2019 Analysis and Review of Automotive Sensors Market by Vehicle Type - Passenger Cars, LCVs, HCVs for 2019 - 2028

Factors Shaping Global Automotive Sensors Market

Spotlight on Driver Safety to Boost Demand for Automotive Sensors

Regions such as Western Europe and North America, are developed, with abundant demand for automobiles. Governments and ruling authorities in these regions have imposed stringent regulations to ensure driver safety in automobile. If any irregularities are found, the manufacturer is charged with heavy penalties. That apart, causalities also create a bad image of the company among consumers in the market.

The world is moving towards easy-to-control and safer technologies, which is why, consumers are inclining towards automation provided by advanced sensors. Increasing demand for safety sensors, such as seat belt tension, impact sensors, anti-theft, parking sensors, etc., is expected to create significant opportunities for manufacturers, contributing significantly to the growth of the automotive sensors market.

Growing ADAS Deployment in Commercial Vehicles

The growing mining and construction sector across the globe has augmented the demand for heavy commercial vehicles. Truck fleet owners and operators are investing in performance upgrades to improve fuel efficiency and driving comfort.

ADAS such as adaptive cruise control system (ACCS), autonomous emergency braking system (AEBS), and lane keeping assist (LKA) are improving the business case for commercial vehicles. Truck platooning is anticipated to be one of the next technologies to commercialize in this space. For truck platooning, automated driving support and connectivity technology will be required. This, in turn, will increase ADAS penetration in trucks.

ADAS technology has been implemented in existing as well as upcoming models of urban buses and coaches, in particular. ADAS such as blind spot detection (BSD), forward collision warning (FCW), and autonomous emergency braking (AEB) alert the driver of the presence of pedestrian, vehicle, or cyclist is alongside them. Installation of such features in buses and coaches will significantly fuel the demand for ADAS sensors. Commercial vehicle sales will have a positive impact in the growth of automotive sensors market during the forecast period.
