Global Automotive Cabin Air Quality Sensor Market 2017-2021

About Automotive Cabin Air Quality Sensor

An air quality sensor continuously monitors a vehicle's cabin and sends signals to the filtration system. Air quality sensors guide the opening and closing of filtration systems to maintain standard air quality in the cabin. Sensor signals are compared to a set standard to calculate the pollution levels inside a vehicle. The vehicle cabin's air quality is monitored by two sensors, namely the hydrocarbon sensor and the nitrogen oxide sensor. Hydrocarbon sensors help in detecting gasoline exhaust fumes, whereas nitrogen oxide sensors help in detecting diesel exhaust fumes or nitrous oxide fumes.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global automotive cabin air quality sensor market to grow at a CAGR of 8.64% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Automotive Cabin Air Quality Sensor Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global automotive cabin air quality sensor market: Amphenol, Hanon Systems, Sensata Technologies, and Valeo.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: ChemiSense, City Technology, FIGARO, Paragon, Prodrive Technologies, SENSEAIR, Sensirion, SGX Sensortech, Standard Motor Products, and UST Umweltsensortechnik.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is volvo’s CleanZone air filtration technology. Volvo's CleanZone air filtration technology shields passengers from pollutants. The interior air quality system (IAQS) is one of the features of the technology. It is Volvo’s largest automatic multi-filter. Active charcoal within the filter removes pollutants and foul odor.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is increased long-distance travels. Long-distance travels lead to increased adoption of air quality sensors in passenger cars and commercial vehicles. Air quality sensors are incorporated in vehicles that contain automatic HVAC systems. HVAC systems are standard fitments in passenger cars and multiple models of CVs. LCVs, too, are characterized by a high adoption rate of HVAC systems. Increased long-distance travels and increased preference for comfort traveling aid toward the increased adoption of air quality sensors. In the US, a majority of the population goes for one or more long-distance trip each year. The increase in pleasure trips led to demand for luxury cars. For daily commuting, cars are highly sought-after in regions like the US.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is high cost of HVAC systems. The high cost associated with HVAC systems is directly proportional to the increased cost associated with air quality sensors. HVAC systems assist in reducing humidity and ventilation. They help maintain controlled temperatures inside automotive cabins. HVAC systems provide pollution-free air flow at a preferred temperature with reduced energy consumption. The air quality sensor located near the air inlets detects changes in air compositions and sends signals to the HVAC control unit. The control unit immediately responds to the signal and closes activation, recirculation, and ventilation flaps.
