INTRODUCTION

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.

SCOPE AND FORMAT

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).

METHODOLOGY

Initially, a comprehensive and exhaustive search of the literature on sensors was conducted. These sources included sensor journals and related books, trade literature, marketing literature, other product/promotional literature, annual reports, security analyst reports and other publications. A patent search and analysis were also conducted. Subsequently, telephone interviews and email correspondence was conducted with marketing executives, product sales engineers, international sales managers, application engineers and other personnel of sensor companies. Other sources included sensor magazines, academics, technology suppliers, technical experts and consulting companies.

INFORMATION SOURCES

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.
