Automotive Radar Market
Automotive Radar Market

Global Automotive Radar Market is expected to reach the market valuation of USD 11,165.5 million by 2027 expanding at a reasonable CAGR of 15.1% during the forecast period (2021-2027). Automotive radars are defined as distance sensors used to locate objects around the proximity of the Vehicle. It is a method of using radio waves that are used to determine the angle, range, size, and relative speed of objects across their vicinity. In today’s Vehicle safety systems, radars in conjunction with cameras, infrared, and other technology are used to acquire information about the Vehicles surrounding them. With this information, these systems can determine a driving situation and warn the driver of a potentially dangerous event. It can also command the Vehicle on its own and lessen the accident’s severity. Factors such as the adoption of radar technology in Vehicles, especially passenger and luxury vehicles. Other drivers in the market include increasing disposable income and increasing urban population. With increased disposable income, customers are influenced to adopt advanced technology products including radar technology in their Vehicles for better safety accelerating the market size of automotive radar.
