The global ultrasonic sensors market held a market value of USD 4,041 million in 2021 and is projected to reach USD 8,958.9 million by the year 2030. The market is projected to list a CAGR of 9.2% during the forecast period.
The increasing use of ultrasonic sensors in healthcare applications is expected to drive the growth of the ultrasonic sensors market during the forecast period. Drone technology is constantly expanding its reach in different countries by optimising the range of commercial applications of drones such as aerial photography, shipping, transportation, and delivery, precision agriculture, and wildlife monitoring. Because of its superior imaging and security surveillance capabilities, ultrasonic sensors are widely used in industrial applications.
The poor detection capacity of ultrasonic sensors in long-range detection applications is one of the key factors restricting their use. It can quickly recognise items within its measured range, but it cannot distinguish between diverse sizes and forms. Multiple sensors in sensing devices can help with this. Furthermore, because these sensors are so sensitive, they may identify spurious signals generated by natural airwaves. As a result, the targeted object is falsely detected, further impeding industry expansion during the anticipated timeline.
Growing ultrasonic sensor use in the healthcare industry
The ultrasonic sensor market is expanding due to its increasing use in medical point-of-care devices such as ultrasound machines and blood glucose metres. These sensors are extensively used in medical imaging instruments such as radiography and ultrasonography. The device provides real-time views of internal body structures such as tendons, bones, ligaments, and internal organs. In addition, to meet expanding market demand, some regional manufacturers are working on incorporating ultrasonic sensors into their medical products.
Rising adoption of surveillance drones
The growing popularity of surveillance drones and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) in the region is raising the value of the sector. According to a news release made by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in April 2021, there were 1.1 million operational unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and drones in the United States. Commercial UAVs made up 367,848 of the active UAVs and drones, while recreational drones made up 502,105. These UAVs are equipped with ultrasonic sensors and can be used for surveillance, distance measuring, inspection, mapping, and transporting. The country's booming e-commerce sector will drive acceptance of UAVs in delivery services, further expanding industry income.
