Global Markets for Automotive Sensor Technologies

Apr 2012| IAS018D| BCC Publishing

Report Highlights

The global market for automobile sensors was $14.1 billion in 2011 and is expected to reach nearly $15.2 billion by 2012. BCC projects this market to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.7% reaching $22.1 billion in 2017.

Report Scope

In today’s automobile industry, systems controlled by sensors have become an integral part, and this has made most electro-mechanical devices more refined and more efficient with their application.  The development and deployment of a number of sensing technologies support and enable the introduction of advanced electronic systems, although there are challenges regarding robustness, reliability, quality and cost.  Although new sensors are emerging to improve system functionality and enable future advanced systems, existing sensors will also continue to find new applications, building upon their past record of performance.  This report will study the areas in the production of an automobile that have advanced with the use of sensors, and the markets for these sensors in various applications and regions.

For this report, automobiles are considered to include all passenger cars, light commercial vehicles (LCVs), heavy commercial vehicles (HCVs) and buses.
