Research and Markets Adds Report on Global Sensors Market for Automotive Applications

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Sensors Market (Temperature, Pressure, Speed, Level/Position, Oxygen, Nox) For Automotive Applications 2012 - 2022" report to their offering.

The automotive industry was hit by the global recession on a massive scale dropping total production from 68 million units of light vehicle production to 58 million. Recession has turned the world automotive market upside down. Sales in developed markets such as the US, Western Europe and Japan fell by nearly 9%, 2% and 4% per year from 2004 to 2009, while emerging markets such as Brazil, China, and India grew by almost 14%, 26% and 12% percent respectively per year during the same period. The result is that emerging regions are now identified as better sensors market for automotive applications as the market is highly dependant on production.

Developed markets such as the U.S., U.K. and Japan have technologically advanced automotive markets due to the presence of prominent system suppliers, large semiconductor companies and sensor manufacturers. The size of the region, the affluence of consumers and the competitiveness of the light vehicle market make them a good market for sensor manufacturer. On the other hand, emerging markets such as China and India, due to the sharp increase in light vehicle manufacturing from 2004 till 2009 and expected continued growth in the near future, has a positive impact on the market for automotive sensors.

The government plays a significant role in the growth of automotive sensors. Environmental regulations such as Euro 5 and Euro 6 in Europe tend to limit pollution caused by road vehicles. These regulations require more complex and additional systems which in turn results in more electronic content in automotive. Legislation called TREAD Act in the United States has made the installation of TPMS (tire pressure monitoring systems) in all vehicles mandatory. The U.S. government also has made passengers airbags and side airbags compulsory which again will drive the pressure sensor market further.
