Magnetic Sensor Market

Magnetic Sensor Market: Automotive is Projected to be the Most Attractive Application Segment During the Forecast Period - Global Industry Analysis 2013 - 2017 and Opportunity Assessment 2018 - 2028


A magnetic sensor is a small-scale micro electrochemical systems (MEMS) device for detecting and measuring fields. This sensor acts as a transducer which varies its output voltage in reaction to a magnetic field. These type of sensors are used for proximity switching, speed detection, positioning and current sensing applications.

Moreover, these sensors also detects changes and disturbances in a magnetic field like flux, strength and direction. This report includes magnetic sensors which are based on Hall Effect, AMR (Anisotropic Magneto-Resistive), GMR (Giant Magneto-Resistance), and TMR (Tunnel Magneto-Resistance) technologies.

The global magnetic sensor market is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 4.8% during the forecast period. The global magnetic sensor market was valued at US$ 1,906.1 Mn in 2018 and is anticipated to increase significantly to reach US$ 3,053.5 Mn by 2028, due to increase in demand of magnetic sensors for multiple applications in automotive and IoT.

Global magnetic sensor market is categorize by technology, by application and by region. By technology, the market is segmented as Hall Effect, AMR (Anisotropic Magneto-Resistive), GMR (Giant Magneto-Resistance), and TMR (Tunnel Magneto-Resistance).
