DUBLIN, Aug. 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Global Automotive Sensor Market Demand, Supply and Opportunities, 2015-2022" report to their offering.

The global automotive sensor market has been largely benefiting from the changing paradigms in government regulations and end-users perspective towards enhanced safety in automobiles. In spite of a turbulence caused by the global economic slowdown of 2008, the automotive market has been able to gain back the pre-crisis annual growth rate by 2014. With several driving trends such as miniaturization, growing urban population, increasing environment concerns, and rising disposable income of middle class population, the global automotive sensor market is poised to grow over $13 billion by 2022 at an estimated CAGR of 9.20% through the forecast period. The global passenger cars sensor market was dominated by medium end vehicles from companies such as Nissan, Hyundai, and Honda among others. While sensors from medium end vehicles generated revenue in 2014, the compound annual growth rate is expected to be the highest for electric vehicle sensors, through 2015 to 2022. 

While APAC will continue to lead the global market through the forecast period, significant revenue flow are expected from Europe and America. Optical sensors will continue to be the largest revenue generating sensor type. Motion sensors have been identified as the fastest growing sensor type with a CAGR of 11.03% through the forecast period. The increasing demand of electric vehicles, owing to its potential to cut down consumption of imported fuel and being environmental friendly makes it the fastest growing vehicle type for automotive sensors globally.
