Dublin, July 19, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The “Position Sensor Market by Type (Linear Sensor and Rotary Sensor), Application (Machine Tools, Robotics, Motion Systems, Material Handling, Test Equipment), Contact Type, Output, End-User Industry, and Geography – Global Forecast to 2024” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The global position sensor market was valued at USD 4,685.1 million in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 7,340.8 million by 2024; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.02% from 2019 to 2024.

In terms of volume, the global position sensor market is expected to grow from 1,645 million units in 2018 to 2,772 million units by 2024; it is expected to record a CAGR of 9.34% during the forecast period.

A position sensor is a device that permits the measurement of an absolute or relative position. These sensors are used to measure the displacement or position of a moving object or target. There are primarily 2 types of position sensors- linear position sensors and rotary position sensors. These sensors work on different sensing principles based on the movement of the object. Linear position sensors are used to measure the movement or position of an object along a straight line, whereas the rotary position sensor detects the angular or rotary movement of the object. Proximity sensors are also an important type of position sensors that are used to detect the presence of the object.

The position sensor market, in this report, has been segmented on the basis of sensor type, contact type, output, application, end-user industry, and geography. Currently, the position sensor market is in the growth stage. Position sensors are widely used in applications such as machine tools, material handling, test equipment, motion systems, as well as robotics. A few of the potential industries for position sensors include automotive, aerospace, consumer electronics, healthcare, manufacturing, and packaging.

In 2018, a few of the key players in the position sensor market were Honeywell International Inc. (US), SICK AG (Germany), ams AG (Austria), TE Connectivity Ltd. (Switzerland), and MTS Systems Corporation (US). Other players in the market include Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (US), Infineon Technologies AG (Germany), STMicroelectronics N.V. (Switzerland), Bourns, Inc. (US), and Allegro MicroSystems, LLC (US).
