The global sensor fusion market was valued at USD 2.87 billion in 2018 and is expected to reach USD 9.16 billion in 2026, growing at a CAGR of 15.4% during the forecast period. Increase in demand for sensor fusion in automotive applications for safety features and consumer electronics and growing trend of miniaturization in electronics are expected to drive the growth of the sensor fusion market.
Sensor fusion is the process of using information from several different sensors to compute an estimate of the state of a dynamic system. The resulting estimate is in some sense better than it would be if the sensors were used individually. The term better can, in this case, mean more accurate, more reliable, and more available and of higher safety integrity. The sensor fusion is required to reduce cost, system complexity and the number of components involved and to increase accuracy and confidence of sense.

Sensor Fusion has a huge application in the automotive and consumer electronics industry. It is used in a variety of automotive applications which includes advanced driver assistance system, camera system, measuring and controlling the speed of vehicle and safety systems in vehicles.
Rising demand for sensor fusion in end-use industries like consumer electronics, home automation, and healthcare, industrial, automotive, and military in emerging countries is the key factors attributed to the market growth. Furthermore, growing demand for smartphones, military wearable devices, tablet and notebook, and other electronic devices is also expected to fuel the market growth during the forecast period. On the other hand, lack of standardization of technology and increasing complexity of software is acting as a restraint to this market. However, continuous development in autonomous or driverless vehicles and growing communication technologies using IoT and growing trend of wearable devices is expected to create major growth opportunities during the forecast period.
