Global Automotive Emission Sensor Market 2015-2019
Market landscape of the automotive emission sensors
Pollution from automobiles has been a critical issue across the globe with nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide acting as the two principle gases causing air pollution, thereby increasing environment and health concerns. It has led to significant research and development on technologies that reduce emission. It has in turn led to the development of gas sensors, which can monitor and control vehicle emission.
Automotive emission sensors is widely used in all types of automobiles from passenger cars to heavy commercial vehicles. Oxygen sensors and Nitrogen oxide sensors are the widely used sensors in modern vehicles today. Among these gas sensors, adoption of oxygen sensors is found in almost all automobiles manufactured today.
Market segmentation covered in the report:
Research scope of the global automatic emission sensor market
To calculate the market size, Technavios market research analysts have considered revenues generated from the sale of the aforementioned sensors for passenger cars, light commercial vehicles (LCVs), and heavy commercial vehicles. The global automotive emission sensors market is expected to reach around USD 13 billion by 2019.
The growth in the automotive emissions sensors market can be attributed to the implementation of tougher and stricter emission norms across the world. The increase in auto sales across the globe fosters the growing adoption of emission sensors in vehicles. With countries like China and India adopting emission norms equivalent to US and EU, utilization of emission sensors in these regions is expected to increase in the next four years.
Upcoming trends, drivers, and challenges
Increased demand for smart emission sensors has led to the development of oxygen sensors which come with a heating element. It makes sensors react immediately as soon as the engine is ignited. These smart sensors come with a in-built heater, which heats up the sensors to the requiired operating temperature. This action decreases the reaction time and reduces contact of exhaust gases with ceramic bulbs. This trend is expected to result in a gradual increase in the life time of sensors as they are less prone to contaminants.
The increased demand for more reliable technology by customers and automobile manufactures has resulted in manufacturers investing on R&D to develop technologically advanced emission sensors to meet emission standards and demands of OEMs and customers. For instance, narrowband O2 sensors are the widely used sensors in vehicles today.
However, the increasing demand for BEVs will have a negative impact on the automotive emission sensor market with an increasing adoption in ICE and to some extent in hybrid electric vehicles in the leading markets.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Automotive Emission Sensor Market 2015-2019
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Automotive Emission Sensor Market: Bosch, Denso, Tenneco and Faurecia
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Delphi, Continental, Hyundai KEFICO, NGK Spark Plug, and Sensata.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The number of electronic devices used in vehicles has increased significantly, and the dependency of vehicles on electronic components has increased rapidly over the past few years. The number of sensors used in vehicles has increased as they are used to monitor temperature, gas emissions, voltage, current, vacuum, and torque. OEMs are now focusing more on designing and constructing vehicles that use electronic components to control the vehicle mechanism.”
According to the report, diesel engines emit a significant amount of particulate matter – NOx, HC, CO, and toxic air pollutants – compared to a gasoline engine. These gases will have a severe impact on the environment and health. As they emit significant amounts of toxic gases, emission sensors like O2 sensors, NOx sensors, and technologies like exhaust gas recirculation, SCR, and diesel particulate filters are used to limit emission levels.
Further, the report states that automotive emission sensors need to aid the emission standards set by different regulatory bodies across the globe. Emission norms are continually updated to further reduce the emission levels of vehicles and thereby increase fuel economy. These pose a direct challenge to emission sensor manufacturers as new sensors based on new regulations have to be designed and developed.
