In the second quarter 2023, Acconeer's net sales amounted to kSEK 6,399. Close to 15,000 modules and 67,000 sensors were sold. In total, Acconeer has sold 1,656,662 radar sensors and 149,678 modules since launch. In the quarter as much as 425 evaluation kits were sold, and an accumulated 6,669 EVKs have been sold since launch. The gross margin in Q2 was 61% and eight new customer products were launched.
CEO Lars Lindell comments: “We are of course disappointed by the weak sales, but seeing strong sales of EVKs and high customer activity we are convinced that the weak sales are due to the general temporary industry downturn. Besides this, the most important event during Q2 was the new regulations for the US market, which will open up for new and existing customers to expand their business in North America.”
