Level Sensor Market Trends



  • Increasing use of smart sensors is driving the market growth


The increasing use of smart sensors capable of two-way communication and self-diagnosis is projected to drive market growth. For instance, digital technology applications such as water conservation can be connected to microcontrollers to monitor water usage and capacity.


Digital level sensors are also used for gas flow measurement technology and can easily interface with computers. The increasing use of Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) non-contact type technology in residential, commercial, and industrial measurement applications is also anticipated to enhance the market demand. The growing demand for intelligent instruments equipped with microprocessors that provide information about the instrument's performance is expected to fuel market growth. The ability to offer higher accuracy and efficiency, along with easy installation and maintenance, is anticipated to drive industry growth. The increasing acceptance of smart multiphase sensors in the oil & gas and food & water industries has led to enhanced market CAGR growth.


The Technology is easily available in the market owing to the presence of many suppliers, the reduction in the size of the sensors, and the increasing usage of multipurpose level sensors in the automotive and industrial sectors. However, the adoption of thin-film Technology and increasing competition among market players is expected to hamper the market growth over the forecast period.


Additionally, favorable industry regulations aid in stimulating the growth of the level sensors market. For instance, regulations laid by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for power plants have increased sensor demand for monitoring gas leakage. Health and safety organizations also work toward implementing a hazard-free environment, ensuring workplace safety for employees. Compliance with regulations and standards in the food and beverage industry is the most demanding challenge for measuring instruments and sensors. The product design must comply with the industry guidelines issued by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and European Hygienic Engineering &Design Group (EHEDG), as well as meet the special Sterilization-in-Place and Clean-in-Place (SIP/CIP) process requirements for surface quality, materials used, process connections, and reliability. Programmable measuring instruments and specialized accessories further improve the customer experience. In the U.S., EPA regulates the wastewater discharge and treatment of wastewater under the Clean Water Act (CWA). These factors, Thus, drive the Level Sensor market revenue.


Level Sensor Market Segment Insights:


Level Sensor By Technology Insights


The Level Sensor Market segmentation, based on technology, the market is segmented into contact technology and non-contact technology. The market is experiencing a transition from contact type to non-contact technology owing to their flexibility, accuracy in measurement, and a lesser need for maintenance. Non-contact/continuous level sensors are electronic devices that generate the electromagnetic field for level measurement. These sensors operate faster and have greater application flexibility. Non-contact type technologies include photoelectric, capacitive, and ultrasonic sensors. Contact/point levels are electrochemical devices that are used to detect a change through physical contact with the target material/object. Magnetostrictive, vibratory probes, hydrostatic, and magnetic float are a few types of contact sensors. Continuous-level monitoring systems offer continuous level measurement of liquids and solids in silos, bins, and sumps. The solid flow sensor is based on microwave technology that senses solid materials. In contrast, point-level switches measure the level of solids, slurries, and liquids and are usually mounted on bins, hoppers, tanks, chutes, pipes, and vessels.


May 2021: Sick AG launched a new non-contact radar sensing technology for real-time monitoring of liquid and bulk solid levels in food & beverage applications. The Sick LBR SicWave is a bulk solid level sensor with a range of up to 120m and the Sick LFR SicWave is a fluid level sensor with a maximum range of 30m.
