are sensors that detect position, speed, temperature, air quality and distance using non-contact technology. These sensors are solid-state electronic devices which generate electromagnetic field or beam to detect any disturbance in that particular field. Since stationary parts are used for sensing, less maintenance is required. These sensors are reliable; operate faster; work with more accuracy and have many flexible applications in compassion with contact sensors. Hence, this market is fast growing and demanding.
The market has been segmented by sensor types and end user industry verticals. Sensors such as temperature sensors, pressure sensors, proximity sensors, ultrasonic sensors and other are based on non-contact technology. By industry vertical, the market has been classified as consumer electronics, automotive, healthcare, defense and many more sectors.
Proximity and flow sensors are forecasted to be the fastest growing product segment in non-contact sensors market. In the U.S., the growth of proximity sensor is increasing in commercial and healthcare sectors. High progress of the market is forecasted due to ever-increasing demand in the automotive industry. These sensors are required to maintain safety in the vehicle, therefore, are used for applications such as wheel speed sensing systems, engine and transmission management.
The market is also analyzed based on geographic regions which are grouped into Americas, APAC, Europe as well as RoW regions. Americas is the leading market of non-contact sensors. The demand is continuously increasing due to application of these sensors in defense, aerospace, chemical processing and automotive vehicular production industries. Europe followed by APAC is the other dominant region of the market. Growing commercial vehicle industry is expected to drive this market in APAC region.Sample Companies Profiled in this Report are:
