Global Distance Measurement Market Estimated to Reach $2.57bn by 2018

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Distance Measurement Sensors Market (2014 - 2020) - By Sensing Technology (Laser Diodes, IR LEDs, Ultrasonic, Capacitive, Inductive, Photoelectric, Image & Draw Wire); By Measurement Type; By Applications (Industrial Automation, Safety Systems" report to their offering.

The market is estimated to reach $2.57bn by 2018 and become a $2.7bn industry by 2020

The demand for Distance Measurement Sensor services is growing at a steady pace across the globe. The Ultrasonic distance measurement sensors produce frequencies equal to 20,000 cycles per second making them very accurate in sensing even the smaller objects and also at relatively low price. So these sensors are very widely used in this industry along with laser diodes giving them the edge and making them the largest product segment in this market.

Distance measurement sensors are used in varying applications like packaging, automation, robotics, safety systems and consumer electronics for varying purposes. Most companies manufacture a mixture of distance measurement sensors, proximity and displacement sensors and customize them based on the needs of the end consumer.

This report segments the distance sensors market exclusively by the sensing technologies user in distance measurement, the end user applications and by the measurement technique used in the sensors. Through-beam, retro-reflective and time of flight are some of the commonly used measurement techniques.

This report on the Global Distance Measurement Sensor Market identifies many such insights and M&A opportunities, besides providing a detailed analysis of the Distance Measurement Sensor services and equipment market.

Distance measuring sensors are primarily in the industrial sector for automation purposes and for varied other jobs. The global market report has been studied and segmented into different segments based on the underlying sensing technology type used and also the end user applications.
