Fastest Growing Market:
Need a report that reflects how COVID-19 has impacted this market and its growth?
The global automotive pressure sensors market was valued at USD 4.65 billion in 2019, and it is expected to reach a value of USD 7.48 billion by 2025, registering a CAGR of about 8.23% during the forecast period (2020-2025). As the automotive industry moves to adhere to the global environmental regulations in Europe, North America, Asia, and elsewhere, the industry is promoting efforts to boost efficiency and achieve higher control accuracy of an engine system.
Moreover, due to increase in pressure sensor applications, such as the use of a barometric pressure sensor to perform altitude correction when driving at high altitudes, pressure sensors are used in automotive to achieve high accuracy at a low price.
Factors, such as the increasing focus on passenger safety, miniaturization leading to an increased range of applications across the industry, stringent government regulations concerning emissions, and security owing to the increasing number of vehicles, are majorly driving the automotive pressure sensors market.
Additionally, the automotive industry is the biggest and the oldest market for pressure sensors. Therefore, powertrain applications account for more than 50% of the pressure sensors business, followed by safety, with tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) being the most significant single automotive application.

Key Market Trends
Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS) Expected to be the Most Significant Application
TPMS utilizes pressure monitoring sensors within each tire that monitor specific pressure levels and send the data to the centralized control module. TPMS was mandated in the United States and the European Union, in 2007 and 2014 respectively. The law came about as a result of over 100 deaths in the late 1990s, which were attributed to vehicles running with underinflated tires. There are two types of TPMS, direct (dTPMS) and indirect (iTPMS).
TPMS is getting smart with the advent of connected cars or autonomous vehicles technology. The technology is increasing the adoption of TPMS, as it provides real-time data on vehicle tire pressure and also offers critical information on tire temperature. High tire temperatures can indicate an excess of friction caused by misalignment of the wheels, which can also contribute to early tire wear and less safe driving. Hence, safety awareness among individuals is another factor driving the increased adoption of TPMS.
Several manufacturers are manufacturing TPMS, based on Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) communication standards. BLE helps in cutting down on development, qualification, and logistical costs while allowing over-the-air firmware updates and other general maintenance that would otherwise not be possible. BLE ensures that TPMS sensors are constantly kept up-to-date, secured, and optimized.
In Europe, the European Tyre and Rubber Manufacturers' Association recently praised the European Parliament committee for endorsing revised European Union tire pressure monitoring systems rules. The regulation updates existing vehicle safety rules to extend TPMS requirements to light and heavy commercial vehicles, trailers, and buses.

Asia-Pacific Expected to Hold the Largest Market Share
The Asia-Pacific region has been home to the manufacturers that provide sensors, with China, India, Japan, and Taiwan being the major contributors. The growth in Asia-Pacific is attributed to the development of the automotive industry in countries, such as China and India.
Also, the Asia-Pacific region has been the largest contributor to the automotive industry’s growth over the past few years. The growing economy and advancements in the regulatory framework in the region have also helped the passenger car sensors market boom in the region.
The major trend driving the Asia-Pacific automotive sensor market is miniaturization and improved communication capabilities, which, in turn, enable their integration into vehicles without interfering with the basic functionalities of the vehicle. Increasing automotive light vehicle production is also driving the pressure sensor market in Asia-Pacific. Other factors, such as low cost, compact size, ecofriendly nature, and bulk manufacturing capability, are the key factors helping the automotive sensors market grow.
Recently, with the advent of connected cars and automated driverless vehicles, the demand for technologically-advanced sensors, which have better efficiency and reliability in terms of functioning, has increased substantially.
Also, rise in government grants to improve industrial infrastructure, along with the availability of cheap labor and raw materials, has been an additional key factor to substantially increase the production of automotive sensors. Increased research and development in the sensor industry is creating opportunities for technological advancements that open up new prospects for sensor applications.

The automotive pressure sensors market is consolidated, with few major players holding the majority of the share in the market. Although, it can be assumed that almost all pressure sensor manufacturers serve as automotive suppliers, the barrier to entry for prospective automotive suppliers is quite high. Organizations, like Robert Bosch, have aggregated production volume of automotive, as well as consumer markets, to reduce cost and further increase its competitive advantage. Other players, like Infineon, Sensata, DENSO, and Melexis, are mainly focused on the automotive sector, with vertical integration being a common trend in the sector.
April 2019 - DENSO, the world’s second-largest mobility supplier, announced an investment of USD 1.6 billion to strengthen development and production of Automotive Electrification Products and Systems. This has been done to support its aggressive development and production of electrified automotive products, systems, and technologies.
November 2018 - Infineon Technologies AG strengthened its long-term partnership with DENSO Corporation, a global supplier of advanced automotive technology, systems, and components, to bolster its automotive business.
