Analysis of the development status and Prospect Forecast of the sensor industry in 2018

sensor technology is one of the rapidly developing high-tech technologies in the world. It is one of the three pillars of the information industry together with communication technology and computer technology. It is precisely because of the universal attention and investment in the development of all countries in the world that sensors have developed very rapidly. At present, there are more than 6500 units engaged in sensor development and production in the world. There are more than 1000 manufacturers engaged in sensor research and production in the United States, Europe and Russia, and more than 800 in Japan

in recent years, the global sensor market has maintained rapid growth, with a growth rate of more than 20% in 2009 and 2010; In 2011, affected by the global economic downturn, the growth rate of the sensor market decreased by 5% compared with that in 2010, and the market scale was US $82.8 billion. With the gradual recovery of the global market, the global sensor market reached US $95.2 billion in 2012 and about US $105.5 billion in 2013. With the continuous improvement of the economic environment, the market demand for sensors will continue to increase. In 2016, the market scale exceeded US $170billion, with a growth rate of 9.7%

at present, the global sensor market is mainly dominated by several leading companies in the United States, Japan and Germany, of which the United States, Japan and Germany account for nearly 70% of the market share

chart 2: regional distribution of global sensors

the major manufacturers in the global sensor market are Ge sensors, Emerson, Siemens, Bosch, Italy France semiconductor, Honeywell, abb, Yokogawa, Omron, Schneider Electric, e+h, etc. about 70% of the Chinese sensor market is occupied by these foreign-funded enterprises

in the global market of consumer inertial sensors (accelerometers + gyroscopes), STMicroelectronics is the market leader, accounting for about 40% of the market share, followed by Asahi microelectronics, Ying Meisheng and Bosch. These four inertial sensor manufacturers account for 75% of the market share

magnetometers (3-axis electronic compasses) and 6-axis electronic compasses (magnetometers + accelerometers) are widely used in plastic tensile testing machines because of their strong positioning function. Compared with those instruments with digital control boards that have been used for more than 10 years, they are cheaper for consumer products represented by intelligence. Among them, Asahi Kasei Microelectronics Co., Ltd. of Japan has been the leader for a long time, and its market share of electronic compass in the intelligent field is as high as 80%

the system architecture of IOT is generally composed of a sensing layer, a transmission layer and an application layer, of which the sensing layer is mainly composed of sensors, microprocessors and wireless communication transceivers. According to the McKinsey report, the economic benefits brought by IOT will be between us $2.7 trillion and US $6.2 trillion by 2025. Among them, the sensor, as the entrance of data collection and the "heart" of IOT, will usher in a huge space for development
