Factory Automation Sensor Market Overview


The Global Factory Automation Sensor Market is estimated to reach USD 27.3 Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 6.90% during the forecast period of 2022–2030. Sensors are devices that are used to detect and assess changes in physical, electrical, or other quantities, as well as to record the information. Sensors for factory automation play an important part in factory automation because they allow workers, engineers, or individuals to collect information about the machines' functioning and performance on their systems. An industrial sensor is a device that detects events or changes in the environment and then outputs the appropriate information. Factory automation and Industry 4.0 rely heavily on these sensors. From linear or angular positioning, tilt sensing, leveling, and shock or fall detection, motion sensors, environmental sensors, and vibration sensors are used to monitor the status of equipment.


They detect physical input such as light, heat, motion, wetness, pressure, or any other entity and respond by displaying the information or transmitting it in computer form for further processing. These sensors enable users to detect changes in pressure, temperature, and flow, among other characteristics, allowing them to take the necessary actions to maintain the systems' operation and improve their performance by maintaining them regularly. The Factory Automation Sensor Market Share and Factory Automation Sensor Market Size are expected to rise.


COVID-19 Analysis


The COVID-19 epidemic has harmed the expansion of several businesses, including manufacturing, oil and gas, and many more. The oil and gas industry is a key end-use business for Factory Automation Sensor Industry. Many ongoing or new projects across the oil and gas value chain will likely experience significant problems in terms of project execution, planning, and risk management as a result of COVID-19. Due to the pandemic, more than 2000 EPC oil and gas projects in various categories, including LNG, petrochemicals, and oil storage and refineries, have been halted or postponed. A 25% drop in oil prices, according to energy research firm Rystad Energy, may result in a USD 30 billion loss in oil and gas investments globally. Apart from oil and gas and automobiles, several other businesses around the world, including electricity generation and mining, have halted Factory Automation Sensor Market Demand in practically all countries as a result of the pandemic changing the Factory Automation Sensor Market Outlook. This is projected to reduce industrial sensor demand and have a major influence on Factory Automation Sensor Market Revenue throughout the forecast period.


Market Dynamics



  • Drivers


The primary goal of using sensors in factory automation is to eliminate manual labor, enhance work process efficiency, increase productivity, execute many operations quickly, and reduce downtime. Furthermore, factory automation allows firms to optimize their manufacturing operations while also allowing them to create profit, increasing the growth of the Factory Automation Sensor Market. Vision sensors, pressure sensors, temperature sensors, and vibration sensors are among the different types of sensors utilized in factory automation. The surge in automation and rising demand for smart factories are two reasons that are propelling the industry forward. The industrial automation sensors market is being driven by manufacturers' shifting preferences toward linked equipment. In most industries, including automotive and healthcare, the expanding use of IIoT is likely to boost demand for sensors and increase Factory Automation Sensor Market Share. Customers can benefit from solutions that integrate sensor technology with computational power to increase productivity.



  • Restraints


In most industries, including automotive and healthcare, the expanding use of IIoT is predicted to drive up Factory Automation Sensor Industry and Factory Automation Sensor Market. Customers benefit from greater productivity solutions that integrate sensor technologies and computational power. Most industries are still using ten-year-old machinery that isn't equipped with sensors today. This is due to the lack of fast answers as well as the differences in each industry's requirements. It also necessitates a keen understanding of each machine's activities and the metrics to be followed, as well as trial and error to find the correct sensor and place it, and a strategy for collecting, filtering, and analyzing the obtained data. Industries feel that this process is difficult and expensive. Sensors, they say, make the device more sophisticated, thus restraining the Factory Automation Sensor Market Demand and Factory Automation Sensor Market Revenue.



  • Technology Analysis


Industrial sensors can aid in process improvement and provide unrivaled asset protection. Sensing technology and its varied applications are always changing to keep up with technological breakthroughs and commercial needs. Sensors can detect a wide range of real-world qualities, including distance, heat, and pressure. In addition, industrial sensors are utilized to accurately and consistently detect physical, chemical, and biological quantities. Their dependability has led to broad adoption and application in a wide range of industries, including healthcare, infrastructure, and manufacturing.
