Powertrain Sensor Report - 2017

Powertrain Sensor Report - 2017

Publication Date: 06/04/2018

IHS Markit has analyzed the sensor content of more than 16,000 engines in 7 major world regions based on fuel type, aspiration, prevailing emission standard, and other engine characteristics to develop a forecast for sensor implementation out to 2019. By this time, new and more demanding legislation will have emerged in the US and Europe, driving new strategies to reduce emissions like CO2, HCs, and NOx even further, while not jeopardizing the requisite user experience. These laws are forcing OEMs to further innovate in areas as diverse as thermal control, friction, new material and weight considerations, new intake / exhaust architectures and of course, sensing.

This annual PowerPoint slide report and database addresses opportunities, disruptive forces, technology battlegrounds, supply and market information for internal combustion engine sensors. 

Typical issues addressed:

  • With advent of Euro 6 and US Lev 3 legislation, what key emissions strategies are adopted by OEMS, and what implications for sensors?
    • Cooled vs. non cooled EGR
    • HP / LP EGR loops
    • SCR vs. LNT for diesel emission reduction?
  • What chances inductive vs. Hall for speed and position sensing?
  • Do turbochargers need speed sensors?
  • What is the impact of fuel quality on emission systems / sensors? 
  • What is the impact of micro-hybridization (stop-start) systems on sensor content?
  • What are the opportunities for in-cylinder sensors?
  • How does EGR architecture impact temperature sensors? 

Applicable To:

  • Marketing, sales executives, procurement, R&D
  • Tier 1, 2, and 3 suppliers
  • Foundries, equipment for ASIC and semiconductor
  • Packaging and Test
  • Materials supply companies
