The global advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) market was valued at $19.8 billion in 2015. The market is expected to reach $99.6 billion by 2022, witnessing a CAGR of 27.0% during 2016–2022.
Among all regions, the Asia-Pacific (APAC) ADAS market is expected to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period. Increasing urbanization and growing demand for high-end vehicles in APAC are the key reasons for the high growth of the ADAS industry in the region. Also, the sale of passenger cars is moderate in developed countries, and the market for high-end cars has been up surging. These factors will boost the demand for ADASs.
Forces Governing ADAS Market
Key trend observed in the ADAS market is increasing number of partnerships and collaborations among market players to expand their footprint and consumer base, and to upgrade their product portfolios. For instance, Valeo SA entered into two agreements in 2015 with Safran SA and Mobileye NV. Partnership with Safran aimed at enhancement in driving aids for autonomous vehicles. On the other hand, under the partnership with Mobileye, Valeo will design front-facing camera solutions and products based on sensor fusion with the use of Mobileye’s EyeO microprocessors and computer vision algorithms. During the same year, Robert Bosch collaborated with Axel Springer Media Entrepreneurs to develop products with connected mobility solutions including digital content.
With the advancement in technology, the demand for safety and comfort features in vehicles has been increasing. This is one of the major factors propelling the growth of the ADAS market. Improvement in technology of sensor has led to development of electronic equipment. This is encouraging vehicle manufacturers to equip their vehicles with advanced features. Applications of ADASs, such as adaptive cruise control and parking aid system, have been introduced to provide comfort to drivers.
