New York, United States, Feb. 28, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Automotive sensors collect and transmit data to evaluate a vehicle's performance. Sensors detect environmental occurrences or alterations and then produce a corresponding output. As they detect physical inputs such as light, heat, motion, moisture, pressure, or any other entity, they either display the information or transmit it for further processing. It utilizes silicon wafer-based integrated circuit (IC) fabrication technology. It monitors and controls a vehicle's chemical, mechanical, and operational changes. Various sensors in the automotive industry improve a vehicle's comfort, safety, and fuel economy. Sensors are commonly utilized in all types of vehicles, from two-wheeled vehicles to heavy-duty trucks.

Growing Demand for Premium Vehicles Owing to the Inclination of Consumers Toward Comfort and Luxury Drives the Global Market

According to Straits Research, “The global automotive sensor market size was valued at USD 8,290.76 million in 2022. It is estimated to reach USD 13,389.59 million by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 5.47% during the forecast period (2023–2031).” The demand for luxury vehicles has increased due to superior quality, performance, comfort, and innovative design and technology. China, Japan, the United States, Canada, India, and European nations are significant markets for luxury vehicles. Individuals' increased discretionary income and improved living standards in these regions have increased the demand for luxury vehicles. Luxury automobiles such as the BMW 7 series, Audi 8, and Mercedes Benz E-class have more than 100 sensors installed. Typically, the sensors collaborate with microcontrollers and embedded systems within the engine control unit (ECU). Modern luxury automobiles have more electronic control units (ECUs) than conventional vehicles. Increasing consumer demand for more vehicle features will increase the number of electronic control units (ECUs) and the need for more technologically advanced sensors, driving the growth of the global market.

Rising Demand for ADAS Systems and Autonomous Vehicles Creates Tremendous Opportunities

Due to increasing consumer demand for safer and more secure driving and the ability to share the internet with other devices inside and outside the vehicle, the automotive market is observing a significant increase in the development of advanced vehicles such as autonomous cars and connected vehicles. The increasing demand for ADAS systems can be attributed to the recent technological trends driving the use of sensors. In addition, components such as adaptive cruise control, adaptive light control, automatic braking, parking assistance, blind-spot detection, collision avoidance systems, driver fatigue detection, and lane departure warning systems are enabling a new generation of vehicles, which is compelling sensor manufacturers to expand their portfolio of sensors, particularly position and proximity sensors.

Regional Analysis

China's automotive sensors market share is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.27% over the forecast period. China is the global automotive industry's linchpin, the largest market, and the most potent producer of automobiles. China's automotive industry has reached unprecedented heights due to the country's expanding economy, rising disposable income, and government assistance. China is one of the largest manufacturers of automotive sensors and is anticipated to experience future growth. This is primarily attributable to the escalating production of passenger cars and rising disposable incomes. Foreign OEMs prefer to invest in the Chinese market due to the country's superior and less expensive production. In addition, China controls 85 percent of the world's cobalt supply in automotive sensors. As a result, sensor manufacturers in China are thriving due to an abundant and consistent supply of raw materials for semiconductor manufacturing, which is driving market expansion.

Asia-Pacific and Japan (APJ) is anticipated to exhibit a CAGR of 4.97% over the forecast period. The Asia-Pacific and Japan (APJ) automotive market is dominated by South Asian countries that are home to some of the most renowned automakers in the world. APJ is home to several of the world's most prominent automobile manufacturers, including Toyota Motor Corporation, Honda Motors, Hyundai-Kia, and Nissan. In addition, Asia-Pacific occupies a prominent position in the global automotive supply chain. Another major factor contributing to the growth of the APJ market is the resilience and recovery of the economies of the countries within this region during the 2008-2009 global economic crisis, which led to a sustained increase in automobile production and sales worldwide. Asia-Pacific and Japan generally have abundant raw materials required to manufacture the semiconductors used to manufacture sensors.
