MEMS sensors such as accelerometers and pressure sensors are used in cars to deliver benefits like fuel efficiency and safety. For example, a smart MEMS sensor can process engine-related data in real time and notify the problems to car occupants or the vehicle driver. Furthermore, these MEMS sensors facilitate real-time communication between engine, braking, and suspension systems of vehicles. Increasing vehicle safety concerns have led automotive manufacturers to implement MEMS sensors at a significant rate. These factors are expected to foster the growth of the global MEMS sensor market in the coming years.

The idea of self-driving cars is built on the data collected by MEMS sensors such as position sensors, accelerometer, proximity sensors, and other sensors. The sensor data is continuously collected through an integrated control system that controls the speed of the car and as a result, the effort of the driver gets reduced. Technologically advanced companies such as Tesla and Google Inc. are investing on the research & development of these cars which are currently in a testing phase. Positive outcomes from these tests are expected to accentuate the growth of the MEMS sensor market in the future. For example, in 2016, Google Inc. tested its newly developed self-driving car in the UK for a short distance. These advancements are going to increase the demand for MEMS sensors in the coming years.

Key Findings:

  • Based on applications, the automotive segment is projected to grow at a significant CAGR during the forecast period.
  • North America accounted for the largest share in the global MEMS sensor market in 2018.

Recent News:

In January 2019, an established chipmaker NXP Semiconductors announced that they would enter into a collaboration with a French chip manufacturer Kalray SA, for building computer systems for self-driving cars. Kalray SA manufactures parallel processor that will help process the MEMS sensor data, which will be used by self-driving cars to see the road. This collaboration will strengthen the emerging technology solutions portfolio of NXP Semiconductors.

  • In December 2018, STMicroelectronics launched two new image sensors for automotive driver monitoring. These image sensors will enhance the monitoring of passengers or drivers by capturing scenes from the camera, which will eliminate random external effects such as street lighting or sunlight. These images will help assess passenger comfort and the driver’s attention. These newly developed MEMS sensors will give a better positioning to STMicroelectronics's automotive shutter technology.
