Sensors to 2016

  1. 1. Sensors to 2016Report Details:Published:November 2012No. of Pages: 335Price: Single User License – US$5100This study analyzes the US sensors industry. It presents historical demand data (2001, 2006,2011) and forecasts for 2016 and 2021 by sensor type (e.g., process variable, physical property,proximity and positioning, electrical property, chemical property, imaging) and market (e.g., motorvehicles, industrial, military/aerospace, medical, electronic security, consumer electrical andelectronic, information technology). The study also considers market environment factors, reviewstechnology, evaluates company market share and profiles industry competitors.US demand to rise 6.1% annually through 2016US sales of sensors are forecast to climb at a 6.1 percent annual rate through 2016 to $14.9billion, showing significant improvement over market performance between 2006 and 2011.Demand will be fueled by rebounds in motor vehicle and machinery production, governmentmandates requiring all new light vehicles to be equipped with electronic stability control and tirepressure monitoring systems, and growth in process manufacturers’ shipments. Furtherdevelopment of and new applications for technologies like microelectromechanical systems(MEMS), optoelectronics, and photoelectronics will also help bolster sensor sales. However, thematurity of many sensor markets and improved fabrication techniques that have led to increasedsensing abilities at lower costs will temper value gains. In addition, the manufacture of manysensor-laden products, such as consumer electronic devices, has moved overseas, which willfurther limit market advances.Chemical property sensors among fastest growingProcess variable sensors will remain the largest product category in dollar terms in 2016, whilechemical property sensors and proximity and positioning sensors will post the fastest growth.Chemical sensor sales will be boosted by technological advances that have resulted in smaller,more precise sensors at lower costs, allowing them to be used for additional applications inexisting markets, as well as in a number of new markets. The rebound in motor vehicle production,and an expected increase in aftermarket demand for engine oxygen sensors, will provide growthopportunities for chemical sensors used in vehicle emission systems. Proximity and positioningsensor demand will be spurred by output gains for motor vehicles, where these devices areimportant components in active safety systems like electronic stability control. The renewedstrength in shipments of machinery, another important market for proximity and positioningsensors, will also support sales gains.
  2. 2. Motor vehicles to reclaim position as largest marketIn 2011, industrial applications overtook motor vehicles to become the largest major sensor marketdue to still low levels of motor vehicle production compared to earlier peaks. However, thanks to acontinuing rebound in motor vehicle output and new, sensor-heavy systems — including cylinderdeactivation, direct fuel injection, electronic stability control, roll-over protection, tire pressuremonitoring, and variable-valve timing systems — motor vehicles will once again become theleading sensor market, accounting for over half of all dollar gains between 2011 and 2016.COMPANY PROFILESProfiles 39 industry competitors such as Emerson Electric, Honeywell, Northrup Grumman, RobertBosch, Schneider Electric and SensataAdditional InformationThis study analyzes the US market for sensor products, defined as sensors, associatedtransducers, and housing. The specific products covered are process variable sensors (pressure,temperature, flow and level, humidity, etc.), physical property sensors (speed, motion, load andforce, vibration and shock, etc.), proximity and positioning sensors, electrical property sensors(voltage, current, resistance, etc.), chemical property sensors (gas detectors and other types),imaging sensors, and sensors measuring various miscellaneous properties (acoustics/sound,altitude, color, contraband, lighting conditions, smoke, etc.). Excluded from the scope of the studyare biosensors, as well as the value of electronic subsystems, instrumentation, or other types oflarger products into which sensors and transducers are installed. Historical and forecast demandby end user/application (motor vehicles, industrial, military/aerospace, medical, electronic security,consumer electronics, information technology, and others) are also provided.The study places the sensor market in context through an in-depth overview of marketenvironment conditions. In addition to providing economic background, the Market Environmentsection examines market volatility and pricing patterns, and discusses international activity andforeign trade. A section is devoted to providing a technology overview on sensors. Finally, thestudy is concluded with an analysis of the industry structure, market share, and the key industrycompetitive variables, as well as profiles of representative companies within the industry.Historical data (2001, 2006, and 2011) and forecasts to the years 2016 and 2021 are provided fordemand, shipments and net imports for the sensor product category as a whole. Historical dataand forecasts for detailed product classifications and markets are presented as sales in currentdollars. As used in this study, the term “shipment” includes all production from US manufacturingsites that is then shipped to both US and foreign markets. The term “demand” – - usedinterchangeably with “market,” “sales,” and “consumption” — is defined as all shipments from USplants, plus imports, minus exports. Tabular details may not add to totals due to independentrounding, and some ratios are based on unrounded numbers. Throughout the study, demand forsensors is related to various indicators for comparative purposes and to facilitate further analysis.Macroeconomic and demographic indicators in this study were obtained from The FreedoniaGroup Consensus Forecasts dated August 2012. Because of the Bureau of Economic Analysis’use of chain-weighted price indexes, inflationadjusted Gross Domestic Product components (2005dollars) do not necessarily add to the total.
  3. 3. A wide variety of primary and secondary sources were used in the compilation of this report,including government publications, industry participants, online databases and other Freedoniastudies. Historical data are based on US Bureau of the Census figures, including the AnnualSurvey of Manufactures. These base and supporting data were adjusted as necessary in light ofconsultation with personnel of participating companies and other industry contacts. Secondarydata and background information were obtained from various trade publications, includingAppliance, Automotive News, Sensors, Sensors & Transducers, and Test & Measurement World.Corporate annual reports, SEC Form 10-K filings, product catalogs, and other companyprovidedinformation were used extensively in framing the industry environment and as input for market sizeassessment.Get your copy of this report @ points covered in Table of Contents of this report includeTABLE OF CONTENTSINTRODUCTION IXI.
