Automotive seat suspension system is the suspension provided below the driver’s seat to prevent extra fatigue and back injury caused due to the vibrations produced in the cabin. It is used in commercial vehicles. Automotive seat suspension system has proven to be a significant change in the transport sector for drivers of commercial and agricultural vehicles.
The increasing concern towards health and safety in automotive sector comfort factor for the driver can be expected as a responsible factor for the rise in demand. Mandatory norms for driver’s cabin include norms for seat suspension system. This is expected to boost the demand for automotive seat suspension system. Automotive seat suspension system reduces the risk of back injuries and severe jerks. Thus, it improves the ergonomics of the driver cabin. This ultimately results in lower road accidents.
Based on operation of suspension system, the automotive seat suspension system market can be segmented into hydraulic seat suspension, pneumatic seat suspension, and spring seat suspension system.

In hydraulic suspension system fluid is used for damping the road shocks inside the cylinder. Hydraulic suspension system requires maintenance after certain duration. Pneumatic suspension system is powered by engine driven or electric driven air pump to absorb the road socks; however, the installation cost of the pneumatic suspension system is higher compared to that for other systems. In spring seat suspension system, springs act as shock absorbers. It is the most cost effective suspension system.
Based on number of suspensions used, the automotive seat suspension system market can be classified into mono-tube shock absorber, multi-tube shock absorber, integrated seat suspension system, and separate seat suspension system. Under the mono-tube shock absorber system, single shock absorber is provided to absorb the shocks to the seat. Under the multi-tube shock absorber system, multiple shock absorbers are provided for shock absorption.
Based on vehicle type, the automotive seat suspension system market can be split into passenger vehicles, commercial vehicles, and off-road vehicles.
Passenger vehicles include hatchbacks, sedans, and multi-utility vehicles. Commercial vehicle include light commercial vehicles, heavy commercial vehicles, and agricultural vehicles. Small carriers are included in small commercial vehicles, while heavy duty trucks are included in heavy commercial vehicles. Agricultural vehicles include tractors and thrashers.
Based on geography, the automotive seat suspension market can be segmented into Asia Pacific, North America, Latin America, Europe, and Rest of the World. North America and Europe account for significant share of the automotive seat suspension system market due to the implementation of stringent norms on drivers’ cabin in these regions. Norms on drivers’ cabin are also expected to be implemented in India by 2019. This is anticipated to propel the automotive seat suspension system market in Asia Pacific.
Key players operating in the automotive seat suspension manufacturing system market are Sears Seating, Commercial Vehicle Group Inc., General Kinetics, Lear Corporation, Arimis Seating Systems and Xcraft Suspension Seats.
