Another major factor driving the global Pressure Sensor Market is the stringent implementation of various government regulations to ensure safety of the passengers in the vehicles. Governments all over the world are mandating various acts to ensure safety of passengers in the automobiles. For instance, the TREAD Act in the U.S. has made installation of TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) mandatory in all types of vehicles so as to warn the driver about the under inflation of vehicle, within 20 minutes of its detection. Similarly, on November 1, 2012, the European Union issued instructions that all new passenger car models (M1) released, must be equipped with a TPMS. These safety regulations have provided an impetus to the growth of the global pressure sensor market. Currently, the global pressure sensor market is dominated by various market players, such as Honeywell International, Inc. (U.S.), Freescale Semiconductor, Inc.
