Outlook for Safety and Powertrain Sensors

  • Richard DixonEmail author


In the past 15-20 years, sensors have grown organically and reached relatively stable penetration rates with very low growth, at least in the mature automotive markets. Any new stimulus therefore comes from the adoption of safety and basic powertrain sensors and regulations and mandates that force adoption to full penetration in different regions. The current paper provides a 5-year snapshot of the market opportunity for safety and powertrain applications for the silicon sensors based on Micro Electro Mechanical System (MEMS) technology and also magnetic sensors used in position, rotation and angle measurements, and looks at the underlying drivers in detail.
