Analysis of the Proximity, Displacement Sensors Markets

May 31, 2012

Research and Markets offers the Frost & Sullivan analysis of the worldwide market for proximity and displacement sensors.

DUBLIN, Ireland -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Research and Markets has announced the addition of Frost & Sullivan's new report "Analysis of the Proximity and Displacement Sensors Markets" to its offering.

This research titled Analysis of the Proximity and Displacement Sensors Markets provides an overview of key competitive, pricing and technology trends for different sensor types. It also discusses industry challenges, market drivers and restraints besides offering revenue forecasts and end-user analysis. In this research, Frost & Sullivan's expert analysts thoroughly examine the following product types: inductive, photoelectric, capacitive, magnetic, ultrasonic and LVDT sensors. The research covers markets in North America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC) and Rest-of-World. It examines end user industries such as automotive, process, pulp and paper, food and beverage, manufacturing, printing, elevators and escalators, packaging, industrial equipment and metals and mining.

Asia Offers Exciting Growth Potential
Growth in mature markets such as Western Europe and North America is expected to be slow. The potential for further growth is limited as most industrial processes are already using proximity and displacement sensors. In contrast, Asia is becoming progressively more important due to surging production and automation. Production in emerging economies, such as China and India, is becoming increasingly automated, explains the analyst. Robust economic growth in these regions is expected fuel the demand for proximity and displacement sensors. Proximity sensors find application in almost every industry (due to the importance of feedback), underlining the widespread consumer demand for them. In addition to China and India, growth opportunities are also surfacing in other smaller Asian countries that have embarked on a path of economic development.
