Position Sensor Market: Segmental Analysis
The Position Sensor Market Share is segmented on the basis of contact type, output, type, and industries.
By contact type, the position sensor market is segmented into contact and non-contact. Among these, non-contact position sensor is likely to expect healthy growth. Thus, these position sensors fulfill the requirements of complicated systems.
By type, the position sensor market is segmented into linear position sensor and rotary position sensor. Of these, linear position sensor is likely to gain significant share due to its surging demand in several applications and equipment, like machine tools, automated machinery, measuring and test equipment, motion systems, and robotics.
By output, the position sensor market is segmented into analog and digital. Among these, digital output is likely to gain prominence as discrete signals are less prone to potential interference and lead to reliable measurement values and higher quality output.
By industry, the market is segmented into consumer electronics, aerospace, healthcare, manufacturing, automotive, packaging, and others. Among these, the automotive industry is likely to gain prominence due to the increased adoption of position sensors to gather critical information in the form of output signals to the engine control module, which is deployed in the vehicle to perform actions.
Geographically, the position sensor market spans across Europe, North America, Asia Pacific, and Rest of the World (RoW).
Considering the global scenario, Europe acquired the largest market share due to the presence of strict law emissions in European countries. The increased production of automobile and surging use of rotary and linear position sensors is likely to contribute to the regional market’s growth.
The Asia Pacific is likely to witness a healthy growth in the foreseeable future owing to the increased adoption of latest technologies, rising focus towards the automotive industry, and surging demand for consumer electronics. The presence of a huge population base, growth in the electronics and manufacturing sectors, and growing investments in R&D are likely to influence the market growth in the region. In this region, highly efficient and cost-effective position sensors have experienced a surging demand from the electronics, automotive, healthcare, medical, and packaging industries, which is predicted to boost the growth of the market.
