Growing Application in Electric Vehicles Fuels Demand for Magnetic Field Sensors

"Magnetic field sensors have witnessed a considerable rise in adoption over the past few years, beating the competition from micro switches, reed switches, and potentiometers," says an analyst at TMR. The integration of electronics on-chip into these sensors for more intelligence per unit area on the basis of size, cost, and robustness has fueled their demand across the world. Apart from this, the increase in embedded measurement functions for automated intelligent control is also boosting the application of these sensors significantly.

The growing application of these sensors in electric vehicles is the key driving force behind their escalating demand. To cater to the soaring demand for features that enhance the stability, safety, performance, handling, comfort, and convenience of a vehicle, these sensors are widely utilized in electronic stability control systems, anti-lock braking systems, and electric power steering. These sensors also find application as rotating speed sensors in automotive speedometers, bicycle wheels, electronic ignition systems, and gear teeth. Brushless DC motors and hybrid electric vehicles are the key users of magnetic field sensors in the automotive industry.

Price Erosion and Declining Shipments may Hamper Market's Growth

Overall, the prospects in magnetic field sensors look strong and moving upward; however, the price erosion and the decline in the unit shipments are likely to impact negatively on the sales of these sensors. The neck-to-neck competition between manufacturers, coupled with heightened demand for high-volume applications at minimal prices, is shrinking their profit margins and resulting in a considerable decrease in the average selling prices of these sensors.

This factor is anticipated to hamper the market's growth further over the coming years. However, the growing application of these sensors in consumer electronics and appliances is anticipated to present potential growth opportunities to manufacturers in the near future.

Magnetic Field Sensors to Continue to Find Extensive Application in Automotive Industry

The global opportunity in the magnetic field sensors market is rising significantly, analysts at TMR observe. As per their estimates, the market will rise from US$2.0 bn in 2014 to US$3.5 bn by 2021, expanding at a CAGR of 8.30% between 2015 and 2021. North America will maintain its position as the key contributor to the overall market, with its revenue amounting to nearly US$1.4 bn by 2021.
