Speed Sensor Market Trends

  • Increasing demand of electronics in automotive sector is driving the market growth

By enhancing the operation of entertainment systems and vehicle efficiency, the electronics components employed in the automotive sector have improved the performance of the vehicles. The sensors are an essential component of the automotive industry since they serve a variety of functions. These aid automakers in creating car models that are safer to operate, cosier, and more fuel-efficient. The sensors have also made it possible for vehicles to become much more automated, which is advantageous for sensor technology. The technology for autonomous vehicles has also been established as a result of technological advancements. Without a human driver, this car uses a variety of sensors to operate, including features that aid in avoiding traffic jams and road hazards. Similar to this, the vehicle speed sensors aid in determining the output of the gearbox or the speed of the wheels. The Electronic Control Unit (ECU), which includes both hardware and software, is connected to all these various internal vehicle sensors. The air/fuel ratio, ignition timing, transmission shift points, and diagnostic paths are all modified by this unit using the data obtained from the speed sensor. Therefore, it is anticipated that the automotive industry's use of electronics, such as sensor technology, will propel the speed sensor market throughout the projection period.

One of the main elements contributing to the market's optimistic outlook is the rising use of electric cars (EVs), which coincides with the automotive industry's rapid growth. Additionally, the increasing volume of traffic poses several difficulties for drivers, which has led to an increase in the use of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), which maximise road safety. Automotive WSS is used to calculate the wheel speed in ADAS systems like ABS, traction control systems (TCS), adaptive cruise control (ACC), and motor control units (MCU). Additionally, the seamless operation of the vehicle is ensured by the perfect coordination of various technological systems, which also increases traffic safety. In addition to this, the integration of ABS in automobiles is being mandated by regulatory bodies of several nations, which is promoting market expansion. Other aspects that are anticipated to promote market expansion include rising advancements in performance, mechanics, materials, engines and fuels, aerodynamics, and autonomous control in automotive vehicles, as well as rising sales of passenger automobiles globally.

It is projected that the growing global need for greater vehicle safety will propel industry expansion. Vehicles, electronic devices, and other devices can operate without interruption thanks to them. Major participants in the market are also projected to launch revolutionary products with improved safety features and algorithmic performance, which will accelerate the industry's growth. For instance, Allergo Microsystems, one of the top producers of IC (Integrated Circuits), debuted the A19250 & A19350 wheel speed IC in June 2019. These chips have revolutionary GMR technology and adhere to strict direction norms established by governmental authorities. These GMR-based ICs come with an integrated EMC protection capacitor and are available in a small single-in-line package. These are intended to be used with magnet encoder rings in order to measure velocity and obtain direction information. Additionally, a group of academics from LPU announced in November 2021 the creation of an IoT-based smart safety system for school buses. By detecting the speed, maintaining track of the wheel's direction information, and transmitting this sensory information to the gearbox unit, this system contains a speed sensor market to ensure the safety of children. It is projected that the industry's recent advances would accelerate market expansion. Thus, driving the Speed Sensor market revenue.
