The Position Sensor Market is projected to achieve a significant milestone, reaching a valuation of USD 9.8 billion by 2030. This growth is attributed to its expanding presence in the manufacturing industry, driven by the increasing need for precise measurements and comprehensive inspection. Furthermore, the adoption of position sensors in the aviation, aerospace, and automotive sectors is rapidly gaining momentum. With their widespread usage across various industry verticals, the demand for position sensors is poised to experience a substantial surge, contributing to the market's upward trajectory.
Now a day’s multiple sensor types are used in products to enhance their functioning and get more accurate results. The position sensor is used in a device to measure the distance traveled by a device from a certain reference position. The sensor measures both linear as well as angular position. Also, the sensor can be used to sense the presence or absence of an entity.
Insight by Types
On the basis of type, the market is segmented as linear sensor and rotary sensor. The linear sensor is further broken down into linear encoders, linear variable differential transformers (LVDT), magnetostrictive sensors, linear potentiometers, laser position sensors. Whereas, the rotary sensor is segmented as rotary encoders, rotary potentiometers, rotary variable differential transformers, and resolvers. Among these types, the rotary position sensor segment captures a higher market share in 2022 and is expected to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period, owing to its numerous applications in automotive, aviation, healthcare, consumer electronics, and other emerging areas.
Insight by Contact Type
On the basis of contact type, the market is subdivided into contact and non-contact. Among these, non-contact type sensor accounted for the foremost share in the position sensor market in 2019 due to high precision and adoption in multiple industries.
Insight by Application
On the basis of application, the market is subdivided into machine tools, robotics, motion systems, material handling, and test equipment. Of all these applications, the machine tools segment accounted for a foremost share in the position sensor market in 2023, owing to the integration of these sensor types in multiple tools used in manufacturing such as an automated guided vehicles, robots, cobots, and processing machines.
