It aims in offering convenience, comfort, and security to the passengers as well as to the drivers. Earlier, it was estimated that automotive intelligent door system market growth would reach the market by 2 million units by the year 2020, however, COVID-19 has impacted its growth.


COVID-19 Analysis


The pandemic has a huge impact on the growth and demand due to which automotive intelligent door system market growth is struggling. Since many companies are under lockdowns, the production and manufacturing sectors are either closed or working at reduced capacities. Due to series of lockdowns, demand for vehicles has also reduced as most individuals are working from home.


Besides, many countries have been facing the stage of recessions due to which purchasing power of individuals has impacted the automotive intelligent door system market trends. Also, most of the automotive products are produced in Asian regions which have been majorly impacted by the pandemic. Thus, the production and manufacturing of intelligent doors have almost come to a standstill.


 It is expected that consumer purchasing capacities for vehicles consumption will remain down due to dwindling businesses and employment opportunities in many sectors. This will further impact the automotive Intelligent door system market growth.

  • SMARTRAC N.V. (Amsterdam)

  • HufHulsbeck&Furst GmbH &Co. Kg (Germany)


Market Dynamics


Drivers- It is also estimated that power sliding doors will be the fastest-growing segment with a CAGR of 15.5%. Since the pandemic is ongoing the soft door close systems will be low and will reach the CAGR of 14.8%. Automotive industry has been growing for years which is the highest driving factor for increasing automotive intelligent door system market value.


As the car owners and manufacturers have become increasingly aware of the convenience features and safety issues.  In addition to this, innovation has increased in the door panel components. Also, there has been an increase in demand for automated vehicles which will further boost automotive intelligent door system market growth.


Opportunities- Technological innovations are increasing which has prompted cost-effectiveness, efficiency, and convenience. Due to this, there has been increasing demand for keyless systems in passenger and personal cars. Besides, individuals are adopting online vehicle booking systems which have increased demands for passenger vehicles.


The sales for passenger vehicles have increased by 11 % in the upcoming years.  In addition to this, many travellers are preferring the services of rented vehicles which has also created opportunities for the automotive intelligent door system market.


In addition to this, there has been the high conversion of mechanical components into electrical parts which will fuel the growth of the automotive intelligent door system market. Also, designers are working on making electrical doors more attractive which will also impact automotive intelligent door system market value.


Restraints- Technology used in automotive products has been increasing which has also raised security concerns of automation. Lack of appropriate security systems increases the risk of accidents as they can be easily breached by cybercriminals. Also, automatised cars are in developmental stages thus, available for only premium classes.


Hence, the growth rate of the automotive intelligent door system market is restricted. Besides, Asian regions are the most populated regions of the world, however, consumption in these regions is comparatively less that also acts as restraints for increasing automotive intelligent door system market value.


Challenges- Automotive intelligent door system industry is expected to grow due to the high demand for electrical and automated vehicles. As carbon emission has increased, government and private investors are focusing on the development of electrical and automated cars. However, there are inadequate electric charging facilities in many nations that can impact the growth of the automotive intelligent door system market.


Also, in many developing regions there are inadequate sources and implementation of alternative energy sources which will pose a challenge for the manufacturers for increasing the automotive intelligent door system market value.


There has been growth in the automotive industry on the technological front as consumers are becoming more tech-savvy. This has increased the unsold inventories on year- on year basis which has increased the cost of the manufacturers as well as the distributor. Due to the pandemic, this issue will increase as there has been a significant drop in need and purchasing power of the customers. Hence, the automobile companies will face challenges in procuring sales of vehicles with semi or fully equipped with an automotive intelligent door system.


Cumulative growth analysis- It can be assumed that increasing the production of vehicles is directly proportional to the high demand for automobile components. It can be estimated that high demands for vehicle production will lead to the growth of the automotive intelligent door system market.


The cumulative growth in the total number of vehicles if use will act as an impetus to boost the demand for automotive intelligent door systems on the global fronts.  Besides, research and development in the intelligent components of passenger vehicle segments might act as a high source of income for players in the automotive intelligent door system industry.


Value Chain analysis


Automation is being adopted in both passenger and commercial segments, which is expected to fuel automotive intelligent door system market value. The intelligent door systems are lightweight, compact, and highly durable easily installable materials during manufacturing or aftermarket.


Since there is an expectation of high demand for the production and sale of electric and hybrid vehicles. There will be high demand for automotive intelligent door systems in the global market.  In addition to this, it is estimated that the growth of the automotive intelligent door system market in segments of commercial vehicles will be high in the upcoming years.


Segment Overview


The automotive intelligent door system market can be segmented into three categories that are by technology, position, and vehicle types.



  • By technology- It will include power-sliding, retractable, and soft-close door systems.

  • By position- This segment includes OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturers) and aftermarket.

  • By vehicle market- It consists of conventional vehicles like passenger cars, LCV and HCV. It will also include battery and hybrid electric vehicles.


Regional Analysis


 The global market for automotive intelligent door systems can be divided into majorly four regions like North America, Europe, Asia- Pacific, and the rest of the geographical areas of the world.  It is estimated that Asia- Pacific will be a high growth area for the automotive intelligent door system market. Thus, China and some regions of Southeast Asia are expected to dominate the automotive intelligent door system market due to the highest existence of production, manufacturing, and distribution of vehicles and their components in this part of the world.


Also, in the Asia- Pacific regions, the growth rate of gasoline-powered vehicles and fleets are increasing for few years. Besides, this region has also become attractive for investments in alternative sources of energy which will fuel automotive intelligent door system market value.
