Automotive Sensors Market Key Drivers

Various factors help in the growth of the Automotive Sensors Market. They are as follows:

  • Growing prevalence of alternative fuels: Any technology utilized to power an engine without using petroleum is known as an alternative fuel vehicle (e.g., electric vehicles, hybrid electric vehicles, solar-powered vehicles). Growing adoption of alternative fuels (e.g., gasoline or diesel) and vehicles will lower consumption gasoline costs, reduce emissions, and improve national energy security. It will drive the market for automotive sensors.
  • Increase in the use of pressure sensors in the automotive industry: Modern vehicle restraint systems utilize side airbag pressure sensors to satisfy passenger car safety requirements. The pressure sensor is integrated into the vehicle’s side doors and sends digital crash signals to the central airbag unit. Furthermore, the air pressure sensor improves engine efficiency by effectively controlling spark advances in gasoline and diesel engines. Hence, the market is expected to develop due to the rising use of pressure sensors in the engine and the vehicle’s safety system.
  • Rising growth of autonomous vehicles: Automotive Sensors Market is primarily driven by the rising adoption of autonomous vehicles around the world growing need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and the increasing demand for high-quality security, and tracking systems in vehicles.

Automotive Sensors Market Challenges

Many challenges are faced by Automotive Sensors Market. They are listed below:

  • High development cost: Because of the small quantities produced, it is impossible to reduce the cost of sensors used in advanced driver assistance systems to target levels.
  • The underdeveloped aftermarket for automotive sensors in emerging economies: The automotive sensors business is an OEM-dominant business because of the underdeveloped aftermarket for automotive sensors. For various other business segments, such as industrial sensors and home automation electronics, the aftermarket plays a vital role in promoting market growth. However, in terms of automotive sensors, technical specifications for sensors are given by the vehicle manufacturer or a tier 1 supplier, which is the primary reason behind the difficulty in the commercialization of automotive sensors.
  • Safety and security threats in autonomous vehicles: There have been multiple fatal incidents in Level 3 to Level 5 autonomous vehicles, wherein vehicles had limited human interaction. Moreover, the EU Agency for Cybersecurity (ENISA) and Joint Research Centre (JRC) released a report that autonomous vehicles are susceptible to adversarial risks.
