The ADAS Market

A Look at Who’s Making What in a Dynamic New Category

  ADAS MarketAdvanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) comprise a new and fast-growing aftermarket category, with many companies already offering a variety of safety-performance innovations to meet rising consumer demand.
   

Has your business felt the impact of the rapidly increasing number of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) coming into the market? If not, it’s just a matter of time, since the OEMs are racing to add a wide range of the safety-performance technologies to their latest platforms.

Consequently, today’s automotive consumers now regularly weigh such factors as active and passive collision avoidance, lane keeping, automatic emergency braking, blind-spot detection, backup cameras and parking assistance when making their purchase decisions. And, while doing so, many are also reflecting on the lack of such functionality in their older rides—creating a major aftermarket opportunity.

“ADAS is certainly an exciting and growing market today,” said Tony Frangiosa, president and CEO of InstallerNet, parent company to American Road Products. “The safety category is projected to be one of the aftermarket’s technology growth categories.”

Founded 12 years ago, InstallerNet is dedicated to the installation of aftermarket technologies for enterprise-level businesses and the development of new aftermarket ADAS products under the American Road brand.

“I think the ADAS category and a lot of its growth and driving definition is the result of several different things happening right now, one being the OEMs talking a lot about the technologies available in the safety space when you buy a new car,” Frangiosa observed. “That exposes the technology at a very high level, and what we’re trying to do is deliver new-car technologies to vehicles that are already on the road today. Several years ago, car ads were about horsepower and performance. Today it’s about technology.”

Frangiosa isn’t alone in his assessment. SEMA Market Research estimates the current value of the ADAS aftermarket at just under $1 billion and expects that dollar value to increase at a 9%–10% compound annual growth rate through 2021, when it will reach $1.51 billion. But with that growth will come challenges, many of which are already being felt by the collision-repair industry in particular.

“The reality is that ADAS is an industry-invented category,” said Ben Johnson, director of product management for Mitchell 1, a provider of information solutions for automotive professionals. “It includes all those things that help keep vehicles safe on the nation’s highways. Blind-spot monitoring, pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control and emergency braking are just a few features that fit into that category.

ADAS MarketPresently, rearview or backup cameras and mirror displays are among the simplest and most ubiquitous aftermarket ADAS products. However, industry leaders say that rapidly advancing technologies promise more complex innovations and increasing integration with OEM systems in the near future.  
   

“Those features and the ADAS category have been evolving for more than 10 years. In fact, by 2008, considered to be the older end of the ‘aftermarket sweet spot,’ ADAS-related features were found on some mainstream as well as luxury models from 18 manufacturers. Those systems are already being attributed with having saved tens of thousands of lives through accident avoidance, and consumers generally really like them.”

The problem, said Johnson, is that the presence and positions of radar, lidar, cameras and sensors are highly variable across makes and models. Moreover, seemingly minimal adjustments to window glass, bumpers, wheels and tires and other vehicle assemblies or electronic systems can throw ADAS features out of compliance, exposing drivers and passengers to accidents—and repairers and installers to liability.

“Even unknowingly, a technician may shift a camera or radar unit out of calibration during the course of a component replacement or alignment procedure,” he noted.

Thankfully, suppliers are developing modern, up-to-date scan tools to initiate many of the calibration procedures specified by OEMs.

“In fact, a scan tool that supports ADAS and some time are all you need to calibrate many vehicles on the road today,” Johnson said.

In addition to technological barriers, the aftermarket is also facing marketing hurdles.

“The challenge for the ADAS category continues to be consumer awareness and that ADAS products are available to add to existing vehicles and not just new vehicles that come equipped from the factory,” said Joe Dentamaro, vice president for vehicle security at Voxx Electronics, which strives to continually educate its authorized dealers about the features and benefits of ADAS products.

  ADAS MarketThe tremendous potential of the ADAS aftermarket has been on full display at recent SEMA Shows, with companies like Brandmotion—an early leader in cameras, blind-spot monitoring, collision-avoidance and parking-assist systems—acquainting eager streams of buyers with the latest in these emerging technologies.
   

Like many of the larger mobile electronics manufacturers that have expanded into the ADAS category, Voxx also supports its dealers with local market awareness.

“We’ve developed new displays to help promote the category and products and have increased our advertising for the category,” Dentamaro said. “We are also a member of the Vision Zero group and continue to support organizations that promote the importance of this category
to consumers.”

The aftermarket currently specializes in passive ADAS technologies—devices that give audible, visual or tactile warnings to help drivers avoid accidents. By contrast, active systems that automatically take control of speed, direction or braking to avoid dangers remain the purview of OEMs—for now. But Shane Condon, Scosche Industries’ manager of automotive product development, expects that this too will rapidly change.

“While there are many segments of the driver-assist categories that appear to be impacted, there is still plenty of room for innovation to create new and improved solutions,” he said. “For example, backup cameras come to mind here—especially with the average vehicle on the road in the United States being 11 years old. Connected devices or driver-assist devices augmented by now-common tech in smartphones are a definite target area, especially with the anticipated emergence of 5G. As technology and electronics continue to mature and evolve, we expect to see more opportunities around OEM integration and add-ons of both passive and active ADAS systems.”

So who are the manufacturers already carving out a place in this dynamic new category? And what solutions are they bringing to specialty-equipment retailers, installers, repair professionals and, ultimately, consumers? In the following pages, SEMA News presents its first-ever safety-performance product guide, providing a glimpse of some of what’s hitting the market along with an expansive roster of who’s who among ADAS suppliers.
