Sensors are the device which sense the changes in some characteristics of its environment and convert it into measurable response. Sensors are used for a system to react or operate as per the changes in the environment. For example, excess smoke in a room or building will be sensed and alarm sound indicates the danger; sprinklers start in case of fire. Different types of sensors are available for different physical conditions.

Position sensors are used to quantify the displacement. This displacement can be both linear and angular displacement. This report explains the type and technologies used by the position sensors. Also, the market for the forecast period of 2015-2020 is illustrated with the driving forces in different regions.

PNI Sensor Corporation, Texas Instruments, Asahi Kasei Corporation, Robert Bosch GMBH are some of the companies among those who supply these sensors to different industries such as Automotive, Food & Beverage, Medical and others. The position sensors find applications in mobile phones, label detectors, high precision measurements in tough environments and more.
