Covid-19 scenario-

  • The outbreak of the pandemic led to closure of most business and manufacturing units across the globe. It also gave way to a steep decline in demand for sensors from several industry verticals such as consumer electronics, automotive, and IT & telecom.
  • Nevertheless, several government bodies have initiated vaccination drives, and with this drift on board, the market is expected to recoup soon.

The radar sensor segment to retain its dominance by 2027-

Based on type, the radar sensor segment contributed to nearly one-fifth of the global sensor market share in 2019, and is expected to lead the trail by 2027. Increase in adoption of radar sensors for various applications and their safety & assistance features fuel the segment growth. The image sensor segment, on the other hand, would register the fastest CAGR of 10.6% throughout the forecast period. This is because these sensors are extensively used in indusrial quality control applications to improve product yield and spot defective units on the production line.

The MEMS segment to rule the roost-

Based on technology, the MEMS segment accounted for more than two-fifths of the global sensor market revenue in 2019, and is anticipated to dominate by the end of 2027. Increase in implementation of sensors made with MEMS technology in consumer electronic devices drives the growth of the segment. Simultaneously, the CMOS segment would manifest the fastest CAGR of 11.8% during the forecast period. Growing industrialization has considerably increased the need of cameras for security and surveillance, most of which use CMOS image sensors owing to its easy availability and less price. This factor has driven the segment growth.
