Follow us on LinkedIn – Against the backdrop of an era of intelligent mobility and unrelenting pursuit of vehicle safety, poised to gain are intelligent automotive technologies that revolve around safety, comfort and convenience. Primary among them is Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS) which possess the potential to avert accidents caused by over-inflated and under-inflated tires. Several legislations already in place like in the United States and in Europe have helped shape growth patterns in the TPMS market, over the last couple of years. Governments around the world are focusing on legislating active road safety measures, given the rise in the number of road accidents worldwide. TPMS in the United States has witnessed substantial growth following the enforcement of TREAD Act legislation that mandate installation of TPMS in all new cars. The market in Europe has also been witnessing robust growth following the strict implementation of TPMS installations in high-end and middle range vehicle models. The latest enforcement of the directive proposal imposing mandatory adoption of TPMS in M1 category of vehicles is fostering growth in the market.
Growing consumer emphasis on fuel efficiency, compounded by government push towards reducing vehicular emissions is also throwing the spotlight on TPMS. Rising fuel prices has additionally brought the focus of vehicle owners squarely on fuel efficiency. Low tire pressure results in millions of gallons of fuel wastages each year. Under inflated tires create excess pressure on the casing of the tire, increasing the rolling resistance of vehicles, and increasing both wear and tear of the tire and fuel consumption. The quest for fuel efficiency therefore offers a strong business case for TPMS.
Direct TPMS is forecast to witness strong gains in the market as compared to Indirect TPMS. Most indirect TPMS which are factory fitted are designed to detect tire deflation using the vehicle’s anti-lock braking system (ABS). Although cheaper than direct TPMS, indirect TPMS have numerous pitfalls, such as inability to measure the actual drop in tire pressure and pinpoint the specific wheel with low air pressure. Direct TPMS, in comparison, are expensive and are designed to be directly installed on the wheel. The sensor mounted onto the valve of each tire identifies low tire pressure, and sends a dashboard alert when pressure dips below 25% of manufacturer recommended levels. Direct TPMS systems are also more capable of meeting the stringent NHTSA requirements. Despite its higher cost, direct TPMS dominates the market supported largely by stringent legislations, which has in effect changed the market from a value proposition business to a commodity business.
Also, concerns over fatal crashes triggered by inadequate tire inflation is bringing into the spotlight TPMS for aircraft. TPMS for aircraft tires is attracting immense interest, given that properly inflated tires help save fuel, absorb static and dynamic stresses and shocks during landing and take offs, and prevent hazardous failures. Tire failures can result in loss of aircraft control, and can heighten the risk of failure of the entire wheel assembly. Technology innovation currently ranks high in the aircraft TPMS market with current innovations revolving around the development of wireless sensors for direct integration into the tire system. These wireless pressure sensors are being engineered as battery-free passive RFID wireless sensing system architectured around ASIC (Application Specific Integrated Circuit).
As stated by the new market research report on Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS), the United States represents the largest regional market worldwide. Asia-Pacific is forecast to emerge as the fastest growing market with revenues from the region poised to grow at a CAGR of about 8.4% over the analysis period. Changing societal values, and priorities, against a backdrop of new environmental and economic realities will drive the automotive industry’s broader vision of accident-free driving, thus providing ample opportunities for growth of TPMS systems.
