Development of innovative horns by leading industry players will enlarge the global automotive horn market size in the coming years, shares Fortune Business Insights™ in its recent report, titled “Automotive Horn Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Horn Type (Air Horn, Electric Horn), By Design Type (Flat, Spiral, Trumpet), By Vehicle Type (Passenger Cars, Commercial Vehicles) Others and Regional Forecast, 2019-2026”. Horns are a vital component in any vehicle as they perform crucial safety functions for other entities on the road. For instance, in the early days of automobiles, horns were used to make pedestrians and carriages aware of their presence.
Today, while the original purpose of horns has not changed, carmakers are innovating on the lines of loudness and robustness of horns, driving the automotive horn market trends as a result. For example, the HELLA Loud Car Horns are among the loudest automotive horns in the market currently, having a metal body and a protective grill and an assured high performance. In 2018, FIAMM COMPONENTI ACCESSORI designed the company’s flagship electromagnetic Long Life Horn (LLH) that can be used in both passenger and commercial vehicles. Similarly, the Wolo Bad Boy Air Horn took the market by storm when it was released owing to its latest air horn technology and sonority, all for just $30. Competitive pricing is, therefore, expected to emerge as one of the central bases on which this market will rise.

Increasing Noise Pollution Levels to Hinder Uptake of Vehicle Horns
The automotive horn market growth may face obstacles as the nuisance of car honking is creating multiple problems in urban areas of large cities the world over. One of the most serious issues of honking is that of noise pollution. For instance, the Aurangabad Municipal Corporation released an ‘Environment Status Report’ which stated that during the day, permissible noise levels should at or under 45 decibels, while at night they should not exceed 35 decibels. However, the Center for Science and Environment found that noise levels reach 90 decibels in megacities such as Delhi during peak traffic hours. The menace of noise pollution cannot be ignored as it can have serious ramifications of human and animal health. According to the World Health Organization, incessant noise can have disastrous physiological effects such as cognitive impairment, adverse birth effects, triggering of cardiovascular conditions, and others. Thus, while consumers may not reject car horns wholesale, rising environmental consciousness may stymie their sales in the long run.
Surging Economic Development to Boost Sales in Asia-Pacific
Asia-Pacific is anticipated to dominate the automotive horn market share during the forecast period on account of rapid economic growth and development, which is fueling the demand for enhanced automotive parts in the region. Moreover, the overall automotive industry in the region is prospering, augmenting the market further. Increasingly stringent safety regulations for vehicles and rising sales for passenger vehicles will be the main driving factors for the market in Europe. In North America, there is a growing preference for horns that are environment-friendly, compelling domestic car manufacturers to innovate.
