Inclinometers Market synopsis


The Inclinometers are angular measuring devices that are used to measure the tilt, angles of the slope, or inclination of the object. They are commonly known as level sensors, tilt sensors, clinometers, slope tilt meters under various applications. The primary driver of the Inclinometers market is the intensive utilization of MEMS systems in consumer electronics. Since the demand for consumer electronics has been increasing in recent years, the utilization of the clinometers in the MEMS for gaming and GPS applications is also increasing rapidly. These systems are capable of understanding the gesture such as scrolling, tapping, tilting, and rotate which enhances the user experience in gaming. The inclinometers market value is expected to surpass over USD 3.6 billion by the year 2023 while registering a CAGR of 2.1%.


 


Moreover, the robust structure and the tough material used are highly beneficial for the applications such as off-shore oil rigs, industrial vehicles, marine applications, aerospace applications which include the orientation of the aircraft refers to the gravity, tip-over protection on cranes and dump trucks, and so on. Additionally, the manufacturers are focusing on features such as higher noise tolerances, to ensure distortion less performance due to the noise and higher sensitivity to react even to the occurrence of small changes. Such factors are further propelling the overall growth of the Inclinometers market.


 


COVID 19 Analysis:


 


The oil and gas market was continuously facing supply chain disruptions and demand drop throughout the pandemic, however as the oil and gas market entails the crucial role of producing energy, and other factors are supporting the growth of the oil and gas market. Therefore the declining demand in the oil and gas market has decreased the utilization of the inclinometers during the pandemic.


 


On the other hand, the manufacturing processes in consumer electronics in several countries were reduced to combat the crisis. Such factors have also reduced the demand for the inclinometers in those sectors. Additionally, the economic condition of the countries was also influencing the market negatively. 


 


Market Dynamics:


 


Market Drivers:


 


The potential benefits of the inclinometers such as accuracy in measuring the tilt degree, and inclination, which are especially deployed in the motion control systems and other crucial applications such as marine systems, oil drilling, and so on are propelling the overall growth of the inclinometers industry.


 


Increasing adoption of smart devices across the globe and enhanced user experience due to the increasing adoption of the inclinometers in the MEMS systems and motion sensors are impacting the Inclinometers industry growth.

This factor is expected to hinder the overall growth of the inclinometers industry.


 


The poor reliability records of the inclinometers and generating false readings are also influencing the inclinometers market negatively. 


 


Market Challenges:


 


Some of the inclinometers utilize mercury which is hazardous to be used in certain conditions and doesn’t comply the government regulations. On the other hand, the requirement of gravity for efficient operation also present challenges in the Inclinometers market growth. The inclinometers that are operated with the ball rolling require gravitational force to measure the key parameters and are not suitable for zero-gravity conditions such as space.


 


The accuracy and the reliability under tough environmental conditions are considered as the major challenges for the overall growth of the inclinometers industry.


 


Cumulative Growth Analysis:


 


The demand for miniaturization and smart technology in recent times has introduced advanced technologies in the inclinometers market, which produced the package with 9 axis sensors by significantly reducing the size. Such factors have augmented smart wearable devices as well. However, the increasing number of smart factories in developing countries and the smart devices in such manufacturing sectors have impacted the growth of the inclinometers industry, owing to the factors such as increasing the potential of the plant at reduced processing time. The inclinometers market value is expected to surpass over USD 3.6 billion by the year 2023 while registering a CAGR of 2.1% as the advancement in the market is increasing continuously. 


 


Value Chain Analysis:


 


Inclinometers are intensively utilized in the sectors such as industrial sectors, construction, and electronic manufacturing industries which include crucial applications such as measuring angles of the slopes, concerning the gravitational force.
