Chinese ADAS and Autonomous Driving Tier 1 Suppliers Report 2021-2022: Emerging Tier 1 Companies Trending Their Industry Chain Role, Partnering with OEMs to Jointly Build Cars

DUBLIN, June 24, 2022 -- The "Chinese ADAS and Autonomous Driving Tier 1 Suppliers Report, 2021-2022" report has been added to's offering.

Companies Mentioned

  • Jingwei Hirain
  • Desay SV
  • Neusoft Reach
  • Huawei
  • Baidu
  • Alibaba
  • Tencent

In 2022 Q1, the installation rate of L2 and above autonomous driving functions in Chinese passenger cars reached 30.1%, a year-on-year increase of 12.7 percentage points. Specifically, the L2 installation rate went up by 10 percentage points to 25.7%; the L2.5 installation rate rose by 1.6 percentage points to 3.43%; the L2.9 installation rate edged up by 0.95 percentage points to 0.96%.

The boom in ADAS favored a surge in Tier 1 suppliers' revenue from autonomous driving products.
In 2021, Desay SV's revenue from intelligent driving products hit RMB1.39 billion, a year-on-year spike of 95.8%. Desay SV entering the field of autonomous driving in 2016 primarily produces cameras, radars and domain controllers. In the future, it will still focus on perception fusion algorithms and control strategy, and will make further deployments in L3 and L4 autonomous driving solutions. Its domain controller IPU03 was mass-produced for Xpeng P7 in April 2020; the domain controller IPU04 launched in September 2021 is scheduled to be used by Li Auto in 2022; the intelligent computing platform (ICP) `Aurora` became available on market in April 2022.

Neusoft Reach started deploying autonomous driving in 2004. The company works on R&D and commercialization of autonomous driving core technologies, covering autonomous driving systems such as visual perception, embedded high-performance computing, sensor fusion, decision and planning, and vehicle control.

Neusoft Reach provides technologies and solutions for passenger car/commercial vehicle products. Its autonomous driving products include front view smart cameras, driver monitoring systems, domain controllers, and central computing platforms. Its self-developed automotive basic software platform NeuSAR enables effective decoupling of software and hardware. The encapsulation of end-cloud cooperation middleware services helps to connect vehicle-cloud cooperation value data communication links and mobilize cloud platform services to enable the continuous intelligent driving iterations and updates at the vehicle end.

Jingwei Hirain's revenue from intelligent driving electronics sustained AAGRs of over 100% in recent three years. Jingwei Hirain has begun to deploy autonomous driving in 2015, and established its intelligent driving division in 2017. Its products are led by cameras, radars, domain controllers, computing platforms and chassis-by-wire. 

Both conventional Tier 1 suppliers and emerging Tier 1 Internet firms are deploying decision layer products
Decision layer products are the bridge between the perception layer and the execution layer. As the core products of high-level autonomous driving, they are responsible for computing, judgment, and decision. At present, Jingwei Hirain, Desay SV, Neusoft Reach, Huawei, and Baidu all have launched their own domain controllers and computing platforms.

Huawei set up the `Internet of Vehicles Division` in 2013. It dabbles in the field of smart cars by starting with the automotive communication module ME909T. Huawei has started developing autonomous driving communication architecture since 2015, and has rolled out the autonomous driving AI chip `Ascend`, the Ascend-based intelligent driving computing platform MDC, the intelligent driving cloud service "Octopus", the intelligent driving operating system AOS, LiDAR, 4D imaging radar, etc.

The Institute of Deep Learning Baidu founded in July 2013 has launched an autonomous vehicle project and developed the Apollo autonomous driving open platform. It has introduced autonomous driving service products such as autonomous driving cloud service, simulation service, HD map. In 2021, its products were extended to autonomous driving solutions and decision products. In April 2021, its AVP solution and the corresponding computing platform were first mounted on Weltmeister W6.

Emerging Tier 1 companies are eagerly converting their role in the industry chain.
Emerging Tier 1 companies (Baidu, Alibaba, etc.) have made a foray into the automotive field with their superior software technology and data platforms. They are accelerating the development of software-defined vehicles and shortening the development cycle of new automotive products. Meanwhile, they have realized that the Tier 1 market is limited and they need to vigorously change their role in the industry chain into a partner of conventional OEMs to jointly build cars. For example, Alibaba and SAIC together established IM Motors in 2020; Baidu and Geely co-funded Jidu Automobile in 2021.
