemical used for the airbags should react or decompose spontaneously so as to produce enough amount of required gas for the instantaneous inflation and deflation of the airbags. In case of a collision, airbag’s electrical circuit passes current towards the heating element which in turn causes the chemical explosion through which certain amount of gas is generated so as to inflate the airbags. Some of the chemicals that are commonly used to effect this controlled explosive reaction include sodium azides, ammonium nitrate, and Potassium 5-amino tetrazole among others. Along with propellant chemicals certain additives are used in order to neutralize effect of the chemical before exposure to the occupants. The demand for the airbag that adhere to stringent government regulations has resulted in efforts towards development and adoption of new propellant chemicals over the recent past.  

Airbag Propellant Chemicals Market Dynamics:

In general, demand for airbag propellant chemicals is expected to be driven primarily by increasing automotive production. Moreover, increasing adoption of airbags in automobiles especially in developing economies of the globe including China and India among others is expected to further drive the growth of global airbag propellant chemicals market over the forecast period. Furthermore, growing demand for airbags from marine applications ranging from those in smaller boats to larger ships is also expected to steadily drive growth of global airbag propellant chemicals market during forecast period. On the other hand, stringent government regulations coupled with fatalities and instances such as faulty deployment of airbag and airbag rupture among others have prompted the industry to develop safer and reliable alternatives to conventionally used chemicals. Thus, trend of adopting alternative propellant chemicals is expected to be witnessed in global airbag propellant chemicals market during forecast period.
