Tilt Sensors Market Rising With Growth In New Technology Trends Research By 2025

Posted by Mrudula Anil Karmarkar on August 26th, 2021

The global tilt sensors market size is expected to reach USD 288.7 million by 2025, registering a CAGR of 8.9% from 2019 to 2025, according to a new study conducted by Grand View Research, Inc. Tilt sensors measure the angular inclination of a vehicle or equipment with reference to the ground and provide an alarm or information to the operators and drivers about a rollover condition. These devices are being adopted across a variety of applications as a part of safety systems in automobiles and construction equipment.

The market for tilt sensor is expected to expand in response to the notable rise in focus of operators on safety standards and regulations set by safety communities. Several safety communities are coming forward to standardize and implement regulations due to the rise in accidents caused from rollover or tilting of vehicles and equipment, especially in industries such as construction, mining, transportation, aerospace, and defense. For instance, the Scaffold and Access Industry Association recently published the ANSI A92 standards for the North American Mobile Elevated Working Platforms (MEWP) and equipment, wherein every design will integrate tilt sensors either in the form of inclinometers or tilt switches.

The market is also anticipated to grow over the forecast period owing to the increasing investments in transportation projects, commercial infrastructure development activities, public facilities, and mining exploration activities across developing economies. Majority of the demand for tilt sensors is expected to be seen in the aerospace & defense industries owing to the heavy investments made by the governments in collaboration with the technology service providers across all the nations on drones, aircraft, weapons platforms, launchers, and armored vehicles.

The usage of and demand for tilt sensors has notably increased over the past few years. Tilt sensors have developed gradually from ordinary mechanical pendulum-like devices to fluid-filled electrolytic-type devices to MEMS-based digital sensors. For a long time, tilt sensors were used only to measure safety parameters such as boom angles and vehicle reaction in the automotive sector. As the technology evolved and safety regulations ensured workers’ protection, these devices can be easily integrated with other devices for various applications. Due to ongoing research activities, these devices are now being used to drive innovation in areas such as drivers’ comfort in automobiles.

A tilt sensor produces an electric signal with an angular movement and is used to measure slope with a finite range of motion. Construction equipment manufacturers are also realizing the importance of deploying tilt sensors to avoid serious mishaps at construction sites. These devices are specially used in scissor lifts, telehandlers, boom lifts, and aerial work platforms (AWP) for appropriate monitoring of tilt angles at construction sites and avoiding mishaps such as collisions, falling, entrapment, and crane overturning. These devices aid in monitoring the chassis tilt angle, platform tilt angle, and the platform height of a variety of heavy machinery used at construction sites.

Tilt Sensors Market Report Highlights

  • The non-metal housing material type segment is anticipated to register the highest CAGR of 10.5% from 2019 to 2025. This can be attributed to the rising demand for compact tilt sensors, which require high temperature stability and a high degree of ingress protection during use in critical conditions such as where fuel and grease contamination prevail
  • In terms of technology, the solid state (MEMS) segment is anticipated to register the highest CAGR of 9.8% from 2019 to 2025. This growth can be attributed to the demand for low-cost high-performance tilt sensors
  • The Asia Pacific regional tilt sensor market dominated in 2018 and is expected to retain its dominance over the forecast period. This can be attributed to the growing investments in economical projects across construction, automotive, aerospace, defense, and telecom industries followed by the rise in distribution partnerships and the presence of a large number of manufacturing plants in the region
  • The key industry participants include Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd., TE Connectivity, SICK AG, Jewell Instruments LLC, ifm electronic gmbh, Pepperl+Fuchs AG, Level Developments Ltd, MEMSIC Inc., elobau GmbH & Co. KG, Balluff GmbH, Gefran, and The Fredericks Company.

The market is highly fragmented owing to the presence of several players trying to compete with one another. To survive the rising competition, key industry players are emphasizing on investing in research & development activities, entering into partnerships with established players, and focusing on enhancing their distribution strategies by collaborating with global distributors. The distribution of tilt sensors through a robust network of third-party partners in various countries also helps key companies strengthen their positions in the global market. For instance, Variohm Group acquired Positek in May 2019. This acquisition is likely to help the Variohm Group expand its overall customer support and production capability and distribution channels in several industrial markets. Some of the prominent players in the tilt sensor market include:

  • TE Connectivity
  • Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd
  • Pepperl+Fuchs AG
  • Level Developments Ltd
  • The Fredericks Company
  • MEMSIC Inc
  • ifm electronic gmbh
  • Balluff GmbH
  • Jewel Instruments LLC
  • elobau GmbH & Co. KG
  • Gefran
