Global Automotive Mass Air Flow (MAF) Sensors Market 2017-2021

About Automotive Mass Air Flow (MAF) Sensors

MAF sensors are used in automobiles with fuel-injected internal combustion engine. It is used to find out the mass flow rate of the air entering the engine. The awareness of the ECU regarding the air mass will enable it to balance and deliver the required fuel mass to the engine. The report encompasses the MAF sensors that are used in vehicles with an internal combustion engine. MAF sensors are of two types: Hot wire sensors or hot film sensors, which work based on the change in electric current that is passed to balance the temperature, and vane meter sensors.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global automotive mass air flow (MAF) sensors market to grow at a CAGR of 3.02% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Automotive Mass Air Flow (MAF) Sensors Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global automotive mass air flow (MAF) sensors market: Bosch, Delphi*, Continental, DENSO, Sensata Technologies, and Hitachi.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: ACDelco, HELLA, Johnson Matthey, Molex, NGK Spark Plugs, POSiFA, and TE Connectivity.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is hot film MAF sensor. The presence of a well-equipped air fuel mixture in all the IC engines plays a significant role in obtaining higher fuel efficiency. Carburetors played a major role in petrol engines by providing the proper air-fuel mixture before the involvement of more electronic content, which led to the emergence of ECU due to the increase in the number of sensors.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is increased precision in measurement. The use of electronic switches and sensors in vehicles is rising because of the increase in the instances of computer controlled function. A sensor used for the measurement of air intake would be either MAF sensor or temperature and manifold absolute pressure (TMAP) sensor for every internal combustion engine vehicle. The vehicle engine management systems used currently require more accurate signals when compared to earlier systems to meet emission standards and to maintain drivability. A few cost-effective alternatives yield an inaccurate electronic signal output, which results in the incorrect air-to-fuel ratios.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is increase in labor cost leading to declining profit margins. For a long time, OEMs in the automotive industry value chain absorbed most warranty costs. However, over the past 5-6 years, this situation has changed. Currently, warranty and replacement cost of a particular component is being pushed on to tier-1 suppliers, who recover the same from component manufacturers. In order to optimize such costs and maintain profitability, OEMs are outsourcing component manufacturing to manufacturers in low-cost countries, such as China, Taiwan, South Korea, and India.
