Active safety system market analysis report covering ACC
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and Blind Spot Detection Systems are analysed in a new market research report covering active safety system installations in vehicles.
According to the new report available from Market Publishers, trends for the installation of ACC and blind spot elimination technology during the next five years will largely be focused on premium vehicle penetration in developed countries but with steady growth also being shown in developing countries as spending power increases within these reasons.
Blind Spot Detection technology consists of sensors which detect approaching vehicles from the off-side and rear of the vehicle to warn the driver of possible collision hazards when making lane-changing or overtaking manoeuvres.
Adaptive Cruise Control is a technology that helps the driver by autonomously maintaining a safe distance from the vehicle in front by constantly adjusting speed and distance, taking into account surrounding road conditions.
Both technologies are examples of active safety systems which are becoming increasingly more in demand globally as awareness is raised in vehicular safety systems. Whilst initially only available in more expensive models within vehicle manufacturers’ ranges, the technology then becomes available in other models as options and eventually filters through to lower-priced vehicles as economies of scale kick in and the systems become more affordable and manufacturers are able to deploy them more widely.
Another factor in the speed of adoption of vehicle safety systems is Government legislation and increasingly due to the mandate of the global New Car Assessment Programmes which have “road map” plans for making sure their star rating systems move their standard requirements to reflect the availability of technology. Using this approach, as time moves on, more active safety systems will be needed in a vehicle for it to be awarded the coveted 5-stars by such vehicle testing organizations.
The report examines the history of the market since 2011 and projects it out until 2019, classifying the market size in terms of volume and value based on geography with the leading countries to adopt the technology identified. It also examines the drivers to adoption as well as detractors. A qualitative analysis is also provided of legislation issues as well as competition, containing exhaustive profiles of the top ten suppliers of the technology.
