Position and Proximity Sensors Market Forecast a Steady Growth at 4.6% CAGR, Projected to Hit USD 3.0 billion by 2031 | Transparency Market Research, Inc.

The expansion of the automotive industry, as well as the increased incorporation of ambient light sensors, are driving the position and proximity sensors market.

Wilmington, Delaware, United States, Jan. 29, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Transparency Market Research Inc. - The global position and proximity sensors market was projected to attain US$ 2.7 billion in 2022. It is anticipated to garner a 4.6% CAGR from 2022 to 2031. By 2031, the market is likely to attain US$ 3 billion by 2031.

Position and proximity sensors are electrical devices equipped with sensors that can detect the location and presence of things remotely. These sensors are widely used in robotics, automation, and industrial control. They are intended to detect the location or displacement of an item around a reference point.

Linear motion sensors monitor linear or angular displacement and produce information about the object's direction and speed. These sensors can also detect the existence of things at a distance utilizing techniques such as infrared, ultrasonic, capacitive, and magnetic fields.
