In Automotive Industry, the seat plays a vital role as it comes in direct contact with the occupants when the vehicle is used. It is directly responsible for the occupant's safety. The standard car seat is designed to support buttocks, thighs, lower and upper back, and head. The primary purpose of an automotive seat is to provide comfort to the person driving the vehicle. The components of the seat are usually constructed from foam to provide comfort to the rider. An automobile seat consists of three components seat back (squab), seat base (cushion) and headrest. While choosing foam for manufacturing the automotive seat, four things need to be considered balancing comfort, support, safety, and recycling properties. The cushioning agent is essential while considering that moving cars can transmit vibrations near the human spine's resonant frequency of 3 Hz. The base can generally be pushed ahead and back on metal railings and may go all over to acclimate to various body types. This is done either by manual hooks or by electric switches. Since innovation has been phenomenal in automotive over the last few years, cars have become safer, speedier and comfortable. One vital area of the vehicle where the development has not been progressive, but now it is getting all the attention it deserved. During the initial period of the advancement of the vehicles, the main emphasis was on the motor, powertrain, and suspension. Still, now the emphasis has been shifted towards providing an excellent seating solution to automobile users. In collaboration with tier-1 suppliers of automotive components, the automotive OEMs have been gradually investing in car seating control systems to provide a value-added driving experience to their clients. A few of the critical innovations in the automobile seating solution are customizable multi-way adjustable seats, stress & fatigue detecting seats, smartphone-connected seats, memory seats and customized massage seats. All these innovations are meant for providing a better seating experience to the users. Automotive ECUs have a significant role to play in the seating control solution. They are responsible for taking the user's input and transferring the signal first to the car battery and then to the target component. A specialized ECU called body control module is responsible for activating any mechanical action that needs to be performed to control any component of the seating system.

The emerging markets drive the global automotive seat market growth, and huge investment in research and development are the factors responsible for the growth of this market. Moreover, the increased vehicle production is expected to drive the market.
The increasing rate of vehicle production is likely to favor the market growth during the forecast period
The automotive industry comprises a wide range of companies and organizations involved in the design, development, manufacturing, marketing, and selling of motor vehicles. It is one of the world's largest industries by revenue. The increasing pollution is a crucial factor for the growth of the automotive industry. The worldwide number of vehicles on the road will almost double by 2040, as indicated by a report from research house Bernstein. Vehicles are projected to cross the two billion mark by 2040. Bernstein said it anticipates that most of this transport growth should occur in developing countries like China and India. The worldwide population is expected to rise by two billion over the following 25 years, summing nearly up to 9.2 billion. Growing GDP in these regions will increase their demand. While this growth looks large, the report notes that demand in the US and Europe will fall as both regions had reached their peak oil ten years ago in 2005. It is expected that 110 million vehicles will be produced by 2025, with Asia among the hottest market in passenger vehicle production. In China, the Qinghai region must turn into a significant maker of traveler vehicles, offsetting trailing growth in more mature markets like Beijing and Shanghai. Considering the increasing population levels and increasing affluence in emerging markets, worldwide vehicle production is projected to surpass the 100 million units mark soon. According to a report by Statista, China was the top light vehicle producing country in 2020. Domestic manufacturers like SAIC, Changan, Dongfeng, Geely, and BAIC - which are in a joint adventure with Daimler - are acquiring market share; joint endeavors with foreign partners are the way to China's prosperity as a leading vehicle producer, both in the traveler vehicle and the truck section. Japan, Germany, India, and South Korea are also among the world's biggest vehicle manufacturers. A large portion of these nations is home to the significant producers of traveler vehicles. The leading vehicle manufacturers overall incorporate Germany's Volkswagen Group and the Japanese automaker Toyota Motor Corporation.
The use of polyester in making automotive seats is likely to hinder the market during the forecast period
Polyester is the most widely used synthetic material in the manufacturing of seats. It is used mainly because of its low price permitting the brands to maximize their profits. The main issue with polyester is that polyester isn't sustainable or renewable, and it is among the most harmful fabrics for the environment. Polyester is produced using the non-renewable resource petroleum, and its creation depends on the petrochemical industry for its raw materials. This implies petroleum derivatives are required (the leading supporter of expanding CO2 discharges), with 70 million barrels of oil utilized yearly to make polyester. The process also releases toxins into the environment, impacting many living organisms. Polyester isn't usually biodegradable and can require as long as 200 years to decompose. As it deteriorates, methane is released, an ozone-depleting substance considerably more dangerous than carbon dioxide. It's highly flammable and contributes to climate change. At the point when polyester is washed, tiny synthetic microfibers are released into the water supply. These pieces of plastic build up in our rivers and oceans and pose a threat to the environment. An examination by Plymouth University found that one wash could deliver 4,000 microfibers per gram of fabric. These add up to 31% of plastic contamination in the sea and cause significant damage to marine life.
