According to a new report by MarketsandMarkets, the automotive sensor industry is expected to see a large amount of growth over the next eight years. As of now, automobiles use different types of sensors and PCBs in order to monitor engine performance, run entertainment and navigation systems, and provide security with anti-theft devices that are installed. With more features and higher performance expected, the market for automotive sensors and PCBs is projected to reach $35.78 billion by 2022. In addition to new technological capabilities, the market will be boosted by increased demand from consumers worldwide. Consumer taste and safety considerations will also play a role and these can already be seen with vehicles that are incorporating systems to assist with parking. The forecast for the market predicts a CAGR of 8.6 percent, which is encouraging to automakers and producers of printed circuit boards.
Efficient PCB Design for Automobile Applications
The key for PCB manufacturers to be successful in the automotive space is to develop production processes that are efficient and cost effective. By introducing new capabilities and expanding on the technology that is currently present, makers of printed circuit boards will be able to produce PCBs that work under increasingly stressful conditions. This will ensure that gadgets and safety systems will continue to work as designed so that the driver has a seamless driving experience without worrying that something will fail.
