Light vehicle production is expected to grow at a CAGR (compound annual growth rate) of 3.6% over the period 2005 to 2010. Over the same period, Strategy Analytics expects automotive sensor revenues to grow by 9.8% CAGR, as carmakers respond to tightening environmental, fuel mileage, and safety legislation, as well as consumer expectations, by introducing electronically controlled innovations for enhanced performance, comfort, and convenience.
"Vehicle makers are using sophisticated electronic systems to create safer, more fuel efficient, and environmentally friendly vehicles, creating demand for a higher number of sensors per vehicle," says Mark Fitzgerald, Senior Analyst, Automotive Practice.
