Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023-2033

Automotive Radar Market size is projected to surpass USD 15 billion by the end of 2033, witnessing around 12% CAGR during the forecast period, i.e., 2023-2033. In the year 2022, the industry size of automotive radar was USD 5 billion. The growth of the market can primarily be attributed to the growing number of vehicles on the road, along with rising concern over the increasing incidence of road accidents worldwide, and surging demand for features related to the safety of the vehicles. For instance, according to World Health Organization data, road traffic crashes result in nearly 1.3 million deaths each year.

Automotive radar systems are critical sensor systems in advanced driving assistance systems and primary sensors that are used in adaptive cruise control. Radars provide evident benefits such as detecting motion, measuring speed, distance, and the angle of arrival as well as the direction of movement that serve various purposes such as collision avoidance, and pedestrian & cyclist detection. Radar complements vision-based camera-sensing systems that can work in adverse conditions such as rain, fog, and dust, enabling the coverage of long-range as well as close distances. With the recent advancements in radar sensors as well as steering assistance, the demand for automotive radar is on the rise among vehicle users, which in turn, is expected to create massive revenue generation opportunities for the key players operating in the global automotive radar market during the forecast period. For instance, steering assistance features used to keep a vehicle in its lane were installed in almost 63% and ~56% of new cars sold in United States and Europe in 2021.

Automotive Radar Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Growing Demand Radar in Autonomous Vehicles – Radar operates at frequencies of 24, 74, 77, and 79 GHz in autonomous vehicles. There are two types of radar for autonomous vehicular applications, impulse and frequency-modulated continuous wave (FMCW). With the rising demand for autonomous vehicles, the automotive radar market is expected to boost in the projected period. It is estimated that autonomous vehicles will account for approximately 12 percent of total car registrations by 2030 globally.

  • Increasing Demand for Cars – With the burgeoning population, the need for individualized and personalized transportation has generated a high demand for cars. With the increasing production of cars, the demand for automotive radars is also expected to grow and bring profitable opportunities for the market in the forecast period. The sales of the car are expected to reach more than 100 million units by 2030 worldwide.

  • Upsurge in the Installations of Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) – Recent statistics revealed that advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) features were installed in about 1 billion cars in use in 2020 across the world.

  • Rising Penetration of Connected Cars – For instance, there were over 200 million connected cars in 2021, and this ratio is expected to expand to nearly 400 million connected cars by 2025 worldwide.


  • Possibility of Data Threat - Security flaws in automobile technologies such as radar and dedicated short-range communication (DSRC) must be properly investigated as vehicles become more automated. Existing automotive radar solutions are sensitive to data threats such as jamming, interference, and spoofing. Such spoofing attacks from outside parties, potentially result in deadly accidents, hence the associated data threat is estimated to hamper the growth of the market over the forecast period.
  • Huge Investment is Required for Research & Development
  • High Cost of Installation of Advanced Features in Automobiles

Automotive Radar Segmentation

Vehicle Type (Passenger Vehicles, Commercial Vehicles)

The global automotive radar market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by vehicle type into passenger, and commercial vehicles. Amongst these segments, the commercial vehicles segment is anticipated to garner the largest revenue by the end of 2033, as some radar sensors are specially adapted for commercial vehicle to enable fast, robust, and highly accurate object detection. Furthermore, the growing demand for commercial vehicles, along with the radical surge in the sale of commercial vehicles worldwide, is further anticipated to boost the market’s growth. For instance, the sale of commercial vehicles in the United States exceeded around 12,050,000 units in 2021.

Application {Blind Spot Detection (BSD), Forward Collision Warning System, Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Intelligent Park Assist, Other Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) Applications}

The global automotive radar market is also segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by application into blind spot detection (BSD), forward collision warning system, autonomous emergency braking (AEB), adaptive cruise control (ACC), intelligent park assist, and other advanced driver assistance system (ADAS). Out of these, the intelligent park assist segment is attributed to garner the highest revenue by the end of the forecast period. The major factor contributing to the high demand for intelligent park assist applications is the need for parking assistance by the population to avoid backside collisions and accidents. Further, the demand for luxury vehicles, sports cars, and advanced vehicles also needs intelligent park assist features to enhance safety. Also, another factor contributing positively to the segment’s growth is the installation of intelligent park assist in electric vehicles. On the other hand, the adaptive cruise control (ACC) segment is also expected to hold a significant share over the analysis period. The high utilization rate of adaptive cruise control in significant automotive markets such as Germany, the U.S., the UK, and China, among others, is considered to create a positive outlook for segment growth. In addition, the various advantages and prominent benefits offered by adaptive cruise control in vehicle safety and the level of automation in a vehicle make it an ideal option in the automotive industry for improving vehicles.
