The development of automotive sensors technology such as pre-emptive technology and Conti APIA (integrated stability, collision avoidance, occupant protection) drives the market for automotive sensors significantly in the European region. Sensors in automotive applications such as emission control, battery control, night vision camera systems, occupant detection, etc. have witnessed an escalated growth in recent years. The continuous developments in electronics sensors application and technology along with the rising concern for safety would primarily help fuel the growth of the market in Europe. In addition, the increasing use of sensors in hybrid, semi-hybrid, and electric cars has helped boost the demand of automotive sensors in Europe. Lack of aftermarket for sensors, along with the stagnant growth of luxury vehicles (a major application for automotive sensors), is one of the main restraints to the growth of the market for automotive sensors in Europe. However, higher accuracy, self-test capabilities, and the need for rapid data transmission are fuelling the trend towards more intelligent sensors, driving the demand for automotive sensors in the forecast period.
Europe's automotive sensors market is segmented on the basis of type (temperature, pressure, speed, level/position, MEMS, magnetic, gas, and inertial), and application (powertrain, body electronics, vehicle security systems, alternative fuel vehicle, and telematics). Automotive MEMS is expected to dominate the European automotive sensor market in the forecast period. MEMS sensors are acquiring a key role in automotive infotainment and safety applications. The market for automotive MEMS devices has increased by 9% during the last 2 years, indicating that sensor penetration rates would further grow with the growth of passenger vehicles, driven by the recovery of the economy from the economic recession in 2010. ST Microelectronics, one of the leading manufacturers of automotive MEMS sensors, has developed a huge portfolio of MEMS automotive sensors qualified according to AEC-Q100 that are also fuel-efficient. One such significant MEMS sensor is low-g 3-axis accelerometer, which has advanced power-saving features and an extended temperature range that make them an ideal choice for non-critical automotive applications including telematics, navigation, infotainment, and security. Powertrain and vehicle security systems are expected to have a significant share in Europe's automotive sensors market during the forecast period.
