A bumper, which is attached to the vehicle's front-most and rear-most ends, is a safety device designed to absorb or alleviate impact in a collision and protect the vehicle’s front and rear ends. In appearance, it is designed to avoid the impact of the vehicle’s external damage on the safety system, but indeed this design is increasingly being used to protect pedestrians.
Bumpers, one of easily delicate products, mainly involve the new car supporting market (OEM) and after-sales replacement market.
