Time Of Flight Sensor Market Research, 2031

The Global Time Of Flight Sensor Market was valued at $2.7 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $13 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 16.9% from 2022 to 2031.

The time of flight principle (ToF) is a method for measuring the distance between a sensor and an object, based on the time difference between the emission of a signal and its return to the sensor, after being reflected by an object. Various types of signals (also called carriers) can be used with the time of flight principle, the most common being sound and light. These sensors are used for a range of applications, including robot navigation, vehicle monitoring, people counting, and object detection. Surge in adoption of machine vision systems across different industries plays a vital role in driving the growth the market. In general, machine vision applications require highly stable and reliable sensory systems. Tof 3d camera and tof sensor provide a reliable set of depth data, increasing the robustness and flexibility of many surveillance, inspection, and logistics systems.
