Magnetic Sensor Sector Segmentation

End-user (Automotive, Consumer Electronics, Industrial, Aerospace & Defense, Healthcare, Energy & Power) 

The global magnetic sensor market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by end use into automotive, consumer electronics, industrial, aerospace & defense, healthcare, and energy & power. Out of the six end users of magnetic sensor, the energy & power segment is estimated to gain the largest market share of about ~38% in the year 2035. In oil fields, nuclear and other power plants, as well as solar and wind energy applications, magnetic sensors monitor the position or speed of moving components. The sensors can be utilized for energy and water saving via intelligent, open/close door detection, fluid levels, and contactless sensing. For instance, global demand is expected to exceed approximately 660 quadrillions Btu in 2050, representing around a 15% increase over 2021, reflecting a larger population and greater income. Moreover, strong middle-class expansion in developing countries boosts energy demand by approximately 35%.

Technology {Hall Effect, Anisotropic Magento Resistance (AMR)

The global magnetic sensor market is also segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by technology into hall effect, anisotropic magento resistance (AMR), and giant magneto resistance (GMR). Amongst these three segments, the hall effect segment is expected to garner a significant share in the year 2035. The growth of the segment is expected on the account of their reasonable price, ease of integration, and lack of interference from complex biomedical samples. Hall effect sensors are used to monitor mechanical system variables such as proximity, speed, and displacement. It is one of the most common speed-sensing technology. They are quite dependable. Provide electrical angles and outputs that can be pre-programmed and provide high-speed operation. Hall Effect sensors do not wear out; thus they have an extended shelf life and, in the case of two-part technology, a virtually endless life. They are quite dependable.
