Global Laser Displacement Sensor Market: Snapshot
The global laser displacement sensor market is benefiting from the rising trend of industrial automation which is receiving government support in several parts of the world. This is leading laser displacement sensors to find applications across high-value areas such as robotics, machine tools, and material handling among others.
Apart from this, increasing use of laser displacement sensors in consumer electronics and automotive sectors along with their rising demand from other industries is positively influencing the global market for laser displacement sensor. Further, laser displacement sensors are free of limitations that are exhibited by contact type displacement sensors which is leading to their rising uptake.
On the flip side, high price factor and high maintenance of laser displacement sensor are proving to be a roadblock to the market’s growth.
As per a report by Transparency Market Research (TMR), the global laser displacement sensor market stood at US$2,713.2 mn in 2016. Expanding at a CAGR of 7.6% for the forecast period between 2017 and 2025, the market will likely reach a valuation of US$5201.4 mn by 2025-end.
Automotive End-use Segment Likely to Stay Attractive
The report studies the global laser displacement sensor on the basis of a few parameters, viz. range, end-use, and geography. On the basis of range, the segments into which the global laser displacement sensor market is divided are less than 100mm, 100mm to 300 mm, and more than 300mm. Of them, the segment of more than 300mm range holds dominance in the overall market. This is mainly because of the availability of an extensive range of sensors in this segment. In the coming years too, the more than 300mm range segment is expected to display relatively faster growth over other segments based on range.
In terms of end-use, the global laser displacement sensor market has been segmented into automotive, industrial, aerospace and defense, and others. Amongst all, the segment of automotive held the leading share in 2016 and going forward too the segment is expected to hold on to its dominant position. The growth of the automotive sector is attributed to the extensive use of laser displacement sensors in the automotive sector to support the automated processes herein.
Home to a Well-established Manufacturing Industry Makes Asia Pacific Leader
The global laser displacement sensor market, by geography, has been segmented into North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, South America, and the Middle East and Africa. Geographically, Asia Pacific led the global laser displacement sensor market in 2016 accounting for the leading revenue share. Powered by growth in China, India, Japan, and Korea the region is expected to continue to dominate over the forecast between 2017 and 2025. The growth of Asia Pacific laser displacement sensor market is attributed to the well-established manufacturing sector along with the presence of a large number of laser displacement sensor vendors. In addition, initiatives undertaken by several governments in the region, for instance, the ‘Make in India’ initiative by the Indian government to put India among the key manufacturing countries in the world is benefitting this regional market.
While North America held substantial dominance in the global market in the previous years, in 2016, the region slipped to a close second to Asia Pacific. Europe market for laser displacement sensor is anticipated to rise at a significant rate to closely trail North America over the forecast period. Germany and countries in Western Europe are majorly fuelling the growth in this region.
