However, limitation of ultrasonic sensors, such as limited detection range, is a major restraint to the global ultrasonic sensor market revenue. In addition, growing demand from the healthcare sector for numerous applications, such as echocardiograms and echo graphs, is expected to create opportunities for the ultrasonic sensors industry.

Ultrasonic-Sensor-Market

Ultrasonic sensor is a type of electronic device, which is used to calculate the distance of any object through emitting ultrasonic sound waves and converts the reflected sound into an electrical signal. These waves are faster than the speed of audible sound. It consists of two main parts, transmitter and receiver. Transmitter is used to emit the sound by piezoelectric crystals, whereas receiver is used to receive the reflected signal. Ultrasonic sensors are used in many applications and industries, such as food & beverages, to calculate liquid level in bottles. In addition, the sensor is used in manufacturing for control maximizing efficiency and automated process in factory. Ultrasonic sensor industrial grade products are a highly reliable for detecting objects and measuring distance and fill level. The industrial ultrasonic sensor price is versatile in nature and proven to be a better substitute to capcitive or optical sensors.

On the contrary, rise in adoption of surveillance drones and increase in usage of ultrasonic sensors in smart applications are expected to create lucrative opportunities for the market. Therefore, these factors are expected to definitely affect the development of the global ultrasonic sensor market during the forecast period.

Competition Analysis

Competitive analysis and profiles of the major ultrasonic sensor market players, such as Balluff GmbH, Banner Engineering Corp., Baumer Group, Hans Turck GmbH & Co. KG (Turck), Honeywell International Inc., Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd, OMRON Corporation, Pepperl+Fuchs SE, Rockwell Automation, Inc., and Sick AG, are considered in the report.

Covid-19 Impact Analysis

The 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. Furthermore, partial or complete lockdown has disrupted global supply chains, posing challenges for manufactures to reach customers. The overall production process has been adversely affected, but the surge in ultrasonic sensor usage in the healthcare industry has boosted the overall ultrasonic sensor market trends 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, falling business confidence, massive slowing of supply chain, and increasing panic among the customer segments.

Asian and European countries under lockdowns have suffered major loss of business and revenue due to the shutdown of manufacturing units in these regions. The operations of the production and manufacturing industries have been heavily impacted by the outbreak of the COVID-19, thereby declining the growth of the ultrasonic sensor market outlook in 2020.

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the electronics sector as the production facility has stalled, which, in turn, resulted in significant demand for electronics and semiconductor products in industries. Its major impact includes large-scale manufacturing interruption across Europe and interruption in Chinese parts exports, which are expected to hinder the ultrasonic sensor industry.

Analyst Review

An ultrasonic sensor functions on similar principles as a radar system. An ultrasonic sensor translates electrical energy into acoustic waves and vice versa. A microcontroller is used for communication, which sends a trigger signal to the ultrasonic sensor. Generally, the duty cycle of this trigger signal is 10 µS. An ultrasonic sensor produces ultrasonic wave bursts and initiates a time counter. When an echo signal is received, the timer stops. The ultrasonic sensor output is a high pulse with similar duration as the time alteration between transmitted ultrasonic bursts and the received echo signal.

The global ultrasonic sensor market is anticipated to witness significant growth during the forecast period. Factors, such as growing use of ultrasonic sensors for object detection, pallet detection, and distance measurement across numerous industries, drive the growth of ultrasonic sensor market. The product is also widely used in the food & beverages industry for various purposes such as material handling, processing, and hygiene detection. However, limitation of ultrasonic sensors, such as limited detection range, is a major restraint to the global ultrasonic sensor market. In addition, growing demand from the healthcare sector for numerous applications, such as echocardiograms and echo graphs, is expected to create opportunities for the ultrasonic sensor industry.

The key players of the market focus on introducing technologically advanced products to remain competitive in the market. Partnership, product launch, acquisition, and expansion are expected to be the prominent strategies adopted by the market players. Europe accounted for a major share of the market in 2020, owing to the presence of major players in the region; however, Asia-Pacific is expected to grow at the highest CAGR, owing to rise in adoption of ultrasonic sensor in a variety of fields.
