Market Report Description

The Global Proximity and Displacement Sensors Market size is expected to reach $12 billion by 2029, rising at a market growth of 9.3% CAGR during the forecast period.

The adoption of Ultrasonic sensor is growing in the market due to the increased demand for ultrasonic sensors in the miniaturization of commercially accessible technologies, together with expansion in integration. Since practically all surfaces reflect sound waves, this approach is unaffected by the detecting target’s material, color, and surface structure. It performs well in unclean situations. Hence, the ultrasonic sensors are expected to attain approximately 1/5th share of the market by 2029. Some of the factors impacting the market are Increase in the factory process automation trend, expanding smart homes industry, and the need for high investment.

Skilled labor has long been essential to the manufacturing sector, but this trend is changing. The merger of the physical and digital worlds has resulted in the most significant development in the vertical. Hence, the market is being driven by manufacturers searching for factory automation solutions as the best choice, particularly where manufacturing processes need to be repeatable and have strict quality standards. Smart home systems require a web portal or a smartphone application as a user interface to communicate with an automated system, in contrast to simple home automation solutions (which could range from motorized garage doors to automated security systems). As a result, proximity and displacement sensors will increase along with the adoption of smart homes, fueling the market growth.

However, the significant initial expenditure required to deploy integrated systems will likely hinder the market's expansion. In addition, because the deployment of the technology necessitates the involvement of highly trained specialists, the customer will incur higher costs for the service. This is predicted to impede growth, particularly in price-sensitive industries.

Type Outlook

Based on type, the market is segmented into inductive sensor, photoelectric sensor, capacitive sensor, ultrasonic sensor, magnetic sensor, LVDT sensor and others. The inductive sensor segment dominated the market with maximum revenue share in 2022. This is owing to the fact that these sensors are hardly ever affected by temperature variations and outside pollutants like dirt and water. Moreover, the influence is negated by using many receiver coils to estimate location and distance using the ratio of received signals.

End User Outlook

On the basis of end user, the market is divided into automotive, healthcare, manufacturing, food and beverage and others. The automotive segment garnered a remarkable growth rate in the market in 2022. This is because of the rising demand for contactless sensing technology and consumer adoption of sensor-integrated automotive security. Proximity sensors are used in the automotive industry to detect when a vehicle is getting too close to an item. The expansion is expected to be pushed by the growing usage of proximity sensors due to the increased development of autonomous vehicles.
