A Review of the Automotive Market for Rain Sensors
Consumer demand continues to fuel growth in the global rain sensor market, and more and more vehicle makers are now offering the safety and comfort device on their cars. The technology is no longer the sole preserve of the luxury class, however, as an increasing number of mid-range and smaller vehicles are offering rain sensors.

As installation rates rise, the downward pressure on unit prices continues. Manufacturers report that the average unit price has more than halved over the past seven years. As prices plummet, suppliers are busy developing next-generation technologies, adding an increasing number of functions and features.
