    In terms of degrees of movement 6-way driver seats were mostly found in the top sellers. SUVs accounted for the majority of the 6-way adjustable seats.


    In February 2020, Toyota Boshoku had developed a convenient and comfortable function “Driver’s Easy Return Seat function” for new model of Toyota Yaris in Japan for the first time in a Toyota vehicle


    In Japan, the massage seats feature was strictly limited to luxury cars.





    The automotive market was projected to grow at a higher rate in the year 2020-2023, however due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the growth was hindered.


    The manufacturing and production units across the globe were closed which resulted in the sales and production of vehicles and automotive components taking a hit. The growth of the automotive seat market is directly proportional to the growth in the automotive sector. 


    The major hit for the automotive industry is due to the shortage of semiconductor components and chips. The shortage was created mainly due to the lockdown in China and Taiwan.


    The industry is now trying to recover the market but due to the excessive backlog, the shortage is affecting the automotive industry the most.


    Many OEMs including BMW, Audi and Tesla have announced the delay in the launch of new models and delivery of existing orders due to component shortage. Some companies have started to use analog meters and devices from the old models to be incorporated in their vehicles.


    Production units have started to operate with less capacity as lockdowns and regulations are now decreased with pandemic protocols which do not permit the units to work with 100% workforce.


    For instance, China, which accounts for the highest passenger vehicle production, has resumed its operations with almost all the automotive component manufacturing companies starting production. 




    The seating system in an automobile constitutes the majority of the weight. Thus to increase the fuel efficiency steps are taken toward making lighter seating systems. The production of lighter seating systems is expected to boost the seating market worldwide.
