Automotive Radar Market - Expected to Reach $12.1 Billion by 2025

DUBLIN, Dec. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

The "Automotive Radar Market Analysis by Range (Long Range, Medium & Short Range), by Vehicle Type (Passenger Cars, Commercial Vehicles), by Application, by Frequency, by Region and Segment Forecasts, 2014 - 2025" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

The global automotive radar market is expected to reach USD 12.16 billion by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 20.8%, according to a study conducted by The report, Inc. The growing focus on active safety features, innovations in the radar technology, decreasing prices of components, and increasing sales of vehicles are the propelling factors for market growth. Radars play a vital role in detecting objects in various safety systems including adaptive cruise control, pedestrian detection system, blind spot detection, and automated emergency braking.

In order to achieve complete vehicle autonomy, it is essential for automakers to focus on the enhancement of the radar technology and subsequently on the reduction in the size of radar systems. One of the major hurdles hampering the growth of automotive radars is the lack of uniform frequency allocation across the globe. Moreover, the use of higher frequency band is likely to lead to higher resolution benefits and promote the use of a single technology for all applications, thereby reducing the risk of mutual interference. The European Commission has already initiated the 79 GHz project for vehicular radars, which has been the foundation for the future development of the automotive radar market.

The market is characterized by the presence of prominent automotive electronics manufacturers including Continental AG, Robert Bosch GmbH, Infineon Technologies AG, and Texas Instruments, among others. Strong R&D capabilities have led to the development of application-oriented radars. Additionally, they have assisted radar manufacturers in complying with different frequency standards present in different countries.

According to the World Health Organization, globally 1.25 million people suffer from death due to road traffic crashes each year. Road accidents are likely to become the seventh leading cause of death by 2030 if appropriate measures to increase vehicle safety are not taken. Thus, the need to protect drivers and passengers from potential accidents would play an important role in determining the growth of the automotive radar market.

Further Key Findings From The Study Suggest:

    --  Medium & short range radar is the fastest growing segment in terms of
        range, owing to their growing use in numerous applications, such as
        blind spot detection, lane change assist, and park assist, among others.
    --  In terms of vehicle types, the passenger car segment is projected to
        drive the market, owing to the rising radar-based safety systems in
        mid-priced passenger cars.
    --  Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) is projected to hold the largest market
        size by 2025 owing to rising safety concerns among growing automotive
        markets such as India and China.
    --  Increasing efforts from the National Highway Traffic Safety
        Administration (NHTSA), the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, and
        prominent automakers operating in the U.S. for mandating the
        installation of AEBs in all cars by 2022 are likely to boost the
        automotive radar market.
