This report covers the impact of COVID-19 on this global market

According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Distance Measurement Sensors Market is accounted for $2.84 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach $3.86 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 4.5% during the forecast period. Sensors are used in everyday life in every electronic product & with the advancement in technologies, the demand of instrumentation and automation has been increasing over the years and expected to grow further in the upcoming future with highest possible demand. One such product from this category is the distance measurement sensor. As the name, itself defines that it is used in detecting or tracing the distance between two objects. A distance measurement sensor is a sensor that is utilized to rapidly and precisely measure distances on a wide range of materials, places, etc. It can effectively check distances, the position of system or parts, and monitor different parameters to intelligently and independently initiate action, and these sensors supply an analogue signal representing the distance proportional to the selected sensor’s range.

Market Dynamics:

Driver:

Growing utilization in automobiles


Distance measurement sensors have been included in automobile vehicles like trucks, buses to provide the information of the surrounding of the vehicle to the driver which increases the safety factor and hence it is coming out as a new trend for the distance measurement sensor market. The sensor contains a noise measurement system and an auto-change facility of the signal that is used to drive the transmitter, thus producing the best accuracy under different conditions. Tests have been performed in real driving conditions and have shown a regular behavior of the sensor under all typical driving maneuvers for speeds of up to 33 m/s (120 km/h). The sensor features a simple and costless analog processing of the signal without employing microprocessors.

Restraint:

Inflexible probing


One of the major problem is the rigidity of the probe itself. The inability to control wave emissions during the testing phase will produce a limited scale of an object’s structural profile. Additionally, conventional ultrasonic testing can be so rigid that it may overlook small flaws. With standard probes, linear flaws that run parallel to the beam itself will go unnoticed. Standard UT tends to come with fixed angles that cannot be adjusted during testing. Without the ability to angle beams accordingly, there is a chance that certain awkwardly positioned flaws will escape the probe’s wave beams. With phased array scanning, analysts can customize the inspection criterion based on the object under observation.

Opportunity:

Rising demand from end user industries


Distance measurement sensors are used in varying end users like packaging, automation, robotics, safety systems and consumer electronics for varying purposes. Most companies manufacture a mixture of distance measurement sensors, proximity and displacement sensors and customize them based on the needs of the end consumer. Most of the end user segments of the distance sensors market are exclusively classified by the sensing technologies used in distance measurement, the end user applications and by the measurement technique used in the sensors. Through-beam, retro-reflective and time of flight is some of the commonly used measurement techniques.

Threat:

Disruption of supply chain due to covid-19


COVID-19 pandemic has been affecting economies and industries in different countries owing to lockdowns, travel bans, and business shutdowns. The shutdown of different plants and factories has affected the global supply chains and harmfully impacted the manufacturing, delivery schedules, and sales of products in the global market. Few companies have already declared possible delays in product deliveries and slump in future sales of their products. In addition to this, the global travel bans imposed by countries in Europe, Asia-Pacific, and North America are affecting business collaborations and partnerships opportunities. The distance measurement sensors market is also negatively affected due to the pandemic owing to the shutdown of manufacturing units and considerable decline in demand.

The automotive segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The automotive segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth. In recent years, there has been a significant increase in the demand for distance measurement sensors. The electrification of vehicles has increased the usage opportunities of distance measurement sensors in the automotive sector. The potential use of distance measurement sensors in driverless cars for features such as collision detection, parking assistance, etc., is expected to drive the demand for distance measurement sensors in the automotive sector. Many automotive companies are investing in new technologies used in automatic car services. Moreover, they are also launching self-driving car services around the world that are capable of self-detecting objects and preventing collision due to the presence of distance measurement sensors in the vehicle mechanism. The automobile giants are aiming at the development of ultrasonic sensors for the Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS), which is expected to further stimulate the growth of the market. The usage of advanced technology in the automotive sector is further expected to increase the demand for distance measurement sensors in the automotive sector.

The ultrasonic sensors segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The ultrasonic sensors segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period.  Ultrasonic sensors can effectively measure different parameters, such as position, presence, and level of an object in a medium. Ultrasonic sensors can be largely classified into - measurement, detection, and destruction of objects. Ultrasonic sensors can also be utilized for the non-destructive evaluation of objects, together with the inspection and quantitative testing of industrial structures and health monitoring of old buildings. They are also able to measure an approaching or receding object. By using “non-contact” ultrasonic sensors, distances can be measured without damage to the object. They’re easy to use and, in many cases, can be used in place of other traditional sensors when the environmental conditions make traditional sensors unusable.

Region with highest share:

North America is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period due to the high applications of ultrasonic distance measurement and optical distance measurement. Due to the presence of several industries, there is a constant increase in the requirement for the sensors & lasers in North America. The penetration of the market is quite high in this region; the presence of some automotive and manufacturing giants is a vital growth causing factor.

Region with highest CAGR:

Europe is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period owing to the strong presence of players contributing substantially to regional market development. Distance measurement sensors not only have practical applications in flow monitoring, maintenance, and detection, but they also show promise in other areas. In this region, this sort of technology will continue to demonstrate its worth in other areas, delivering on the promise of its attractive features. Europe distance measurement sensors are widely employed in different industrial and production facilities for level measuring applications. They aid in determining the precise level of raw materials in order to enhance and maintain manufacturing quality and thus expected to grow at a substantial growth rate in the region.

Key players in the market

Key Developments:

In January 2021, Qualcomm launched a second-generation 3D Sonic Sensor with several improvements over gen-1. The 3D Sonic Sensor is an ultrasonic fingerprint reader that uses sound waves to scan a fingerprint and is mostly used as an in-display security solution. This sensor is also compatible with flexible panels that are used in foldable devices.

In February 2020, the Siemens launched ACUSON Sequoia. It helps to address industry challenges in ultrasound imaging. It offers new updates contrastenhanced ultrasound and elastography with the help of Deep Abdominal Transducer (DAX). It has penetration power up to 40cm. It enables high resolution imaging at greater depths without impacting real-time performance.
