Global Occupancy Sensor Market 2016-2020

About Occupancy Sensor Market

The market is driven by the increased adoption of PIR sensors and ultrasonic sensors in the residential and commercial sector. Erosion in the prices of PIR sensors has led to their increased adoption in automotive production, video surveillance, military applications, and medical use.

The use of occupancy sensors in private offices, classrooms, closets, hallways, corridors, rest rooms, large storage areas, and other enclosed spaces in commercial and residential establishments is driving the global market. Occupancy sensors offer reliable performance at a lower cost. They also offer significant energy savings in terms of reduced power consumption and enhanced performance delivery. The proliferation of heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems has further enhanced the need for efficient and accurate occupancy sensors.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global occupancy sensor market to grow at a CAGR of 11.99% during the period 2016-2020.
