The global commercial vehicle pedestrian protection system market to grow at a CAGR of 7.36% during the period 2017-2021.
This report, Global Commercial Vehicle Pedestrian Protection System Market 2017-2021, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
One trend in the market is ray-tracing simulation is expected to replace drive testing of automotive radar sensor-based PPS systems. Systems that consist of regions of varying opagation velocity, absorption characteristics, and reflecting surfaces are a reality and modern radar waves need to pass through such media to be effective.
According to the report, one driver in the market is PPS growth to be driven by the rising incidents of pedestrian injuries and deaths. The most frequent pedestrian injuries involve the lower or upper leg following an impact with a vehicle. If it is a low velocity accident, the injuries are largely restricted to the areas below the torso, where maximum injuries follow the impact with the ground or surrounding obstacles. If it is a high velocity accident, there are high chances of a secondary impact (often causing head injury) with the upper bonnet, windscreen, or windscreen surround.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is PPS may emerge as a reason behind driver inattentiveness, negating the benefits of such systems. Since the invention of automobiles, road accidents have been a common phenomenon. According to many studies, cell phones have topped the list of causes of distraction for drivers. But over the last few years, ADAS that are designed and developed for enhancing the vehicle safety and to assist the driver while driving have become a cause of concern.
