Sensor is a device that monitors any specific physical quantity such as heat, light, motion, moisture, pressure, or similar entities, by transforming them into any other form which is mostly, electrical pulses. On the global scale, the demand for sensors is projected to grow during the study period owing to the growing trend of the internet of things (IoT), progress in consumer electronic products, technological advancement in sensors and its growing adoption in smartphones, and high demand in the automation industry. In addition, the expanding automotive sector and surge in demand for wearable devices create several new opportunities in the market. However, integrating the sensors in devices incurs extra value and reduces life of a device, that acts as a restraining factor for the market growth. Sensors can be classified on the basis of type and technology used to manufacture them.

In 2015, radar sensor dominated the market in by contributing more than 15% of overall sensor market by the type of sensor. This is largely due to the growth in IT & telecom industry and increase in the usage of remote sensing devices in civil engineering, defense & aerospace applications and forestry & agriculture worldwide. However, image sensor is predicted to witness the highest growth rate in the market, owing to its high adoption of biometrics, camcorders, digital cameras, video-conferencing applications, virtual keyboards, and optical mice.

Based on technology, in 2015, microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) generated the maximum market share and claimed more than 45% market share as they deliver real-world, motion-aware applications that improves the consumers experience of electronic devices. Moreover, MEMS find its utilization in the automotive and industrial applications, and have quickly become an important component in smartphones, gaming controllers, and tablets. However, owing to the technological superiority over others, nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS) are forecasted to have the highest growth in the market.
