Automotive Sensors Market Overview:

Automotive sensors market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 2% over the forecast period.

Sensors tend to have enormous use in all automobiles, even in two-wheelers and lorries. The uses of sensors are found in wipers, dashboards, parking seats, tailgate alarms, and many more vehicles. With the increase in the popularity of vehicle automation and the increase in the demand for concept cars, the market has also been rising at a similar pace. According to various studies, almost 90% of the future cars will be based on automation. This will subsequently lead to the growth of the Market Size.

While the sensors are used to detect, record, and measure physical activities, responses are sent by transmitting the information. Thus, automotive sensors are a vital part of the vehicle system, detect, transmit, and analyze vehicle performance information internally and externally.

COVID-19 analysis

COVID-19 has brought some serious complications in the global market. The entire pandemic scenario has impacted the Automotive Sensors Industry in the forms of export of the Chinese parts, manufacturing interruption, and the closure of the plants where the assembly of the parts is done. Though, it is entirely dependent on the level and severity of the pandemic and the decision taken by the governments about the lockdown phase.

The pandemic has impacted collaborations, R&D, and even the partnerships in the market. The production of the vehicles is going to be largely affected due to decreased demand in the market. The increase in the demand for the new vehicles is most pandemic affected and has fewer chances of getting better any sooner. All these negative effects of the pandemic on the vehicle market directly affect the Automotive Sensors Market Outlook.

Competitive Landscape

The major players in the automotive sensor market are as follows: Analog Devices Inc. (U.S.), Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (U.S.), Broadcom Limited (U.S.), TRW Automotive Inc. (U.S.), Bosch Sensortech GmBH (Germany), Infineon Technologies AG (Germany), Sensata Technologies (U.S.), Bourns Inc. (U.S.), Panasonic Corporation (Japan), Delphi Automotive LLP (U.K), Micronas Semiconductor Inc. (Switzerland), Denso Corporation (Japan), Micronas Semiconductor Inc. (Switzerland), GE Measurement & Control Solutions (U.S.), Continental AG (Germany) and  STMicroelectronics (Switzerland).

All these prominent players in the market have focused on bringing growth in the market by introducing the most recent technologies in the market. In addition, the collaborations, acquisitions, and mergers amongst themselves have been making the market even stronger. Also, all of these have been strategizing the plans and implementing them wisely in their work culture to bring the best out of themselves.

Market Dynamics


The global Automotive Sensors Market Size is expected to reach a market value of approximately 35 billion USD by the end of 2023. Also, the market is expecting a CAGR of approximately 7% during the upcoming forecast period.


Various factors have been bringing tremendous growth in the market. The rising disposable income of individuals, especially the middle-class population, is one of the major factors driving the Automotive Sensors Market Trends. While the companies offer different types of sensors, these perfectly designed sensors are useful in various applications like exhausting the temperature, measuring position, pressure, torque, and much more.

The rise in miniaturization in various regions across the globe has also been successful in taking the automotive sensor market to the heights of success.


The major restraint is the decrease in the demand for diesel vehicles. This is because diesel vehicles tend to produce more pollution as compared to other vehicles. Thus, while the deteriorating air quality and the taxation changes are the major factors of concern, the fall in the sales of diesel vehicles and subsequently decreased the new car registration the world over. All of this results in the hampering of the automotive sensor market.

Regulatory implications

The stringent rules and regulations due to the laws laid down by the governments seem to affect the Automotive Sensors Market Trends indirectly. The automotive sensor market is directly dependent on the automotive market. The increased demand for automotive vehicles automatically brings Market Growth. While stringent laws in the vehicle industry make sure that they take utmost care of the pollution element, diesel cars have been reduced in production. The aim to protect the environment and make it worth living has made governments follow such stringent policies, subsequently affecting the Market Revenue.
