Sensor Report | Global Markets for Automotive Sensor Technologies

The automotive industry is being revolutionized by technological innovation. The performance of vehicles, safety and comfort are being improved by using automotive sensors in various systems including air bags, tire pressure monitoring and vehicle stabilization control. Most of these innovations have been through improved electronics and advanced sensors, using technologies like silicon micro-engineering, thick film, capacitive, variable reluctance, optical and radar.  New applications are emerging particularly in emission control and safety areas, apart from the sensors already being used for oil pressure, coolant temperature, vehicle speed and fuel level.  The sensors field has become more challenging regarding robustness, reliability, quality and finally cost.  This report will look at the various sensors used in an automobile, the global and regional market for these sensors, and their applications.

In today’s automobile industry, systems controlled by sensors have become an integral part, and this has made most electro-mechanical devices more refined and more efficient with their application.  The development and deployment of a number of sensing technologies support and enable the introduction of advanced electronic systems, although there are challenges regarding robustness, reliability, quality and cost.  Although new sensors are emerging to improve system functionality and enable future advanced systems, existing sensors will also continue to find new applications, building upon their past record of performance.  This report will study the areas in the production of an automobile that have advanced with the use of sensors, and the markets for these sensors in various applications and regions.

For this report, automobiles are considered to include all passenger cars, light commercial vehicles (LCVs), heavy commercial vehicles (HCVs) and buses.

2016 Lighting Fixtures

Commercialization of LED fixtures to be significant
The commercialization of light emitting diode (LED) lighting is also having a significant impact on the industry. LEDs are longer-lived and more energyefficient than incandescent lamps but currently only account for a small share of demand. LED-based lighting fixtures are expected to provide especially strong growth through 2016 due to the rapid pace of technological advances in the LED light sources which will make them more energy-efficient, brighter and more affordable. In addition, while some LEDs can be used in place of traditional incandescent bulbs, lighting fixture manufacturers are also developing fixtures which are specifically designed for LEDs and help to optimize their performance.

Lighting fixture products include nonportable and portable fixtures, as well as separately sold parts and accessories such as aftermarket lamp ballasts, fittings, switches, globes and shades. Demand for lighting fixtures is dominated by nonportable fixtures, which accounted for nearly two-thirds of total lighting fixture demand in 2011. Nonportable fixtures derive their dominant position from widespread use in the full range of construction and vehicular applications. Demand for nonportable fixtures is also expected to post the strongest gains through 2016, benefiting from the rebound in construction activity and vehicle production.

Residential market to post strongest growth rate
The residential market is expected to post the strongest gains, nearly doubling between 2011 and 2016, as new residential construction activity rebounds. While demand in new housing will provide the larger share of growth, the residential repair and improvement segment will also rise from low 2011 levels, supported by both increasing housing sales and greater consumer spending.

US shipments of lighting fixtures to lag those of overseas manufacturers
Growth of US lighting fixture shipments will lag demand over the forecast period, as a significant portion of additional demand is expected to be supplied by overseas manufacturers, especially those in China. In 2011, Chinese firms accounted for over one-half of US lighting fixture imports and supplied almost one-fourth of US lighting fixture demand. Other important sources of US lighting fixture imports include Canada and Mexico.

Construction in Thailand – Key Trends and Opportunities to 2016

The Thai construction industry increased in value at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.99% during the review period (2007–2011). This was supported by significant private and public investments in infrastructural, residential, commercial and industrial construction projects. Residential construction was the largest market in the industry in 2011. However, the residential construction market only recorded a CAGR of 1.24% during the review period. Coupled with the adverse affects of the global financial crisis, political unrest caused the Thai residential construction industry to underperform during 2007–2009. The introduction of government-initiated tax breaks and stimulus packages in 2009, compounded by elections in 2011, helped conditions to improve in the residential construction market. Many projects that were cancelled or postponed in 2009, resumed during 2010–2011. There were 11,000 new launches of projects pertaining to residential construction in Q2 2011, an increase of 9.6% from the previous quarter. Floods in Q3 2011 led many buyers to consider purchasing condominiums rather than landed property, as they provide better protection against floods. The residential construction market is projected to post a CAGR of 3.58% over the forecast period (2012–2016).
