Automotive Pedal Sensor: Introduction

  • Technological advancements in the automotive industry have enabled OEMs and aftermarket players to equip vehicles with electronic braking systems. Various types of sensors are being incorporated in electronic braking systems, which are responsible for detecting the position of brake pedals and transmit signal to engine control unit (ECU) for taking appropriate actions.
  • Stringent government regulations and increase in safety awareness are driving automakers to incorporate various systems, such as pedal position sensing, clutch pedal position sensing, accelerator pedal position sensing, etc. which use position sensors, thereby driving the market for automotive pedal sensors

Key Drivers of Global Automotive Pedal Sensor Market

  • Need for fuel-efficient technologies is on the rise, owing to government rules and regulations pertaining to pollution control. Automakers have started to incorporate sensor-based accelerators in vehicles for increasing safety while driving. This, in turn, have created a demand for accelerator pedal sensor modules. Furthermore, vehicle production in countries such as China and India is expected to increase, thus driving the need for accelerator position pedals (APP). These factors are projected to augment the growth of the global automotive pedal sensor market.
  • In the traditional mechanical braking system, most of the kinetic energy is wasted while applying brakes. In case of electrical braking system incorporating pedal sensors, this kinetic energy can be used to charge vehicle battery through the application of regenerative braking. Such system are in high demand in electrical vehicles. Moreover, friction or mechanical brakes can be used in vehicles as a failsafe in case regenerative braking fails. The increase in demand for electrical brake system is fueling the automotive pedal sensor market growth.

Passenger Vehicle Segment to Dominate Global Market

  • Position sensors are used to monitor and measure changes in position from a defined reference position in various electronic systems. Position sensors are used in various position systems incorporated in passenger and commercial vehicles, such as accelerator pedal position sensing, clutch pedal position sensing, and brake pedal position sensing systems. Owing to stringent regulations pertaining to safety, automakers have been mandated to incorporate safety systems in their vehicles. These factors are driving the automotive pedal sensor market for passenger vehicle.

EMC (Electromagnetic Compatibility) Compliance to Hamper Market

  • Continuous advancements in technology and improvements in lifestyle, owing to increase in disposable income, have generated the demand for fast and luxurious vehicles. For instance, the demand for connected vehicles is on the rise, as they offer navigation, parking assist, ADAS, and other systems for increasing safety and catering to customer needs. Moreover, automakers are adopting electronic braking systems over mechanical braking systems, which ensure quick and accurate braking. The electronic braking system automatically senses position of pedals with the help of sensors. Sensors are continuously generating data and cause electromagnetic interference (EMI). Such sensors are needed to comply with EMC regulations for public safety. This hampers the growth of the global automotive pedal sensor market.

Asia Pacific to Lead Global Market

  • Increase in research and development has fueled the adoption of electrical vehicles in the Asia Pacific region. Rise in domestic investment and FDI from various countries is driving the development of automotive industry in countries like China, India, and South Korea.
  • Vehicles equipped with APP, regenerative braking system, and anti-lock braking system are in demand, owing to increase in consumer interest. All these factors are anticipated to fuel the expansion of the automotive pedal sensor market in the Asia Pacific region.
