Market Overview

Radar sensors convert microwave echo signals from microwaves to electrical impulses. By determining the object's location, form, motion characteristics, and motion trajectory, they use wireless sensor technologies to detect motion. Radar sensors are capable of sustaining operation in severe weather conditions such as rain, snow, fog, dust, and so on. Radar sensors are used in forecasting the weather, traffic monitoring, and onboard vehicle systems. They have recently been used in wearable devices, smart buildings, and self-driving cars. Also, radar sensors are embedded with GPS technology which enables the storage of locations precipitated by the sensor when the subscriber arrives at one intended location. Additionally, the use of corner radar for 360-degree surveillance of the vehicle, aided by 24 GHz short to mid-range radars, is gaining traction for high-resolution tracking.

Restraining Factors

Some of the challenges impeding the growth of the radar sensor market include radar sensors' inability to detect smaller objects and their inability to measure the distance between objects quickly and precisely. Additionally, the radar sensor market growth is hampered by high initial and development costs. It can be obtained separately and misused by a person, resulting in accidents and casualties. As a result, it is illegal in several countries, and violating this could result in fines, confiscation of the device, or both. Many radar detector applications are prohibited.


Market Segmentation

  • In 2021, the continuous wave radar segment is witnessing a higher growth rate over the forecast period.


Based on type, the global radar sensor market is segmented into continuous wave radar, pulse radar, speed gauge, and radar altimeter. Among these, the continuous wave radar segment is witnessing a higher growth rate over the forecast period. Continuous wave radar is increasingly being used in proximity sensor systems and sports equipment that could function at great distances. Considering their simplicity, continuous wave radar sensor are completely automated, reasonably priced, and virtually failure-free. They are also inexpensive to maintain. Some are small enough to fit in a pocket and be transported in that manner.


  • In 2021, The Long-range radar sensor segment is witnessing significant CAGR growth over the forecast period.

On the basis of range, the global radar sensor market is segmented into short-range radar sensors, medium-range radar sensors, and long-range radar sensors. Among these, the long-range radar sensor segment is witnessing significant CAGR growth over the forecast period. Vehicles must constantly be able to recognize objects and people to respond to driver assistance systems. The high detection range, large field of view, exceptional angle separability, and novel chirp-sequence modulation function of the long-ranged radar sensor enable quick, accurate, and dependable object recognition and tracking. As a result, it is perfectly suited to difficult traffic situations.


  • In 2021, Traffic monitoring is witnessing significant growth over the forecast period.


Based on applications, the global radar Sensor market is segmented into advanced driver assistance systems, monitoring & communication, security & surveillance, traffic monitoring, environment, weather monitoring, hump yard and rail crossing, and others. Among these, traffic monitoring is witnessing significant growth over the forecast period, owing to many different traffic monitoring situations to give vehicle speeds and counts. It can also be used to give estimates of vehicle length which can be used in classifying traffic flow by vehicle type. Furthermore, new radar sensor technology is paving the way for innovative transportation and traffic management concepts for smart cities.


  • In 2021, The Automotive segment is dominating the market with the largest market share of 40% over the forecast period.


Based on verticals, the global radar Sensor market is segmented into continuous automotive, aerospace & defence, industrial, government & public infrastructure, healthcare, oil and gas, manufacturing, maritime, and others. Among these, the automotive segment dominates the market with the largest market share of 40% over the forecast period. In automotive, radar sensors are used to determine the distance and speed of objects that are close to the vehicle. Automobile radar consists of a transmitter and a receiver; the receiver can determine the distance, speed, and direction of an object by receiving radio waves reflected off of it. Short-range radars in automobiles are used for short-range applications such as blind-spot detection, parking aid or obstacle detection, and collision avoidance.
