Ultrasonic sensors are utilized for liquid level measurement, distance measurement, object detection, pallet detection, and anti-collision detection, among others. There are a number of factors fuelling the growth of the market for ultrasonic sensors. The top factors include the rising demand for ultrasonic sensors from the healthcare sector and the increasing automotive sensors market in China. In addition, the rising adoption of urban traffic driving aid systems is another factors augmenting the growth of the market.

Ultrasonic sensors have a wide range of applications and are highly popular globally. The key factors increasing the demand for ultrasonic sensors have been elaborated as under:

  • Rising Usage for Treatment of Cancer: Ultrasonic sensors are being highly employed for the treatment of cancer as ultrasonic energy transmission on the body of humans through ultrasonic sensors aids in the generation of thermal energy, which is majorly utilized for destroying any type of cancer cells. Hence, the rising incidence of cancer globally will stimulate the growth of the market for ultrasonic sensors. 
  • Flaw Detection in Concrete and Metals: Owing to the fact that ultrasound waves are able to travel by penetrating through materials, they are also utilized for detecting flaws within numerous materials. This is why the demand for ultrasound sensors is increasing and they are being highly employed for degradation diagnosis, to detect cracks, and seismic diagnosis and these take place on concrete and metals.
  • Rising Utilization in Sonography: High-pitched sound waves are made by ultrasonic sensors and these travel via the body and are targeted on a specific part of the human body that needs to be inspected. In pregnant women, if these waves are focused on the womb, the echo will be picked up by the scanning device and this will help in the creation of visual images of the fetus or unborn baby along with the presentation of its movements.
  • Examination of Eyes: Ultrasonic sensors are majorly utilized within the medical field. These are able to achieve what radiology could not. Ultrasonic waves can also be used for sensitive areas unlike radiology.  Radiology isn’t utilized in case of sensitive eyes owing to the harmful radiations emitted by them. 

Hence, the market for ultrasonic sensors is poised to rise exponentially in the coming years. However, the depletion in after sales of ultrasound sensors may inhibit the growth of the market in the coming years.
