Automotive MEMS Sensor Market: Introduction
Automotive Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) Sensors are computer systems that control and maintain the entire mechanical, electronic and electrical systems of the automobile. These systems are a combination at the nano-scale into NEMS (nanoelectromechanical systems) and nanotechnology.
The application of MEMS inertial sensors has unlocked various desirable features that are among the most common features in automobiles these days. Several applications have become well-known because they have become universal in automobiles. Certain applications that have the most advanced features are mainly found in high-end models, however, they are destined to become standard. Automotive MEMS sensors can be classified based on functions such as crash sensing for airbag control, vehicle dynamic control, rollover detection, antitheft systems, electronic parking brake systems, vehicle navigation systems and others. Automotive MEMS sensors mainly consist of a microprocessor/central unit that processes data and several microsensors that interact with the surroundings. Commonly used materials for automotive MEMS sensor systems/semiconductor device fabrication are silicon, polymers and metals such as gold, nickel, aluminium, copper, tungsten, chromium, titanium, platinum, etc.
Automotive MEMS Sensor Market: Dynamics
Increase in the demand for technologically advanced vehicles across the globe is one of the major factors driving the automotive MEMS sensor market. Government regulations regarding safety features to reduce the usage of fuel as well as the increasing demand for vehicles with better mileage by the general public are some of the major factors boosting the adoption of automotive MEMS sensors in the automotive industry. Moreover, the steady growth of alternative vehicle choices, such as the technologically advanced hybrid vehicles or pure electric cars, in various regions has contributed significantly to the automotive MEMS sensor market due to the high complexities of these automobiles over conventionally used vehicles. The ease of driving, driver safety, security concerns and the demand for vehicles that require low maintenance are also some of the factors driving the automotive MEMS sensor market.
An automotive MEMS sensor system usually comprises of mechanical and electronic components working in tandem with each other. The perfect integration of these components is a major challenge, which can, in turn, hinder the growth of the automotive MEMS sensor market.
