An industrial sensor is a device that detects events or changes in the environment and then outputs relevant data. Factory automation and Industry 4.0 rely heavily on these sensors. Motion sensors, environmental sensors, and vibration sensors are used to monitor the status of equipment ranging from linear or angular positioning, tilt sensing, levelling, and shock or fall detection. They detect physical input such as light, heat, motion, wetness, pressure, or any other entity and respond by displaying or transmitting the information to a computer for further processing. These sensors enable users to detect changes in pressure, temperature, and flow, among other characteristics, allowing them to take the necessary actions to keep the systems running and improve their performance by performing regular maintenance. The Factory Automation Sensor Market Share and Factory Automation Sensor Market Size are expected to grow in the coming years.

The COVID-19 epidemic has hampered the growth of several industries, including manufacturing, oil and gas, and many others. Factory Automation Sensor Industry's primary end-use business is the oil and gas industry. As a result of COVID-19, many ongoing or new projects across the oil and gas value chain are likely to face significant challenges in terms of project execution, planning, and risk management. More than 2000 EPC oil and gas projects in various categories, including LNG, petrochemicals, and oil storage and refineries, have been halted or postponed as a result of the pandemic. Apart from oil and gas and automobiles, several other industries around the world, such as electricity generation and mining, have halted Factory Automation Sensor Market Demand in almost all countries as a result of the pandemic altering the Factory Automation Sensor Market Outlook. This is expected to lower industrial sensor demand and have a significant impact on Factory Automation Sensor Market Revenue over the forecast period.

Based on sensor type, the factory automation sensor market is segmented into Temperature sensors, Vibration sensors, Humidity sensors, Proximity sensors, Pressure sensors, Vision sensors, and Others. Based on application, the factory automation sensor market is segmented into Manufacturing, Automotive, Chemicals, Energy & power, Food & beverages, Oil & gas, Aerospace and defense, Pharmaceuticals, Automotive, Others.

North America accounted for the largest market share during the historic forecast period due to the presence of several large multinational corporations operating in the market that offer various sensors for factory automation in the region. North America is experiencing a labour shortage, which is increasing demand for automated processes, lowering labour requirements, and driving the industrial automation sensor market. Because these robots use various sensors to complete jobs, the industrial automation sensors market is being driven by the increasing use of robots in factories for various applications such as packing and labelling, testing, welding, and other testing processes.

The continent of North America is divided into three sections, the United States, Canada, and Mexico. Because of the presence of numerous companies in industries such as manufacturing, food and beverages, chemical, automotive, and others that are automating their processes, the United States accounted for the region's largest market share.

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Primary Research

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Data Bank Validation

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
