Motion Sensors Market: Emergence of Economic, Compact and Efficient MEMS Technology Is Driving the Demand for Motion Sensors

Market Overview

Motion sensing is an emerging technology which is transforming the interaction of machines with humans. Motion sensors works on a wide variety of principles and are used in various variety of applications. Motion sensors are widely used in security systems. Commonly the motion sensors are used in windows of a building or in the exterior doorways for securing or monitoring the area around building. Some of the motion sensors works based on sound, vibration, infrared radiation and some even operate in a similar way as military radar scanner.

Motion sensors are also used in cameras, where these sensors combines video recorders or cameras with advanced signal processing. Some recordable motion sensors start recording when they sense motion. As cameras controlled with motion sensors capture only the important stuff and can save enough memory storage by not covering hundreds of hours of useless footage. Motion sensors coupled with security cameras, automatics lighting systems and programmed with advanced software helps to reduce malicious activities even in dark conditions.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic Outbreak on Motion Sensors Market

In a recent statement made by Sony corporation electronics segment is facing problems with production and supply chain issues. As a result manufacturing pants are closing operation in China and Malaysia as well as there is unstable flow of resources from supplies in Asia. Thus the growth of electronics segment has dropped in the last quarter, that is Q1, 2020 due to COVID-19 outbreak. In addition the growth rate of motion controls market in US has dropped roughly from 6% in 2018 to 3% in 2019. Also five major brands in this market were down by 40% in February 2020 as compared to January 2020.

As per the report of National Bureau of Statistics, production of smart phones, which is a major user of motion sensors had declined by almost 35% in Q1, 2020 as compared to Q1, 2019. However, if the pandemic situation recover then the market will gain momentum back by Q3, 2020.

Motion Sensors Market: Drivers and Restraints

Increasing Adoption of Motion Sensors in Electronic Gadgets Is a Major Factor Driving Growth of the Market

Application of motion sensors in electronic gadgets such as tablets, smart phones, and smart watches is rising significantly. Motion sensors are widely used in these devices for different applications such as heart rate monitor in smart wearable device, controlling the orientation of the screen on a smartphone and others. In addition, motion-controlled video games also employ these sensors to detect activities. There is a rise in demand for wearable devices and smart phones from young generation millennials, supporting the growth of electronics industry, which is further fueling the growth of the motion sensors market.

Traditionally used piezo resistive, piezoelectric and mechanical sensors had limited applications due to their larger size and bulkiness. But the introduction of new MEMS sensing technology has drastically reduced the weight and size of the sensors. The compact size of these sensors has enabled many new applications which is driving the growth of the market. Moreover, MEMS based gyroscopes and accelerometers, consumes low power and offers higher efficiency in terms of power usage. This factor is propelling the growth of motion sensors market.
