Global Automotive Rain Sensors Market Size, Share, Forecast Report, 2020-2027
Global automotive rain sensors market has witnessed gradual growth in recent years and is expected to witness steady growth in the forecast period. Automotive rain sensors save the driver, the effort to adjust the wiper on the windshield, sense the rain drops, and automatically switch on wipers, to ensure clear view through the windscreen. The growing automotive industry and increasing demand for driver safety & comfort in automobiles, with growing adoption of electrical systems has fueled the demand of sensors in automobiles. These are expected to drive the rain sensor market during the forecast period.
Global automotive rain sensors market augment the safety and ease of the driver, as they do not require the driver to adjust the wiper on the windshield in order. Windshields of vehicles are equipped with the rain sensors to detect the movement of wipers without blocking the view of the driver. Automotive rain sensors can control the wiping movement of the wipers at flexible speed when the system is switched on. Improvement in the technological advancement, rise in production of vehicles, and increase in demand for luxury features are the key factors that drive the automotive rain sensor market. Implementation of automotive rain sensors is driven by the rise in usage of advanced electrical features in vehicles. Original equipment manufacturers (OEM) are incorporating the rain sensing wiper technology in vehicles due to increasing demand. Previously, automotive rain sensors were a supplementary comfort feature. However, their demand has increased due to the rise in the number of road accidents, across the world. The overall cost of vehicles has increased due to the integration of advanced electrical feature, which acts as a restraint to the automotive rain sensor market.
The global automotive rain sensors market is expected to grow at ~ 6% CAGR during the forecast period.
