LONDON—Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent global automotive power tailgate system market report until 2021. This research report also lists four other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

The global automotive power tailgate system market is predicted to grow at a CAGR of almost 12% through the forecast period, expected to grow to 91.05 million units by 2021. EMEA occupies the majority share of this market, and over 40% of the incremental growth is expected to originate from the region.

The main factors pushing for the healthy growth of this market is the increasing need for safety, performance, stability, and comfort. Additionally, various governmental agencies are pushing for a standard deployment of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), use of active safety systems, anti-intrusion and anti-theft systems, and automatic emergency braking systems. Additionally, with the increasing penetration of electric vehicles, this market is set to grow at a healthy rate through the forecast period.

Competitive vendor landscape

The global automotive power tailgate system market is witnessing the dominance of a few established players that are the manufacturers and the suppliers of power operated tailgate systems and components systems. The major competition in the market is likely to intensify due to vehicle downsizing, improving fuel efficiency, and autonomous vehicles. The highest adoption for this technology is seen in Europe, North America, and Japan owing to the greater emphasis on vehicle safety, comfort, and convenient systems while purchasing a vehicle.

HUF Group, Johnson Electric, Brose, and Mitsuba are the notable players that account for more than 40% of the global market in terms of revenue. Unlike any other industry, the automotive industry is governed by strict regulations and standards, which will increase adoption and enhance the profitability of advanced vehicle access systems,” says Siddharth Jaiswal, one of the lead analysts at Technavio for automotive electronics research.
