Automotive radar is one of the leading technologies, owing to its high information content, including range and speed detection when compared to many alternative sensors, especially visual sensors. Especially for radar, European Commission has mandated a “permanent” band at 79 GHz and is required to be made available in all EU member states, which is regarded as the foundation for the future development of the automotive radar market.

Automotive RADAR Market Dynamics and Trends

The Global Automotive Radar market growth is driven by a rise in the number of RADAR sensors used per vehicle, rising demand for premium segment vehicles, and stringent government safety regulations are the major drivers for the growth of the market. Rising demand for premium segment vehicles is the major driver for market growth.

Major premium vehicle manufacturers such as BMW, Mercedes Benz, AUDI, and Volkswagen group are pushing the market growth worldwide. For instance, Mercedes-Benz has been the global luxury sales crown for the third consecutive year in 2018, outpacing its rival BMW by nearly 200,000 vehicles.

Companies are focusing to launch radar safety as a standard feature. For instance, Lexus, the luxury vehicle division of the Japanese automaker Toyota announced that all its vehicles started with the 2020 model year with radar safety features as a standard. Europe region has witnessed high demands for a premium cars compared to other segment vehicles, which is increasing the adoption of radar systems in the region.

Sensor malfunction issues and high cost of sensing technology are the key restraints hampering the market growth globally. Furthermore, technical issues such as the risk of mutual interference are expected to moderately affect the adoption of this technology in the forecast period.

Automotive RADAR Market Segmentation Analysis

Based on the application, the Automotive Radar market is segmented into adaptive cruise control, blind-spot detection, intelligent parking assistance, autonomous emergency braking, and forward-collision warning system. Adaptive cruise control has shown considerable growth in recent years with increasing demand for driver and passenger safety. The Adaptive cruise control segment size was worth USD XX billion in 2018 and is forecasted to reach USD XX billion by 2026, at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period.

Adaptive cruise control in road vehicles that automatically adjusts the vehicle speed to maintain a safe distance from vehicles ahead. Automotive radar systems are the primary sensors used in adaptive cruise control and are critical sensor systems in autonomous driving assistance systems. Adaptive cruise control does not provide full autonomy and the system only provides some help to the driver but does not drive the car by itself.

Recently, automotive radar is implemented in many high-end cars to enable essential safety and comfort features including adaptive cruise control. For instance, Audi A4, Acura TLX, Buick Lacrosse, Chevrolet Blazer, Ford Expedition, Jeep Wrangler, Kia Niro are the various vehicle models supporting adaptive cruise control in an automotive radar system. Chevrolet Silverado (2020) and Toyato Corolla (2020) are the few vehicles that are about to launch with adaptive cruise control with an automotive radar system.

Based on the frequency type, the Automotive Radar market is segmented into 24-29 GHZ and 77-79 GHz. For short and mid-range products, there’s more diversity with modules powered at 24 and 77 GHz and even 79 GHz. So far, 24-29 GHz has been more common for short-range applications, but 77-79 GHz is gaining traction. Long-range applications have adopted 77-79 GHz frequency worldwide. Regulatory approval of upcoming radar technology such as 79 GHz band radar across emerging markets such as India, Mexico, etc. can generate robust growth opportunities in the market.

Both 77 GHz and 79-GHz frequencies have a better form factor with 3X smaller antennas and benefit from a wide frequency band of 4 GHz. This opens opportunities for high-efficient radar, which is critical for autonomous cars. Continental AG integrated the 77 GHz RADAR technology from Freescale Semiconductors (U.S.) into the company's next-generation short- and mid-range automotive RADAR modules. The next generation of 77 GHz RADAR solutions was built on its existing S32R RADAR microcontroller and MR2001 scalable RADAR transceiver chipset, which was applicable for the ADAS system. Research centers like IMEC in Belgium have been focusing on it for a few years now, and a significant number of startups created over the last two years have targeted high-resolution radar with the 79-GHz solution.

By vehicle type, the Automotive Radar market is segmented into a commercial vehicles and a passenger vehicles. and Based on the range, the Automotive Radar market is segmented into long-range radar and medium & short-range radar.

Automotive RADAR Market Geographical Share

The North America Automotive Radar market size was worth USD XX billion in 2018 and is forecasted to reach USD XX billion by 2026, at a high CAGR during the forecast period.
