Radar Sensors Market Trends

Automotive Sector to Hold Significant Market Share During the Forecast Period

The robust growth of the autonomous car market has been instrumental in driving the radar sensor market. For instance, according to OICA, in 2022, about 81.63 million motor vehicles were sold worldwide. This was an increase of about 3.47% compared to the year 2020.

Blind spot detection (BSD), collision mitigation (CM), lane change assistance (LCA), parking assistance (PA), and rear cross-traffic alert (RCTA) functions are the most common uses of radar sensors in automobiles. The increase in AEB (automatic emergency braking) applications in the 77 GHz radar market is primarily responsible for expanding the market for automotive radar sensors.

The New Car Assessment Programme among OEMs, which integrates these systems to supplement camera devices for ADAS applications, is the driving force behind the development of radar technology. Radars offer improved safety and collision avoidance information when used with other sensors.

With the recent focus on safety in the United States, such as the release of new federal guidance for automated vehicles- Automated Vehicles 3.0 by the NHTSA, the market potential for ADAS has been extended to mid-end cars, resulting in a production volume increase. Many brands are increasingly employing radar sensors. The factors above are significantly impacting the market for radar sensors.

Furthermore, with the advent and demand for smart and self-driving cars, the market for radar sensors is expected to grow significantly, owing to the developments in the automotive sector.
