Automotive Sensors Market Analysis: Share, Size, and Forecast

Automotive Sensors Market Overview

The size of the global automotive sensors market will increase USD 11 billion between 2016-2021, accelerating at a CAGR of 7% during the forecast period. This growth in market size will be attributed to the introduction of stringent emission norms. With growing health and environmental concerns, governments across the globe are focusing on implementing stringent emission norms and since emission sensors play a major role in decreasing the emission of toxic gases from vehicles, the introduction of such automotive emissions, will drive the growth of automotive sensor market. 

The implementation of HDR camera sensors is the major emerging trend expected to gain traction within in the automotive sensors market space during the forecast period. Since self-driving cars primarily use radars, LiDAR sensors, and video cameras for tracking road signs, vehicles, pedestrians, and other obstacles, sensors that are being used in most self-driving vehicles face challenging situations such as flickering LEDs or a sudden transition into a tunnel on a sunny day. To combat these challenges, HDR sensors are being designed to withstand all extreme conditions. For example, Sony's latest automotive camera sensor has high sensitivity, high dynamic range (HDR) capability and anti-flicker technology that is designed specifically to help autonomous vehicles function in less than ideal conditions.
