Report Overview

Global demand for automotive sensors is being driven by rising consumer preference for alternative fuel vehicles to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and rising consumer demand for vehicle safety.

Global Automotive Sensors Market, 2028 – Industry Trends & Forecast

Global Automotive Sensors Market - Overview

Global Automotive Sensors Market is mainly driven by the increasing popularity of autonomous driving. Most of the automotive sensor industry is expanding along with the total automotive market. The main driver of the increased demand for automotive sensors is the wide deployment of ADAS and AD systems. Much of the market growth for automotive sensors is due to the sensors used in ADAS/AD systems, which include image sensors, temperature sensors, position sensors, speed sensors, and others.

Growing Demand for Modern technologies, Comfort, and Safety

Automakers promote non-contact 3D magnetic sensors to take the place of optical systems or potentiometers, which employ conventional position-sensing methods. These sensors conserve space, guarantee accurate measurements in a high-temperature setting, and eliminate wear and contamination problems. Position sensors for pedals, gearsticks, and transmission moving parts are just a few examples of the form factors that manufacturers can improve throughout the entire vehicle by using 3D magnetic sensing. The development of 3D gesture sensing by vendors such as STMicroelectronics and Elmos, for instance, aims to increase driver focus and do away with manual control of features such as entertainment and lighting in vehicles. Therefore, the increased adoption of cutting-edge technology is a trend that favorably impacts the market expansion.

Growth Drivers

Rapidly Increasing Demand for Pressure Sensors

To meet passenger car safety regulations, contemporary vehicle restraint systems include side airbag pressure sensors. The central airbag unit receives digital collision signals from the pressure sensor, which is built into the side doors of the car. The air pressure sensor also increases engine efficiency in gasoline and diesel engines by efficiently managing spark advance. As a result, global automotive sensors market is expected to grow as pressure sensors are increasingly used in engines and car safety systems.

Growing Popularity of Autonomous Vehicles

Over the next few years, it is anticipated that the autonomous capabilities of commercially available vehicles will develop quickly due to more stringent regulations, safety tests (particularly emergency brake assist), and increased public awareness of vehicle safety. For features such as adaptive cruise control, these vehicles need long-range radar sensors. They also need about two medium-range backward-facing radar sensors for blind spot detection. Additionally, functions like parking assistance require up to 12 ultrasonic sensors. Thus, it is expected that as demand for autonomous driving features rises, so will the need of high-precision sensors.

Restraints

High Costs and Restrictions during Bad Weather

The cost of the sensors employed in Advanced Driver Assistance Systems could not be brought down to goal levels due to the tiny production volumes. Furthermore, it is increasingly challenging to discern between system noise and signals, such as road impediments, because most modern sensors have a constrained signal bandwidth and measuring range. Additionally, monitoring moving objects is more difficult in less-than-ideal conditions, such as rain or blizzards. This, in turn, could impede the growth of global automotive sensors market.

Segmental Coverage

Global Automotive Sensors Market - By Sensor Type

Global Automotive Sensors Market by sensor type is categorized into position sensors, speed sensors, pressure sensors, temperature sensors, and others. The market is divided into ADAS, exhaust, chassis, powertrain, and others based on the kind of application. The market is divided into three segments based on the kind of vehicle: passenger vehicles, light commercial vehicles, and heavy commercial vehicles. Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, and the Rest of the World are the four main geographic divisions of the market.

Global Automotive Sensors Market - By Application

Global Automotive Sensors Market by application is segmented into powertrain, exhaust, chassis, ADAS, and others. LiDAR, cameras, and radar are examples of ADAS sensors. For safety-related applications, level 1 and level 2 autonomous cars primarily combine cameras and radars. For instance, to receive a five-star rating from the New Car Assessment Programme (NCAP), a vehicle must have a high degree of safety features, which is driving up demand for these radars and cameras.

Global Automotive Sensors Market - By Vehicle Type

Based on vehicle type, global automotive sensors market is segmented as passenger cars and commercial vehicles. With the introduction of strict rules regulating the installation of automotive sensors in vehicles, demand for installation in passenger cars is anticipated to increase tremendously. Throughout the period in analysis, the market growth will be aided by rising consumer spending power in developed economies of Europe and North America as well as rising demand for luxury vehicles with cutting-edge technologies, such as advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). The market for automotive sensors will increase favorably as more commercial vehicles, such as urban electric buses and coaches, adopt ADAS technology.

Impact of COVID-19 on Global Automotive Sensors Market

Several automotive sensor companies were significantly hit by the lockdown and economic crisis brought on by the COVID-19 outbreak. Significant resource bottlenecks in the worldwide supply and logistics chains have affected many automotive sensor manufacturers' companies in a noticeable unfavorable way in 2020. Most global supply chains were disrupted in Q1 2020, small and medium-sized firms were financially depleted, and automobile sales declined. Due to the pandemic's effects, there is less demand for automotive sensor testers, automotive sensor connectors, and automotive sensor simulators. Reduced output directly leads to a huge loss in sales and profitability in 2020, lowering R&D investments by key market competitors. Overall, the automobile industry will experience a slow uptake of these sensors in the near future and a decline in development funding in the years that follow.

Regional Insights

Geographically, Global Automotive Sensors Market is segmented into five major regions: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), Latin America, and Middle East and Africa. Among the major regions, APAC holds the highest market share in global automotive sensors market. The APAC market expansion is fueled by rising personal disposable income levels and readily available cheap labor. Efforts by governments across the APAC countries to improve road safety standards are also expected to boost the regional market expansion during the period in analysis. For example, the Indian Ministry of Road Transport has made it mandatory to install airbags, seat belt reminders, alarm systems, and reverse parking sensors in vehicles travelling at speeds greater than 80 km/h. Additionally, all vehicles built after July 01, 2019, require a manual override for the central locking system in the event of an electronic system failure.

Due to rising safety standards and improved fuel efficiency, Europe is predicted to experience tremendous development. For buses, vans, and trucks beginning in 2022, the government has enforced safety equipment, such as risky road user recognition systems and tire pressure monitoring. These factors could accelerate the market expansion. The adoption of electric vehicles is increasing, and North America is expected to witness significant increase. The North America automotive sensors market could also expand due to the spurring demand for autonomous vehicles.
