Automotive Radar Market Size

Automotive Radar Market size estimated at around USD 1 billion in 2015, growing at a CAGR of over 15% from 2016 to 2024.

Automotive Radar Market

The automotive radar market growth is attributed to the rising investments in the countries including China, Japan, Germany, the UK, India, and the U.S. for the development of the automobile industry. For instance, in February 2016, the UK Connected Intelligent Transport Environment (UK-CITE) project received USD 28.8 million from the government’s intelligent mobility fund. The funding amount was used to develop the next generation of autonomous vehicles. According to the IBEF, the passenger vehicle production in India is expected to increase from 3.4 million in FY 2016 to 10 million in FY2020. Such a profound growth of the automobile sector will lead to the demand for automotive radar systems to support functions such as navigation, surveillance, and traffic monitoring. Radar-enabled driver assistance systems provide deep insights about vehicles’ surroundings and help drivers to identify potential hazards in advance. With the rising awareness about passenger & vehicle safety, the demand for automotive radar modules and sensors will accelerate over the forecast timeline.

U.S. Automotive Radar Industry By Application

The parking assistance systems segment will grow at a CAGR of above 15% from 2016 to 2024 due to the growing automotive applications of radar technology including parking assistance, guidance, and reverse warnings. The parking sensors provide real-time alerts to drivers for obstacles, while parking. As soon as the driver activates radar park assistant, proximity sensors calculate the parking maneuver. By following instructions given by the parking assistant, the driver can park his vehicle in the free/allotted parking bay. Huge investments for the development of smart transportation systems will increase the demand for automotive radars to make automated parking possible and assist drivers in parking their vehicles.

The Asia Pacific automotive radar market growth is driven by the rising initiatives and investments in the automobile industry and an increase in the number of vehicle accidents.
