Rotary angle sensors change physical phenomenon into a quantity measurable by data acquisition system, hence it is an key part of any measurement and automation application. The rotation that is to be measured is connected to the motion of a slider that causes changes in the resistance that the sensor circuit converts in output voltage. Moreover, the rotary angle sensors are much more durable since they have high rotational life characteristics. The market for rotary angle sensors is expected to contribute the highest growth rate during the period of forecast. These sensors measure the rotational or angular movement of an object. Rotary angle sensors measure the rotational or angular movement of an object. Rotary angle sensors is expected to lead the global position sensors market with the fuelling factors such as expanded use of position sensors in a vehicle, increasing trend of industrial automation and many more.
The rotary angle sensors are primarily driven by the increasing industrial automation. The industrial automation is implemented in different industries like automotive, aerospace, electronics, healthcare and packaging which are fuelling the demand of rotary angle sensors market. Increasing use of rotary angle sensors in automobiles sectors is also fuelling the demand of rotary angle sensors market globally. The sensor is used in providing electrical outputs relative to shaft rotation so as to measure the angles precisely. In automotive industries these sensor are used in gear position, steering wheel position, throttle position and pedal position. Another major driver of this market is the adoption of rotary angle sensor in aerospace industries. In aerospace industries these sensors are used for automation in the aerospace industries.
One of the restraining factors in the rotary angle sensors market is the lack of product differentiation. As a number of key players offer similar technological products, there are numerous options for the buyers to buy from. Thus creating pricing pressure that helps to compete with large manufacturers for high volume of these products.
Industrial robotic applications are expected to be one of the major opportunities in the rotary angle sensors market. Automations in different sector will create demand for robotics which in terms will create demand for rotary angle sensors. Moreover, electronics sector is also one of the important sectors where opportunities are expected during the forecast period.
