Industrial automation and demand for miniaturized consumer devices, such as wearables and IoT-connected devices, among others, across regions are among the major factors driving the MEMS pressure sensors market.
The automotive industry, which is presently undergoing a technology transition, with a major focus on increasing safety, comfort, and entertainment, provides ample opportunities for MEMS pressure sensors. Emerging sensor-rich applications, such as autonomous vehicles, drones, and AR/VR equipment, are further accelerating the need for MEMS pressure sensors.
The miniature size of MEMS pressure sensors is influencing their demand in the design scheme of the automotive industry, making them an essential factor for massive adoption. According to market expert players, Powertrain applications represent more than 50% of the pressure sensors business, followed by safety, with TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) being the biggest single automotive application. Indeed, government regulations will require pressure sensors for various applications, which include TPMS, diesel, and gasoline particle filters (DPF, GPF), and fuel tank evaporation (EVAP).
Accuracy, reliability, and longevity are the key features provided by MEMS to support the smart industry. For Industry 4.0, MEMS sensors can be applied in early-failure-detection and predictive-maintenance systems where vibration, temperature, pressure, sound, and acoustics analyses are needed, thus, driving its usage in automation and Industry 4.0 applications.
The interfaces are a source of some of the most serious issues in the design of sensor-based systems. The multiple obstacles connected with sensor interfaces are enough to make design and manufacture complicated. While invaluable for decoupling parts and allowing reuse across different implementations, they are enough to make design and manufacturing complicated. Indeed, more than a third of respondents in a recent Fierce Electronics study on sensor design said that incorporating sensors into a design is their toughest issue.
The emergence of COVID-19 decelerated the market growth; however, due to uplifting lockdowns, the market is slowly gaining traction. Apart from China, the spread of the COVID-19 in the Asian continent has restrained the growth rate as major semiconductor manufacturing countries such as South Korea were also affected significantly. With the slowdown in the global economy, the demand for electronics products is expected to be influenced in 2021.
Moreover, the COVID-19 pandemic has further stressed the importance of maintaining air quality, especially indoor air quality, whether at the home, office, or other public spaces.??Leveraging this trend, Bosch Sensortec developed an environmental MEMS sensor and AI-based software to reduce the risk of virus infection, in April 2021. The Bosch Sensortec’s BME688 is an air quality MEMS sensor that combines four sensing features, namely gas, humidity, temperature, and barometric pressure, with AI capability.

As this trend is propelling, it impacts how semiconductor devices, including MEMS sensors, are designed and qualified for automotive applications. As automotive semiconductor designers carefully consider product definition, validation, and long-term reliability, MEMS sensor suppliers are responding to novel opportunities created by electric and automated vehicles by developing inertial measurement units (IMUs) for automated driving and battery pressure monitoring sensors for Li-ion EV batteries.
Pressure sensors in the automotive industry must be able to function in extreme environments. Sensors can experience temperatures from -40°C to up to 150°C for those mounted on the engine. Also, they must withstand intense vibration and exposure to fuels, brake fluids, and saltwater spray from roads. In several cases, they replaced many of the activities of the driver, such as monitoring air pressure and fluid pressures. Additionally, pressure sensors enabled the technology that makes the airbags inflate.
MEMS pressure sensors are the most used sensors in automobiles. At least 18 automotive applications have promoted the growth of pressure sensors, including tire pressure, brake sensors in electronic stability control systems, side airbags, and engine control related to increasingly stringent emission standards, atmospheric pressure, and exhaust gas recirculation pressure.
This sensor uses monocrystalline silicon as a material and uses MEMS technology to fabricate a force-sensitive diaphragm in the middle of the material. Then, impurities are diffused on the diaphragm to form four-strain resistors, and then the strain resistors are connected by a Wheatstone bridge. Circuit to obtain high sensitivity. MEMS pressure sensors for vehicles have several common forms: capacitive, piezoresistive, differential transformer, and surface acoustic wave.
The automotive industry is one of the prominent users of MEMS pressure sensors, and the demand is still growing. Various companies in the market are receiving multiple orders from the end users.
