According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Traffic Sensor Market is accounted for $566.00 million in 2021 and is expected to reach $1,061.54 million by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 9.4% during the forecast period. Traffic sensors are made up of a magnetic device that detects and indicates the levels of traffic present on the road. It monitors the patterns of vehicles and their movements. It is a smart way of controlling traffic. Advanced devices, such as infrared radar, laser technique, and video detection are used to control the mobility of traffic. It evenly distributed the traffic and provides hassle-free movement on the roads. Traffic sensors can be used in areas where traffic management is difficult during peak hours. These sensors also work efficiently in the areas of intersections and bottleneck lanes.

Market Dynamics:


Rapid urbanization and rising emphasis on road safety norms

The proportion of the urban population is increasing every day, causing traffic congestion. The increasing urbanization and population have been escalating the traffic density levels, making commuting tough for the common masses. Moreover, as the urban population grows so will the volume of business within cities and with business partners outside of cities. A higher urban population tends to increase the volume of transportation as the business grows. For example, as cities' populations grow, so will traffic as businesses such as e-commerce, postal & logistics, and restaurant aggregator & food delivery companies expand their operations.


High cost for the installation of nonintrusive sensors

The installation and maintenance of nonintrusive sensors, such as image sensors, microwave sensors, and acoustic sensors, do not have a major impact on road traffic and are associated with severe safety concerns. Furthermore, the cost of non-intrusive sensors is high compared to leading in road technologies such as inductive loops that provide detailed traffic flow data measurements. High costs impede widespread distribution and limit the application of non-intrusive sensors in gathering traffic information. 


Raising the need for transportation and personal conveyance

As the population is increasing rapidly, it is, in turn, raising the need for transportation and personal conveyance. As the traffic is increasing on the roads, the government is improving the infrastructure facilities. This becomes an opportunity for the traffic sensor market. In developing countries, such as India, the demand for traffic sensors is increasing rapidly because of increased investment in infrastructural development.


High initial investment

The investment required for setting up an efficient traffic sensor system is difficult. The maintenance cost is also very high as the well-trained and equipped staffs are required to handle the operations. It becomes one of the threats in the traffic sensor industry and its growth.

The 2d sensor segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

Despite the numerous benefits of 3D sensor technology for quality traffic monitoring applications, many traffic control authorities continue to rely solely on the 2D sensor for quality control processes. While useful in a limited number of scenarios, a 2D sensor is limited in its ability to achieve full quality control, which is considered a major concern, especially in the case of multilane and heavy urban traffic congestions, where near to fully quality control is a major preference.

The radar sensors segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The radar sensors segment is growing at the highest CAGR in the market. Radar sensors utilize frequency modulated continuous wave radar to identify moving and stationary objects, including cars, trucks, trains, buses, and cargo, in extreme conditions. Radar-based sensors are ideal for collision avoidance on-board mobile equipment, such as reach stackers, forklifts, and mining vehicles, or port machineries, such as carriers, handlers, and shippers.

Region with largest share:

North America is projected to hold the largest market share due to the growing traffic problems day by day due to the increase in vehicles. This owns to high infrastructural development and urbanization. The increase in the level of traffic is increasing the need for management of traffic in all the cities.

Region with highest CAGR:

The Asia Pacific is projected to have the highest CAGR due to the growing number of megacities and increasing population in developed and developing countries. As there are many developing nations in these regions, there is a large scope for the rising growth of the traffic sensors market. Many environmentally friendly campaigns are being run in the APAC region.
