The pedestrian detection system market is expected to record a CAGR of over 15%, during the forecast period, 2020 - 2025.
The pedestrian detection system is an important component of the driver assistance system, which is developed with the intention of avoiding collisions between vehicles and pedestrians, especially while driving during night time. The night-time pedestrian detection systems work by letting the driver of the vehicle know about the obstacles on the road, with the help of a near-infrared (NIR) camera and its displaying unit.
Some of the major factors driving the growth of the market studied are the growing emphasis on the safety of passengers and pedestrians, owing to a rise in the number of accidents, and the increasing demand for premium vehicles. However, factors, such as difficulty in detecting pedestrians during bad weather conditions, may hinder the growth of the market studied.
In recent years, the automobile industry has motivated its R&D work for improving the night vision systems. This has led to further improvements in advanced driving assistance systems, with the surge in demand for night-time pedestrian detection systems. Low penetration of leading providers of advanced driving assistance systems (ADASs) in the emerging markets and the rise in the number of autonomous cars are reasons for the opportunities present in the market studied.
Increase in the Number of Road Fatalities
Rise in the number of accidents, resulting in loss of lives and properties across the world, is being considered as one of the major factors driving the demand for, and development of, advanced automobile safety systems. As consumers are gaining awareness about the advanced safety features and technologies, they are indicating interest in improving the safety systems of their vehicles.
As per the WHO, more than half of all road traffic deaths are among vulnerable road users, such as pedestrians, cyclists, and motorcyclists. Deaths of pedestrians and cyclists accounted for 26% of all deaths, while that of those using motorized two- and three-wheelers accounted for 28%.
Thus, the number of pedestrians hit and killed has been continually increasing. For instance -
Regions, such as Europe and North America, are developed, and with the increase in the number of vehicle sales, more customers are opting for trending ADAS features in their vehicles, owing to the need for safety and comfort features.
Initially, the majority of the consumers did not adopt these systems, due to the high cost and lack of awareness. However, with the new government regulations in place and the proven safety benefits, these systems have gained consumer interest. The ongoing installations are being done by both OEMs and aftermarkets, to facilitate end users with ADAS features.
Europe is Expected to Witness High Adoption Rate
In 2017, 21% of all people killed on roads were pedestrians. In general, pedestrian fatalities have decreased at a lower rate than for other road users (by 15% from 2010 to 2017, compared to a total fatality decrease of 20%).
The European Commission has made it mandatory for all new cars to be equipped with safety equipment by 2021. The commission wants to fit all the 11 various ADAS features designed to prevent or mitigate accidents. The European Union anticipates that the addition of these 11 ADAS safety features may not only save over 7,000 lives across Europe, but may also prevent 38,000 serious injuries between 2020 and 2030.
The vehicle safety measures that have direct relevance to the cyclists' and pedestrians' safety include Intelligent Speed Assistance, Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) for car to pedestrian/cyclist, and HGV/truck 'VRU detection' assist, which may warn the driver if a pedestrian or cyclist is in the blind spot of a large vehicle (in review of the General Safety Regulation and the Pedestrian Safety Regulation, under the Third "Europe on the Move" set of actions).
In Europe, Germany is expected to be one of the major markets. With the growing focus toward both passengers' safety and pedestrians' and cyclists' safety, the demand for advanced driver's safety assistance systems of collision warning systems has been continually increasing.
Irrespective of the decline in the number of pedestrian deaths, the country has been striving to further reduce pedestrian and cyclist fatalities, and the announcement of the revision of the General Safety Regulations may further aid in reducing the fatalities.
The market is majorly concentrated, with few players dominating the market. However, there are some auto manufacturers, such as BMW and Toyota Motor Corporation, who are supplying their own manufactured pedestrian detection system.
Some of the major players in the pedestrian detection system are Continental Reifen Deutschland GmbH, Mobileye, Robert Bosch GmbH, FLIR Systems, Inc., and DENSO Corporation among others.
