Semiconductor and Electronics Position Sensor Market

The position sensor market is expected to grow at a CAGR 8.19% rate during the forecast year. Key factors driving the growth of this market include the increasing focus of manufacturers on accurate measurements and detailed inspection, rising adoption of position sensors in the aviation & aerospace industry, and growing demand for position sensors to deploy them in modern automobiles.Rotary position sensors accounted for larger share, which can be attributed to their wide adoption in various applications or industries, such as automotive, manufacturing, healthcare, packing, and consumer electronics. A rotary position sensor converts the rotary mechanical position into electric signals. They are also known as angular position sensors.


Non-contact type position sensors held larger market share that can be attributed to their increased utilization in the field of precision measurement, longer lifespan, ease of use, reliable measurements, resistance to contamination, and high accuracy.

Digital output captured larger share owing to increasing popularity of digital sensors as discrete signals are less susceptible to potential interference and result in higher quality and more reliable measurement values and output, thereby fulfilling the requirements of complex systems.


Machine tools application held larger share owing to increasing use of position sensors in machine tools, which include assembly and welding robots, automated guided vehicles, bending presses, laser cutting machines, coil storage and handling solutions, and sheet metal processing equipment, to make the entire production process safe, fast, and transparent.


APAC is expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period. Continuous demand for cost-effective and highly efficient position sensors from electronics, automotive, manufacturing, medical and healthcare, and packaging industries is expected to drive the growth of the position sensor market in APAC in the coming years. Increasing population, rising R&D investments, and growing manufacturing and electronics sectors in the region are expected to boost the demand for position sensors in APAC.


Key market players include Honeywell (US), SICK AG (Germany), ams AG (Austria), TE Connectivity (Switzerland), MTS Systems (US), Vishay (US), Infineon Technologies (Germany), STMicroelectronics (Switzerland), Bourns (US), and Allegro MicroSystems (US)
