Overview of the global automotive inertial measurement unit (IMU) sensors market

Market research analysts at Technavio have predicted that the global automotive inertial measurement unit (IMU) sensors market will grow tremendously during the next four years and will post a CAGR of more than 32% by 2020. This market research analysis identifies the increasing adoption of automotive safety systems by carmakers as one of the primary growth factors for this market. The introduction of several regulations demanding passenger safety has induced automotive industries to implement advanced safety and driver assistance devices. Safety systems are fully automated and help prevent and minimize the effects of a crash. Safety systems such as anti-lock braking systems (ABS), engine stability programs, adaptive cruise control, blind spot detection and night vision systems, lane departure warning systems (LDWS), and parking assistance systems are increasingly used by automotive manufacturers. Since safety systems are in need of vehicle inertial measurement for uninterrupted operations, the increase in their adoption will subsequently lead to the growth of the IMU sensors market.

In terms of geographical regions, APAC will account for a majority of the market shares in the next four years. The growth of the passenger cars industry in the emerging economies such as China and India is identified to be the

Global outlook of the automotive throttle-by-wire-system market

Market research analysts at Technavio have predicted that the global automotive throttle-by-wire-system market will grow steadily at a CAGR of about 5% by 2020. Envisioning the development of autonomous vehicles that can drive themselves without a driver, automakers have started introducing partial autonomous features, such as automatic parking systems and steer-by-wire technologies. Several OEMs like Audi, Ford, Continental, Bosch, and Delphi have started focusing on commercializing the concept of autonomous vehicles. Even non-automotive companies such as Google and Apple, are investing in autonomous vehicle projects by leveraging their expertise in communications. Since mechanical manual controls are not sustainable in an autonomous vehicle technology environment, it will eventually lead to the increasing requirement for throttle-by-wire systems. Additionally, benefits such as reduced maintenance costs, easier to use for persons with disabilities, and faster production times will also propel the growth of this market.

This market research analysis predicts the usage of fuzzy logic controllers (FLC) in electronic throttle controller or throttle by wire systems in the coming years, and this will be one of the major trends that will gain traction in this market. FLCs operate by analyzing analog input values and can be used for the purpose of tracking the non-linear hysteretic system, which governs the electronic throttle controllers used in modern automobiles.

Global outlook of the automotive Tiptronic transmission market

Technavio’s market research analysts have predicted that the global automotive Tiptronic transmission market will grow steadily during the forecast period and will post a CAGR of almost 8% by 2020. Tiptronic transmission systems require less space and are more fuel efficient, which the analysts identify to be one of the major factors spurring market growth in the coming years. Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) mainly focus on delivering better fuel economy, which attributes to factors such as reductions in CO2 emissions and reduced operating costs. The transmission system plays a key role in deciding the fuel efficiency of a vehicle, and since modern automatic gearboxes in Tiptronic transmission systems are made of aluminum, they are quite lighter and compact than the standard transmission systems. As a result, they offer the convenience of automatic transmission systems and the fuel efficiency of manual transmission systems, which will drive the demand for their adoption during the next four years.

This market research and analysis identifies the recent increase in gear configurations for delivering higher power and torque delivery to be one of the major trends gaining traction in this market in the coming years. Technological advancements have led to the replacement of mechanical components in a powertrain system with electronic components, which enhances the overall efficiency of the vehicle since the fuel injection is electronically monitored. This will help manufacturers to forge transmission systems that can handle higher internal pressures and greater instantaneous forces,
