The new 254 page IDTechEx report, "Sensors 2021-2041" uniquely analyses the whole subject in the light of such seismic changes as the COVID-19 virus, automotive entering a perfect storm of change, robot farming and mining and the diabetes epidemic. The emphasis is on commercial opportunities.
Over 100 companies are covered. See new patent trend graphs for over 80 sensor families. Top assignees are ranked for each with what that tells us. The 13 most important sensor families for the future get particularly detailed technical and business analysis based on many interviews and investigations. Data are included from newly-researched IDTechEx drill down reports on key aspects including automotive RADAR, automotive LIDAR, bioelectronics, diabetes and skin patch electronics, water sensors, printed and flexible sensors.
The report has a thorough executive summary and conclusions for those with limited time. New infograms present facts-based analysis by PhD level, multi-lingual analysts based on 20 years of research. What are the top 16 sensor-patenting organisations and which of 13 key sensor sectors do each dominate? Which are strongly addressing three important sensor types identified by IDTechEx for the future?
See 14 key conclusions about the global sensor business. Compare global value-market forecasts 2021-2041 for nine sensor-rich industries with identified market drivers. See backup forecasts including important new IDTechEx figures for post-COVID electric and conventional car sales to 2040. An infogram reveals how market sizes compare and overlap. An example is the market for wearable technology overall and its part for medical purposes down to biosensors within that. Only IDTechEx gives you the big picture.
In this opening chapter, sensors are discussed by industry, operating principle, parameter measured. Understand which are growing fastest, filing the most patents, operate where. 16 most-patented sensor families by parameter are compared, listing their top assignees. From interviews, data gathering and other sources, the level of interest and the 10 year market forecasts are given by key sector. Wired vs wireless sensor interest is presented.
The report introduction then illustrates a host of sensor examples by industry, Internet of Things, body area networks, aircraft needs changing, autonomous vehicles and so on. The trend to printing and wearable are discussed plus an explanation of sensor fusion and newly-monitored interest levels in sensors, including China.
Chapter three is an analysis by business sector: patents, technology, players and trends. The products, needs and thrust of nine key industries identified are here. They are aerospace, agricultural, automotive, consumer, energy, environmental, industrial (including manufacturing, logistics, Internet of Things), medical and wellness, mining.
Chapter four does that for 25 sensor operating principles with extended analysis of the most important ones. For example, here is explanation of the new biosensors, lab-on-a-chip, piezotronics and thermoelectric sensing and where they are headed and particular attention on the newly-important vehicle RADAR and LIDAR sensor technologies.
Finally, chapter five, the longest at 86 detailed pages, is a thorough sensor analysis by parameter measured: patents, technology, participants and trends. No less than 54 sensor families are examined, from emerging continuous glucose monitoring with massive patenting to gas, nerve, new structural health monitoring and toxigen sensing. Who is behind massive new patenting of temperature sensors and why? Have the new terahertz radiation sensors got a future? The approach is balanced, recognising, for example that a solar farm replacing deep oil wells, their pipelines and their power stations all together means fewer sensors and our interviews revealing COVID-19 has de-prioritised car autonomy. Huge market-growth prospects and identified gaps in the sensor market are presented alongside the discovered negatives.
