Proximity sensors detect the existence of objects of interest in the vicinity of the sensor. Absolute displacement as well as relative displacement of objects can be measured using displacement sensors. The sensors are capable of detecting objects through contact as well as contactless detection and measurement. The growing adoption of factory and process automation across diverse industries has expanded the application areas of proximity and displacement sensors. The Asia-Pacific market has experienced an increased demand from automobile and electronics manufacturing industries. The sensors find applications in development of efficient smart electronic equipment. The growing demand of energy efficient equipment such as elevators and escalators has significantly accelerated the growth of this market.
The proximity and displacement sensors are further categorized into inductive, capacitive, ultrasonic, photoelectric, magnetic, and LVDT. Inductive sensors are majorly used for detection of metallic objects whereas, photoelectric sensors are used for detection of non-metallic objects in their respective field of operation. Photoelectric sensors are expected to hold the largest market share during the analysis period 2014-2020, owing to their wide applications.
The various applications of proximity and displacement sensor include parking sensor systems, anti-aircraft warfare, ground proximity warning system, conveyor systems, roller coasters, assembly line testing, vibration monitoring systems, mobile devices and others (detection of surface run-out of blades, precision thickness measurement, and disc driving spindle). The maximum revenue share is held by parking sensor system, followed by mobile device and conveyor system.
On the basis of end users, the market is segmented into automotive, pulp & paper, pharmaceutical, manufacturing, food & beverages, elevators & escalators and metals & mining. The automobile and manufacturing industries together constitute 50% of the market revenue, owing to high unit cost, and increased demand of proximity and displacement sensors in these end user sectors.
The Asia-Pacific market has been analyzed across various countries including China, Japan, India, South Korea, Australia and rest of Asia-Pacific countries, which include Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam and Thailand. China dominated the Asia-Pacific proximity and displacement sensors market with 38% revenue share in 2014 and is forecasted to maintain its position, owing to the high concentration of industrial sectors.
The major vendors in the Asia-Pacific proximity and displacement sensor market include ifm Electronics GmbH, Keyence Corporation, Kaman Corporation, Micron Optics, Inc., SICK Sensor Intelligence, Panasonic Corporation, Omron Corporation, Pepperl+Fuchs, Standex-Meder Electronics Inc., and Turck Inc. These key players consistently launch new products and collaborate with other players in the market for enhancing their offerings in the market and strengthen their market penetration.
