Ultrasonic Sensors Market size to surpass $12 Bn by 2032

  • Published Date: April 5, 2023

Ultrasonic Sensors Market size is projected to reach over USD 12 billion by 2032, according to a recent research report announced by Global Market Insights Inc.

Increasing penetration of piezo technology in healthcare is expected to have a positive impact on the ultrasonic sensor industry outlook. Ultrasonic piezo sensors are used in various medical applications including pharmaceutical devices, spirometry, air bubble detection & flow measurement in infusion systems, and patient monitoring. These devices are compact and robust with low energy and offer exceptional reliability. Moreover, the rising prevalence of chronic diseases has accelerated the use of ultrasonic sensors to image internal organs such as breasts, heart, eyes, and vascular system.

Increasing production of through-beam sensors to drive market expansion

Ultrasonic sensors market valuation from through-beam sensors is estimated to record USD 3 billion by the end of 2032. The surging demand for through-beam sensors can be attributed to the dynamic growth in manufacturing activities. For instance, as per the Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation (MOSPI), India’s manufacturing production increased by more than 2.5% in December 2022 as compared to the same month last year. Furthermore, through-beam sensors are primarily used to detect the edges of objects and effectively monitor passages, and count parts, hence adding positive impetus to the industry growth.

Rising need for remote monitoring and detection to propel adoption of closed-type ultrasonic sensors

In terms of revenue, the ultrasonic sensors market share from closed-type ultrasonic sensors surpassed USD 2 billion in 2022. Closed-type ultrasonic sensors are gaining substantial traction owing to their durability and waterproof nature. These obstacle sensors allow operators to remotely locate the sensing element across any control circuit. The growing demand for liquid meters and vehicle rear detection is also expected to propel the use of closed-type ultrasonic sensors. Moreover, the growing emphasis on waterproof ultrasonic sensors as an alternative to conventional radar systems will positively influence the industry outlook.
