Gary Kilby of Sherwin-Williams said "radar variants" of colors can’t be tinted for color match or they may no longer be “radar approved.”

Dominato said the percentage of vehicles on the road with a forward-facing ADAS camera will climb sharply in the coming years. While 89% of all 2023 model year vehicles include such a camera, only about 25% of the total population of vehicles on the road do.

“By 2026, we’re going to see a 50% increase,” Dominato said. “We’re going to go from a quarter of the vehicles on the road to about 4 in 10. By 2030, we’re going to see another 50% increase. So we’re going to go from 25% to 40% to 60% of vehicles on the road with at least one ADAS system.”
