Proximity Sensor Market 2021 Revenue, Growth Rate Analysis and Forecast 2025

Market Overview: 

The Global Proximity Sensor Market is slated to rise from USD 2,325.4 million in 2018 to USD 3.63 Billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 7% during the forecast period.

Drivers and Restraints

With the introduction of non-contact sensing technology, the complexity of the system can be minimized to some degree. This is the primary reason why sensing components, like a proximity sensor, are increasingly needed. In the automotive and aerospace & defense sectors, proximity sensors are used in great part. Growth of sophisticated monitoring and safety technologies in the automotive industry is generating increased demand for proximity sensors. Additionally, growth in industrial automation is another leading factor driving Proximity Sensor Market growth. With the continuous reduction in the size of automation equipment, manufacturers of proximity sensors are working to build lightweight and compact sensor package designs. The rising industrial automation has emerged as a relatively more desirable place for organizations around the world to invest. Dependence on robots in industrial controller mechanisms is an proven trend which paves the way for wider and wider adoption of industrial control and automation equipment. The rise in automation of complex manufacturing processes has increased the demand for components capable of providing essential production process data. However, limitations in sensing capabilities and other sensor availability at a lower cost can hinder the growth of the proximity sensor market.
