Based on sensor type, the report categorizes automotive exhaust gas sensors into the following segments:

  • NOx sensors
  • O2 sensors
  • MAP-MAF sensors
  • Differential pressure sensors
  • Temperature sensors
  • Particulate matter sensors

The top three revenue-generating sensor segments in the global automotive exhaust sensors market are discussed below:

NOx sensors

The demand for NOx sensors is driven by the stringent emission standards that are mandated by governments across the world. Also, the shift in the focus of automotive manufacturers toward developing engines that significantly reduce fuel consumption is also driving the demand for NOx sensors,” says Siddharth Jaiswal, one of the lead analysts at Technavio for automotive electronics research.

NOx sensors play a major role in the selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system by monitoring NOx emissions. This helps in the compliance of stringent emission norms in place to curb the greenhouse effect. Additionally, the average selling price (ASP) of these sensors is expected to decrease during the forecast period, which will increase the adoption of these sensors.

O2 sensors

O2 sensors have become a standard issue in almost all vehicles since their launch in 1976. With the introduction of on-board diagnostics, the number of O2 sensors used in a single vehicle has increased, leading to increased adoption. Different kinds of O2 sensors are used to monitor the air-fuel (A-F) mixture and the converter’s operating efficiency. These sensors help in improving fuel economy, maintaining peak engine performance, reducing exhaust emissions, and minimizing the risk associated with catalytic converters in vehicles. The fall in their ASP will drive their adoption during the forecast period.

Manifold absolute pressure (MAP)- mass air flow (MAF) sensors

The electronic control units in vehicles aids in the enhancement of engine operation and ensures effective exhaust gas treatment by precisely regulating the air-fuel ratio. Manifold absolute pressure and mass air flow sensors are extensively used in the electronic control units to aid the process,” says Siddharth.

Both the sensors work by sending a signal to the electronic control unit (ECU), which is used to calculate the amount of air aspirated by the engine. The popularity of MAP-MAF sensors in putting a clear check on emissions, thereby driving for their increased adoption.

The top vendors highlighted by Technavio’s research analysts in this report are:

  • Robert Bosch
  • Continental
  • Delphi Automotive
  • Sensata Technologies
