Proximity sensor refers to all sensors which perform non-contact detection and which detect objects without physically contacting them. Proximity sensors convert information on the movement or presence of an object into an electrical signal. These sensors are used to detect any object or a target without the need for any physical contact. These sensors are used in parking lots, mobile phones, conveyor systems and many other industrial applications.
Increasing adoption of the proximity sensors for automobile industry is acting as a driving factor for the growth of the proximity sensor market. Proximity sensor has certain limitation in the sensing capabilities which restricts the adoption of sensors and acts as a restraining factor for the growth of the proximity sensor market. Increasing use of automation across various industries such as manufacturing, power and others were also increasing the need to adopt proximity sensors and creating a window of opportunity for the growth of the proximity sensor market. Designing miniaturized sensors without compromising on quality acts as a challenge for the proximity sensor market growth.
