Strategic Analysis Report of the European Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems Market announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue: Strategic Analysis of the Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems Market in Europe

Legal Compliance of Indirect Systems Increases Original Equipment Manufacturers' Preference

Executive Summary—Key Findings

Almost % of tyre pressure monitoring systems' (TPMS) revenue in Europe at present is contributed by direct TPMSs.

  • TPMS, which are currently contributing € million to the European automotive market, are expected to generate revenue of € million by 2020 with CAGR of xx%.
  • A consistent level of technology mix of both direct and indirect systems is expected in the European market from 2012 to 2020.
  • The trend is predicted to shift towards indirect systems with the introduction of second-generation indirect systems.
  • In the European market, Audi and Volkswagen of Volkswagen Group prefer indirect systems over direct systems.
  • OEMs such as Honda and Fiat are expected to follow the same trend in the coming years.
  • Schrader is the market leader for direct TPMS in both regions. Dunlop Tech and Continental are fast-growing suppliers of indirect systems.

Competitive Positioning of Key Suppliers

Growing competition between direct and indirect system will impact the market position of direct TPMS suppliers.

  • Schrader leads the European market for TPMS with snap-in sensors. It closely competes with Continental.
  • Dunlop Tech is the 2nd leading provider of indirect TPMS solutions. In cooperation with BOSCH and their customers, such as BMW, they focus on delivering fuel-efficient TPMS solutions.
  • TRW's hybrid TPMS provide an auto-location function by combining direct sensors and information from ABS*/ESC* sensors.

Key Conclusions and Future Outlook

Low-cost TPMS solutions with a high performance-cost ratio from the suppliers are expected drive growth of the TPMS market.

Market Status

  • Robust growth is observed in the market and the TPMS legislations are rigorously driving the growth of TPMS
  • Expected to have steady growth until 2020.


  • Continental & Schrader hold xx% of the market in Europe for direct TPMS and 65% is held by Continental & Dunlop Tech for indirect TPMS
  • Aggressive competition from market players like Schrader, Dunlop Tech, Continental, and newer participants for intelligent tyres


  • Interest persists in reducing the price of the direct TPMS sensor
  • Higher levels of awareness among end users pushing concentration levels toward indirect systems


  • The market is likely to shift from manual direct to indirect TPMS post-2014 and also to hybrid TPMS post-2018
  • Deflation warning with auto-location and intelligent tyres have potential in the future

Value Proposition

  • Suppliers have the ability to offer low-cost direct TPMS sensors and a high-cost performance solution
  • OEMs have the ability to integrate applications into TPMS (e.g., RKE* + direct TPMS) and provide battery-less TPMS sensors
  • Fuel-efficient systems

Barriers in European Market

  • Need for consumer/public awareness
  • Cost competitiveness: need to adapt strategic pricing methods incorporating advanced embedded and sensing technologies
