Summary:
Sensors have become indispensable in automobiles because they provide vital information about parameters such as temperature, position, pressure, force and load, and flow and level, and they affect various systems in the automobile.Technological advances in electronic control systems increase the efficiency of these automotive sensors, so users are calling for advances in sensor accuracy, reliability, response time, robustness, miniaturization and communication capability.

The automotive sensor industry is robust and is expected to experience sound growth during the five-year forecast period.

Automobiles utilize numerous sensors to provide critical data concerning performance, safety, comfort and other functions.One of the first applications of automobile sensors was to measure the manifold absolute pressure in ignition and fuel control systems.

This continues to be an important parameter. Sensors used to enhance powertrain performance (e.g., crankshaft position, knock, air mass flow, exhaust gas, temperature) were subsequently added to automobiles. New challenges have come up with the increasing use of electronically controlled and actuated systems for power steering, slip control systems and adaptive cruise control in automobiles. New sensors for applications in long-range radar, optical torque steering, tire-pressure monitoring and yaw rate measurement have been added to traditional sensors. The cost of the sensor is also a contributory factor in the selection of sensors, and large-volume production is a solution for this problem. Sensor manufacturers must deliver robustly built sensors with the necessary quality and price to stay competitive in the market.

Automotive sensors are vital components of automotive electronic systems. Modern vehicles rely on these electronic systems so that vehicles meet efficiency and security standards as well as environmental regulations. The amount of automotive electronics content per vehicle is increasing due to -
- Government regulations concerning safety and emissions.
- Introduction of high-end options in modern vehicles by major automobile manufacturers.
- Consumer demand for safety, comfort, infotainment applications and fuel efficiency.

The electronics content is increasing in automobiles, and the number of automotive sensors used in vehicles is increasing as well.The market for automotive sensors is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of REDACTED per year from 2021 to 2026.

The new applications of automobile sensors will help to cater to increasing environmental and safety legislations, as well as boost the market.
