The increased adoption of MEMS technology by automakers is one of the major trends being witnessed in the . Micro-electro-mechanical systems are miniature systems that combine minute mechanical structures with electronic circuits. Typical individual structures have a size of a few micrometers. The MEMS sensor element is usually packaged together with an ASIC and made into a single unit. Cost reduction, size, and weight reduction, reliability, and enhanced functionalities are some of the advantages of MEMS. MEMS pressure sensors have replaced the traditional silicon-based pressure sensor in almost every automotive application, such as ABS, airbags, and in engine transmission systems.

According to Technavio analysts, one of the key factors contributing to the growth of the global automotive pressure sensors market is the growing demand for automobiles:

Global automotive pressure sensors market: Growing demand for automobiles

The growth of the global automotive pressure sensors market is dependent on the growth of the global automotive industry. The global automobile market has grown considerably in the past few years. In 2017, the global production of passenger vehicles and commercial vehicles was estimated at more than 97 million, posting a growth of 2.36% when compared with that of 2016. More than 98 million automobiles are estimated to be produced in 2018.

According to a senior analyst at Technavio for research on automotive electronics, “Growing environmental and safety concerns due to increasing vehicle population, especially in fast-growing cities in these countries, are forcing governments to impose stringent vehicle emission and safety norms that are in line with those mandated in the developed regions. Thus, more number of automobiles are being equipped with various systems such as EGR system, ABS, and airbag, which require pressure sensors for functioning. Other advanced systems such as TPMS are expected to be mandated in vehicles over the forecast period, thereby driving the demand for pressure sensors.”
