The Proximity Sensor market is a subset of the Optical Sensor market. Proximity Sensors are used to detect the presence of an object without physical contact. They are used in a variety of applications, such as industrial automation, robotics, and consumer electronics. Proximity Sensors are typically used to detect the presence of an object within a certain range, and can be used to detect motion, position, and speed.
Proximity Sensors are typically classified into two categories: active and passive. Active Proximity Sensors use an external source of energy, such as light or sound, to detect the presence of an object. Passive Proximity Sensors, on the other hand, rely on the object itself to generate a signal.
The Proximity Sensor market is highly competitive, with a number of companies offering a wide range of products. Some of the major players in the market include Honeywell, Omron, Panasonic, and SICK AG. Show Less Read more
