Proximity and Displacement Sensors Market Outlook – 2030

The global proximity and displacement sensors market size was valued at $5.89 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $14.85 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 9.8% from 2021 to 2030. 

A proximity sensor is a sensor integrated in a system to detect the presence of an object within the vicinity of the sensor. The sensor is featured with non-contact detection that ensures a high degree of reliability and durability. A displacement sensor measures the position or displacement of an object from one point to another. Presently, the market for proximity and displacement sensors is in a progressive phase of its product life cycle. Increase in demand for these sensors in the development of factory and process automation system has witnessed significant proximity and displacement sensors market growth.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The COVID-19 pandemic adversely impacts the industry as huge workforce of enterprises across the globe is working from home. This has led to decline in tourism, which, in turn, reduced the demand for proximity and displacement sensors. Although the COVID-19 pandemic forced field work of several major projects to pause temporarily, the market is expected to remain robust with cumulative number of shipments being marginally unaffected in the next three-year period from 2020. 

New projects globally are stalled, which, in turn, have affected the demand for proximity and displacement sensors in several industries, including manufacturing, industrial, and retail. Although market players face minimal impact on procuring raw materials, time and shipping costs are still major concerns, which hamper the market growth. Moreover, rise in investments in development of smart cities has gained importance during the pandemic. Subsequently, the demand for proximity and displacement sensors is anticipated to gain momentum post-pandemic. 

Key market players focus on positioning their companies for a strong recovery after the pandemic. These market players have meticulously planned to strengthen their supply chain to benefit from post-pandemic opportunities. They further focus on availing additional opportunities with expanded market usage of proximity and displacement sensors technology, owing to price considerations, use of proximity and displacement sensors market technology, and additional display offerings using micro-lenses. Hence, market players are anticipated to boost the market growth owing to various opportunities generated post-pandemic. Although COVID-19 has a major negative impact on the growth of the market, the outbreak of COVID-19 is expected to provide numerous opportunities for the market growth during the forecast period.

Top Impacting Factors

Rise in Trend of Factory Process Automation

Factory automation is a major application area of proximity and displacement sensors. Proximity sensor is a crucial part of the automation systems, which is used for object detection and signaling the processor to initiate specific process assigned to it. Manufacturers are looking for factory automation solutions as an optimum alternative, specifically in the areas where manufacturing process requires repeatability and quality standards are stringent, thus driving the proximity and displacement sensors market analysis.

Cost of Automation

The proximity and displacement sensors market seeks factory and process automation as the prime area of application in terms of revenue. Automation involves installation of robotic structures embedded with intelligent sensing technology, which operates with or without negligible amount of human supervision. However, the implementation of fully integral automation system attracts a huge amount of initial investment, which subsequently dilutes the interest of medium- and small-sized manufacturers. However, high cost associated with establishing automation system is expected to provide benefits, such as concurrent task allocation feasibility and enhanced productivity, which can rapidly cover the initial investment cost. Thereby, boosting the proximity and displacement sensors market opportunity.

Emerging Concept of Smart Homes

Smart home is defined as a habitation furnished with technology that observes conditions of a residence and provides proactive administrations. The smart home concept emerged to offer two major facilities, such as safety and security assisted living for residents and luxury amenities. Proximity and displacement sensors are expected to find numerous opportunities in future, such as in home safety & security and assisted living applications, including smoke detection, automated lighting, and air conditioning.
