Automotive seat is an essential component of any automobile since it offers comfort to both the driver and the passengers. In addition, these seats provide a vehicle with a luxury appeal, due to their ability to incorporate numerous interior elements and different types of fabric materials. Furthermore, automobile seats are one of the most important components in vehicles since they are meant to support the thighs, lower and upper back, and head. They are generally built of steel, aluminum, or a combination of the two. Rise in sales of passenger, electric, and commercial vehicles throughout the world are one of the key reasons boosting the growth of the automotive seat market. The automotive pneumatic comfort seating system is a sophisticated seating system that offers the driver and co-passengers comfort and geometric flexibility during long travels. For vehicles, these seating systems include heated, heated & ventilated, heated & cooled, massage, lumbar support, and other features. These features contribute towards improving the automobile’s overall driving experience.

As a consequence of urbanization and rise in consumer spending in developing nations, demand for premium automobiles in emerging countries is projected to surge in the coming years. A significant increase has been witnessed in the sales of luxury vehicles in developing regions. The demand for luxury automobiles in emerging countries has been fuelled by a large increase in demand for advanced automotive systems in vehicles, a movement in customer preferences from sedans to SUVs, and rising disposable incomes. Manufacturers are rapidly establishing manufacturing plants in emerging nations in response to the rise in demand for luxury vehicles in the area. Thus, the manufacturing of premium cars has increased in developing countries. This is also attributable to favorable government policies, rise in GDP, and other factors. Increased production of high-performance automobiles has resulted in a considerable increase in demand for automotive pneumatic comfort seat systems. For instance, Volkswagen announced ID.4, an all-electric crossover/SUV with pneumatic lumbar supports and a built-in massage function, in September 2020. In addition, rise in demand for smart passenger automobiles in developing nations boost the automotive production in the region significantly. Customers in emerging nations such as India, Brazil, and others have demonstrated a significant increase in adoption of comfortable automobile seating systems, resulting in higher demand for automotive pneumatic comfort seat systems in the developing nations.

Aluminum and steel are the most common materials used in the production of metal framework of an automobile seat. Martinrea International Inc., Novelis, ArcelorMittal, Baosteel Group Hu, POSCO, Jiangsu Shagang, Tata Steel Group, HYUNDAI Steel Company, and JFE Steel Corporation are among the major aluminum and steel providers. One of the biggest obstacles is the higher total cost owing to the type of metal body utilized for seat frames. As a result, changes in the cost of aluminum and steel cause fluctuations in the prices of manufacturing seats, restricting the market’s growth. There is a significant increase in the cost of metal due to the trade war between the U.S. and China. Steel prices surged by about 20% when the U.S. imposed tariffs on metal imports in July 2018. Pneumatic comfort seats have a high maintenance and installation cost, limiting their use primarily to premium automobiles. Low costs associated with the mechanical comfort seating solutions further lowers the adoption of automotive pneumatic seating systems. Furthermore, the development of advanced automobile seats demands the use of high-precision manufacturing facilities, raising the cost of automotive pneumatic seats. Commercial vehicle pneumatic seat systems have high installation and maintenance costs, which limits the market growth in the predicted time.
