INTRODUCTION
Internet of things (IoT), industrial internet of things, smart cities and smart buildings are the buzzwords in today’s technological jargon. These terms have one thing in common—they use sensors. These concepts are dependent on sensors, and the fusion of different sensors is necessary to attain desired outcomes. Thus, sensors have become a major area for future development of various aspects of daily life.

A sensor is a type of transducer and provides various types of output, typically using electrical or optical signals. Sensors are used in everyday objects such as touch-sensitive elevator buttons and lamps that dim or brighten by touching the base in addition to numerous other applications. The use of sensors has expanded beyond the traditional fields of temperature, pressure and flow measurement.

Moreover, analog sensors such as potentiometers and force-sensing resistors are still widely used in applications that include manufacturing equipment, machinery, airplanes and aerospace applications, cars, medicine and robotics. Technological progress and the use of micromachining and microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) technology in microsensors is allowing the manufacture of an increasing number of sensors on a microscopic scale. In most cases, microsensors can reach significantly higher speeds and sensitivity compared with macroscopic sensors.

Sensors convert physical phenomena into quantities measurable by data acquisition systems and are thus an important part of many measurement and automation applications. Sensors are being used in an increasing number of industries, and applications are being continually opened in new fields. 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 users of sensors with ongoing advances in sensor accuracy, reliability, response time, robustness, miniaturization, communications capability and efficiency. The quality of sensors continues to improve as they become more specific and robust. They are able to impart more information yet are becoming less expensive because of improved production methods.

Currently, sensors are found in most areas of daily life. The need for sensors is increasing dramatically due the ongoing boom in smart mobile communication technologies and tablet PCs. Many companies are researching novel types of sensors for these applications. Mobile phones with face recognition are already on the market. Mobile phones with integrated spectrometers to measure food freshness are no longer inconceivable even though they still seem rather futuristic.

SCOPE AND FORMAT
The report has been prepared in a clear, easily understandable format with tables and figures. The scope of the report includes a detailed study of global and regional markets for various types of sensors and their applications, including an explanation of variations in industry growth by region.

This report covers only conventional sensors such as pressure, temperature, level, flow and position sensors and excludes unconventional sensors such as pointing sensors used in touch screens and touch-pads, barcode readers and radio frequency identification (RFID) readers, remote readout and intelligent power meters, gas and water meters, and remote readout heat meters).

METHODOLOGY
Both primary and secondary research methodologies were used in preparing this report. Initially, a comprehensive and exhaustive search of the literature on sensors was conducted. These sources include sensor journals and related books, trade literature, marketing literature, other product/promotional literature, annual reports, security analyst reports and other publications. The methodology used to estimate and forecast the sensor market begins with capturing data on revenue from vendors through secondary research from various sources. This bottom-up procedure used revenue of key market players to estimate the global sensors market.

After arriving at the overall market size, the total market was split into several segments and sub-segments, which were verified through research with primary sources, including conducting telephone interviews and corresponding by email with marketing executives, product sales engineers, international sales managers, application engineers and other personnel of sensor companies. Other sources included sensor magazines, academic research and communication with technology suppliers, technical experts and consulting companies. A patent search and subsequent analysis were also conducted.

All revenue estimates in this report were taken from figures at the manufacturer level and are in constant U.S. dollars, unadjusted for inflation.
