Market Outlook

The acoustic vehicle alerting system market value is projected to advance at a CAGR of 11.9% during 2020–2030. owing to the stringent emission norms and government support, in the form of tax rebates, grants and subsidies, and other non-financial benefits, to promote electric vehicle (EVs) adoption. Due to the accelerating demand for EVs, a total of 24.7 million acoustic vehicle alerting systems (AVAS) were installed in electric two-wheelers and passenger cars in 2019.

The AVAS has become an integral component of all types of EVs, as it concerns pedestrian safety, especially the more-vulnerable sections, including children, blind people, aged people, and people with partial vision. The mandate to install this system has come into force in several countries, for vehicles with the model year 2019.

Acoustic Vehicle Alerting System Market Outlook

Before the COVID-19 outbreak, 2020 was expected to be a crucial year for EV manufacturers, as numerous players were preparing for launching new products and planning to enhance their capabilities. But the pandemic has completely transformed the market scenario for all the stakeholders in the EV sector. Preventive measures such as complete lockdown and curfews in hotspot areas have significantly reduced the supply and demand for EVs and other automobiles. The reduced EV production and sale have adversely impacted the acoustic vehicle alerting system market. Moreover, the stooping crude oil prices will substantially reduce the adoption of EVs and AVASs, as economies of scale would be strongly against their favor.

Highest Adoption of AVAS Seen in Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs)

Various governments are implementing regulations for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and aftermarket entities to install AVASs in battery electric vehicles (BEVs) in stipulated time. Owing to these factors, the BEV category is expected to hold the dominant position within the propulsion segment of the market till 2030. Government support, in the form of financial incentives, for the development and purchase of BEVs and enhancements in the battery technology will also accelerate the adoption of such automobiles in the future, which will likely make up for 70% of the plug-in EVs sold by 2030.

Four-Wheeler Vehicles To Record Faster Growth

The four-wheeler category, within the vehicle segment, is expected to display the faster growth between 2020 and 2030.

Whereas, the aftermarket category is projected to witness the faster growth in the future, primarily on account of the natural wear and tear and end of life of AVAS components and the government regulations in leading markets for such systems and EVs. For instance, the U.S. has mandated the retrofitting of AVASs in old EVs by 2021.

Integrated AVAS To Witness Faster Rise in Adoption

The integrated category is expected to exhibit the faster growth in the acoustic vehicle alerting system industry in the near future, under segmentation by mounting. This will be due to the increasing integration of AVASs in four-wheelers, where these components form a major part. Moreover, the spurring production and sales of electric passenger cars and light-duty trucks will support the growth of this category.

Asia-Pacific (APAC) To Retain Its Dominance on Market

APAC is expected to maintain its dominance on the acoustic vehicle alerting system market during 2020–2030, accounting for around 80% sales of such systems in 2030. This can be owed to the soaring demand for EVs in developing countries, including India and China. These economies view EVs as a viable mode of future mobility and energy security, as these nations are highly dependent on oil imports for their energy requirements.

The leading share of electric two-wheelers and rising demand for such vehicles will boost AVAS sales in APAC. Additionally, this region is home to various global EV and component manufacturers. Furthermore, the top position of APAC in the EV market, led by China, is a vital factor behind the regional market’s growth. Besides, the growing focus of Chinese automakers on electric variants will act as a growth driver for the market.

Europe To Record Fastest Growth

At present, the European market is in its nascent phase and thriving on the government regulations that obligate the inclusion of AVAS components in hybrid and electric vehicles. The European Union (EU) plans to phase out internal combustion (ICE) vehicles to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and oil imports dependence. Many countries also individually aim to ban ICE vehicle sales between 2030 and 2040. Owing to these factors, the region will record the fastest growth in the acoustic vehicle alerting system market till 2030.

It is being estimated that by 2030, nearly 30% of all the vehicles sold in Europe will be electric, on account of the regulatory push in several countries and rapidly improving economies of EVs. As the installation of AVAS components is directly proportional to EV sales, this region is expected to provide ample opportunities to key players in the market for acoustic vehicle alerting systems.
