An automotive backup camera, also known as a rear-view camera, refers to a video camera attached to the rear of a vehicle. It is specifically designed to prevent a backup collision and assist the driver in reversing the vehicle safely. It is connected to a display screen that turns on automatically when the car is shifted into the reverse gear and shows real-time video of the area behind the vehicle. In recent years, automotive backup camera systems have gained traction as they provide better visibility and prevent crashes and accidents by alleviating the rear blind spots. Nowadays, manufacturers are offering automotive backup camera systems with sensors in the rear bumper to detect objects behind the vehicle.
Automotive Backup Camera Market Trends
The increasing number of fatalities during the reversing of vehicles and the rising concerns regarding the safety of passengers and pedestrians represent the primary factors driving the market growth. Besides this, the emerging applications of automotive backup camera systems in commercial vehicles, such as tow trucks and trailers, that cover a larger area on the road and require assistance while parking or reversing are catalyzing the product demand.
Additionally, governments of various countries are introducing stringent regulations mandating the installation of backup cameras in all new passenger vehicles to reduce the risk to pedestrians from accidents while reversing vehicles. This, in confluence with the escalating demand for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), is propelling the market growth.
