What is next in the TPMS market ?

TPMS market is at a cross roads today. Several questions are raised at technical and market levels. A few challenges are happening in a market that is seeing many newcomers:

- Progress in indirect measurement systems,
- Legislation change in Europe for reducing CO2 emissions,
- Moving the sensor from the valve to the tire inlay,
- Energy harvesting devices technologies and integration.

Each point will have very strong impact on the market and would
mean a market shift.

TPMS MEMS market opportunity 99% of direct TPM Systems currently use MEMS pressure sensors. If nothing changes in European or Asian legislation, the current market for TPMS pressure sensors is expected to reach $183M in 2012 from $168M in 2007, seeing a CAGR of 2% till 2012 in revenue due to a strong erosion of prices, despite an increase of 12% in volume.

Even though the market already has two leaders sharing most of the market, a crowd of newcomers are preparing new pressure sensors. Yet, if the European legislation makes TPMS mandatory equipment on all new cars, driven by rising concerns on CO2 emissions, the pressure sensor market would READ MORE >
