Sensor Market Outlook, 2028 

The Global Sensor Market size was valued at $166.69 billion in 2019, and is projected to reach $345.77 billion by 2028, to register a CAGR of 8.9% from 2021 to 2028.

Sensors are the devices that detect events or changes in environment and then provide corresponding output. They sense physical input such as light, heat, motion, moisture, pressure, or any other entity, and respond by producing an output on a display or transmit the information in electronic form for further processing. These have major applications in flood & water level monitoring systems, environmental monitoring, traffic monitoring & controlling, energy saving in artificial lighting, remote system monitoring & equipment fault diagnostics, and precision agriculture & animal tracking.

Sensor-Market,-2021-2028

Sensors have applications in almost every industry vertical, however, have highest usage in consumer electronic products, followed by automotive, and IT & telecom. Smartphones incorporate sensors such as accelerometer, gyroscope, ambient light sensor, proximity sensor, and temperature detectors to keep a track on parameters and provide a centralized system for automatic control.

The global sensor market is anticipated to witness significant growth during the forecast period. Factors such increase in adoption of temperature & proximity sensors in portable and advance healthcare devices and adoption of motion & position sensors in industries drive growth of the sensor market. However, scalability & reliability issues in deployment of sensors in system on chip (SoC) is a major restraint for the global market. In addition, increase in adoption of gyroscopes and accelerometers in consumer electronics, coupled with innovative applications including gesture recognition, biometrics, and motion-sensing is expected to create opportunities for the sensor industry.

These key players have adopted various strategies, such as product portfolio expansion, mergers & acquisitions, agreements, geographical expansion, and collaborations, to increase their market penetration and strengthen their foothold in the industry.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

Outbreak of COVID-19 has significantly affected the electronics and semiconductor sector. Business and manufacturing units across various countries were closed, owing to increase in number of COVID-19 cases, and are estimated to remain closed in 2021 as well. Furthermore, partial or complete lockdown has disrupted global supply chain posing challenges for manufactures to reach customers. The overall production process is adversely affected, however, increase in demand from healthcare and automotive sectors boost growth of the market globally.

The COVID-19 pandemic is impacting the society and overall economy across the globe. The impact of this outbreak is growing day-by-day as well as affecting the overall business globally. The crisis is creating uncertainty in the stock market, leading to fall in business confidence, massive slowdown of supply chain, and increase panic among customers. 

Asian and European countries under lockdowns have suffered a major loss of business and revenue, owing to shutdown of manufacturing units in these regions. Operations of production and manufacturing industries have been heavily impacted by the outbreak of the COVID-19 disease. However, at the same time high demand from healthcare, automotive, and IT & telecom has led to increase in growth of the sensor industry in 2020.  

COVID-19 has severely impacted the electronics sector as production facilities have been stalled, which has a significant demand in industries. The effect of COVID-19 lockdown includes large-scale manufacturing interruption across Europe and interruption in Chinese parts exports, which hinders the sensor market growth.
