The global Ultrasonic Sensors market is expected to reach USD 5 billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 10% during the forecast period 2022 to 2030. The rising use of Ultrasonic Sensors for object detection, distance measurement, and in healthcare for Ultrasonography are the some of the factors which are driving the global ultrasonic sensors market.


Market Overview

The ultrasonic sensor is an electronic device which is used to measure the distance of an object by emitting ultrasonic sound waves and it transforms the reflected sound into an electrical signal. Ultrasonic waves travel fastest compared to the speed of audible sound which means it is a sound that is audible to the human ears. It consists of two components such as receiver and a transmitter. The transmitter basically emits the sound through piezoelectric crystals and a receiver encounters that sound after it has travelled to and from the target. These are mainly used in the automobiles self-parking technology and anti-collision safety systems. Not only this but also ultrasonic sensors are widely used in health care systems to create images of internal organs, identify tumours and check the health of babies in the womb.
