The demand for the sensors running in tyre pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) is growing faster and faster. Several market research apply sales figures until 2023 of about 1 Million sensors for the Middle East region.
As the UAE government is following EU regulations please find below the status for TPMS mandatory regulation for GCC Countries (Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Bahrain):
Regulation: Based on R64 or FMVSS 138
Mandated vehicle category: PC, MPV & LCV’s of less than 3.5 Tons
Implementation date for new vehicle type: 2016 model year
Implementation date for all vehicle type: 2016 model year
According to above stated rules all new car models need to have a TPMS on board. Therefore the demand for the sensors will increase every year.
Main reasons for replacing the sensors of the TPMS:
• BATTERY – after 3-5 years in use the battery runs low and the sensor need to be replaced.
• BREAKING FROM VALVE – a problem with the valve or a damaged valve may also break down the sensor.
SCHRADER® is the worldwide leading manufacturer of sensors for TPMS in configuration, development and production. More than 60% of the original sensors are produced in their factories.
