[187 Pages Report] The Automotive Sensors Market size was estimated at USD 32.79 billion in 2023 and expected to reach USD 36.53 billion in 2024, at a CAGR 11.75% to reach USD 71.38 billion by 2030.

Automotive sensors are essential in modern vehicles that detect, measure, and transmit critical information to ensure optimal performance, safety, and efficiency. These sophisticated devices convert physical parameters such as pressure, temperature, speed, position, and gas concentration into electrical signals processed by electronic control units (ECUs) to monitor and control various vehicle functions. Meanwhile, the growing production of automotive vehicles with embedded security features and high-quality sensors for infotainment increases the demand for high-quality sensors. Additionally, the strict norms in the automotive industry for vehicle emission has frequently contributed to the automotive sensors market growth. However, the issues related to the automotive sensors, such as failures and the widening availability of sensors from aftermarket, significantly hinder the market expansions. Companies are working toward research and development activities and innovative technologies to cater to certain challenges. Moreover, the advancements in automotive sensor technology with AR and VR in-vehicle cameras drive the future demands for automotive sensors with the rising adoption rate for electric and self-driving vehicles worldwide.

Type: Utilization of radar and ADAS sensor for smooth driving experience

Automotive sensors are vital in enhancing vehicle performance, safety, and emissions control. Image sensors are crucial for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous driving applications. They assist in lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, and pedestrian detection. A pressure sensor used in electric vehicles converts pressure into an electric signal depending on the amount of force applied. Pressure sensors also measure fluid pressure in automotive applications, including tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS), fuel delivery systems, and engine management systems. Additionally, a coolant temperature sensor is utilized to measure the temperature of the engine coolant in heavy-duty vehicles. Proximity and pressure sensors are widely used in automotive applications for pressure monitoring and detecting objects surrounding the car. Furthermore, radar and speed sensors provide distance and object detection in ADAS applications along with speed measurements, such as blind spot detection, adaptive cruise control, and lane change assist. Oxygen or lambda sensors help optimize fuel consumption by measuring the oxygen content in exhaust gasses to maintain optimal air-fuel ratio in combustion engines.

Positioning: High deployment of interior sensors for vehicle performance management

Exterior sensors, also known as intrusion-detection sensors, are widely used to detect an intruder crossing the boundary of a protected area. Radar front, rear, and side sensors have become essential in modern production vehicles’ parking assistance and blind-spot detection. On the other hand, interior sensors are used to aid in detecting intrusions inside buildings or other structures. This sensor is used for vehicle locking and arm the alarm, and is designed to catch any movement inside the vehicle.

Distribution Channel: Widening availability of automotive sensor through aftermarket supply channels

The widening availability of automotive sensors throughout the original equipment manufacturers and aftermarket significantly contributes to the market of automotive sensors. Several manufacturers avail their products to customers through their store and supplier channels. Additionally, the increasing aftermarket store for automotive components frequently boosts market growth by providing cost-effective automotive sensors. The choice between aftermarket and OEM automotive sensors depends on customers’ preferences and needs. Aftermarket sensors are more affordable and accessible compared to OEM products. They cater to car owners seeking cost-effective options or wanting personalized performance enhancements. However, quality may vary across different aftermarket brands and products. On the other hand, OEM automotive sensors provide consistent, high-quality products that comply with strict industry standards for safety and performance. Vehicle manufacturers often choose OEMs due to their close working relationships on product customization and solution development. OEM sensors usually come at a premium price, assuring customers of compatibility, reliability, and regulatory compliance.

Application: Rising adoption of automotive sensors for vehicle monitoring and pressure control processes

Automotive body electronics sensors are essential components in modern vehicles, responsible for monitoring and controlling various functions, including engine, chassis, and emission control. The rise in demand for advanced features, such as automatic climate control and infotainment during vehicle drives increases the adoption of connectivity sensors in the automotive industry. Automotive sensors play a vital role across various application segments, including body and chassis management systems, exhaust emissions monitoring, powertrain optimization, safety controls implementation in ADAS systems, and telematic services for vehicle connectivity purposes. The constant evolution of technology has led major manufacturers to continually innovate by developing more efficient sensing solutions that cater to ever-changing market demands while complying with stringent regulations.

Vehicles: Expanding integration of automotive sensors in light commercial & passenger vehicles

Heavy commercial vehicles (HCV) comprise trucks, buses, and other large cars primarily using powertrain control systems, engine management, transmission control systems, exhaust after-treatment systems, and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). On the other hand, light commercial vehicles (LCV) and passenger cars include ADAS, powertrain & engine control systems, chassis & body electronics, infotainment systems, and interior controls. While all three vehicle segments prioritize fuel efficiency and emission reduction due to increased regulatory requirements globally, HCVs focus on heavy-duty engine applications. At the same time, LCVs cater to urban transportation demands, and passenger cars have a broader range of sensor applications due to their diverse needs for safety, comfort, infotainment systems integration, and electrification advancements.
