India as Crucial Market

To illustrate, the need for driver and passenger side airbags for frontal collisions are increasing on vehicles in India. The use of side and curtain airbags to protect vehicle occupants for side collisions will likely expand as well.

Thus, to meet the accompanying growth in demand, Toyoda Gosei Minda India will expand its Neemrana plant and install airbag production equipment.
