Auto-Occupant Sensing Systems May Chisel $2 Billion By 2022

If the driver doesn’t know how many people are in the car, the vehicle itself has a need to know so it can do its thing, whatever that may be beyond stop and go. An automotive occupancy sensing system in combination with airbag deployment systems keep an eye on passengers and drivers alike using infrared sensors or ultrasound.


According to Persistence Market Research’s global study on automotive occupant sensing, growth of the current and future market depends on the growth of highly developed sensors as well as sensor systems. The sensor technology is very important in emerging automotive systems.

Automotive occupant sensing systems are crucial in perceiving the existence of a passenger or driver settled inside a vehicle and are also needed to manage the airbag activator systems. The occupant sensing system identifies the presence as well as the position of an individual. It can disable or enable or control the inflation of the airbag during an accident. Sufficient information facilitates the airbag activator control system to operate reliably.


In reference to Persistence Market Research’s global study on automotive occupant sensing systems, it is stated that the market is expected to grow by means of a 6.9% CAGR during the assessment period of 2017-2022. The worldwide market is also anticipated to reach a market value of above US$ two billion through the end of the forecast period.
