'Active safety: Largest application market for automotive safety systems'
Active safety systems play a key role in preventing incidents and accidents, whereas passive safety systems help to mitigate negative consequences in the event of a crash. Active safety systems consist of various subsystems, such as anti-lock braking, electronic stability control, and tire pressure-monitoring systems. All these systems are triggered at different times, based on circumstances, to prevent accidents.
'High demand for vehicles in Asia-Pacific to drive the market for automotive safety systems'
Asia-Pacific is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, as a result of the high demand for vehicles, especially from countries such as China and India. Several OEMs are investing in the region, prompted by factors such as the expanding middle class and the young demographic.
