Sensors

As Quoted In Forbes

Demand will be fueled in part by government mandates requiring that all new light vehicles be equipped with electronic stability control and tire pressure monitoring systems.

US sales to climb 6.1% annually through 2016

US sales of sensors are forecast to climb at a 6.1 percent annual rate through 2016 to $14.9 billion, showing significant improvement over market performance from 2006 to 2011. Demand will primarily be fueled by a rebound in motor vehicle production and government mandates requiring that all new light vehicles be equipped with electronic stability control and tire pressure monitoring systems. Growth in machinery and process manufacturers’ output will also support market gains. Further development of, and new applications for, technologies such as microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), optoelectronics, and photoelectronics will also help bolster sensor sales. However, the maturity of many sensor markets and improved fabrication techniques that have led to increased sensing abilities at lower costs will temper value gains. In addition, the manufacture of many sensor-laden products, such as consumer electronic devices, has moved overseas, which will further limit market advances.

Process variable sensors to remain largest category

Process variable sensors will remain the largest product category in 2016, approaching $4 billion, while chemical property sensors and proximity and positioning sensors will post the fastest growth, averaging 9.7 percent and 7.9 percent per year, respectively. Chemical sensor sales will be boosted by technological advances that have resulted in smaller, more precise sensors at lower costs, allowing them to be used for additional applications in existing markets, as well as in a number of new markets.

The rebound in motor vehicle production, and an expected increase in aftermarket demand for engine oxygen sensors, will provide growth opportunities for chemical sensors used in vehicle emission systems. Proximity and positioning sensor demand will be spurred by output increases for motor vehicles, where these devices are important components in active safety systems like electronic stability control. The renewed strength in output of machinery, another important market for proximity and positioning sensors, will also support sales gains.

Motor vehicles to reclaim top sensor market position

By 2011, industrial applications had overtaken motor vehicles to become the largest major sensor market. However, motor vehicles will once again become the leading sensor market, expanding at a 13 percent annual rate to $4.4 billion in 2016 and accounting for over half of all dollar gains between 2011 and 2016. This growth will be due to a continuing rebound in motor vehicle production and new, sensor-heavy systems including cylinder deactivation, direct fuel injection, electronic stability control, roll-over protection, tire pressure monitoring, and variable-valve timing systems.

Study Scope

This study analyzes the $11.1 billion US sensors industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2001, 2006 and 2011, and forecasts for 2016 and 2021 by sensor type (e.g., process variable, physical property, proximity and positioning, chemical property, electrical property, imaging) and market (e.g., industrial, motor vehicles, military/aerospace, electronic, medical, consumer electrical and electronic, information technology).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 40 industry competitors, including Honeywell, Sensata Technologies, and Northrop Grumman. .
