Market Synopsis

The Global Factory Automation Sensor Market is estimated to reach USD 18.13 Billion by 2025, registering a CAGR of 6.6% during the forecast period of 2019–2025.

Sensors are the devices that are used to identify and analyze the progressions associated with the physical, electrical, or other quantities and record the data from them. The sensors factory automation plays a vital role in factory automation as these allow the works, engineers, or an individual to gather the information associated with the functionality of the machines and their performance on their systems. These sensors allow the user to identify the changes in the pressure, temperature, and flow, among other parameters, allowing the users to take appropriate steps to maintain the functionality of the systems and enhance their performance by maintaining the systems at a regular interval.

The main purpose of using sensors in factory automation is to reduce manual work, increase the efficiency of the work process, improve productivity, perform various tasks rapidly, and reduce downtime. Additionally, factory automation allows the manufacturers to streamline their factory processes and allows the manufacturers to generate profit. There are various types of sensors, such as vision sensors, pressure sensors, temperature sensors, and vibration sensors, that are used for factory automation. The rise in automation and increasing demand for smart factories are considered as some of the factors which are fueling the growth of the market.
