Smart helmet technology providers are investing heavily in research and development activities to expand their respective product portfolios and develop innovative products. The new product launch is specifically aimed at increasing the efficiency of smart helmets and providing a better customer experience. Traffic accidents are a major public safety problem and a leading cause of disability and death worldwide. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), approximately 1.2 million people die each year in road accidents. The most common causes of motorcycle accidents were speeding, alcohol and drug impairment, distracted driving, and improper lane use. Due to the increase in road accidents, governments across the globe are mandating the use of helmets, creating significant growth opportunities for the smart helmet industry.

The COVID-19 pandemic presents many challenges for helmet manufacturers, particularly those who rely on staff whose jobs cannot be carried out remotely. Approximately 80% of manufacturers anticipate the pandemic to have direct economic consequences on their companies, according to a new report published by the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) in March 2020. The productivity disruption triggered by COVID-19 has severe operational, social, and financial implications. This obliges market companies to reconsider crisis control and backup measures, workplace protection procedures, and innovative operating methods simultaneously.

Smart Helmet Market Growth Factors

Stringent Government Rules and Safety Regulations to Drive Market Growth

Motorcycles or bicycles are lesser safe than cars in case of an accident. The helmet's goal is to minimize the likelihood of severe head and brain trauma by force or head injury. Policy improvements to reduce road traffic accidents during the last few years differ significantly across various areas and countries. Wearing a motorcycle helmet will minimize the risk of death by almost 40% and the risk of serious injury by more than 70%. The effectiveness of motorcycle helmets in reducing head trauma is partially attributed to the quality of the helmets. Requiring helmets to conform to an accepted protection requirement is necessary to ensure that helmets can minimize the risk of a head injury in case of an accident. In turn, expanded policy legislation to encourage the use of helmets for safeguards has also provided a range of incentives for helmet suppliers to produce advanced helmets.

According to a study published by the Global Road Safety Report 2018, traffic deaths increased to 1.35 million in 2016. Head injuries caused by road traffic accidents are also the leading cause of death for children and young adults aged 5–29. This has further elevated the need to change the national helmet policy. According to the census of 2017, 33% of road deaths in India include people driving motorcycles without a helmet. In compliance with Section 129 of the Motor Vehicle Act 1989, headgear safety is mandatory. In violation of section 129 of the Motor Vehicle Amendment Act, the penalty for failure to wear a casket is payable with a three-month suspension of the driver's license under Section 194D of the Modification Act 2019.


High Cost Associated with these Helmets to Hinder Market Growth

Relatively high production costs associated with designing advanced helmets are the key factors impeding this market's growth. These devices incorporate night vision goggles, head-up screens, communication, and video camera unit that are very expensive relative to other helmets. Moreover, hardware and software compatibility issues are significant factors restraining key manufacturers and software developers from launching efficient solutions.

Smart Helmet Market Segmentation Analysis

By Type Analysis

Full-Face Helmet to Register Strong Growth due to its Safety Features

The market is segmented based on type into full-face, open-face, and half-head.

The full-face helmet segment accounted for the largest smart helmet market share and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. Wearing a full-face helmet lets users keep their heads safe from road hazards or accidents. With its articulating face mask, the full-face helmet helps prevent the wind and dirt from touching your eyes and potentially obstructing the view. The open-face helmet is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The growth of the open-face helmet segment is mainly attributed to its increased usage among riders and bicyclists due to better visibility and flexibility.

By Technology Analysis

The Integrated Communication System Segment Dominated the Market in 2022 due to its Voice Control Feature.

The market is segmented based on technology into integrated communication systems, integrated video cameras, contactless temperature measurement, Bluetooth connectivity, signal indicator and brake type, and others.

Smart helmets incorporate an Integrated Communication System (ICS) that allows nearly all types and applications to be controlled via voice order. This ensures that anytime someone connects a phone to a helmet device, they can perform several hands-free types simply by talking to the operator through the helmet microphone, such as finding directions, making calls, and others.

The contactless temperature measurement segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Smart head-covering devices integrated with thermal imaging solutions offer many advantages and enable governments and healthcare authorities to check elevated body temperatures and better mitigate the spread of coronavirus. For instance, in May 2020, the Hamad International Airport (HIA), Qatar, implemented helmets with built-in thermal screening capabilities and robotics to improve passenger and employee health readiness for post-COVID-19 travel.

By End-user Analysis

Healthcare Industry to Witness Widespread Adoption of Smart Helmets Amid COVID-19 Pandemic

The market is divided into consumer, industrial, healthcare, and construction based on end-user.

The consumer segment accounted for a significant share in 2022 and is expected to dominate during the forecast period. This segment's growth is mainly due to the increased road fatalities, growing safety concerns, and rise in sales of two-wheelers.

The adoption of advanced helmets in the healthcare industry will be high during the forecast period. Governments and public authorities are adopting advanced technologies and applying best practices to strengthen the fight against COVID-19. Chinese, the UAE and Italian authorities have also adopted fast-screening fever detector helmets. Representing the next wave of thermal imaging cameras and helping to shorten waiting times and potentially screen body temperatures, the industry's leading players are creating smart types of helmets as an innovative way to check people for COVID-19. For instance, DP World, an innovative security solutions provider in Dubai, launched KC N901, an advanced helmet for the contactless detection of people infected with COVID-19.
