Pedestrian safety is currently a major concern, as they are particularly vulnerable during accidents. According to the World Health Organization, over 270,000 pedestrians die each year as a result of road accidents worldwide. Automobile manufacturers have been pushed to employ advanced technological solutions to decrease pedestrian accidents as a result of growing worries about pedestrian accidents and severe safety criteria imposed by various government authorities. The global automotive pedestrian protection system market is expected to rise at a significant CAGR over the forecast period, owing to increased consumer awareness of the importance of installing pedestrian detection systems in their vehicles.


The market is largely driven by growing concerns about reducing pedestrian accidents, which necessitates the introduction of modern technologies such as radar sensors into autos. The radar sensors aid in the accurate detection of objects and the protection of pedestrians. This advanced technology is utilised to enable safety features like as lane departure warning, lane aids, lane change warning, and automatic emergency brake, which warns the driver ahead of time if the advance protection system predicts a collision. The radar sensor is currently installed in a few high-end vehicles. For example, the Audi A8 is equipped with two Bosch long-range radar sensors. With a beam width of 40 degrees, this sensor is capable of detecting things (approximately). In the next years, this technology will drive the market for automobile pedestrian protection systems.

However, because the sensors, including radar, are costly to install, they are now limited to luxury and premium automobiles.


The sensor component is expected to have a significant market share in the global market because to its several benefits relating to pedestrian protection, such as changing highway speeds and sophisticated night vision systems, which are particularly useful for pedestrian safety at night. The sensors warn the driver to avoid colliding with any close people. Volvo S90 and V90 vehicles, for example, have automatic emergency brakes, which are very useful for pedestrian safety. The Euro New Car Assessment Program has given these models a five-star grade.


The market has been divided into active and passive systems based on the technology type. Because of its increasing technology penetration in autos, the passive system segment is predicted to have a leading share during the forecast period. The passive pedestrian safety system incorporates advanced technology such as automatic emergency braking systems, airbags, and seatbelts. According to the Indian Ministry of Road Transport and Highways' rules, airbags have been required in all new car models since October 2017, along with frontal and side crash tests, to improve pedestrian safety in the country. Furthermore, beginning in 2019, passenger cars in India must be equipped with anti-lock braking systems in accordance with these regulations. The government's strict regulations would foster the development of new technologies.


North America is predicted to dominate the worldwide automobile pedestrian system market, owing to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration's aggressive policies, particularly in the United States. These policies encourage automakers to include advanced safety technologies like lane assist and traffic jam help in their vehicles. Furthermore, the growth in distracted driving-related incidents in the United States is a source of concern for pedestrian safety. As a result, over the forecasted period, the adoption of safety systems will increase.

Europe is predicted to be the fastest-growing area in the automotive pedestrian protection market, owing to increased adoption of advanced safety systems by automakers such as Mercedes-Benz, Volvo, Volkswagen, and others. The enhanced safety criteria established down by the Euro New Car Assessment Programs, particularly the adoption of an emergency braking system for passenger and pedestrian safety, are largely responsible for the adoption of safety systems.


Continental AG, Robert Bosch, TRW Automotive, NXP Semiconductor, Autoliv Inc., Tesla, Honda Motor Co., Volvo, Denso Corporation, Hitachi Automotive, and Delphi Automotive Inc., others are among the leading competitors in the worldwide automotive pedestrian protection system market.

Bosch invested roughly US$ 48.1 million in a new R&D centre in Suzhou in 2018. The research and development of active and passive safety technology, improved sensors, advanced driver support systems, and other technologies will be the focus of this centre.
