Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Global Time-of-Flight Sensor Market Growth:

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the world experienced the biggest supply chain disruptions from China; as a result, India has emerged as a strong alternative for manufacturers. Many market players are investing in the country to open their manufacturing units. Apple suppliers had moved a few of its production facilities to India. The iPhone 13 model is produced in India by Foxconn’s contract manufacturing partner. Thus, to attract more manufacturers, the Indian government is taking various steps to boost domestic electronics manufacturing, reduce import dependence, and increase exports which is further fueling the growth of time-of-flight sensor market. Various initiatives such as the Make in India program, the National Policy on Electronics (2019), the Production Linked Incentive Scheme for the electronics sector, the Modified Special Incentives Scheme, and the Electronics Manufacturing Clusters (EMC) Scheme are providing incentives for domestic manufacturing, localization of electronics manufacturing, attracting foreign direct investment, and increasing exports. In addition, India has a strong position in the global heavy vehicles market; the country is the 2nd largest bus manufacturer and 3rd largest heavy truck manufacturer worldwide. In September 2021, the Indian government issued a notification regarding the PLI scheme for automobile and auto components worth US$ 3.49 billion. This scheme is expected to collect over US$ 5.74 billion in investments by 2026. Moreover, the investment flow into EV start-ups has increased by ~255%, reaching US$ 444 million in 2021. Thus, the growing consumer electronics & automotive sector in the country will boost the time-of-flight sensor market in India in the coming years.

According to GSMA, the smartphone adoption rate in the region reached 68% in 2020, which is expected to increase to 83% by 2025. Thus, the growing demand for smartphones in the region is raising the requirement for time-of-flight sensors, propelling the growth of the time-of-flight sensor market. The growing demand for other consumer electronic devices such as tablets, PCs, laptops, and others in Asian countries will also boost the growth of the Asia Pacific time-of-flight sensor market in the coming years.

Global Time-of-Flight Sensor Market – Regional Insights:

Based on region, the size is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America. According to the time-of-flight sensor market analysis, Asia Pacific is likely to witness the highest growth during the forecast period.

In Asia Pacific, China is the largest manufacturer of consumer electronic devices. According to Nikkei Inc., the Chinese government is working on various plans to expand the country's domestic electronic market by investing US$ 327 billion till 2023. In addition, the Indian government is expanding the electronics market in the country. According to the Ministry of Electronics & IT, initiatives by the Indian government and efforts of the industry have led to the domestic production of electronic goods with revenue of US$ 74.7 billion in 2020 and a CAGR of 17.9%. A few government policies for electronics manufacturing include the Production Linked Incentive (PLI) Schemes, the Scheme for Promotion of Manufacturing of Electronic Components and Semiconductors (SPECS) , and the Modified Electronics Manufacturing Cluster (EMC 2.0) Scheme. Furthermore, the electronics sector in Asia Pacific accounts for 20–50% of Asia's total value of exports. As Asia Pacific is the largest electronic manufacturer, the demand for time-of-flight sensors will rise across the region during the forecast period. Sony Group Corp, OMRON Corp, Panasonic Holdings Corp, and Keyence Corp are among the market players that manufacture time-of-flight sensors across Asia Pacific which further boost the growth of time-of-flight sensor market.
