Electric Vehicle Sensor Market Research, 2031

The global electric vehicle sensor market was valued at $9.6 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $37.4 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 15.1% from 2022 to 2031.

Electric vehicle sensors detect, measure, and transmit information, which help in analyzing performance of vehicles. Sensors are devices that detect events or changes in environment and then provide a corresponding output. They sense physical input such as light, heat, motion, moisture, pressure, or any other entity, and respond by producing an output on a display or transmitting the information in electronic form for further processing. These sensors use integrated circuit (IC) fabrication technology made on silicon wafers to monitor and control chemical, physical, and process changes of an automobile.

Sensors are used to minimize fuel consumption and reduce the onboard weight of a vehicle. Electric vehicle sensors are smart sensors, which can be used to control and process temperature, coolant level, and pressure of oil in a vehicle. There are several types of sensors used in the automotive industry. These include speed sensors, coolant sensors, temperature sensors, pressure sensors, magnetic sensors, voltage sensors, and oxygen sensors. Electric vehicle sensors are one of the fastest growing technologies in the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) section, especially in North America.
