Trailer Assist System Segmentation

Component (Camera/Sensor, Software Module)

The camera/sensor segment is estimated to hold 70% share of the global trailer assist system market in the coming years owing to the higher demand for automotive sensors across the globe. For instance, the widespread use of ADAS and AD systems and the severe government restrictions to reduce CO2 emissions are driving up the need for automotive sensors. Image processing techniques are the foundation of trailer assist systems, which give drivers a clear picture of the trailer and its surroundings. To find the blind spots, a camera takes pictures of a trailer that is hitched to a car, whereas the ultrasonic sensor measures space monitoring and distances to obstructions. This helps in preventing accidents and enhances safety.

Vehicle Type {Passenger Vehicle (PV), Light Commercial Vehicle (LPV), Heavy Commercial Vehicle (HCV)}

The passenger vehicle segment in the trailer assist system market is set to garner a notable share of 51% in the near future since very less OEMs are offering trailer assist systems in light commercial vehicles. The trailer assist system in trucks is very different from that of LCVs and passenger cars. They offer support to truck movement while reversing the truck by identifying small, big, static, or moving objects placed in the blind spot near the vehicle and putting brakes automatically.
