Driving Towards Growth: A $14.3 Billion Automotive Sensor Market Opportunity by 2029

This market research report was originally published at the Yole Group’s website. It is reprinted here with the permission of the Yole Group.

The convergence of two automotive megatrends, electrification and ADAS, is fueling the sensors market.


  • Sensors for electrification and ADAS both show remarkably strong growth in revenue between 2019 and 2029, with 24% and 17% CAGR, respectively, during this period.

  • The overall sensors market for automotive applications was $9.3 billion in 2023 and is pointing to $14.3 billion by 2029 (7% CAGR).

  • The biggest segments are radars and CIS, with more than $4 billion and more than $3 billion, respectively, in 2029. LiDARs will have the biggest growth at 48% to $649 million during this period.

  • Ecosystem: the German Tier-one, Bosch, leads the market due to strong revenue in MEMS (pressure, accelerometer, IMU) and radar.

6.5 billion semiconductor sensors for the automotive market were shipped in 2023 globally, generating $9.3 billion in revenue. Yole Group expects a 7% revenue CAGR between 2023 and 2029 to $14.3 billion, with almost 9 billion sensors shipped worldwide. During these coming years, the automotive industry is expected to go through massive transformations in all four car domains:

  • In powertrain and electrification, the automotive industry is transitioning from cars based on internal combustion engines (ICE) to electrified cars, which are expected to represent 43% of production in 2029. In terms of sensors, this segment will grow with a 3% CAGR between 2023 and 2029. In the long term, the electrification of cars will induce critical changes in the sensor landscape by giving birth to new applications while removing others.
  • In the ADAS and safety segment, cars are becoming more intelligent, enhancing safety while driving autonomously. Revenue is by far the largest of all segments and Yole Group forecasts about $8 billion in revenue by 2029.
  • Infotainment and telematics: with customers demanding greater entertainment options for both drivers and passengers, this sector is projected to achieve a favorable 7% CAGR from 2023 to 2029. This segment should exceed $2.9 billion by 2029.
  • In the chassis domain, OEMs strive to improve passenger safety, send valuable data to the ADAS computing unit, and even remove hydraulic systems in the car. In this context, the global sensorization of cars is driving sensor volumes to a 3% CAGR between 2023 and 2029. In terms of revenue, Yole Group expects almost $1.9 billion to be generated in 2029.

“The upcoming years are poised to witness a dynamic transformation in automotive sensor technology driven by advancements in ADAS, autonomous driving, electrification, and the widespread adoption of sensors across global car fleets. Consequently, substantial reorganization within the industry and its supply chain is anticipated. Therefore, there is a pressing need to develop strategic business plans and collaborate with suitable partners to capitalize on emerging opportunities.”
