Global Motion Control Sensors Market 2017-2021

About Motion Control Sensors

Motion control sensors are used to monitor the overall presence and movement of products in a process line and provide feedback to the controller, which then controls the movement of motors. Motion control devices are used in the process and discrete industries across various industrial applications, such as inspection, assembly lines, packaging, fabrication, material handling, and metal cutting. The major driver for the global motion control sensors market is the increasing need for industrial automation and process control, which are leveraged by using motion control devices.Technavio’s analysts forecast the global motion control sensors market to grow at a CAGR of 4.24% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Releases

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Motion Control Sensors Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global motion control sensors market: Honeywell International, ifm efector, OMRON, Schneider Electric, and SICK.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: KEYENCE, Turck, FUTEK Advanced Sensor Technology, AMETEK Sensors, Test & Calibration, igm, Makersan, and Soway.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is increased need for IIoT in motion control sensors. The sensor technology and motion control devices work together with the help of IIoT. This sensor information meshes in the cloud-based system, making it more flexible to use in the industrial premises. Wireless sensors can be used with a long range to send the information to motors over a longer range as the motors have installed with chipless sensors, which can take the input signals from these sensors.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is increasing need for advanced motion control systems. Motion control system is an essential part of automation that is helping industrial users to achieve precision in process control and ensure safety and efficiency in the production process. Motion control sensors are providing higher accuracy and require minimal human intervention in the process. It becomes very difficult to control motors without an appropriate motion control system. Motion control sensors are an integral part of the motion control system.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is high maintenance and replacement expenses. Motion control sensors such as speed and torque sensors are expensive, and they require an elevated level of maintenance. In industrial premises, often sensors get damaged and require timely replacement due to dust or obstruction of objects. The replacement of sensors increases the expenses, and manufacturers are finding alternatives for the product. Torque sensors are very expensive, and replacement for this sensor comes at a higher cost.
