Global and China Sensor Industry Report, 2013-2016 of Sino Market Insight forecasts that in 2016 Chinese sensor output will reach 3.16 billion.
Throughout Chinese sensor market, there can be divided into two stages: (1) Prior to 2009, sensor in China driven by automotive and industrial electronics witnessed rapid development, but affected by the financial crisis, the output touched bottom in 2009. (2) In 2009-2012, Chinese sensor market also entered a slow recovery track, with output up to 1.99 billion in 2012.
Chinese sensor manufacturers are mainly concentrated in the Yangtze River Delta region, also accompanied by a regional layout formation of Beijing, Shanghai, Nanjing, Shenzhen, Shenyang, Xi’an and other central cities, of which, the Shanghai, Wuxi and Nanjing-cored Yangtze River Delta region has been gradually equipped with thermosensitive, magnetic-sensing, image, weighing, photoelectric, temperature, gas-sensitive and other sensor production systems and associated industries.,
Seen from the development trend, China’s private and joint-ventured sensor products hold the low- and medium-end market, while high-end products are primarily occupied by foreign manufacturers, e.g. Rosemount and Honeywell in terms of pressure sensor; Mettler and HBM in weighing sensor; P+F, Turck and Omron in photoelectric sensor; Freescale, Aalegra and Dallars in chip-level sensor; Rumata and Raytek in infrared sensor; Delphi in automotive sensor, and so forth. As of 2012, 80% of the world’s leading sensor manufacturers have already accessed into Chinese market.
Consisting of six chapters and 64 charts, this report not only analyzes the global sensor market size and competition, Chinese sensor market size and competition, global and Chinese optical market size, global and Chinese non-optical sensor market size and competition, sensor applications (industrial, automotive, medical and other fields), but also introduces 16 domestic and foreign sensor companies such as STMicroelectronics, Knowles, Asahi Kasei Microsystems, InvenSense, Texas Instruments, Robert Bosch and Honeywell.
