Sensors are an integral part of an electric vehicle, which ensures their safety and reliability. It helps in monitoring the load, displacement, and temperature of batteries. Also, it is designed to detect, transmit, analyze, record, and display overall vehicle performance.
According to the MarkNtel Advisors’ research report, "Global Electric Vehicle Sensors Market Analysis, 2021," the market is likely to grow at a CAGR of around 12% during 2021-26, primarily due to the rising demand for integrating advanced technologies into electric vehicles for monitoring temperature, current, pressure changes, etc.
Further, surging demand for premium vehicles also fuels the usage of sensors in electric vehicles. Mounting government initiatives toward promoting the development of various safety features and the rising number of electronic components in electric vehicles are crucial factors fueling the growth of the Global Electric Vehicle Sensors market across the world.
Impact of COVID-19
The sudden outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has adversely affected the global market for Electric Vehicle Sensors due to the lockdown imposed and trading restrictions that have disrupted the supply chain and affected the export of Chinese parts.
Further, the temporary shutdown of large-scale manufacturing units and the closure of assembly plants throughout the world has negatively affected the production of electric vehicle sensors. The imposition of lockdown and stringent rules laid by the government is not beneficial for the overall growth of the automotive industry.
However, as the government has started relaxing norms for resuming business activities, the Electric Vehicle Sensors market is reviving and shall grow substantially in the coming future.
Temperature Sensors Accounted for the Largest Market Share
Based on the Type, the market bifurcates into Temperature, Current/Voltage, Engine-Based, Proximity, Pressure, Position, Inertial, and Speed Sensors. Among these segments, Temperature Sensors acquired the largest share in the Global Electric Vehicle Sensors Market in the previous few years due to the rising need for thermal-management solutions to ensure the continuous operation of critical parts and safety of a vehicle.
Each part of an electric vehicle requires temperature monitoring. Continuous temperature monitoring and accurate information regarding variation in temperature recorded at different times & locations are beneficial for the vehicle processor to temperature-compensate the system. It leads the vehicle to optimize its performance and maximize reliability. Therefore, the demand for the temperature sensor segment is substantially high cites, MarkNtel Advisors in their research report, "Global Electric Vehicle Sensors Market Analysis, 2021."
