Market Overview:

The global linear position sensors market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in this market can be attributed to the increasing demand for linear position sensors in various applications such as aerospace & defence, consumer electronics, medical equipments, automotive & marine and other applications. Additionally, the growing demand for miniaturized and low-voltage linear position sensors is also contributing to the growth of this market.

Global Linear Position Sensors Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Linear position sensors are devices that can determine the position of an object within a straight line. They are commonly used in industrial and manufacturing settings to monitor the movement or positioning of objects along a production line. Linear position sensors can be either optical or magnetic in nature, and can provide extremely accurate readings.

LVIT Linear Position Sensors:

Linear position sensors are linear devices that are used to measure the position of a part or assembly relative to another point. They can be used in various applications such as robotics, machine vision systems, inspection and metrology equipment. The technology is relatively new and has been evolving rapidly over the past few years owing to increasing demand from application areas.

LVDT Linear Position Sensors:

Linear position sensors are used to measure the linear position of a part or assembly. It is an instrument that provides measurement of only one dimension and can be used for both vertical and horizontal positioning. The other type of sensor is rotary which measures both X, Y & Z dimensions simultaneously but at different times; it’s cost-effective nature makes it preferable in most applications where only one dimensional measurement is required.

Application Insights:

The automotive & marine application segment led the global market in 2017. The growth can be attributed to the increasing demand for Global Positioning Systems (GPS) devices in automobiles and ships for navigation and vessel tracking applications. Moreover, rising demand for automotive electronics owing to growing consumer spending power is expected to drive the product demand over the forecast period.

The aerospace & defence segment accounted for a significant share of 21% in terms of revenue as well as volume in 2017 due to extensive use of inertial measurement units and attitude determination units by various end-use industries such as defense, aviation, space technology etc. Furthermore, technological advancements coupled with stringent regulatory norms pertaining to safety are anticipated fuel industry-wide growth during next eight years from 2018 till 2030.

Regional Analysis:

The North American region dominated the global market in 2017. The growth of this region can be attributed to the presence of major aircraft manufacturers such as Boeing and Airbus, which are actively engaged in developing advanced aerospace systems. These companies are also involved in providing services for space exploration and satellite navigation system development, thereby driving the demand for LVPS solutions across various applications.

The Asia Pacific regional market is anticipated to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to increasing investments by key players such as Honeywell International Inc.; Panasonic Corporation; and Fujitsu General Ltd., among others. The growing adoption of automation across several industries is expected to drive demand for position sensors over the forecast period. Furthermore, rising awareness regarding employee safety at work places has resulted into increased adoption of these devices across end-use industries such as automotive & marine and construction industry globally (Saravanan et al., 2016).

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for linear position sensors in automotive and industrial applications
  • Growing popularity of MEMS-based linear position sensors
  • Rising demand for miniaturized linear position sensors
  • Proliferation of smart technologies and the Internet of Things (IoT)
  • Growing adoption of precision motion control systems
