Market Report Description

The Global Automotive Sensor Fusion Market size is expected to reach $7.3 billion by 2028, rising at a market growth of 22.8% CAGR during the forecast period.

The ability to merge information from different radars, lidars, and cameras to produce a single model or image of the space around a vehicle is referred to as sensor fusion. The model created as a result of balancing the strengths of the various sensors is more accurate. Vehicle systems can then employ more sophisticated behaviors using the data gathered through sensor fusion. There are benefits and drawbacks to each sensor type, or "modality," separately.

Even in adverse weather, radars are quite effective at calculating distance and speed, but they are unable to "see" the colour of a stoplight or read street signs. Cameras are excellent at interpreting signs or categorizing objects like humans, bicycles, and other vehicles. But they are quickly dazzled by debris, the light, the rain, the snow, or the night. Lidars are capable of precise object detection, but they lack the price or range of cameras or radar.

Utilizing software algorithms, sensor fusion combines the data from all of these different types of sensors to produce the most complete and accurate environmental model possible. Through a process called internal and external sensor fusion, it may also correlate data obtained from within the cabin. The information from numerous sensors of the same sort, such as radar, might also be combined by a vehicle via sensor fusion.

By taking advantage of slightly overlapping areas of view, this enhances perception. More than one sensor will pick up things simultaneously when more than one radar scans the area around a vehicle. The detection likelihood and reliability of things nearby the vehicle can be increased by fusing or overlapping the detections from those various sensors when interpreted by 360° perception software, which also produces a more accurate and trustworthy picture of the environment.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

Due to the adoption of lockdown following the COVID-19 pandemic, which decreased demand for automotive sensor fusion, the COVID-19 pandemic had a detrimental impact on the expansion of the automotive sensor fusion market. Import and export restrictions caused a disruption in the supply chain. Both labour and raw materials were in short supply for manufacturers. A fall in working capital, a reduction in new car sales, a shutdown of production facilities, and a limited supply of auto parts. Since the manufacturing of automobiles is reliant on the sensor fusion industry, the outbreak is anticipated to have an effect on this business. However, because the advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) is so widely used in cars, it is anticipated that there will be a rise in the need for automotive sensors.

Market Growth Factors

Government safety regulations that are strict

In order to reduce accidents and boost traffic safety, automakers have hastened the implementation of technology. Additionally, the government takes action to reduce traffic fatalities by mandating the inclusion of these technologies in all new cars. The government is being urged to enact severe restrictions relating to safety measures in vehicles by the sharp rise in traffic accidents. The requirements include installing an advanced emergency braking system, logging accidents, installing seat belt sensors that have passed crash tests, reversing sensors, and speed assistance in vehicles. The use of sensors like RADAR, LiDAR, cameras, and others allows advanced safety features like accident avoidance and mitigation, speeding warning and alerts, and adaptive cruise control system to detect and identify objects as well as track their movement The benefits of automotive sensor fusion are predicted to support market growth during the projection period.

Technical benefits offered by automotive sensor fusion

Sensor fusion is the technique of combining data from various sensors using software algorithms to produce an equally thorough and accurate picture of the environment. In an automated driving system, sensors are essential for the perception of the environment around the car, and the use and functionality of numerous integrated sensors directly affect the viability and safety of automated driving vehicles. One of the key processes in automated driving applications is sensor fusion, which combines data from various sensors to lower uncertainty compared to using each sensor separately. The benefits of automotive sensor fusion are predicted to support market growth during the projection period.

Market Restraining Factors

A malfunctioning electronic sensor system in the vehicle

Sensor data is gathered by autonomous vehicle systems, which then compute driving choices and communicate control signals to the vehicles. To combine the sensor outputs and give a more accurate image of the environment while reducing the uncertainties offered by sensor outputs, these systems are combined with multi-sensor fusion (MSF). Multi-sensor fusion (MSF) lacks knowledge of which sensors provide the most accurate data and how to appropriately combine the data the sensors produce; hence it is unable to completely remove uncertainties. It is projected that this aspect will limit market expansion.

Technology Outlook

On the basis of technology, the automotive sensor fusion market is segmented into radar sensor, IMU, image sensor, and others. In 2021, the IMU segment held the highest revenue share in the automotive sensor fusion market. An IMU is a sensor generally consisting of an accelerometer, gyroscope, and often a magnetometer. A device can get a complete picture of its orientation and motion state by looking at data from these sensors. The information provided by the sensors is used to hold a drone’s balance, enhance the heading of a home robot vacuum cleaner, change the orientation of a smartphone screen, and other motion-related applications.

Vehicle Type Outlook

By vehicle type, the automotive sensor fusion market is classified into passenger car, light commercial vehicle, and heavy commercial vehicle. The heavy commercial vehicle segment garnered a substantial revenue share in the automotive sensor fusion market in 2021. Sensor fusion does not penetrate heavy commercial vehicles. The vehicle height, longer range, and distance do, however, necessitate more cameras and radar for sensor fusion. Due to fleet managers' growing desire to transition to cutting-edge safety technology, trucks are anticipated to embrace sensor fusion technology before buses.

Propulsion Type Outlook

Based on propulsion type, the automotive sensor fusion market is divided into ICE, BEV, and HEV. The ICE segment witnessed the largest revenue share in the automotive sensor fusion market in 2021. A starter motor that will start the engine is installed in almost all cars. The starter battery feeds the alternator. The alternator, which the engine turns, recharges the battery. The electricity produced is used to power all auxiliary operations, including spark plugs, lights, and fans, as well as to recharge the starter battery. Alternator load adjustments may be possible in more sophisticated automobiles depending on the situation.
