is a sensor which is used in electronics devices to detect the presence of nearby objects without any physical contact. Such sensors generally emits an electromagnetic field or a beam of electromagnetic radiation (infrared, for instance), and detects changes in the field or return signal. The object being sensed is often referred to as the proximity sensor's target. Different proximity sensor targets demand different sensors. Proximity sensors are commonly used on smartphones, tablets, laptops to detect (and skip) unnecessary touchscreen taps when held to the ear during a call. Proximity sensors are also used in machine vibration monitoring to measure the variation in distance between a shaft and its support bearing. Globally increasing demand for the mobile devices is expected to drive the demand for the proximity sensor ICs during the period of study.
This report identifies the
global proximity sensors ICs market
size in for the year 2014-2016, and forecast of the same for year 2021. It also highlights the potential growth opportunities in the coming years, while also reviewing the market drivers, restraints, growth indicators, challenges, market dynamics, competitive landscape, and other key aspects with respect to proximity sensors ICs market.
Geographically, Asia-Pacific dominated the proximity sensors ICs market due to higher demand of the proximity sensors ICs in the major end-use industries manufacturing electronics devices in the region. Asia-Pacific was followed by North America and Europe as the second and third largest consumer of proximity sensors ICs. Asia Pacific is projected to the have fastest growth, owing to rapidly expanding industrial base, increasing demand for the electronics devices in the region due to expanding technological network especially in the major regional economies such as India and China in the region.
