A motorcycle airbag system is a safety system built in motorcycles to protect the riders and save them in an accident. The airbag inflates in case of an accident before the rider hits the ground, providing impact protection to the vulnerable areas in a motor crash, that is, back, neck, and chest. These wireless and tethered airbags are available in the form of vests or jackets or integrated within a jacket or a race suit.

Regionally the motorcycle airbag system market is expected to grow significantly in the Asia Pacific region in the forecast period owing to the rapid sales of motorcycles, initiatives by the government over vehicular safety, and increasing consumer disposable incomes in the region.
As far as the type of coating is concerned, the silicone-coated airbag systems are expected to be more relevant than the neoprene-coated and uncoated airbags. This can be attributed to the fact that silicone coating allows rapid deployment of airbags and decreases air permissibility. It also shows high resistance against heat and pressure, protecting the airbag itself from various damages. The above factors are responsible for the growth of silicone-coated airbag systems.

The Japanese company specialises in the manufacture of air jackets for motorcycle riders and horse riders and is one of the leading players in the industry. The company is involved in the manufacture of several types of airbags, such as all-in-one airbags, race model airbags, and neck airbags. The all-in-one airbag is just another wearable over an ordinary jacket or raincoat, helping minimise the contact area with the impact. As the name suggests, the race model airbag is used in races to protect all the vulnerable areas during a race, and the neck airbags are used as a shock-buffering system to protect the neck region.
