U.S. Smart Helmet Market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

Smart helmets offer better safety to individuals while using automobiles or working at construction sites. Smart helmets of the new age incorporate many technologically advanced features such as GPS, map navigation, health monitoring (Skin temperature monitoring), sensor data collection, humidity check, air quality check, live streaming camera, and interconnected devices, among other features. Key market players are launching innovative solutions in the market with revolutionary features. For instance, in May 2022, Sena Technologies, Inc. announced the launch of OutForce, a full face motorcycle smart helmet. The helmet has features such as Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity, 4-way Bluetooth Intercom, smartphone app compatibility, and integrated speakers & microphones. Such product launches are harnessing innovation and growth in the market.

Additionally, smart helmet technology providers are investing aggressively in research & development activities to develop innovative products and expand their respective product portfolios. New product launches are particularly aimed at enhancing the efficiency of a smart helmet and providing a better customer experience. For instance, in November 2021, Huawei, a technology provider, announced the launch of the Helmetphone BH51M Neo, a smart helmet, in China. The smart helmet offered smart features such as voice commands and Bluetooth calling. It is powered by the company’s operating system: HarmonyOS, and is suitable for biking, skateboarding, roller skating, and electric bicycle. Such product launches are contributing to the market’s growth.

Road traffic accidents are a significant public safety issue and the primary cause of disability and deaths worldwide. As per the World Health Organization (WHO), around 1.2 million people die yearly due to traffic accidents, and many are wounded or disabled. Moreover, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), an agency of the U.S. federal government and part of the Department of Transportation, 5,579 motorcyclists died in 2020, and another 82,528 were injured. The most common causes of motorcycle accidents were speeding, distracted driving, alcohol, and drug impairment, and improper lane use. The rising number of road accidents is driving governments across the globe to mandate helmet usage, creating significant growth opportunities for the smart helmet industry.

As per the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the efficacy of motorcycle helmets in reducing fatal injuries for riders and passengers is reported to be 37% and 41%, respectively. Additionally, the employment of motorcycle helmets is estimated to have safeguarded over 25,000 lives since 2002. Nevertheless, the expansion of the smart helmet industry may face significant impediments such as the high cost of smart helmets, substantial investments required in product research and development, apprehensions regarding vision obstruction, and inadequate knowledge concerning the safety benefits of these helmets. In response to these challenges, manufacturers are emphasizing on enhancing consumer awareness about the functionalities of smart helmets through diverse digital media platforms.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic adversely affected the smart helmet industry, mainly due to the restrictions and lockdowns imposed by governments on numerous industries to prevent the spread of the virus. This scenario led to disruptions in the supply chain operations, which decreased the sales of smart helmets during lockdowns. Moreover, restrictions on the movement of people reduced the demand for smart helmets among bike riders. On the other hand, frontline workers used smart helmets for temperature monitoring in several countries. For instance, in June 2020, officials from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) started using smart helmets that automatically scan people’s body temperature via thermal radiation. Such features of smart helmets proved to be beneficial during the COVID-19 pandemic. Furthermore, the demand in the global smart helmet industry is poised to increase as the consumer, construction, and manufacturing industry recovers from the adversities of the pandemic.

Type Insights

Based on type, the global smart helmet industry has been further segmented into full-face, half face, and hard hat segments. The full-face segment dominated the market in 2022 and accounted for a revenue share of more than 58.0%. Numerous companies across the globe are focusing on developing full-face smart helmets with built-in Bluetooth communication systems. For instance, in June 2020, Sena Technologies, Inc, a technology provider for motorcycle communications, announced the launch of Outrush, a modular smart helmet equipped with a Bluetooth communication system. Outrush is a DOT-certified helmet and was the latest addition to the company's line of smart helmets. Such launches bode well for the growth of the segment.

The hard hat segment is also expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to the increasing demand for hard hats in North America and Europe's manufacturing, mining, and construction industries. Occupational injuries in the construction sector are a global issue, and the sector witnesses frequent accidents. Smart hard hats are used in the manufacturing, construction, and mining industries to identify harmful gas leakages, track real-time locations, and analyze the health vitals of users. These helmets aim to ensure enhanced safety for workers operating in challenging environments, driving the segment's demand in the smart helmet industry.

Component Insights

Based on component, the global smart helmet industry has been further segmented into communication, navigation, camera, and others (audio systems, health monitoring, lighting, and safety features). The communication segment dominated the market in 2022 and accounted for a revenue share of more than 33.0%. Smart helmets are incorporated with the Integration Communication System (ICS), allowing the bike rider to control all the functions and applications via voice order. When users connect their phones to the smart helmet, they can perform several hands-free functions, such as making calls and finding directions through the helmet’s microphone, contributing to the segment’s growth.

The navigation segment is expected to emerge as the fastest-growing segment over the forecast period. Smart helmets offer navigation, positioning, and tracking features owing to the use of a Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS). They are incorporated with Augmented Reality (AR) interface, which allows the bike rider to view the projected image, on the helmet visor, about the route and other important aspects while maintaining complete focus on the road. Such features make the driving experience easier for motorcyclists. Additionally, workers in industries such as mining are leveraging smart helmets with navigation systems that help them navigate harsh or remote environments. Such factors are contributing to the segment’s increasing growth.
