Automotive Sensors are vital components of automotive electronic systems, as modern vehicles rely on these electronic systems to make sure vehicles meet efficiency and security standards as well as environmental regulations. Driven by government regulations of safety and emissions, introduction of high-end options in modern vehicles by major automobile manufacturers and consumer demand for safety, comfort, infotainment applications and fuel efficiency, automotive electronics content per vehicle is on the rise. As the electronics content is increasing in automobiles, the number of automotive sensors used in vehicles is also increasing.

Primarily, the government regulations in North America, Europe, Japan, China and South Korea, driving demand for automobile safety features that ranges from passive to integrated active and passive safety systems. These developments are driving increased demand for applications such as tire pressure monitoring, electronic stability control, occupant detection and advanced driver assistant systems. Also, the number of electronic components in engine management, fuel efficiency, occupant comfort & convenience applications and infotainment systems are increasing. In addition, the use of networking in automotive applications continues to increase as various subsystems communicate within vehicle and with the external devices and networks. Driven by these advancements in automotive industry, the global market for automotive electronics, estimated at US$191.3 billion in 2013, is further projected to reach US$314.4 billion1 by 2020, thereby maintaining a CAGR of 7.3% between 2012 and 2020.

Overall, the major driving forces for increased demand for automotive sensors in vehicles include regulatory mandates for improving fuel economy and stringent emission standards as well as requirements for advanced safety systems. The growth is also attributed by consumer demand for safety & security, comfort & convenience features and the growth of hybrid and electric vehicles which is creating enormous opportunities for new types of sensors in automobile industry. Automotive Sensors market worldwide, standing at US$16.2 billion in 2012, estimated to be US$17.4 billion in 2013 and forecast at US$18.8 billion in 2014, is further projected to reach US$30.3 billion by 2020, thereby posting a CAGR Of 8.2% between 2012 and 2020. Estimated to be US$2.6 billion in 2013, demand for Automotive MEMS Sensors globally is projected to reach US$4.7 billion by 2020.
