“From inventing the world’s most popular Schrader pneumatic tire valves in 1844 to becoming the global leader and pioneer in providing TPMS solutions, Schrader is constantly evolving and innovating technologies to match the global need for TPMS solutions,” said Anuj Monga, Associate Director at Frost & Sullivan. “Today, more than half of all global vehicle platforms use Schrader’s direct TPMS technology, indicating the strong brand strength from the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) side.”
Sensata Technologies and its brand Schrader are recognized for providing the highest quality, exceptionally durable, TPMS sensors and solutions for the original equipment (OE) market and aftermarket. The company delivers timely product updates and ongoing TPMS-related training to a wide variety of garages across the North American market, positioning the Schrader brand and Sensata Technologies as one of the most reliable TPMS sensor suppliers.
Under the Schrader brand, Sensata offers sophisticated TPMS sensors through most major distributors, retailers, and workshops across North America with a wide portfolio of products and service support. Schrader offers several services that remarkably differentiate the brand from its competitors, such as customized technical assistance, valuable promotional offers, and advanced education and training.
“Backed by Sensata’s strong OE presence and understanding of market needs, the TPMS sensors enjoy strong demand in the North American aftermarket as well, with a 2020 market share of about 38% to 40% in terms of revenue. One of the major reasons for this success is that Schrader’s TPMS sensors are sold at almost all major tire warehouse distributors (WDs), traditional WDs, and retailers across North America,” noted Monga. “Frost & Sullivan concludes that Sensata Technologies and its aftermarket brand Schrader TPMS Solutions is the strongest market participant and global leader in providing TPMS systems and solutions, including programmable TPMS sensors, to the North American passenger vehicle market.”
