Level Sensor Market

The level sensor is a device that is used in monitoring, managing, and measuring liquids and determines the level of fluids or other substances that flow in an open or closed system. The increased digitalization and adoption of different intelligent devices have hiked the level sensor market and the increase is steady. The mounting industrial automation and development of miniaturization technology in electronic devices will lead to the adoption of level sensors in different industry verticals, resulting in the growth of the market. Some industries using the device are food and beverages, oil and gas, consumer goods, industrial manufacturing, etc. The level sensors detect precise and accurate leakage and their application is critical in the automobile industry. Level sensors are widely applied to measure water level, tank level, distance range, and object revelation, as well as wireless level monitoring in hydraulic places and as cooling circuits in nuclear power plants.

The COVID-19 outbreak has affected the global economy and has reduced operations, temporary factory closures, and import-export ban. Thus, there is a disruption in the global supply chain that has reduced production and decreased spending for new measurement systems and sensors.

Market Segmentation

Insight by Technology

The global level sensor market is divided by technology into contact-level sensors and non-contact-level sensor segments. The former is further sectioned into the guided wave, magnetostrictive, hydrostatic, magnetic & mechanical float, pneumatic, and other segments. The non-contact level sensors segment, on the other hand, is subdivided into ultrasonic, microwave, or radar, and other segments and is expected to grow higher.

Insight by Monitoring Type

According to the monitoring type, the global level sensors market is also divided into continuous level monitoring and point level monitoring segments. The point level monitoring is subdivided into capacitance, optical, conductivity, vibrating, and float switch segments. The continuous level monitoring segment is, however, expected to grow at a higher rate during the forecast period due to higher adoption in measuring and monitoring levels of liquids.

Insight by Industry Vertical

According to the industry vertical, the global level sensor market is divided into food & beverage, power generation, mining and metal processing, automobile, aerospace & defense, energy & power, healthcare, industrial manufacturing, oil & gas, water and wastewater, chemical, consumer, and other segments. Out of all these segments, the oil & gas segment is expected to grow at a higher rate during the forecast period due to the growing demand for level sensors for monitoring storage and downstream processing plants. Moreover, the growing production of crude oil in different countries also increases its growth prospects. In the automobile segment, there is a growing adoption of these sensors to measure the volume of fuel in the tank, windshield cleaning liquid, power steering liquid, cooling water, and engine oil.

Industry Dynamics

Industry Trends

A growing adoption of Industry 4.0 practices has been noticed, which paves the way for higher usage of level sensors. The growing investment in smart city development is also a notable trend that has pushed the use of these sensors to detect the flow of water bodies and sewage. In addition, increased R&D activities to design innovative digital sensors and the growing adoption of contactless technologies due to strict government regulations and rising environmental concerns are also a few significant trends prevailing in the level sensor market.

Growth Drivers

The global level sensor market is primarily growing due to the compact size and higher efficiency of the sensors. The compact size adds to its versatility in application, and the tech integration offers more precision, both driving the market growth significantly. The cost-effectiveness of these sensors has also resulted in higher adoption and growth, just as the rising popularity of IIoT and the production of vehicles have. The rising demand for home automation and consumer convenience will also propel the market growth.


The major players competing with each other to produce high-quality products is hampering the market growth. In addition, the growing adoption of thin-film technology also hinders market growth, just as the growing concerns over privacy and security. Furthermore, the cost of integration is also quite high thereby affecting the market growth apart from the fact that deploying these sensors in the system-on-chip (SoC) does not offer the desired reliability and scalability.


The growth opportunities for the global level sensor market are presented by the advent of nano-enabled sensors and the technological advancement in accessing digital-level sensors.

Geographic Overview

North America leads the market due to the presence of a large number of manufacturers. It is also attributed to the significant rise in drilling activities within the oil & gas reserves in the region.

The APAC region is also expected to grow at a higher rate during the forecast period due to the large number of mining, petrochemical processing, refineries, automotive, and pharmaceutical industries that need to use these level sensors. The steady supply from countries like China, Korea, and Japan helps cater to the high demand for these sensors, which fuels the market growth further.
