IV. COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

The advent of micro-technology has revolutionized the electronics industry so much so that miniaturization has now become a cue word across the globe. Further, the role played by micro-technology is enormous and sensors, as an offshoot of this know-how, are used in most of the industrial electronic applications. Level sensor industry, following the trends in electronics industry, is also inclined towards compactness and micro designs. Non-contact sensors gave new dimension to the industry, as they do not interact and interfere with the matter to be sensed. With level sensors market moving towards non-contact or electronic type of measurement from contact or mechanical type of measurements, non-contact level sensor is becoming a predominant technology. Most of the industries are focusing on technologies such as Radar and Ultrasonic for accurate, reliable and cost effective means for level measurement.

Europe and the US represent the largest level sensor markets worldwide. However, fastest growth is likely to emanate from Asia-Pacific market. Buoyed by expanding markets such as China and India, Asia-Pacific level sensor market is projected to post a healthy growth over the analysis period.

Ultrasonic level sensors market represents the largest segment, while radar-microwave sensors market represents the fastest growing product segment.

Dominant global forces profiled in the report include Ametek, Badger Meter, Cameron, Eaton Corp, GE Industrial Sensing, Gems Sensors & Controls, Hella KGaA Hueck & Co, Honeywell Sensing and Control, K-TEK Corporation, Kobold Messring, Krohne Messtechnik, Measurement Specialties, Omron Electronics, LLC, Robert Bosch GmbH, Rosemount, Siemens Milltronics Process Instruments, SSI Technologies, Stoneridge, TURCK, and Yamatake Corp, among several others.
