Global demand for light vehicle OEM automotive sensors will advance 11.8 percent annually through 2014. North America will be the fastest growing region, far outpacing the Asia/Pacific and other regions based on a rebounding US market and higher per-vehicle sensor revenues.

This study analyzes the $9.1 billion world automotive sensor industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1999, 2004 and 2009, and forecasts for 2014 and 2019 by sensor type (engine and drivetrain; safety and security; emission control; entertainment, communication and navigation), world region and for 23 countries.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 45 industry participants, including Bosch, DENSO and Valeo.
