Adas System promotes market scale of nearly 6 billion yuan
Adas camera technology provides power for the growth of car camera market scale
As the main window for smart cars to obtain external information, the development of car camera largely determines the development process of ADAS system. In recent years, ADAS technology has brought changes in the automotive industry, and also provided power for the growth of car camera market scale.
1. Single Sensor is the main application of ADAS
According to the installation location, car camera can be divided into front, rear, look around, built-in and side view, etc. in terms of function, in order to meet the needs of ADAS technology, car camera has spawned many types of cameras, such as monocular, multi-directional, wide-angle, night vision and so on. Because binocular cameras need high computing power chip support, and the cost is relatively high, which is about 50% higher than monocular cameras. The popularity of binocular cameras will take some time. Therefore, monocular cameras are the mainstream vehicle cameras.
2. Image sensor is the core technology of vehicle camera
In the car camera, image sensor is the core technology, and its cost accounts for 50%. The common image sensors can be divided into CCD and CMOS, and CMOS is the mainstream car sensor at present.
3. The rapid growth of ADAS supporting demand supports the increase of vehicle camera demand
In recent years, the application of artificial intelligence in the field of automobile research continues to deepen, intelligent driving technology is gradually mature, ADAS as a prelude to driverless, with the application of intelligent driving technology accelerated penetration.
According to the China Association of automobile industry, it is estimated that in 2020, the assembly rate of new cars will exceed 50% for vehicle driving assistance, partial automatic driving and conditional automatic driving, and the assembly rate of networked driving assistance system will reach 10%, meeting the needs of smart transportation city construction, and the total penetration rate of ADAS system will reach 50%.
With the increase of advanced automatic driving assistance function, the value of ADAS system is expected to increase. According to the calculation of China Automobile Association, the market scale of China’s ADAS industry in 2018 is about 57.6 billion yuan, and the growth rate is expected to reach 25% and 22% in 2019 and 2020, with the market scale of 72 billion yuan and 87.8 billion yuan respectively.
Driven by the rapid development of the ADAS system market, the shipment of car cameras continues to rise, and the demand for car cameras in China continues to grow. According to the data of GAC Automotive Research Institute, from 2015 to 2020, China’s car camera shipment shows an increasing trend year by year. Among them, in 2018, the domestic vehicle camera shipment volume is about 26 million, and it is expected to exceed 44 million by 2020.
