Automotive Sensors is an input device of the computer system of the car. It converts various operating condition information such as vehicle speed, the temperature of multiple media, engine operating conditions, etc. into the electrical signal to the computer, so that the engine is at its best working status. There are many automotive sensors. When judging a sensor’s failure, not only the sensor itself, but the entire circuit where the failure occurs is considered.
Automotive sensors used solely on engines and have been extended to chassis, body, and lighting electrical systems. These systems employ more than 100 sensors. Common types of sensors used in automobiles include wheel speed sensors, crankshaft/camshaft position sensors, temperature sensors, pressure sensors, knock sensors, etc. The application of sensors in automobiles is continuously expanding. They are used in various aspects of automotive electronic stability control systems (including wheel speed sensors, gyroscopes, and brake processors), lane departure warning systems, and blind-spot detection systems (including radar, infrared, or optical sensors).
India Automotive Sensors Market projected to grow with a momentous rate over the forecast period, 2020-2027. The rising need for electric and hybrid vehicles and the development of autonomous vehicles will propel the growth of the India automotive sensor market in the future periods. Additionally, the growth in motor vehicle production in India will propel the automotive sensors market in future periods. The India automotive sensors market is driven by several factors, such as the government’s push for new energy and smart car development to ensure road safety.
Moreover, consumers are increasingly expecting intelligence to achieve an easy and safe driving experience. Further, the use of sensors to detect vehicles can effectively save costs, such as tire maintenance and other data collection needs, along with expanding integration of high-value sensing modules like imaging, RADAR, and LiDAR accelerated the automotive sensor market expansion.
Furthermore, the rise in consumer awareness of the demand for automotive safety functions, such as airbags, anti-lock braking systems (ABS), and anti-collision systems selected as safety systems, will drive the Indian automotive sensors market in the projected periods. The automotive sensor market is growing based on increasing demand for automotive, stringent emission regulations by the Indian government, coupled with the augmented demand for safety features in the automotive.
Increasing consumer demand for security, safety, comfort, and efficiency in heavy-duty on and off-road vehicle operation, the performance demands by customers to increase productivity and minimize vehicle downtime are driving OEMs to utilize more sensors in passenger vehicles to achieve all of these essential goals. Such a diverse portfolio of vehicle control and management sensors helps vehicles operate safely, increase productivity, and maximize vehicle uptime.
Migration of comfort and safety attributes from high-end vehicles to mid-range vehicles, growth of new and more complicated safety features, and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) is increasing the average semiconductor content (sensor content) per vehicle.
The demand for the automotive sensor in automobiles is also increasing due to strict government regulations for automobile safety and emissions. These regulations lead to increasing demand for sensors in applications such as engine management System (EMS), tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS), electronic stability control (ESC) system, occupant detection, and advanced driver assistant systems (ADAS).
For instance, the Indian government has de-licensed the use of devices or wireless microphones in the frequency bands of 36-38 MHz, 433-434.79 MHz, 302-351 kHz, and 76-77 GHz. De-licensing of these low-frequency bands has enabled the vehicle manufacturers to use this frequency through the radar-based system and focus on selective ADAS features development.
The automobile manufacturing industry of India is the world’s fourth largest and seventh largest of commercial vehicles in 2018. According to IBEF, the passenger vehicle sales in India crossed the 3.37 million units in FY19 and further expected to increase to 10 million units by FY20. Production of passenger vehicles rose by 2.8 %.
