Automotive Powertrain Sensors: Trends & Forecasts to 2021

Abstract | Table of Contents

Two major concerns for automotive engineers are how best to maximise fuel economy and to reduce emissions. Powertrain sensors, which measure temperature, pressure, rotational speed and other vehicle performance parameters, are central to both.

There is also a trend in the powertrain sensor industry toward higher temperature and electromagnetic compatibility requirements, due largely to the increasing deployment of smaller engines.

This exclusive report from ABOUT Automotive focuses on the following key areas:

Report coverage

Chapter two sets out product trends and forecast fitment levels for various types of powertrain sensors used in passenger cars in each major vehicle-producing region through 2021.

Chapters three through eight examine major trends and provide market estimates for Temperature, Pressure, Speed, Position and Exhaust sensors.

Chapter nine lists major manufacturers of automotive sensors.
