Global Battery Sensor Market Size, Share, Opportunities, COVID-19 Impact, And Trends By Communication Protocol (CAN, LIN), By Voltage Type (12V, 24V, 48V), By Industry Vertical (Automotive, Energy And Power, Others), And By Geography - Forecasts From 2021 To 2026

Published:  Dec 2021 Report Code: KSI061611678 Pages: 114

The global battery sensor market was valued at US$440.333 million in 2019 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 14.86% over the forecast period to reach a total market size of US$1,161.350 million by 2026. 

An important part of the energy management system of the vehicle is the battery sensor. By measuring the temperature and charging voltage, the sensor informs the car of the exact battery condition. Various factors that could impact the life of the battery, including current, voltage, and temperature, are monitored by a battery sensor without getting in the way of data processing. Other factors driving the demand for these sensors include the growing market for electric vehicles in the world and the growing market for industrial energy storage solutions.  As emission norms worldwide become more stringent, electrical & electronic components are increasingly adopted, and vehicle production and luxury vehicle sales increase, the Battery Sensor Market is poised for growth. Over 200 million electric passenger cars are predicted to be on the road by 2030, a rapid increase of just over 2 million vehicles in 2016. As electric vehicles become more prevalent, there is a corresponding rise in battery sensors as well.  (Source:

global battery sensor market

Sensors in batteries have the capability to measure current, voltage, and temperature accurately and on-demand. Using this information, the electrical system can be precisely rated in terms of its health and charge, ensuring the best possible performance. Apart from monitoring the battery, it is also capable of detecting defective electronic components in the automobile.  Growing demand for battery sensors is expected to stem from the growing adoption of advanced technologies in modern vehicles. As a result, these technologies affect how many vehicles have batteries and what sensors are present in them.

Growth Factors:

  • Electric vehicles are on the rise

As advanced technologies are increasingly adopted in modern vehicles, the battery sensor market is expected to grow.  Vehicles powered by electricity were designed primarily to replace conventional ways of transportation that are environmentally detrimental. Due to technological advances, electric vehicles have become increasingly popular. By comparison, an electric vehicle is more efficient, has lower emissions and maintenance costs, is easier to charge at home, is smoother to drive, and reduces noise from the engine. Additionally, electric vehicles do not require oil changes, although they cost slightly more than their equivalents powered by gasoline. Over 200 million electric passenger cars are predicted to be on the road by 2030, a rapid increase of just over 2 million vehicles in 2016. By 2030, there could be 900 million electric two-, three-, and four-wheeled vehicles on the roads, more than four-wheeled cars. (Source: By 2025, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) of China predicts new energy vehicles, mostly electric vehicles (EVs), will represent 25% of all vehicle sales. Additionally,  by 2030, the Indian government plans to have 30% of its vehicles electric.


As part of an investment program involving electric cars and battery factories, Tesla (TSLA) said it will invest up to $12 billion. Also, Mercedes-Benz maker Daimler plans to invest more than 40 billion euros ($47 billion) so it can compete with Tesla in the all-electric vehicle market by 2030. Such huge investments in electronic vehicles will boost the market growth for battery sensors.


  • Malfunction:

Typically, battery sensors get damaged or shorted when dirt, moisture, or battery acid make their way into the sensor. BMW vehicles, for instance, have the battery located in the side compartment in the trunk, allowing water to leak onto the battery and damage the sensor. BMW refers to it as the Intelligent Battery Sensor or IBS. Failure of an IBS can result in many electrical problems, including no-start situations. In addition to being fragile, battery sensors can also be damaged during servicing or removal. The Stop/Start system may not function correctly due to a bad battery sensor in many vehicles. Therefore, such malfunctions can cause hindrance in market growth.

COVID-19 Impact on Battery Sensor Market:

Several nations have imposed a complete lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which has negatively impacted vehicle production. The closure of factories around the world has greatly impacted vehicle sales. In spite of this, most automakers have resumed vehicle production with some measures and limited production. EV manufacturers didn't suffer much from the deteriorating economic conditions in the last few months of 2020 as demand for zero-emission vehicles rose. Due to the overall increase in demand for electric vehicles, the demand for battery sensors has not been affected.
