and China Automotive Millimeter Wave (MMW) Radar Industry Report,
report has been added to Research and

In comparison with lidar, MMW (millimeter wave) radar has more mature
technology, wider application and lower costs; its accuracy and
stability are also better than camera, and price gap between them is
narrowing. Accordingly, it has a big room to grow in ADAS and automated
driving fields.

In 2016, global shipments of MMW radar surged by 27.5% to 31.5 million
units from a year ago, and the figure is projected to climb to 84
million units in 2021, with an AAGR of 21.7%. As major countries pose
higher requirements on use of ADAS functions in their new car assessment
program (NCAP), ADAS penetration will rise rapidly, directly driving
demand for MMW radar. It is predicted that global MMW radar market size
will hit nearly USD6 billion in 2021.

In 2016, China saw pre-installation of MMW radar reach 1.05 million
sets, of which 24GHz radars accounted for 63.8%, and 77GHz 36.2%. 24GHz
radar is now mainly applied in blind spot detection (BSD), and market
demand for it will be Chinese brand models with little installation of
BSD; 77GHz radar finds application in adaptive cruise control system
(ACC), and some companies also use it in forward collision warning (FCW)
and automatic emergency braking (AEB). According to C-NCAP (China-New
Car Assessment Program), AEBS will be included in bonus-point system in
2018, in favor of larger demand for 77GHz radars. Additionally, 77GHz
radar with smaller size and longer detection range, will squeeze market
space of 24GHz radar in the future.

From competition pattern, global MMW radar market is carved up by Bosch,
Continental, TRW, Valeo, Hella, Delphi, Denso, Autoliv and Fujitsu Ten,
and Chinese market looks like a miniature of global competition. In
China, the 24GHz radar market is dominated by Valeo, Hella and Bosch,
with a joint share of above 60% in total shipments; the 77GHz radar
market is seized by Continental, Bosch and Delphi, together sweeping
roughly 80% of total shipments.

Chinese MMW radar companies have made breakthroughs, and Sensortech,
IntiBeam and HUAYU Automotive Systems have realized small-volume
production, of which HUAYU plans mass production of some 24GHz products
in 2017. Sensortech, Cheng-Tech, Nanoradar, HawkEye, Autoroad, Anzhi
Automotive Parts and HUAYU have carried out 77GHz prototype test, and
some of them are expected to realize mass production during 2019-2020.
Nevertheless, besides price, OEMs also stress such technical parameters
of products as stability and select suppliers with discretion. Hence,
Chinese companies still have a long way to go.
