Monday 4 April 2016, Amsterdam

Market Research Report Press Release The report, now available on ASDReports, "Position Sensor Market by Type (Linear & Rotary), Contact Type (Contact & Non-Contact), Output, Application (Test Equipment, Material Handling, Machine Tools, Motion Systems, & Robotics), Industry, and Region - Global Trend and Forecast to 2022" , the position sensor market is estimated to reach USD 5.85 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 6.1% between 2016 and 2022. The increasing integration of position sensors in automotive and growing trends of industrial automation among others are the major drivers for the position sensor market.

Linear position sensors are expected to lead the position sensor market

Linear position sensors are one of the most commonly used devices for position sensing. The growth is precedential due to the growing adoption of linear sensor types such as encoders, linear variable differential transformers (LVDTs), magnetostrictive sensors, potentiometers, and others in application areas such machine tools, material handling, robotics, and others to determine the linear position or displacement of the target and provide information in the form of feedback to facilitate control activities.

The market in the robotics application expected to grow at a high rate

Robotics is expected to be one of the major applications for position sensors in the coming years. Position sensors play a vital role in the operation of a robot. It provides significant information in the form of electronic signals to the controller, which helps the robots to do its tasks. Position sensors such as encoders, potentiometers, and resolvers are widely used in robotics for sensing and controlling the position of robots. Moreover, the increasing adoption of robotics in various industries such as manufacturing, automotive and others is expected to drive the market for position sensors in the near future.

Asia-Pacific expected to grow at a high rate between 2016 and 2022

Asia-Pacific is anticipated to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period. The growth can be attributed to the high demand from manufacturing, packaging, and automotive industries in this region for position sensors. Additionally, the growing trend of industrial automation in Asia-Pacific is expected to fuel the position sensor market further.
