APAC held the largest market share in the Automotive Sensors Market
APAC holds the largest market share and growth in the Automotive Sensors Market, and is anticipated to reach $18.3 million by 2023 at a CAGR of 13.56%. In addition to this, the use of image sensors that aid the occupant safety, is growing in the APAC region. Along with safety and gas emission issues, infotainment system drives the automotive sensors market in this region. Similarly, blind-spot reduction, forward-collision warning, lane-departure warning and parking assist features are implemented in most automobiles in these countries. The key applications include Fuel Injection and Emission, Chassis, Engine, Powertrain, Safety & Control, Telematics, and Vehicle Security, among others.
Selected Value Chain Analysis
The advancements in technology and need of the end-users bring up the innovation in the products. The sensor fabrication varies according to the automotive model and the specificity of the applications. The researchers develop the product design so as to reduce its size and use it for multiple functions. Also, the material used for sensing and other applications such as packaging, is being developed. In this process the government standards and cost factor is considered to achieve maximum benefit in comparison to the investments made.
Considering such developments, the manufacturers produce the sensors in bulk or as per the customizations required by the auto manufacturers. The sensors based on MEMS are among those having mass production. On the other hand, the LIDARs are the ones manufactured with some specificity.
The component manufacturers can also be called as value-added resellers. The sensor chips or devices are embedded in the components by these manufacturers. The components are used by the automotive industry for auto manufacturing. The cost to the product is added at this stage.
The sensor products by Infeneon are used by Bosch to embed them in desirable components. The RADAR chips by Infeneon are embedded in sensors by Bosch, which contributes to the driver assistance systems. Moreover, the RADAR chips are packaged so as to reduce the system cost. Such manufacturing processes where the product is developed as well as the cost is reduced, increases the potential of its applications. The RADARs now are not only used in premium vehicles, but also in small cars for traffic jam assist systems, adaptive cruise control and emergency braking.
Automotive Parts Suppliers and Distributors
At this stage of the value chain of automotive sensors, the sensors are distributed to the automotive companies at different locations. They play an important role to maintain the balance between supply and demand of a product.
Automotive manufacturers need a variety of raw material for the manufacturing of vehicles for different parts such as powertrain, chassis, interiors, body and main parts. It also includes the electrical and electronics products such as audio/video devices, charging system, ignition system, sensors, switches and many more. The sensors include airbag sensors, coolant temperature sensor, crankshaft position sensor, fuel level sensor, fuel pressure sensor, O₂ sensor and many more.
All these parts are obtained from different distributors. The presence of distributors helps the automotive industry to get the raw material in time, and proceed with the uninterrupted manufacturing of vehicles. At times, the raw material is also obtained directly from the manufacturing companies.
The end-users are mainly the vehicle drivers. The automotive sensor’s performance depends on the level of safety, convenience and comfort of the driver and the others.
