Advanced Driver Assistance System refers to a wide array of active and passive technologies designed to aid the driver in comfort, safety, and efficiency. The safety of drivers, passengers, and pedestrians has been enhanced thanks to these measures. Sensors, cameras, radars and software play a role in the vehicle’s precise operation. ADAS features include autonomous emergency braking, blind-spot recognition, adaptive cruise control, park assist, and lane departure warning. The automotive industry has significantly benefitted from artificial intelligence (AI).
The growth of the vehicle sector and new technologies are driving the ADAS market, according to Straits Research. Urbanization, industrialization, improved living standards and adoption of autonomous vehicles are projected to boost the ADAS market over the research period. Driver carelessness and mistakes cause most accidents. Road traffic accidents kill 1.3 million people annually. ADAS reduces traffic congestion and road accidents and increases car and pedestrian safety.
Growing Market Demand for Safety Features, Greater Convenience, and High Efficiency
By supporting the driver through artificial intelligence and other cutting-edge technologies, the sophisticated driver assistance systems prevent distraction and lessen pressure on the driver. The application of such systems in automobiles has expanded due to the quick adoption of cutting-edge technology in software algorithms, mapping, computers, cameras, and sensors. To improve the security of drivers and passengers and reduce traffic deaths, automakers are incorporating driver assistance technologies into their vehicles. The demand for ADAS in the automobile sector is gradually rising due to these safety features and high-efficiency elements.
Demand for driver assistance systems is growing globally due to rising disposable income and people’s growing preference for luxury, better safety, and comfort amenities in their automobiles. Furthermore, ADAS integration in entry-level and mid-sized vehicles has become a must for all automotive manufacturers because of numerous government laws, generating significant revenue for the sector.
Stringent vehicle safety standards
Increasing awareness regarding car safety ratings and reducing component costs due to the extensive deployment of cameras and radars will be essential growth factors for the ADAS market. Major OEMs are implementing ADAS technology to attain more outstanding safety ratings to attract more consumers. Because of this, top OEMs either standardize safety systems across all models or provide them as extra options. Thus, the increasing penetration of sophisticated driver assistance system features will increase the demand for components such as radar, cameras, ultrasonic sensors, and LiDAR over the forecast period.
Growth opportunities for the global advanced driver assistance system market
The emergence of self-driving vehicles
The deployment of self-driving cars is expected to alter commuting. ADAS technology has considerably decreased driving complexity with lane monitoring, emergency braking, stability controls, and others. Autonomous cars use advanced technologies and systems such as ultrasonic sensors, LiDAR, radar, and high-definition cameras to acquire data. An autonomous driving system processes this information to ensure safe vehicle operation. Tesla, Volkswagen, Ford, GM, and Waymo will release fully autonomous vehicles in the following years. Nissan said in March 2018 that ProPILOT would be available in 20 vehicles by 2022. With a greater emphasis on autonomous driving technologies, OEMs will be able to include additional cruise control features and enhanced safety systems for semi-autonomous vehicles.
