The level sensor refers to a device used to measure the level of fluid or other free-flowing substances in an open or a closed system. Two of the commonly used level sensors include continuous and point level measurement sensors. The continuous level sensors measure levels to a specific limit; on the other hand, the point level monitoring sensors determine the level of fluids above or below or specific point. They monitor the level by establishing contact or non-contact technologies, such as magnetostriction, vibratory probes, ultrasonic waves and microwaves. Once the desired level is detected inside the container, the sensor converts the perceived data into an electric signal. As a result, level sensors find extensive applications across various industries, including oil & gas, energy and power, food & beverage, metals and mining, chemicals and pharmaceuticals.
The rapid digitization and automation across industries are among the key factors driving the growth of the market. Level sensors are extensively used for measuring the water level, tank level, distance ranging, object detection and wireless level monitoring in hydraulic power packs and cooling circuits in nuclear power plants. Additionally, various technological advancements, such as the integration of level sensors with laser and ultrasonic technologies and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), are acting as other growth-inducing factors. These innovative technologies enable precise, wireless and remote monitoring of fluid levels in the reservoirs. Manufacturers are also developing optical liquid sensors that provide precise level measurement and resistance to corrosion against chemical reagents. Other factors, including the adoption of nano-digital sensors and the advent of industry 4.0, along with extensive research and development (R&D) activities, are anticipated to drive the market further.
