Automotive Radar Market to Reach $3.95 Billion by 2028; Soaring Investments in Research & Development to Boost Adoption & Favor Market Growth

January 06, 2022 | Automotive & Transportation

The global automotive radar market size is projected to showcase immense growth to reach USD 3.95 billion by 2028. Fortune Business Insights™ has provided this information in its report titled, “Automotive Radar Market Size, Share & COVID-19 Impact Analysis, By Range (Short-Range, Medium-Range, Long-Range), By Application (Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB), Forward-Collision Warning System (FCWS), Blind Spot Detection (BSD), Intelligent Parking Assistance), and Regional Forecast, 2021-2028”, and observes that the market size stood at 2.01 billion in 2020 and reached USD 2.07 billion in 2021. It is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 9.7% between 2021 and 2028. The soaring investments in research and development activities to produce next-generation vehicles equipped with radar sensors are anticipated to boost the growth of the market.

COVID-19: Slowdown in Autonomous Vehicle Development & Testing to Restrict Market Growth

Disruptions caused by the global COVID-19 pandemic have impacted automotive demand and production severely. The pandemic has also led to funding delays in autonomous vehicle projects, resulting in the slowdown of development and testing. Citing an instance, Volvo delayed the launch of a new fully-autonomous Level 4 vehicle from 2024 to 2027. The factors mentioned above have impacted automotive radar demand significantly.
