Global Automotive Camshaft Position Sensor Market: Overview

Adoption of DOHC engines

With the aim to enhance the combustion, volumetric efficiency, and power output of the engine, automotive engine manufacturers are increasing the number of valves used in the engine. The efficient functioning of multiple engine valves can be achieved by using DOHC, which has two camshafts with two camshaft position sensors on each shaft. Thus, the adoption of DOHC engines is increasing significantly, which will fuel the growth of the automotive camshaft position sensor market at a CAGR of over 4% during the forecast period.

Development of smart position sensors

The automotive camshaft position sensors have undergone several changes from contact sensors to contactless sensors and to the latest magnetic position sensors. Moreover, the market has recently witnessed the emergence of smart sensor technology which allows the direct position sensing of a metallic target by eliminating the need for magnets. Such smart technology is expected to be adopted in camshaft position sensors, which will positively impact the growth of the automotive camshaft position sensor market.
