Perception Sensors Sector: Growth Driver and Challenges

Growth Driver

  • Growing Investment by Key Players - Escalating investments by key market players to develop sophisticated technologies to enhance passenger experience is assessed to provide ample growth opportunities to the perception sensors market.
  • Growing Demand for Electric Vehicles - Due to continued technological advances and increasing public awareness of their benefits, the use of electric vehicles is expected to increase in the coming years. The transition to electric vehicles will increase demand for self-driving cars. Self-driving electric vehicles offer a variety of benefits such as improved safety, increased mobility, reduced environmental impact, and increased efficiency. Autonomous electric vehicles can reduce dependence on non-renewable energy sources such as fossil fuels.  These two technologies will grow together, as demand for electric vehicles rapidly increases in many countries around the world, with the goal of greener and safer transportation options. Countries such as China, Germany, and the United States, among others, have enacted strict safety and environmental regulations. In three years, the share of electric cars in overall vehicle sales jumped from about 4% to 14% between 2020 and 2022. It is expected that sales of electric vehicles will continue to grow strongly in the coming years.
  • Growing Technological Advancement - The increasing accessibility of these sensors to a wider range of vehicles is facilitated by developments in sensor technology, such as their greater precision and extended range with reduced costs. The perception sensors market is expected to grow over the next few years due to this trend.


  • Accuracy and Reliability Issues - Perception sensors need to be highly accurate and reliable, especially in safety-critical applications like autonomous vehicles. Environmental factors such as rain, snow, and low light can affect sensor performance, posing accuracy challenges.
  • Data Processing and Integration Problem with perception sensors is Predicted to Hamper the Market Growth in the Upcoming Period
  • High Cost of perception sensors is Anticipated to Pose Limitations in the Perception Sensors Market Expansion During the Forecast Period

Perception Sensors Segmentation

Type (RADAR, LIDAR, Camera, Infrared Radiation (IR), Inertial Measurement Units (IMUs))

In terms of type, the camera segment is predicted to hold the highest CAGR of 25% by the end of 2036. This is predicted to grow on account of the abilities of this perception sensor to reduce the complexity of the circuit, consume very low static power, and offer higher sensitivity owing to the presence of the latest pixel architecture. Furthermore, increased resolution is going to provide even more detailed information for accurate object recognition and identification. Smaller and more compact cameras will enable integration into smaller devices and robots. Additionally, AI-powered algorithms are going to enhance the ability of cameras to handle challenging environmental conditions and extract meaningful information from the data.

Vehicle Type (Commercial, Passenger)

In terms of vehicle type, the passenger vehicle segment is predicted to dominate the perception sensors market growth with a growth rate of 60% during the estimated period. The segment for passenger vehicles is estimated to lead the market, in terms of share, ascribing to the rising need for the optimization of fuel consumption and growing demand for environment-friendly and safety-oriented vehicles. From 2017 to 2025, an analysis shows the number of green vehicle models sold by Hyundai Motor and Kia Motors in South Korea. By the year 2025, it is expected that approximately 38 eco-vehicle models will be produced by the Hyundai Motor Group. Features such as lane departure warning, blind spot detection, and automatic emergency braking rely heavily on sensors such as cameras, radar, and ultrasonic sensors, driving the demand and thus driving the segment growth in the estimated timeframe.
