Market Overview

The tilt sensor market is expected to register a CAGR of 8.5% over the forecast period (2021 - 2026) As the importance and requirement of horizontal as well as vertical alignment is increasing for reliable operation of plants and machinery, the application of tilt sensors for angular position detection or leveling of mobile machinery is growing as they measure the angle of the respective object in relation to gravity.

  • The development in the MEMS technology in the sensors market along with the miniaturization, the adoption level has increased over the years for tilt sensors. The demand for tilt sensors has widened for application across the fields including, aerospace, automotive, telecommunication as well gaming application has gained the traction recently.
  • Though the cross border investments has diluted recenlty due to global economic slow down, the real estate industry and architechtural investements by the governements is fueling the growth in the construction business driving the demand for construction euipment and application of precission sensors like tilt sensors in industry has widened.
  • However, in complement to due increasing demand for MEMS bases tilt or inclination sensors, the adoption of tilt sensors based on force balance principle has limited due to its high cost. This is one of the factor impacting the market growth to an extent.

Key Market Trends

Demand from Automotive and Transportation Segment to Grow Significantly.

  • The application of tilt or inclination sensors is increasing in the automotive. These are being used along with gyroscopes primarily for improving safety for the passengers and towards improving the vehicle efficiency. The application of tilt sensor in the automotive are used various application including, electronic parking brake, roll over detection, electronic stability control, idle stop-start, among  other.
  • Additionally, with the increasing investments by the automotive companies for automation in the vehicles, the application has more widened for ADAS & intertial navigation, hill-start assistance, and dynamic headlight leveling. For instance, Mercedes has developed self-leveling headlights to adapt with the inclination turns on the road. For the same, the company has deployed tilt sensors for this automation.
  • Moreover, the automotive industry is moving with its step towards the development of autonomous vehicles. The production and adoption rate of these vehicles has witnessed rapid growth in recent years. For instance, in March 2019, BMW has started its new plant for manufacturing autonomous electric cars. UBS has also stated that the revenue from AV production and sales is expected to reach USD 243 billion by 2030.
  • More investments and expansion plans in these developments are expected to continue in the forecast period, which is estimated to drive the demand for tilt sensors in the industry.
 Tilt Sensor Market Key Trends

Asia Pacific Region is Expected to Hold the Largest Market Share

  • The tilt sensor market in the Asia-Pacific region is expected to dominate the market due to significant increase in the investments for the development of infrastructure, aerospace and defense, and telecom industry along with the presence of strong semiconductor market in the region especially driven by China, Japan, and South Korea.
  • Additionally, India is one of the major economies which is driving the demand in the region. The country's power and cement industries are expected to aid the metals and mining sector; the country is also observing an increase in demand for iron and steel. The demand is expected to drive the market for construction and mining equipment resulting in growth in the demand for precision sensors like tilt sensors.
    According to IBEF, India produces 95 minerals, 4 fuel-related, 10 metallic minerals, 23 non-metallic minerals, 3 atomic minerals, and 55 minor minerals. The country is the third-largest producer of coal and fourth in Iron ore. Owing to these factors, the country is amongst one of the largest mining equipment markets. 
  • Moreover, the governments of the countries are also extensively investing in aerospace and defense activities. According to SIPRI, the military spending in 2018 by India and China accounted for 2.4% and 1.9% of its GDP.
