Sales of Proximity Sensor Market to Record Exponential Growth During 2020 – 2030

Posted by VISHAL PAHURKAR on October 5th, 2021

Proximity sensors are used to detect the presence or absence of objects using light, electromagnetically field, and sound. Demand for proximity sensors is increasing for a broad range of applications, such as detection, inspection, positioning, robotics, and consumer products. These proximity sensors are becoming increasingly popular in the automotive industry, due to inherent advantages such as low cost, safety, low power, and ability to integrate with sliders, touch buttons, and others, for automotive sensing applications. Increasing awareness related to monitoring and safety systems in the automotive industry is expected to boost the growth of the proximity sensor market over the next decade.

As per PMR’s report, the global proximity sensor market generated a market revenue of US 3.3 Bn in 2019, and is expected to expand at a steady CAGR of 6% during the forecast period (2020–2030).

  • Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, demand for proximity sensors has surged so as to enhance workplace safety and ensure contact tracing via proximity detection tags.

“Due to increasing adoption of automation technologies for industrial process and control devices, demand for sensors in the industrial ecosystem is growing rapidly. Proximity sensors are used for sensing, positioning, and detection, within industrial automation applications, for non-contact proximity detection, which will drive market growth over the coming years,” says a PMR analyst.

Technological Advancements in Proximity Sensors to Boost Market Growth

Proximity sensors have seen an evolution from low-sensing capabilities to high-sensing and detection functions. The proximity sensor market landscape has evolved from fixed-sensing to auto-sensing proximity sensors. Moreover, the range of proximity sensors has increased due to wide application areas across industries. Modern-day proximity sensors have very high characteristic safety values, such as increased temperature range as well as increased EMC resistance.

In May 2019, Pepperl+Fuchs GmbH, introduced an inductive proximity sensor containing four rectangular and cylindrical series with a cable and plug connection. Such high-quality inductive proximity sensors are used to meet the needs of the automation industry.
