Motion Sensor Market: An Insight On the Important Factors and Trends Influencing the Market

Press Release   •   Jan 24, 2018 04:15 EST

Motion sensors are devices which are used to sense movements of objects. It is used to view a change in position of an object relative to its surroundings or the change in the surroundings relative to an object. Rapid expansion of the automotive industry in the APAC region is expected to bolster the overall motion sensor market.

The automotive industry growth in the developing nations of Asia Pacific can be attributed to rising domestic demand of cars having new technological advancements. Due to this factor motion sensors have catered the automotive market for applications such as advanced driver assistance system (ADAS), security and airbag deployment system present in mid and high segment cars. Due to these factors, automotive sector is expected to grow at the highest rate among other applications.
