Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2024-2036

Occupant Monitoring System Market size is expected to cross USD 230 Million by the end of 2036, expanding around 20% CAGR during the forecast period, i.e., 2024-2036. In the year 2023, the industry size of occupant monitoring system was USD 45 Million. The growth of the market can be attributed to the growing adoption of connected vehicles. In 2023, globally around 192 million connected vehicles are deployed on the road and it is expected to surpass 400 million by the end of 2025. Owing to the greater use of electronics in automobiles over the last decade has increased the capability of monitoring and recording both the external and internal surroundings of the vehicle. Connected automobiles are able to exchange this type of data with additional devices, particularly other cars, through the Internet.

In addition to these, factors that are believed to fuel the growth of occupant monitoring system market include the growing number of border security checkups. Stringent border security requires thorough inspections of vehicles, which increases the demand for advanced occupant monitoring solutions to ensure compliance and security. Stringent border security is often a matter of national security and occupant monitor plays a crucial role in detecting any potential threat to the nation. At border crossings and checkpoints, occupant monitoring systems are utilized to inspect vehicles and verify the number of occupants. The use of occupant monitoring systems has become increasingly important during COVID-19 to detect any potential cases of COVID positive among passengers crossing international borders. Furthermore, the system can also help crime authorities find cases of smuggling, human trafficking, and illicit goods transportation among many others. UK Defense and Security Exports have also introduced new security measures that will involve the use of various advanced technology that will maintain security at international borders.

Occupant Monitoring System Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges


Growth Drivers

  • Growing Development in Sensing Technology - Sensor technology is getting increasingly complex and inexpensive. All sensor technologies employed in automotive applications are progressing and evolving they are becoming smaller, more powerful, and less obtrusive. Cameras, radar, and LiDAR, paired with increased computational power, are essential for enabling better in-cabin services and complete independence. For instance, the mmWave radar has the ability to identify the existence of an individual in even the most difficult environmental conditions, such as intense light and darkness and it is especially for in-cabin applications. mmWave radar sensors can distinguish between a child and an adult sitting in a seat, allowing airbag deployment to be modified proportionately.
  • Growing Focus of Government on Vehicle Safety - Governments all across the world have proposed and implemented strict safety regulations for the automotive industry. Thesrules often include the need for better safety features, such as occupant monitoring systems, to protect passengers and enforce safety. Occupant monitoring systems enhance safety by detecting the various factors, such as s seatbelts use number of passengers, and if the children are unattended in the vehicles or there are any pets. Government rising efforts have improved the overall safety of automobiles and the need to comply with these regulations has increased its adoption by consumers. Moreover, these regulations also enable automakers to meet the safety standards and expectations of consumers.
  • Integration of AI in Occupant Sensors - The Integration of artificial has enabled the analysis of data extracted from occupant sensors with more precision, and it also helps the occupant monitoring system to accurately detect and recognize several factors, such as the number and the position of occupants in the vehicle and monitors the activity of passengers. AI can detect several signs of occupants, such as driver distraction, drowsiness, medical emergencies, and others. This information provides timely triggers to the driver and helps in preventing accidents. Over this, voice recognition is an additional factor offered by artificial intelligence that be used for convenient interaction between vehicle’s control systems and occupants.


  • Concerns Associated with Data Security- like any other data processing system, occupant monitoring systems are also prone to several risks related to data security. Hacker is a malicious activity performed by people who can attempt to enter the system illegally and gain authorized access, which comprises the data stored in it. The data gathered by the occupant monitoring system, including sensor data, occupant numbers, and video footage can be valuable data for cybercriminals and it can exploit the sensitive information. It also raises privacy concerns among the consumers. Moreover, attackers may also attempt to change and manipulate the data recorded by the monitoring system as really, it gives false alarms, and can also lead to serious accidents.
  • The implementation cost of the occupant monitoring system is high
  • There are technological challenges in integrating the system, with an older vehicle

Occupant Monitoring System Segmentation

Technology (Infrared, Ultrasonic, Hybrid)

The infrared segment is estimated to hold 45% share of the global occupant monitoring system market in the year 2036. The growth of the segment can be attributed to the rising demand for vehicles with driving assistance and automotive safety systems. ADAS systems are an essential component of self-driving cars, and as technology progresses, the need for ADAS systems is likely to skyrocket. In some advanced systems, infrared-based sensors can monitor the driver’s conditions, such as their head position and eye movements. This information can raise an alarm when the driver is feeling drowsy or sleepy, thus altering the driver to stay attentive. In the last five years, an estimated 1.35 million drivers have been involved in a sleepy driving-related crash in the United States.

Vehicle Type (Passenger Vehicles, Commercial Vehicles)

Occupant monitoring system market from the passenger vehicles segment is expected to garner a significant share of around 60% in the year 2036. The growth of the segment is attributed to rising demand for passenger cars. In 2022, over 58 million passenger automobiles had been sold around the world, representing a 1.9 percent increase year on year. China was the world's largest regional vehicle market in 2022, with approximately 24 million units sold. Passenger cars have grown in popularity among drivers in recent years due to positive aspects such as elegant design, compact size, and low cost. In many advanced countries, passenger vehicles are the most frequent means of transportation. These vehicles are becoming more common in developing countries as the ability of nations' people to buy improves.
