Sensors convert physical phenomenon into a quantity measurable by a data acquisition system and thus are an important part of any measurement and automation application. Sensors are being used in an increasing number of industries and applications, while continually opening up new fields of application. Today's production technologies, modern vehicles, innovative medical devices, smart power supply systems and building technologies are inconceivable without sensors. Advanced electronic control systems provide sensor users ongoing advances in sensor accuracy, reliability, response time, robustness, miniaturization, communications capability and efficiencies. Sensors also continue to improve in quality as they become more specific and robust, often smarter and more communicative and yet they are becoming less expensive because of improved production methods.
Sensors are found in most spheres of life today. The need for sensors is increasing dramatically with the ongoing boom in smart mobile communication technologies and tablet PCs. Many companies are already researching novel types of sensors for these applications. Mobile phones with face recognition are just around the corner. Cell phones with integrated spectrometers to measure food freshness are no longer inconceivable, even though at present they seem a rather long way off.
This report studies and highlights the role of sensors in various applications, explains the technology and innovation behind sensor development and production, and gives a market overview, analyzing major market trends both in terms of region and application sector. In addition, the report studies in detail the new developments taking place in the sensor industry with respect to continuous improvements in environmental performance. The report analyzes the market for various types of sensors as well as for the technologies involved. The market for various emerging technologies in sensors as well as the new products produced using these technologies are reviewed in the report.
The report also analyzes the various applications of sensors in detail and the markets of such applications, with special emphasis on the new products being developed and the markets for these products. Along with the development of new products, research and development is taking the sensor technology to new heights, and a close look into such technologies has been made in the report. This report focuses on the need for the industry's commitment to continuous improvement in environmental performance and takes a look at a future in which the functionality of coatings will be enhanced and transformed from the conventional areas of protection and aesthetics to meet additional and more specific demands.
For any company to succeed in a competitive market, product opportunities must be identified from the viewpoint of company's strengths. For this, it is necessary to understand the size and growth rate of any opportunity and the competitive atmosphere in which the company exists. This report presents the ideal medium to understand the various exciting and growing opportunities in the field of sensors and various types of applications, and will help prospective manufacturers, distributors or even users to understand and succeed in this growing field.
The report has been prepared in a simple, easy to understand format with a number of tables and charts/figures. The scope of the report includes a detailed study of global and regional markets for various types of sensors and their applications with the reasons given for variations in the growth of the industry in certain regions.
This report only covers conventional sensors, such as pressure, temperature, level, flow and position sensors, and does not cover unconventional types of sensors such as pointing sensors (e.g., touch screens and touch-pads, barcode readers and RFID readers for identification purposes, remote-readout and intelligent power meters, gas and water meters, as well as remote-readout heat meters).
The primary information sources include manufacturers and suppliers of sensors and associated products around the world, raw material suppliers for manufacture of these products, major users of these products, research organizations, governmental agencies, trade associations and various equipment suppliers. Additional secondary research of sources, such as databases, trade literature, specialized journals and government statistics, were researched while compiling this report.
