What is driving the demand for seat thermal solutions in vehicles?

Technology Trends

Seat thermal solutions can share the load of the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system in internal combustion engine (ICE)-powered vehicles, and can be very effective in helping electric vehicles to maintain a pleasant cabin temperature without impacting their driving range.

The demand for seat thermal solutions is forecast to grow rapidly as automakers focus on delivering more effective, more localized and personal thermal comfort in cabins of new vehicles. Automakers mainly offer heated seats and ventilated seats. However, many vehicles also feature more advanced climate-controlled seats, which can efficiently manage both heating and cooling functions using the same set of components.
