Continuously increasing use of radar systems per vehicle across the globe have driven the growth of the global automotive RADAR market.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), road accidents are prone to be one of the major causes of death by the end of 2030. Additionally, increasing R&D expenditure and government initiatives have boosted the growth of the automotive RADAR market. On the other hand, as the use of these systems is considered illegal in some countries, it is expected to slow the growth of the automotive RADAR market during the forecasted period. According to Acumen Research and Consulting, the global automotive RADAR market value is expected to worth around $10.5 billion by 2026, at a significant growth rate of 20.4% (during the forecasted period 2019 to 2026).
On the basis of range type, the market is segmented into short range RADAR, medium range RADAR and high range RADAR. The short and medium range RADAR is anticipated to witness fastest growth owing to their larger application base. Based on frequency type, the market is segmented into 2X-GHZ and 7X-GHZ. On the basis of application, the market is segmented into Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Blind Spot Detection (BSD), Forward Collision Warning System and Intelligent Parking Assistance. Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) is expected to witness the fastest growth till the end of forecast period.
Europe dominates the global automotive RADAR markets across the globe as it is one of the pioneers in the use of automotive RADAR systems. Also, the rapid adoption of technological innovations and product launches by this region is anticipated to drive the growth of automotive RADAR market. Increasing government support and growing expenditure on R&D are also projected to drive the Europe automotive RADAR market. France and Germany are the largest contributors to Europe market growth owing to increasing investments in automotive sector.
