The global automotive sensors market size will grow at a CAGR of 7% during 2017-2021. The market’s growth momentum will accelerate during the forecast period because of the steady increase in year-over-year growth. This industry research report identifies Bosch, Continental, Delphi Automotive, DENSO, and Sensata Technologies as the key vendors in the global automotive sensors market. A comprehensive analysis of this market is also presented by application (powertrain and engine control, chassis control, and others), by vehicle type (passenger cars and commercial vehicles), and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Overview of the global automotive sensors market

According to Technavio’s market research analysis, the introduction of stringent emission norms will be one of the major factors that will have a positive impact on the growth of the global automotive sensors market during the forecast period. Our market research analysts predict that in terms of units, this market will grow at a CAGR of about 7% by 2021. With the growing health and environmental concerns, governments across the globe are focusing on implementing stringent emission norms. Since emission sensors play a major role in in decreasing the emission of toxic gases from vehicles, the introduction of such automotive emissions, will drive the growth of this global market.

In terms of geographic regions, APAC will be the major revenue contributor to the automotive sensors market throughout the forecast period. China, India, Japan, and South Korea are the developing countries in APAC with significant growth potential for the passenger car segment. This induces automotive manufacturers to invest in technology and mass production systems, which in turn, drives the demand for automotive sensors in this region.
