Based on the type, motor vehicle sensors are classified as chemical property sensors, process variable sensors, physical property sensors, proximity and positioning sensors, and other small sensors. Sensors used to measure physical properties such as speed, force, motion, and vibration accounted for the largest revenue share in 2014. Physical sensors are available with different technologies, which include the piezoelectric effect, capacitive coupling, and microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), among others. Process variable sensors are used in motor vehicles to measure process-related quantities such as pressure, temperature, flow, and level, among others. A temperature sensor is the most common type of process variable sensor used in automobile applications. Proximity and positioning sensors are used for detecting the location of vehicles. Inductive sensors, capacitive sensors, potentiometric sensors, and photoelectric sensors are some common types of proximity and positioning sensors. Advanced proximity and positioning sensors include laser sensors, infrared sensors, ultrasonic sensors, radar sensors, and fiber optic sensors, among others. Radar, infrared, and laser sensors are used in the vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) systems to inform drivers about the distance between two vehicles and other roadside objects. This segment is expected to witness considerable growth, with rising demand for driver assistance systems through the forecast period of 2016–2023.

We have considered motor vehicle sensors used in the following applications:

  • Emission Control
  • Safety and Security
  • Engine and Drivetrain
  • Others (Fuel Cell, Passenger Comfort, etc.)

The engine and drivetrain are the largest application segment for motor vehicle sensors. Mandatory government regulations to improve the efficiency of motor vehicle engines to reduce fuel consumption are driving the demand for sensors used for these applications. Safety and security sensors are expected to grow significantly with the increasing importance of passenger and driving safety. Sensors used in dashcams, vehicle-to-vehicle, and vehicle-to-infrastructure systems help to avoid accidents and provide security measures in case of accidents. Safety and security are expected to see the fastest growth through the forecast period of 2016–2023. Countries worldwide focus on reducing vehicle emissions and introducing mandatory regulations to maintain the emission level of motor vehicles. This is increasing the demand for sensors used for emission control applications.
