The applications of motor vehicle sensors include engine and drivetrain, safety and security, and emission control applications along with other smaller applications. Engine and drivetrain application is the largest application segment and accounted for 34% share of the total motor vehicle sensors market in 2012. This segment is expected to reach a value exceeding USD 8.2 billion by 2018. Safety and security application is expected to remain the fastest growing segment for this market, and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 12.9% during the forecast period.

There are different types of sensors used in motor vehicles depending on their end use. The major product segments of motor vehicle sensors include – physical property sensors, process variable sensors, proximity and positioning sensors, chemical property sensors, and other sensors. Physical property sensors are widely deployed in motor vehicles since they are used to measure vital physical properties such as force, speed, and vibration among others. Physical property sensors is the largest product segment of the motor vehicle sensors market and is expected to exceed a value of USD 8 billion by 2018, at a CAGR of 12.1% during the forecast period.

Proximity sensors are used in motor vehicles for detecting the presence of any nearby objects without any physical contact, while positioning sensors help in detecting the exact position of the vehicle. Proximity and positioning sensors is the fastest growing segment in this market, registering a CAGR of 12.6% during the same forecast period. High growth of this segment is the result of increased focus on vehicle safety from accidents and thefts.

Some of the major players manufacturing motor vehicle sensors include Bosch, Denso, Valeo, Continental AG, Delphi Automotives, and Hitachi Automotives, among others. Bosch was leading the global motor vehicle sensors market with 13.0% share followed by Denso in 2011.
