Global Automotive Linear Positions Sensors Market is valued at approximately USD 1.6 billion in 2019 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 8.2% over the forecast period 2020-2027. Automotive linear position sensors are primarily used in vehicles to examine the component position in respect of its reference point. They can be used to determine the seat position, pedal position, steering wheel position, and the position of several knobs, valves, and actuators. These sensors also allow the occupant of the vehicle to take essential action corresponding to the signal of the sensor. Further, these sensors develop numerous technologies to examine the position of automotive components & systems, such as optical reflection or imaging, hall-effect sensors, and wiper-arm potentiometers. Further, increasing production & sales of passenger & commercial vehicles, rising technological development in the automotive industry via automation and digitization, and surging investment for the development of advanced and technical products are the few factors responsible for the high CAGR of the market during the forecast period. According to the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers (OICA), in 2019, there were around 67.1 million units of passenger cars produced around the world, representing an increase of 65.7 million units from 2013. This, in turn, is expected to strengthen the market growth all over the world. Although, the recent outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic has been affecting badly to the countries across the globe, due to which the overall sensor, control, and automation industry is adversely affecting. While, the capital investments in the automation sector are lethargic before the COVID-19 crisis, and presently, they are expected to be postponeded for at least a year. Therefore, this factor is negatively influencing the demand for automotive linear position sensors in the recent year. However, the high cost of the automotive position sensor impedes the growth of the market over the forecast period of 2020-2027.
