Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) is projected as the most lucrative segments

Need for effective automatic tailgate in the vehicle

The traditional or manual liftgate does not include a precise way of latch locking and does not show any indication of proper latching on dashboard panel; therefore, the automatic operated tailgate is introduced in the market. Liftgates are used with the help of power hydraulic mechanism to reduce human efforts to lift the heavy objectives in the trucks within less time. 

High configuration cost and degradation of sensing mechanism

As many components and sensors are assembled in a single dielectric plate in accordance with the compatibility, it incurs higher costs, which further increases the overall manufacturing cost of the application. Few sensors and Nano products are inbuilt in a single plate of dielectric, which increases the complexity in terms of product manufacturing and overall packaging, and ultimately increases the cost of production. Irregular maintenance and poor handling can cause the degradation of the system. Thus, it restricts the adoption of hands-free power liftgate in the market.

Rise in technological advancements and innovation in the field of automotive industry

Innovation of the advanced driving technology is used to detect some objects & hazardous road condition and automatically slow down the speed of the vehicle. Also, the concept of handling vehicle through Internet of things (IOT) and other emerging technologies in the automotive sector, drives the demand for automated or hands-free power liftgate systems in the market. Companies, such as Forbes and Mercedes, use iris recognition and face detection technology to open the liftgate. This fuels the demand for hands-free power liftgates in the market
