Sensor Fusion Market Trends

  • Increasing sales of autonomous vehicles to boost the market growth

Cameras, radar, and LiDAR sensors are necessary for autonomous cars to monitor and assess their surroundings. They frequently require several data inputs from various sources to give the vehicle a comprehensive and unified image of its surroundings in real time within milliseconds. They also need computer capacity and artificial intelligence to assess multidimensional impediments. Sensor fusion is necessary for autonomous cars to satisfy all of these requirements. Throughout the forecast period, creating supporting regulatory frameworks, government financing, and investments in digital infrastructure are anticipated to impact market growth significantly. Sales of autonomous vehicles increased even during the pandemic; in 2020, 11.2 million vehicles with Level 2 characteristics were sold, a 78% increase from the previous year. Therefore, increased sales of autonomous cars are driving the growth of the sensor fusion market revenue.

Due to its numerous technical advantages, sensor fusion is becoming increasingly common in automobiles. According to Aptiv, sensor fusion uses software algorithms to combine data from numerous sensors to produce the most complete and accurate environmental model. Increased data exchange is a key advantage of sensor fusion. The total data produced worldwide was predicted to be over 79 zettabytes in 2021. Because sensors in conventional systems each process inputs independently, the system's decisions are only as good as what each sensor can observe. Nevertheless, with sensor fusion, data from many sensors, including cameras, LiDAR, and radar, are combined. Sharing multiple pieces of data helps decision-makers make wiser choices, improving vehicle safety. Thus the continuous technological advancement in sensor fusion has enhanced the sensor fusion market CAGR globally in recent years.
