ADAS Calibration Equipment Market

2019 Analysis and Review of ADAS Calibration Equipment Market by Vehicle - Passenger Vehicles and Commercial Vehicles for 2019 - 2029

Introduction

The global demand for ADAS (advanced driver assistance systems), has been rising with increased adoption from major automobile manufacturers, for steering, monitoring, braking and warning applications.

As innovations in the auto industry towards autonomous driving continue to pick up pace with AI and IoT, accuracy in operations of ADAS systems have been gaining priority, thereby bolstering the demand for ADAS calibration equipment in the near future.

According to a new report published by Future Market Insights, the ADAS calibration equipment market is estimated to reflect highly impressive growth with 11.4% CAGR, thereby reaching a valuation of US$ 628 million by the end of the assessment period in 2030, with application for passenger cars holding on to major market share.

The ADAS calibration market has witnessed substantial gains in the recent past owing to increasingly strict regulations by governments around the world towards road safety, in addition to innovations in the industry for static and dynamic calibration processes.

Dynamic ADAS Calibration Gains Attention

The global demand for ADAS calibration services in the automotive OEM and aftermarket sectors is expected to continue rising throughout the decade, supported by the increasing interest towards active and passive technologies for driver and passenger safety in new vehicle offerings.

Some of the more prominent technologies that require accurate calibration include adaptive control, ABS, lane departure warning, and autonomous braking. ADAS calibration is also critical for collision repair processes in the aftermarket

While static calibration systems have been the standard for OEMS and service stations, these systems are limited in terms of vehicle types are compatible with each system.

On the other hand, dynamic ADAS calibration, otherwise known as mobile calibration is conducted with handheld units, which when plugged to the vehicle can utilize cameras and sensors for a wider parameter range of calibration operations, to ensure that safety features meet performance requirements. This will drive market demand strongly in the near future, as ADAS technologies are introduced frequently in the auto sector.

Camera-Based Systems Influence Market Developments

Some of the key challenges restricting the adoption of ADAS systems, is limited functionality, and high costs. Consequently, ADAS system developers are rapidly investing in camera-based systems, with tech improvements towards bolstering efficacy of detection to that of lidar and radar.

The development of such functionality is expected to result in the domination of the ADAS cameras market, in combination with laser detection tools in the ADAS industry, owing to lower costs, which will further aid the development of partially autonomous driving. These factors are projected to have a major impact on the development of ADAS calibration equipment for the foreseeable future.

Strict Road Safety Regulations Bolster Adoption

While regulations on automotive technologies are slow to be legislated, recent efforts have been fruitful in bolstering the prospects of adoption for ADAS systems and associated calibration equipment.

For instance, the European Parliament has now mandated that all new cars to be introduced in the EU market in from 2022, would have to be integrated with advanced safety systems including ADAS features.

These include speed assistance, tyre pressure monitoring, alcohol interlock, data recorders, drowsiness warning systems, emergency stop, and driver distraction warnings among others, which will bolster the rise of the ADAS sensors market.

Similar legislation is also being considered in North American markets, which will drive the adoption of ADAS systems, and the requirements for adequate ADAS calibration equipment for the foreseeable future.

Key Challenges

ADAS systems are rapidly becoming mainstream in the automotive sector and is expected to continue gaining ground in the years ahead, with the development and introduction of cutting-edge technologies. On the other hand, the ADAS calibration equipment industry is expected to face challenges during the forecast period.

A prominent issue is that a number of key ADAS technologies are not yet refined enough to be used officially in the automotive industry. Also, ADAS systems continue to be cost prohibitive and are largely found in premium vehicles. Furthermore, a significant portion of vehicle owners and potential buyers are unaware about ADAS systems. All of these factors are estimated to hamper the adoption of calibration kits in the years ahead.

Region-wise Insights

Europe ADAS Calibration Equipment Market

Europe is projected to be the largest market for ADAS calibration systems. According to the European Commission, ADAS systems involving electronic stability control, lane keeping assist, lane departure warning, autonomous emergency braking, and pedestrian protection are standardized under safety ratings, which is a key factor bolstering the scope of the ADAS market, and in turn, the ADAS calibration market within Europe.

Also, the investments by automotive manufacturers towards the production of electric vehicles and favorable policies being applied by governments in the region are driving demand. As OEMs move towards autonomous driving, and consumers display greater demand for premium vehicles, the demand for ADAS and calibration systems will rise for the foreseeable future.

Furthermore, key European vehicle brands including Mercedes, Volkswagen, and Volvo have already taken steps to integrate ADAS as a standard part of their offerings. United Kingdom followed by Germany are also major spenders on interconnected cars, providing lucrative opportunities for ADAS calibration equipment manufacturers for years to come.
