Captain Seats Market Research Report Scope/Definition

For the purpose of this market research report, captain seats are defined as a seat configuration that provides empty room in the middle of cars with second-rows. This ensures the driver and passengers can access the third-row seats. This seat configuration is designed to fit a single person, similar to wooden chairs. The captain seat configuration facilitates passengers who want to sit in the third-row now no bother folding the second-row seats. The passenger can easily walk to the end of the car through the empty space in the middle of the car; hence offers easy and convenient movement, especially during long drives. Captain seats are suitable for all ages; hence children have enough space to move around freely. They also are suitable for installing a child’s seat for safety purposes. The spacious cabin due to the captain seat arrangement would also benefit the elderly since you can move them back to provide more leg rooms and increase comfort. The armrest installed on the captain also offers comfort to passengers by allowing the hand to lean comfortably compared to the normal seat configuration in typical vehicles.

Captain Seats Market was estimated at USD XX million in 2021 and is poised to register gains at over 4% CAGR between 2022 and 2032.

Automotive seats provide comfort to the driver and are one of the most important parts of a vehicle. Thanks to the integration of numerous interior sections and various types of fabric, these seats lend a stylish appearance to a car. Captain seats in an automobile are in high demand nowadays because they are comfortable and makes it easy to move inside the car without having space restrictions. Theyre usually made of fabric, synthetic leather, and genuine leather. One of the primary drivers of the captain seats market share growth is the growth of passenger, electric, and commercial cars worldwide. A rise in passenger vehicle sales due to middle-class families improved lifestyles, along with the increase in disposable income, as well as a boom in demand for feature-enhanced advanced seats, all contribute to the captain seat markets growth. The high cost of sophisticated and modular captain seats may stifle the growth of the captain seat market. The use of lightweight materials in car seats is offering new market opportunities, however.

The growth in vehicle production and sales is a major factor driving the market. The rise in traffic accidents has also fuelled the demand for innovative safety features such as twin airbags and smart seats to protect passengers during a collision. Governments in a number of countries are also requiring the installation of safer car seats to prevent tragic accidents and ensure the safety of children in cars. Due to this, as well as parents increasing concerns about their childrens safety, the market is expanding. Captain seats are also suitable for installing baby seats on and are considered safer during accident. Due to the spacious cabin, the captains seats are also beneficial for the elderly since they can be moved backward to increase leg room. Thus, the increasing demand of captain seats across the world is forcing manufacturers to develop intelligent and safer captain seating systems that are ergonomic and comfortable, as well as lightweight. In addition, many major players are incorporating smart sensors, air moving devices, high-power density heaters, and convective warmers into captain seats, which will create profitable opportunities for market participants.

COVID-19s had a slight impact on the captain seat market sales during lockdown.

As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, the captain seat market experienced a moderate decline. Though the lockdown phase disrupted the public transportation, people shifted towards travelling in private vehicles, the production of captain seats didn’t resume at full capacity due to supply chain issues, labor shortages, and safety precautions. Captain seats manufacturing countries such as China, Japan, Germany, and the United Kingdom were adversely affected by the epidemic. In 2020, the captain seat industry saw a sudden drop in demand. In order to increase vehicle sales, new safety features were implemented. As of the third quarter of 2021, production and sales resumed, with many countries resuming construction at the same time. The gradual but steady recovery of vehicle production would result in increased demand for automobile seats.

Increasing penetration of SUVs in the automotive industry gave wings to the captain seats market sales.

Post pandemic, the popularity of bigger cars has almost doubled the share of SUVs. The number of SUVs on the road increased by more than 35 million in 2021. One third of cars sold in Europe and almost half of all cars sold in the United States are SUVs. The sale of SUVs in India is currently lower than that of western countries. OEMs are launching compact SUVs in a mid-price range, which is drawing buyers. As a result, the Indian market is inclining toward compact SUVs because they are more economical than full-size SUVs.

A variety of seat configurations are available for SUVs. Typically, a full-size SUV has bucket/captain seats in the first and second rows, and a 60/40 split bench in the third row. In most compact SUVs, the first row has bucket seats and the second row has bench or bucket seats. Powered, heated, ventilated seats are possible in full-size SUVs, and leather could also be used for the seats. Due to the growing demand for SUVs around the world, powered and captain seats are also in high demand.

Manufacturers rethink for innovation in cars with captains seats.

In the automotive industry, driver assistance technologies are increasingly being developed with the goal of introducing fully automated driving systems. Unlike L4 & L5 autonomous vehicles, which require minimal or no driver intervention, passenger-centric interiors will replace the steering wheel. As car-sharing becomes increasingly popular, the durability of seats will become of utmost importance. A hike in consumer preference for on-demand mobility services, such as ride-sharing and car rentals, has also been noted. Hence, it becomes crucial for the manufacturers to provide smart, comfortable, and spacious seating cabin in autonomous cars as well. Over 70% of fully autonomous cars will be used for ride-sharing, which will boost the captain seats market revenue significantly.

People will be commuting in the same car at the same time, requiring privacy. In this case, independent listening zones with speakers attached to each headrest, or multizone climate control will be used. Captain seats will need to be more comfortable, safe, and equipped with the latest technologies. In response to OEM and consumer preferences, captain seat manufacturers will need to innovate or acquire new and compelling products that take advantage of new technologies. Adient recently introduced its A118 Concept, which focuses on urban, electric, and autonomous cars. It presents solutions for four key scenarios for autonomous vehicles, namely, Lounge, Communication, Cargo, and Baby Plus. Earlier this year, Lear Corporation acquired Israel-based EXO Technologies, a provider of high-accuracy positioning solutions for autonomous and connected vehicles. Hyundai Transys has been developing autonomous captain seats since 2016. Easy Access, Autonomous, Communication, Relax, and Cargo modes are available.
