Dynamics of Automotive Sensors Market

The ongoing technological advancement in the automotive sensors as well as in the automotive industry is a major trend being witnessed in the automotive sensors market. For instance, the introduction of different advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) sensors, such as radar, light detection and ranging (LiDAR), camera, and ultrasonic sensor, is a result of massive technological innovations. Furthermore, in the recent years, the concept of sensor fusion has gained much popularity in the automobiles. For instance, however all radar, LiDAR, ultrasonic, and other sensors have their own limitations, when combined altogether, these improve ADAS functions like cross-traffic assistance and obstacle avoidance.

The prevalent laws regarding emission standards and mandatory vehicle safety requirements, in different countries across the world, increase the requirement for deployment of highly advanced automotive sensors in the vehicles, which drives the growth of the automotive sensors market. For instance, Europe has mandated several driving-assistance features to be implemented in the vehicles like advanced emergency braking, emergency stop signal, tire pressure monitoring system, lane keeping assist system, reversing camera or detection system, intelligent speed assistance system, and drowsiness and attention detection system. Thus, the increasing government regulations safety requirement is propelling the demand for automotive sensors and act as a major driver for the market.

Automotive Sensors Market

Development of advanced sensors with huge investments is creating growth opportunities for the players in the automotive sensors market. Many existing automotive giants and major global investors are increasingly showing interest in the development of different advanced sensors boost their adoption. For instance, in December 2019, Volkswagen AG’s subsidiary Porsche Automobil Holding SE invested an undisclosed amount in a LiDAR startup company, Aeva Inc. Moreover, in July 2019, Luminar Technologies Inc. received an investment of $100 million, led by G2VP LLC, Moore Strategic Ventures LLC, and The Westly Group, making the company’s total funding to surpass $250 million, till date.

Automotive Sensors Market Segmentation Analysis

The position sensor category led the automotive sensors market, on the basis of type, during the historical period. This is owing to their widespread application in different vehicle parts, like brakes, clutch, engine, transmission, and chassis, in order to determine steering wheel position, motor rotor position, gear position, throttle position, pedal positions, seat positions, and the position of various knobs, valves, and actuators.

The fastest growth in the automotive sensors market is expected to be witnessed in the ADAS sensors application category during the forecast period. This can be due to the fact that in different countries across the world, specific ADAS features have been made mandatory to incorporate in the vehicles produced.

The micro-electromechanical system (MEMS) category is expected to grow at a faster rate during the forecast period, in terms of technology, in the automotive sensors market. The growing popularity of MEMS sensor is mainly attributed to its better tolerance for thermal development along with its less power consumption level.

The automotive sensors market on the basis of vehicle type witnessed the largest demand in the passenger car category in 2019. This is attributed to the fact that most of the technological developments in the automotive industry, in terms of electrification and autonomous driving, are being implemented in the passenger cars, which is creating higher need for sensor usage in these vehicles.

The demand for the sensors by the original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) was higher in 2019 in the automotive sensors market. This is owing to the fact that most of the sensors which are present in a vehicle are installed during vehicle manufacturing, as these are crucial for the functioning of the vehicles.
