Magnetic sensors form the building blocks of electronic control systems in commercial as well as passenger vehicles. These systems ensure increased safety and enhance driver convenience, as a result of which, their adoption has witnessed a surge. Such advanced sensing elements guarantee high reliability and efficiency in terms of economics and performance.

High penetration of sophisticated, feature-rich smartphones and tablets has necessitated the need for advanced sensing components, a trend that is expected to favorably impact the market over the next few years. Magnetic sensors have also been extensively used in the field of Non-destructive Testing (NDT) and medical R&D.

The average selling prices (ASP) of magnetic sensors are declining steadily, which is attributed to intense competition in the market. As a result, manufacturers are forced to shrink their margins in order to secure long-term deals with companies across several end-markets. While such a reduction in ASPs is anticipated to continue, growing application ranges of magnetic sensors are expected to aid the market over the next few years.


Magnetic Sensor Market Segmentation

Based on the Application Insights, the market is segmented into automotive, consumer electronics, industrial and others

  • The automotive sector is expected to emerge as the highest demand generating segment over the forecast period. Approximately 1.5 million magnetic sensors were utilized in various automotive applications in 2018. The segment also accounted for the dominant revenue share in the magnetic sensor market that year. Key regulatory bodies all over the world are shaping the growth of the segment by stressing on the adoption of electric and hybrid cars in order to address growing concerns regarding environment pollution.
  • Increased incorporation of magnetic sensors in consumer electronics is expected to positively impact market growth. These sensors form integral parts of devices such as tablets, smartphones, scanners, printers, laptops, flat panels, and cameras. They are also embedded in gaming controllers and other smart products.
