The Opportunity of Sensors in the Automotive Electronics Industry

The Opportunity of Sensors in the Automotive Electronics Industry

Under the trend where everything is connected to the Internet, the cost share of automotive applications in the electronic industry is also rising fast. This is attributed mainly to increasing needs for safer, more environmentally friendly and comfortable applications on telematics platforms. Active and passive safety systems like ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance System) have recently been the area of focus for automakers. Fueled by growing popularity of electric vehicles and IoV (Internet of Vehicle), the demand for associated devices and equipment is also on the upward trajectory. To catch the rising tide of market trends towards vehicle automation and intelligence, electronic applications are expected to become more widespread in the automotive industry. This report provides an overview of the automotive semiconductor industry and a description of electronics development trends in the global automotive industry with an aim to provide an insight into opportunities of automotive semiconductors.
