The Global Automotive Safety System Market size hit approximately USD24.3 billion in 2013, up 6.3% from 2012; the size is expected to grow 6.8% to USD26 billion in 2014. The main driver of market growth lies in the increase in automobile output and active safety system shipment. The global market will slow down with growth rate being merely 4.1% in 2015 because of slackening growth of Chinese automobile market (the world’s largest) and falling ASP of active safety system.

In the field of automotive safety system, active safety system witnesses the highest growth, and is projected to value USD2.8 billion in 2016. Currently, automotive active safety system can be divided into three categories: radar-based system, CIS (CMOS Image Sensor)-based system and infrared sensing-based system. Radar is the most striking field. The core application of radar is adaptive cruise control (ACC) represented by the mainstream 24GHz and 79GHz millimeter-wave radar.
The mainstream millimeter-wave radar material has gradually transferred from GaAs to SiGe, and will turn to be more affordable silicon by 2015. Also, foundries will help reduce production costs, which can significantly cut down price. In addition, the expansion of the frequency bandwidth used by millimeter-wave radar is expected to exert a remarkable effect. In the worldwide scope, millimeter-wave radar adopts 76G ~ 77GHz frequency band, but the bandwidth is only “0.5G ~ 1GHz”, which cannot achieve high resolution required by pedestrian detection. However, ITU-R (International Telecommunications Union-Radio Communications Sector) may approve the worldwide...
