Automotive Radar Market

The global Automotive Radar Market is estimated to Propelled by Increased Vehicle Safety Regulations


The automotive radar market consists of radar sensors that are installed in vehicles to assist with driver safety features such as adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, forward-collision warning, and parking assistance. Automotive radar enhances driving experience and safety by detecting obstacles and alerting drivers.

The global Automotive Radar Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 5.6 Bn in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 11% over the forecast period 2024 to 2031, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market key trends:

Increased vehicle safety regulations across markets have driven the adoption of advanced driver-assistance systems that use automotive radar. Stringent safety norms introduced by regulatory bodies such as NCAP and FMVSS in countries like the US, Canada, Europe, and Japan now mandate the inclusion of basic driver-assistance features such as forward-collision warning and autonomous emergency braking in new vehicles. This is largely propelling the demand for automotive radars from automakers to comply with evolving safety standards. Further, the development of highly accurate short-range and long-range radars by leading radar manufacturers is supporting OEMs in developing advanced driver-assistance and semi-autonomous vehicles with improved perception capabilities.

SWOT Analysis

Strength: Automotive radar technology offers improved safety by detecting objects and alerting drivers. It enables advanced driver assistance systems like adaptive cruise control.

Weakness: High manufacturing costs make automotive radar expensive to integrate in entry-level vehicles. Dependence on semiconductor supply poses constraints.

Opportunity: Growing demand for autonomous and semi-autonomous vehicles will boost radar adoption across luxury and premium vehicle segments. Connected vehicles require advanced driver assistance features supported by radar.

Threats: Alternative sensor technologies like camera, lidar and ultrasonic sensors can perform some functions of radar. Stringent regulations around radio spectrum allocation impact radar design.
