The Global Automotive Seating Market is projected to reach USD 69.47 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 2.3% during the forecast period.

Comfortable seating is essential in any vehicle. The demand for massage seats has been increasing, especially in luxury passenger cars. Moreover, according to the World Bank statistics, the per capita income of countries in the Asia Pacific regions such as India and China are witnessing a considerable increase leading to the rise in the disposable income of these countries. This, in turn, is driving the demand for advanced technology seats such as heated, powered, and massage in automotive. The recent trend to reduce the overall weight of the vehicle to increase fuel efficiency has led to the adoption of lightweight materials such as alloys and composites for manufacturing the frame.


The seat covers are most commonly made from Nylon because it is durable and affordable. Leather is the most expensive material used for car seats, but as it offers elegance, aesthetics, and value, they are increasingly being used in high-end cars. Most manufacturers are trying to incorporate features like safety, intelligence, personalization, lightweight, green and comfortable into their seating.

Global Automotive Seating Market

The production of electric vehicles is increasing the demand for advanced automotive seatings like the massage and heated seats. Seatings in fully automatic vehicles ultimately will be considered as a rest or entertainment area while the vehicle drives itself. But fully automatic vehicles are not expected to penetrate the market until 2030. Till then the seating should make it easier for the driver to drive the car without causing discomfort.

The Bench type seats are expected to have the highest demand in the market due to their ability to accommodate more people than the regular split benches and also recently they have been readily used in LCVs also.

The Split type seats find a higher share in the luxury and high-speed car segments as bench seats are hardly used due to the compact size of these cars and also weight reductions for optimum fuel usage. 

Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:

  • Increasing demand and production of vehicles
  • Rising travel times and traffic congestion is leading to the need for more comfortable and safe seating.
  • Increasing penetration of electric vehicles into the market.
