Outlook of the exhaust sensors market

Extensive research carried out by the analysts at Technavio has shown that the global exhaust sensors market is expected to witness a slow growth at a CAGR of close to 1% over the forecast period. With the increasing penetration of diesel engine vehicles, the exhaust sensors market is likely to have a positive outlook in the coming years. Diesel engines expel a significant amount of particulate matter compared to gasoline engines. These gasses have a severe impact on the environment and health of individuals, leading to an augmented demand for emission sensors, exhaust gas recirculation, and diesel particulate filters to limit the emission levels. Fuel efficiency and the low cost of diesel are factors that are increasing the demand for diesel vehicles and sales of diesel vehicles across the globe, which will, in turn, translate into the increasing adoption of exhaust sensors during the predicted period.

The existing vendors in the global exhaust sensor market intend to expand their market shares through mergers and acquisitions. For example, Delphi Automotive acquired Antaya Technologies and Unwired Holdings in 2014 to increase its business operations in the emerging markets. Moreover, in October 2014, Sensata Technologies acquired Schrader International, a global leader in tire pressure monitoring sensors (TPMS), to expand its sensor product line. Such M&As will propel the growth prospects for this market over the next four years.

Outlook of the global PIR motion sensor market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global passive infrared (PIR) motion sensor market to grow at a steady CAGR of around 11% during the forecast period. The increasing military and defense expenditure of various countries is likely to drive the PIR motion sensor market during the predicted period. Since these sensors are primarily used for target discrimination, they can detect and localize moving targets. Many countries in South Asia, Eastern Europe, and the Middle East have increased their military budget for R&D activities to develop more equipment and to upgrade their existing detecting and tracking technologies. This increase in the military spending is likely to create a demand for PIR sensors.

The recent increase in public construction projects is expected to drive market growth until the end of 2020. Recently, it has been observed that new construction projects like public buildings, private residences, office buildings, shopping complexes, and airports are installing systems such as automatic doors, escalators, and automatic taps, which deploy PIR motion sensors.  This increase in the construction of public buildings and office buildings, which require PIR motion sensors for the efficient functioning of escalators and automatic doors, will result in the augmented adoption of such sensors during the estimated period.

Application-based segmentation of the PIR motion sensor market

  • Security application
  • Commercial application
  • Smart home application
  • Military and defense application

The security application segment currently dominates this market and is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 7% until 2020. PIR sensors are highly cost effective and are considered to
