Driven by many favorable factors above, China's industrial automation industry still has a lot of room for growth, and the industrial control sensor market will continue to grow rapidly in the next few years. Taking into account factors such as the growth of the national economy, the process of industrialization and the trend of market historical data, it is estimated that the annual compound growth rate of China's industrial control sensor market will reach 21.5% during 2011~2015. By 2015, the scale of China's industrial control sensor market will be It reached 23.1 billion yuan.
2.3 Market Segments
2.3.1 Inductive sensor
Inductive sensors are sensors that convert measured changes into changes in inductance. The inductive sensor uses electromagnetic induction to convert the measured physical quantity such as displacement, pressure, flow, vibration, etc. into a change in the self-inductance coefficient and the mutual inductance of the coil, and then converts the circuit into a voltage or current change output, thereby achieving non-electricity to Conversion of electricity. Inductive sensors detect physical quantities such as displacement, vibration, force, strain, flow, and acceleration. Inductive sensors are widely used in mechanical equipment manufacturing, engineering machinery, automotive, packaging, textile, rubber and plastics due to their simple structure, high sensitivity, high resolution and response frequency, good resistance to environmental interference, wide application range and cost-effectiveness. , tobacco, steel, petrochemical, new energy and other industries. Inductive sensors are the most widely used sensors in China's industrial measurement and control field. In 2010, the market size reached 2.697 billion yuan, accounting for 31% of the overall market. The rapid development of advanced equipment manufacturing, modern logistics, intelligent transportation, CNC machine tools, energy conservation and environmental protection will bring huge market opportunities for inductive sensors. Inductive sensors will also be a class of industrial control sensors with the greatest growth potential in the next few years. It is expected that the inductive sensor market in China's industrial sector will maintain a rapid growth rate of 26.7% per year from 2011 to 2015.

2.3.2 Pressure sensor
A pressure sensor is a sensor that converts pressure into an electrical signal output. It is generally composed of an elastic sensitive component and a displacement sensitive component (or strain gauge). The function of the elastic sensitive component is to apply the measured pressure to an area and convert it into displacement or strain, and then convert it into an electrical signal that is related to the pressure by the displacement sensitive component or strain gauge.
Common pressure sensors include resistance strain gauges, semiconductor strain gauges, piezoresistive, resonant, capacitive acceleration, and fiber optic pressure sensors. The most widely used is a piezoresistive pressure sensor, which has a very low price, high precision and good linearity.
