Global Edge Sensor Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Edge sensor is a device used to detect the presence of an object at the edge of a surface. It is usually used in robotics to help machines avoid obstacles.

Laser Edge Sensors:

Edge sensors are used to detect the presence and position of an object or a line along with its distance from the sensor. They are widely used in industrial applications such as robotics, machine vision systems, inspection equipment, etc. Edge sensors have various advantages over other sensing technologies such as multi-range sensing capability and high sensitivity owing to which their demand is increasing significantly across various application areas.

Ultrasonic Edge Sensors:

Ultrasonic edge sensors are used in various applications such as smart clothing, smart textiles, and healthcare. They work on the principle of vibrations that are transduced into ultrasonic sound waves. These sensors have a wide range of applications owing to their features such as high speed and sensitivity along with low power consumption. Ultrasonic edge sensors can be used for measuring the thickness of materials or liquids without any prior physical contact being made with the material to be measured.

Application Insights:

The assembly and robotics segment dominated the global edge sensor market in terms of revenue in 2017. The automotive application is estimated to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to increasing demand for advanced vehicles with enhanced safety features. For instance, Tesla¢â‚¬â„¢s Model S has several autonomous driving features such as lane departure warning system, forward collision warning system and driver monitoring systems with adaptive cruise control that uses radar and camera sensors for sensing the environment around it. Such advanced systems require high-precision sensors that can detect even the smallest obstacles along the path ahead, which is expected to drive product demand over next seven years or so.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The growth can be attributed to rising demand for high-quality sensors from various end-use industries, such as industrial, automotive, packaging and others. Moreover, increasing investments by governments in developing countries are anticipated to boost the adoption of edge sensors across several applications. For instance, according to a white paper published by IBEF in 2018 titled “The Rise of Edge Computing”; China has been one of the early adopters of edge computing technology with more than 30% market share globally.

North America accounted for a significant revenue share owing to growing product penetration across several verticals including consumer electronics and appliances along with assembly operations at various plants/factories (e.g., automotive). Furthermore, technological advancements coupled with increased government funding for R&D activities are also driving regional growth over the forecast period.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for Edge Sensor in automotive industry for safety and security purposes
  • Rising demand from the industrial sector for process automation and quality control
  • Growing popularity of Internet of Things (IoT) and connected devices
  • Proliferation of smart cities and increasing adoption of smart technologies
  • Emergence of new applications areas such as autonomous vehicles, drones, and robotics
