Limiting Robust Machine Vision to Hamper the Growth of the Market

Radar has a strong ability to detect the trajectory of dynamic objects and view things. However, the irregular nature of radio waves limits their ability to classify objects and locate vehicles. Advance driver assistance system (ADAS) applications typically use gigahertz frequencies between 70 GHz and 90 GHz, resulting in very narrow bands that compromise the angular resolution of radar devices. Additionally, the use of transmitter and receiver antennas makes it bulky and difficult to mount. In general, the classification, resolution, and sizing challenges appear to be difficult for manufacturers to solve, as solving one challenge adversely affects other parameters. For example, if the development focuses on improving resolution, the need for more transmitters will grow, increasing the sensor's overall size.

Medium-Range Radar Segment Dominates the Market Owing to its Lower Cost and Precise Operation

Based on the range, the market is segmented into short-range radar (SRR), medium-range radar (MRR), and long-range radar (LRR). Medium-range radar is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period, owing to the increasing inclination of consumers towards applications such as Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), heading distance indicator, Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB), and rear cross-traffic alert. The medium-range radar comprises digital beamforming (DBF) and 3-4 receive channels. This helps medium-range radar to be configured with independent receive channels for different directions, which increases the measurement accuracy of MRR.

MRR gives accurate information about users' blind spots and traffic coming forward from the rear side of the vehicle. Long Range Radar (LRR) is expected to be the fastest-growing segment in the market and helps detect objects from meters to hundreds of meters away. This sensor provides information on objects' relative position, speed, and size around the vehicle. LRR has greatly contributed to improving vehicle safety and enabling the development of autonomous driving technology. By feeding real-world data to decision-making algorithms, vehicles can better understand their surroundings and make informed driving decisions.

By Application Analysis

Adaptive Cruise Control Segment to Lead the Market Strict Vehicle Safety Norms

By application type, the market is fragmented into Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB), Blind Spot Detection (BSD), Forward-Collision Warning (FCW), and Intelligent Parking Assistance. Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) is expected to drive the market owing to stringent government regulations to avoid collisions on the road. Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) helps the vehicle to adapt the speed according to the surrounding vehicles. RADAR equipped at the vehicle's front end helps detect the vehicle's speed ahead and adjusts its speed accordingly. If the forward vehicle reduces speed, ACC detects the change and slows down the vehicle to maintain a gap between them. If ACC detects that the vehicle ahead is no longer in the Range, it again accelerates to the speed set by the user. Automating and de-accelerating the vehicle are done automatically without the user's interference. Intelligent parking assistance holds the second-largest position in the market. The intelligent parking assistance system parks the car by itself without the need for a human driver and with high accuracy and less time than the experienced driver. This system uses a combination of cameras and sensors for its precise operation. This factor is expected to maintain the second-largest position of the intelligent parking assistance system over the forecast period.
