Power Liftgate Market Trends

  • Growing luxury vehicles is driving the market growth

Market CAGR for power liftgate is being driven by the rising luxury vehicles. Globally, demand for hands-free power liftgates is increasing. One of the major factors driving the market's growth is the growing benefits of hands-free power liftgates, such as their high level of convenience for both drivers and passengers. Drivers may open the cargo space of their automobile with only a press of a button or a wave of their foot, even if their hands are full. This is very helpful when transporting groceries, luggage, or other stuff. The hands-free power liftgate's high level of safety, which lowers the possibility of damage when lifting big goods, also contributes to the market's expansion. The demand for premium cars worldwide is anticipated to drive the market for power liftgates. 

Luxury cars frequently have power liftgates because they provide convenience and safety. They allow drivers to open and close the tailgate without getting out of the car, which is useful in confined parking situations or while towing large goods. To avoid accidents, power liftgates now contain sensors that can identify items in the path.One of the prospects for the power liftgate business is the development of cutting-edge technology and innovation in the automobile industry. With the advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) technology, you may identify particular objects and hazardous driving circumstances and have the vehicle's speed automatically reduced. In addition, the Internet of Things (IoT) and other cutting-edge technologies are driving the market expansion of the power liftgate.

Suppliers of car components are putting a lot of effort into developing new technologies for vehicle exteriors with a range of new features that may be customized to the drivers' and passengers' changing needs. These liftgate systems increase vehicle efficiency by decreasing the vehicle's weight and increasing fuel economy. Metalized paint, which produces a chrome-like look without the added weight associated with utilizing actual metal, enhances these qualities further. This innovative paint method decreases overall weight by 10 to 20% while costing around 5 to 20% less than chrome electroplating. 

Customers of luxury vehicles are more likely to be hauling hefty cargo or several passengers, which can make it challenging to manually lift and close a tailgate. Power liftgates facilitate the loading and unloading of freight, which is a significant benefit for owners of luxury vehicles. The demand for luxury automobiles is increasing as more individuals can afford them as the economy expands. The need for power liftgates increases along with the popularity of premium automobiles. SUVs and crossovers are becoming increasingly common, and many of these cars have bigger tailgates that can be challenging to open manually. Owners of SUVs and crossovers benefit from the ease of power liftgates, which make it simpler to open and close these bigger tailgates. Thus, driving the Power Liftgate market revenue.
