Automotive Ultrasonic Sensors Market Scenario:


Global Automotive Ultrasonic Sensors Market is anticipated to register a CAGR of 6% between 2020 and 2027.


With regards to cars, increasing safety issues are driving the governments of various countries to implement specific policies for the implementation of different safety features in vehicles, such as blind-spot detection (BSD). The European Union's (EU) obligatory strategy of equipping all new lorries with blind-spot mirrors since 2007 and older lorries with blind-spot mirrors since 2009 is the biggest example of this. The dependence of these safety features on ultrasonic sensors for their functioning is driving the growth of the automotive ultrasonic sensors market.


A speaker or microphone that emits or absorbs ultrasound is an ultrasonic sensor. There is also a mechanism that can control emissions and reception.  Sensors for car parking are fitted with this type of sensor. Ultrasound sensors were originally used in cars to detect parking barriers, but they are now developing into an automated parking system.  Parking sensors use a form of sonar. The word ‘sonar’ is an acronym for sound navigation and radar; it is used from the moment it takes for a sound wave to pass to the target and back to determine the distance and/or position of an object.


Two to four ultrasonic sensors are mounted on the rear bumper to detect an object up to 2 to 2.5 m away in the case of the rear sonar. The distance is transmitted in real-time to the driver using varying buzzer sounds. It can trace even a wire fence if it is close enough.
