Selected Value Chain Analysis

Sensor Manufacturers

  • The advancements in technology and need of the end-users bring up the innovation in the products. The sensor fabrication varies according to the automotive model and the specificity of the applications. The researchers develop the product design so as to reduce its size and use it for multiple functions. Also, the material used for sensing and other applications such as packaging is being developed. In this process, the government standards and cost factor is considered to achieve maximum benefit in comparison to the investments made.
  • Considering such developments, the manufacturers produce the sensors in bulk or as per the customizations required by the auto manufacturers. The sensors based on MEMS are among those having mass production. On the other hand, the LIDARs are the ones manufactured with some specificity.

Component Manufacturers

  • The component manufacturers can also be called as value-added resellers. The sensor chips or devices are embedded in the components by these manufacturers. The components are used by the automotive industry for auto manufacturing. The cost to the product is added at this stage.
  • The sensor products by Infineon are used by Bosch to embed them in desirable components. The RADAR chips by Infineon are embedded in sensors by Bosch, which contributes to the driver assistance systems. Moreover, the RADAR chips are packaged so as to reduce the system cost. Such manufacturing processes where the product is developed as well as the cost is reduced increases the potential of its applications. The RADARs now are not only used in premium vehicles but also in small cars for traffic jam assist systems, adaptive cruise control, and emergency braking.

Automotive Parts Suppliers and Distributors

  • At this stage of the value chain of automotive sensors, the sensors are distributed to the automotive companies at different locations. They play an important role to maintain the balance between supply and demand of a product.

Automotive Manufacturers

  • Automotive manufacturers need a variety of raw material for the manufacturing of vehicles for different parts such as powertrain, chassis, interiors, body and main parts. It also includes the electrical and electronics products such as audio/video devices, charging system, ignition system, sensors, switches and many more. The sensors include airbag sensors, coolant temperature sensor, crankshaft position sensor, fuel level sensor, fuel pressure sensor, O₂ sensor and many more.
  • All these parts are obtained from different distributors. The presence of distributors helps the automotive industry to get the raw material in time, and proceed with the uninterrupted manufacturing of vehicles. At times, the raw material is also obtained directly from the manufacturing companies.


  • The end-users are mainly the vehicle drivers. The automotive sensor’s performance depends on the level of safety, convenience, and comfort of the driver and the others.
