Jan. 18, 2016—The recently released Global Automotive Emission Sensor Market 2015-2019 report from Research and Markets found that the global automotive emission sensors market is expected to reach around $13 billion by 2019.
Significant research and development on technologies that reduce emission has been done due to increasing environmental and health concerns. This research has led to the development of gas sensors, which can monitor and control vehicle emission.
Emission sensors are used in all types of vehicles with oxygen sensors among the most widely used.
To calculate the market size for sensors, the market research analysts have considered revenues generated from the sale of Oxygen and Nitrogen Oxide sensors for passenger cars, light commercial and heavy commercial vehicles.
The growth in the automotive emissions sensors market can be attributed to the implementation of tougher and stricter emission norms across the world.
The increased demand has led to the development of oxygen sensors that come with a heating element that makes sensors react as soon as the engine is ignited. The smart sensors come with a built-in heater that heats the sensor up to the required operating temperature. This action decreases the reaction time and reduces contact of exhaust gases with ceramic bults. This method is expected to increase the lifetime of sensors because they are less prone to contaminants.
