European Rear Autonomous Emergency Braking (R-AEB) Market 2020-2030 by Overall R-AEB Penetration, OEM Group, and Vehicle Segment

European Rear Autonomous Emergency Braking (R-AEB) Market 2020-2030 by Overall R-AEB Penetration, OEM Group, and Vehicle Segment

Dublin, Feb. 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The “European Rear Autonomous Emergency Braking (R-AEB) Market, Forecasts to 2030” report has been added to’s offering.

“European Rear Autonomous Emergency Braking (R-AEB) Market, Forecast to 2030” is to research, analyse, forecast, and provide an overview of the R-AEB trends in Europe and discuss the impact of these trends on the growth and deployment strategies of different OEMs and suppliers in the market. The study analyses various aspects of the market, such as regulations for R-AEB, types of R-AEB systems, market trends and forecasts, and industry growth opportunities.

R-AEB penetration in Europe as of 2019 stood at a meager 7% of the vehicles sold. The solution is expected to penetrate roughly 35.6% of the vehicles by 2030, with the market for it expanding at a CAGR of 23.3% primarily driven by regulatory mandates.

According to accident research conducted by the German Insurance Association up to 17% of collisions involving pedestrians and vehicles, leading to personal injury, occur at the rear side of the car. 70% of the accident victims were elderly or children below the age of 12 and an estimated 1,400 people are seriously injured in such incidences across Europe annually. Another such research conducted by Thatcham Research suggests that 1 in 6 pedestrian collisions are while reversing, typically injuring elderly and children, with the driver rarely braking.

These are some horrifying numbers especially considering the fact that vehicle speeds during reversing are less than 10 kilometres per hour (kph). Owing to the seriousness of the issue, the European New Car Assessment Program (EuroNCAP) has proposed that rear autonomous emergency braking (R-AEB) be introduced in vehicles starting 2020 as test criteria under the Vulnerable Road User (VRU) category.

This marks a shift in focus from the safety of VRUs in front of the vehicle to the safety of all VRUs around the vehicle. The proliferation of this particular function is a necessary building block for the industry to champion the safety of VRUs for the impetus to shift from driver assistance function to fully autonomous vehicles.

Level 4 autonomous parking function, which parks the vehicle by itself without human intervention, is expected to account for roughly 86% of the market by 2030. Systems offering these capabilities are expected to hit the market as soon as 2021 in the premium vehicle segment.
