Proximity Sensor Market Trends       

Rising Demand for Proximity Sensors in Consumer Products: In today’s smart and interconnected world, the number of consumer electronic devices, such as smartphones, laptops, and smart home devices, is increasing at a predominating rate. Sensing components are been increasingly used in smartphones to improve overall functional efficiency and convenience.

Furthermore, the use of position detection proximity sensors that detect the position of objects is generating rapid demand for proximity sensors in the consumer electronics industry. Therefore, high growth of the consumer electronics industry in business regions such as North America and China plays an important role in the growth of the global proximity sensor market.

Increasing Demand for Proximity Detection Due to Rapid Urbanization: Today’s modern facilities are becoming more complex and diverse with urban expansion and population growth. Sensor information data will help manage different urban facilities and also help respond effectively to emergencies and accidents, through information sharing. Intelligent urban vehicles will need multiple sensors, looking at different sorts of phenomena. These different types of proximity sensors constantly monitor the position and control of the vehicle, which increases their demand in urban infrastructures, thereby propelling the growth of the proximity sensor market.

Technological Developments in Proximity Sensors: In the era of technology development, new innovative proximity sensor - Time of Flight (ToF) sensors, can protect health in many ways, while maintaining social distancing with all kinds of products. For instance, in July 2020, STMicroelectronics introduced high-performance proximity and ranging sensors, based on FlightSense Time of Flight technology. These Time of Flight (ToF) sensors help enable 3D sensing capabilities for all kinds of products that we use every day.
