Business opportunities from TPMS

Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS) became a mandatory fitment on all new cars from November 1 2014 and have also been part of the MOT test for all cars fitted with the technology that were first used on or after January 1 2012.

There are two types of TPMS system; indirect which is fitted to approx. 35% of the car parc (typically in VAG vehicles) and Direct systems fitted to the remaining majority of vehicles including BMW, Ford, Hyundai, Kia, Mercedes, Toyota and Vauxhall to name but a few.

Direct systems utilise tyre pressure sensors inside the tyre, and there are already millions of these sensors on our roads. They all use batteries, all of which will eventually fail and need replacing. These sensors are also exposed to the environment and often corrode or perish well before the battery calls it a day, providing servicing opportunities.
