North America Position Sensor Market
North America Position Sensor Market
A position sensor is used for measuring the actual distance traveled by a body or an object starting from its initial or reference position. It measures linear as well as an angular position with respect to a fixed point or any other arbitrary reference. These sensors are also used for detecting the presence or the absence of an object. The position or proximity information combined with the time measurements, including the speed, velocity, and acceleration are calculated for motion control. These position sensors use various sensing principles to calculate the displacement of a body.
The Position Sensor market in North America is classified into type, contact type, output, application, industry, and geography. By type, the market is divided into rotary and linear position sensors. Based on contact type, the market comprises contact and non-contact. On the basis of output, the market includes digital and analog. Robotics, material handling, test equipment, machine tools, motion systems, and packaging are the various application areas for position sensors market. On the basis of industry, the market comprises consumer electronics, automotive, healthcare, aerospace, packaging, and manufacturing.
There is a huge growth in the North American position sensor industry, especially in the linear measurement models, with predictions showing steady growth in the demand for position sensors in the near future as well.
The driving forces behind the high demand for growth in position sensors are geographically specific, with the special focus on robotics and manufacturing. The manufacturing and automation along with robotics are the main reasons for the rapid increase in the use of sensors in North America specifically the USA and Canada. The total size of the automotive manufacturing industry within the USA is considerable, with most of the industries using more and more position sensors in their automated manufacturing processes. It comes as no surprise that it is and it will in future as well continue to be one of the fastest growing sectors. The rapid increase in the use of robotics is not only confined to automotive manufacturers. However, the wide-ranging applications of the machinery will contribute to the overall growth of the linear position sensor North America market. The new generation of both linear and angular position sensors has achieved new milestones in terms of efficiency. Based on the modular system, the sensor is available for angular position measurements or for linear position measurements. The existing total range of angular position sensors and the linear position sensor opens a new scope for customers. These sensors have applications across different industries such as hydraulic valves, hydraulic controls, pneumatic controls, gear selection/shifting position electric drives. In addition to this, the ride height and level position detection, throttle valve, pedal position, steering wheel position or as a zero-contact encoder alternative are also included in the application areas for position sensors.
