What are impelling drivers of demand in this industry?

Propelling demand for automobiles globally to favor this industry in the forecast period.

The market is predicted to grow significantly internationally along with the ongoing expansion of the automotive industry. The market will be driven by new developments in the automotive sector, such as a hand-free system for opening and closing back doors. Also, some insurance providers provide discounts on insurance premiums for automobiles with cutting-edge technology. This element is expected to fuel the market for vehicle power liftgates.

Manufacturers face several challenges, owing to the presence of numerous competitors in the automotive sector. This competition further intensifies with new ideas that lead to innovative product launches.

In the coming years, Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) are aiming to provide advanced technology systems in vehicles, which is a prominent driver for the market. Moreover, OEMs are also focusing on forging long-term alliances with automobile manufacturers in order to enhance the quality of the material used and to design unique systems.

Features like hand-free lifting increase usability.

The ability to open power liftgates without using your hands is one characteristic that increases their usefulness. A hands-free power liftgate that could be opened or closed by waving your foot under the back bumper was one of the first innovations made by Ford. Models from Hyundai, Kia, and Genesis with hands-free power liftgates open after sensing the key fob close to the trunk after three seconds. The back insignia of Lexus vehicles have a sensor that needs to be activated by the owner putting their hand in front of it.

With consideration to convenience, these liftgates are extremely useful if one needs to access vehicles’ cargo areas frequently. Additionally, the ability to open the hatch without putting down what one is carrying in hand is a benefit of it.

For taxi/ride-hailing drivers, the ability to remotely open and close the trunk or hatch is a useful feature, particularly when customers forget to do so. But, power liftgates aren't always worthwhile.
