The Global Market for Proximity Sensors, Photoelectric Sensors, and Limit Switches
Published: May 31, 2018 Content info: 29 Pages, 44 Exhibits
Description

The market for proximity sensors, photoelectric sensors, and limit switches is mature, characterized by evolutionary change in technology and applications, rather than transformative revolution. With well-established applications, pricing pressure, and a largely conservative customer base limiting opportunities for rapid revenue growth, sensor suppliers must focus on execution, efficiencies, and specialized areas of differentiation.

WHAT QUESTIONS ARE ADDRESSED?

  • What is the future outlook for proximity sensors, photoelectric sensors, and limit switches?
  • Which sensing technologies will drive proximity sensor revenue growth?
  • What applications and which industries are fueling increased position sensor use?
  • Which region will provide the strongest growth opportunities?
  • How will the expectations and requirements of engineers evolve over the next few years?
  • Which suppliers are in the best strategic position for market growth?
