Ultrasonic sensor is an electronic instrument, which measures the distance to an object via ultrasonic sound waves. It works on high-frequency sound waves, which reflect from an object to generate dissimilar echo patterns. It uses transducer to send & receive ultrasonic signals that relay back data about an object’s proximity. It is widely used in many applications such as presence detection, stacking height control, robotic sensing, liquid level control, loop control, full detection, through-beam detection for high-speed counting, irregular parts detection for hoppers and feeder bowls, 45° deflection, thread or wire break detection, and contouring using ultrasonic systems.
According to a new report published by Allied Market Research, titled, “Ultrasonic Sensor Market by Product Type, Application, and End User: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2020–2028,” the global ultrasonic sensor market size was valued at $4.90 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $10.43 billion by 2028, registering a CAGR of 11.10%. The Asia-Pacific region is expected to be the leading contributor to the global market growth during the forecast period, followed by North America and Europe.
The global ultrasonic sensor market size is anticipated to witness significant growth during the forecast period. Factors, such as growing use of ultrasonic sensors for object detection, pallet detection, and distance measurement across numerous industries, drive the growth of the ultrasonic sensors market. It is also widely used in the food & beverages industry for various purposes such as material handling, processing, and hygiene detection. However, limitation of ultrasonic sensors, such as limited detection range, is a major restraint to the global ultrasonic sensors market. In addition, growing demand from the healthcare sector for numerous applications, such as echocardiograms and echo graphs, is expected to create opportunities for the ultrasonic sensor industry.
