Automotive Position Sensor Market
Automotive Position Sensor Market


Global Automotive Position Sensor Market is expected to grow at a significant rate of around 14% during the forecast period. Position sensors are used in automobiles to determine the steering wheel position, pedal positions, seat positions, and the position of various valves, knobs, and actuators. These sensors use a variety of technologies, such as wiper-arm potentiometers, optical reflection or imaging, and Hall-effect sensors, to detect their location. With continuous advancements and innovations in technology, the demand for more convenient and easy driving options will lead to increasing demand for electronic sensors in the automotive market. The growing inclination of consumers toward alternative fuel vehicle to reduce GHG emissions and surging consumer demand for vehicle safety are some other factors propelling the demand for automotive sensors across the globe. For instance, In USA registrations for new EVs soared 60% in the first three months of 2022 even though new car registrations were actually down 18% on the whole, Automotive News and Car and Driver reported, citing Experian data. EVs now account for 4.6% of all passenger vehicles being sold in the U.S.

Analog Devices Inc., Broadcom Inc., Bosch Sensortec Gmbh, Bourns Inc., Continental AG, CTS Corporation, BorgWarner Inc., DENSO CORPORATION, HELLA GmbH & Co, and Infineon Technologies AG. are some of the key players in the market. Several M&As along with partnerships have been undertaken by these players to facilitate customers with hi-tech and innovative products/technologies.
