The advent of driverless/self-driving vehicles has gained massive momentum in the recent past given the rapid shift in consumer preference from conventional automobiles to modern vehicles featuring AI modalities and advanced algorithms. Autonomous vehicles are embedded with gas sensors to optimize safety and efficiency across operations. These sensors play a key role in monitoring and maintaining air quality by detecting the presence of gases toxic to passengers as well as the environment, thus amplifying product demand.

Several automobile giants are investing heavily to scale up the manufacturing of driverless vehicle systems, propelling the demand for gas sensors. For instance, in October 2022, Volkswagen AG announced plans to invest USD 2.3 billion in a new autonomous driving joint initiative with China’s Horizon Robotics Inc. to manufacture automated & assisted driving systems.

Technical limitations & high initial costs may impede product demand

Gas sensors based on aging metal-oxide semiconductors showcase certain technical concerns such as low selectivity due to their dependence on surface chemistry, thus hampering product adoption. Gas sensors featuring semiconductors are highly vulnerable to other limitations including susceptibility to humidity, slow recovery, and dosimeter-type response. However, ongoing developments in the miniaturization of gas sensors are expected to offer more sophisticated technologies with superior performance efficiency. Miniaturization of electronics is a rapidly proliferating trend offering lucrative scope for innovative small gas detectors and air control monitors.
