Why are sensors so expensive?

I'm talking why the bigger the sensor, more expensive the camera.  A full frame camera can cost you around $2,000 or higher.  A medium format camera can cost you as much as a new car.  35mm. film cameras or 120 film cameras never cost that much, not even a Hasselblad.
