    Suppliers of MEMS based devices rode a safety sensing wave in 2014 to reach record turnover in automotive applications. Bosch was overall number one supplier with $790 million of devices sold last year, close to 3 times that of its nearest competitor Sensata ($268 million). Compared to 2013, Sensata jumped to second place ahead of Denso and Freescale, largely on strength in both safety and powertrain pressure sensors, but also through its acquisition of Schrader Electronics, giving a lead position in the supply of tire pressure monitors.
