This market research report identifies players like Nissan, Ford, and Volkswagen to be the key vendors in the global automotive biosensors market. This market research report presents a comprehensive analysis of the key market trends, drivers, and challenges that influence market growth. It also outlines the market shares for key regions such as Europe, North America, and ROW.

Overview of the global automotive biosensors market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global automotive biosensors market to grow impressively at a CAGR of around 19% between 2016 and 2020. According to the industry analysis, over 90% of the road accidents can be attributed to driver's error including speed and drink-driving. The advent of biosensors in vehicles boosts driving abilities by aiding the facial monitoring system through which the driver's eye movements can be monitored, and an audio warning is given to warn the driver. These devices are primarily designed to gauge the health parameters of the driver. They monitor and detect the driver's distraction and drowsiness. Factors such as the connected car concept, telecom infrastructure development, the shift toward autonomous cars, extending the scope of the connected car and telematics services, and the establishment of Wi-Fi, Bluetooth connectivity in cars are boosting the growth prospects for automotive biosensors market.

As per Technavio’s market analysis, the need to curb road fatalities during night hours is a top priority in the domain of public safety. According to NHTSA report in 2015, passenger vehicle occupants' fatality rate stands three times higher in the night or during the dark hours. Such strong data backing the night time road fatality rates has propelled several OEMs to come up with the technological trend of combining imaging sensors with LiDAR. The combination of sensor technologies includes multiple biosensors such as alcohol-odor detection sensors and eye alertness tracking sensors with LiDAR sensing technologies. Such integrations have produced positive results in vehicle guidance in a fully autonomous mode and extremely dark conditions.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The competition among vendors in the automotive biosensors market is high as it is comparatively less penetrated.  Several automotive OEMs and Tier-I players are investing in technologies to introduce new dimensions related to health monitoring in the vehicle. Vehicle OEMs have been working toward connected car concept with wearables. They are also expanding their operations and developing biosensing capabilities in their vehicles for the purpose of healthcare. Also, the vendors are providing entire biosensing capability suite as a bundled offering to gain the interest of the potential buyers.

Leading vendors in the market are -

  • Nissan
  • Ford
  • Volkswagen

Other prominent vendors in the automotive biosensors market include Audi, Medtronic, Cadillac, Daimler, Opel, Jaguar Land Rover, and Freer Logic.

Geographical segmentation and analysis of the automotive biosensors market

  • Europe
  • North America
  • ROW

North America is the largest market for automotive biosensors and is continue to dominate the market over the predicted period. The move toward the autonomous vehicle and the availability of a well-developed telecom infrastructure poses a positive technology environment for the uptake of biosensors in the vehicles. The US-based vehicle OEMs and technology development companies are also shifting toward the commercialization of biosensors. For instance, Ford is working on maximizing the utilization of wearables for health vital parameters monitoring in a vehicle.

Growth drivers, challenges, and upcoming trends: Growing shift towards autonomous vehicles

With almost all the OEMs and Tier-I players moving towards automated driving, several aggressive steps are being taken toward achieving level 3 and level 4 in vehicle automation, which has propelled the use of biosensors in the autonomous driving sensor suites. Companies such as Delphi, Continental, Bosch, Audi, Mercedes-Benz, and Google are shifting toward the autonomous concept, which has accelerated the uptake of automotive biosensors. Also, the growing implementation of ADAS systems in these unmanned and self-driving vehicles will drive growth prospects for biosensor manufacturers in the coming years.

Automotive biosensors are miniature devices including cameras, sensors, and monitoring devices that can measure vital signs such as heart rate, pulse rate, oxygen content, driver drowsiness, attention, and anxiety. They are strategically placed on the steering wheel, seats, seat belts, head rests, dashboard, gear lever knob, or the rear view mirror. The sensors measure the data and if found critical, can communicate the necessary authorities for further assistance. In certain cases, the sensors can also detect the inebriated condition of drivers and can immobilize the vehicle.
