Sensors

US sensor demand will grow 4.3 percent annually through 2012, supported by increasing output of major sensor-containing products such as motor vehicles. Sensors based on new technologies (e.g., MEMS-based, imaging) will see the fastest gains. The automotive industry will remain the biggest market while growth in military and aerospace uses will also be strong.

This study analyzes the $10.3 billion US sensor industry. It presents historical demand data (1997, 2002 and 2007) and forecasts for 2012 and 2017 by sensor type (e.g., process variable, physical property, proximity and positioning, chemical property, electrical property, imaging), and market (e.g., motor vehicles, industrial, military/aerospace, electronic security).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 38 major players, including Honeywell, Northrop Grumman and Emerson Electric.
