Global Capacitive Displacement Sensors Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Capacitive displacement sensors are devices that use capacitance to determine the distance between two points. They are often used in industrial applications to measure the position or movement of objects. Capacitive displacement sensors can be very accurate and are able to provide feedback quickly, making them ideal for high-speed applications.

Variable Distance Type:

Variable distance type is a variable capacitive sensor, which utilizes two conductive plates separated by an insulator and can move between them in response to changes in the electrical field. The variable distance sensors are used for measuring the proximity of objects and fluctuation levels. They are also used as position sensors in various industrial applications such as robotics, assembly line monitoring systems, material handling equipment, etc.

Variable Area Type:

Variable area type is a sensor technology that utilizes variable-sized sensing elements to measure the flow or level of a liquid or gas. These are mainly used in capacitive displacement sensors, which detect changes in the capacitance of an electrode as a function of fluid level.

The variable area type can be used with any material and has no restrictions on its size, shape, and materials composition.

Application Insights:

The automotive application segment led the global market in 2017 and is projected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. The capacitive displacement sensors are used for various applications such as electronic stability controls, rollover detection, and airbag deployment in vehicles. Furthermore, they are also used for vehicle safety systems such as anti-lock braking system (ABS), electronic stability control (ESC), and tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS).

Capacitive displacement sensors have a wide range of uses across several industries including aerospace & defense, pharmaceuticals, food & beverage processing equipment manufacturing facilities automation sectors among others. They provide accurate solutions at low costs which makes them suitable across numerous applications areas. In addition to this they also offer features such as high resolution output signal that can be utilized by microcontrollers within automated systems or industrial machinery etc., which further boosts their demand across multiple industry verticals globally.
