The global automatic emergency braking market generated 8,870 thousand units in 2017 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 25.2% during the forecast period. Automatic emergency braking (AEB) alerts a driver regarding a crash and enables them to use the maximum braking capacity of the vehicle. In case the driver’s response is not sufficient to avoid the crash, the AEB system may automatically apply the brakes to assist in preventing or reducing the severity of a crash. AEB uses sensors for tracking of cars ahead and automatically applies brakes in an impending crash. The different types of AEB include low speed AEB system, high speed AEB system, and pedestrian AEB system. The low speed AEB systems are developed for detection of vehicles on city streets for prevention of crashes. The higher speed AEB system uses a long range radar to scan up to 200 meters for detection of vehicles at higher speeds, while the pedestrian system is responsible for detecting pedestrian movement in relation to the path of the vehicle for determination of risk of collision
The significant growth in the global automotive industry, along with government mandates for increased vehicular safety drives the growth of the Automatic Emergency Braking market. The increase in consumer purchasing power owing to growing disposable incomes and improving living standards has increased the demand for luxury passenger vehicles worldwide, thereby increasing the adoption of automatic emergency braking systems. Several safety regulations have been introduced by governments to improve road safety and reduce road accidents, thereby increasing the implementation of AEB systems. The implementation of advanced technologies for automatic emergency braking, and increasing modernization of vehicles has accelerated the adoption of AEB systems. The increasing development of autonomous and semi-autonomous vehicles, rising consumer awareness regarding safety, and NCAP regulatory scenario further accelerate the adoption of AEB systems. However, high costs associated with AEB systems hamper the market growth. The technological advancements, stringent regulatory framework regarding vehicular and road safety, and rising demand from emerging economies would provide numerous growth opportunities during the forecast period.
