Global Occupancy Sensor Market to Reach US$ 6.4 Billion by 2032, Impelled by Increasing Development of Smart Cities

April 15, 2020 | Technology & Media

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Occupancy Sensor Market Report by Network Type (Wired, Wireless), Technology (Passive Infrared, Ultrasonic, Dual Technology, and Others), Building Type (Residential, Commercial), Coverage Area (Less Than 89 Degree, 90 Degree-179 Degree, 180 Degree-360 Degree), Application (Lighting Control, HVAC, Security Surveillance), and Region 2024-2032," the global occupancy sensor market size reached US$ 2.5 Billion in 2023. Occupancy sensors are motion-activated control devices that can detect the presence of individuals in a particular environment. These devices detect the occupancy of the room by the use of motion-detecting sensors. They automatically alter the lights, temperature and ventilation of the area by turning equipment on or off as per the number of the occupants. Their application aids in achieving automatic control over fans, lights and air conditioners installed in residential as well as commercial spaces while complying with the building codes. They are also employed to enable precise control over lighting solutions in a building and prevent unnecessary usage of energy.

Global Occupancy Sensor Market Trends:

The global market is primarily driven by the emerging trend of smart cities across the globe. This can be attributed to rapid urbanization, inflating disposable income levels and population growth. In line with this, the development of smart cities has led to the increasing adoption of connected data sensors and advanced technologies to ensure quality environmental development. The installation of occupancy sensors in various establishments aids in reducing energy consumption and reducing light pollution, owing to which there has been a significant increase in their uptake. The rising demand for smart parking assistance across numerous parking lots and the increasing number of government initiatives encouraging the adoption of smart construction are also acting as major growth-inducing factors. Apart from this, there has been a significant increase in the demand for energy-efficient devices across the residential, commercial and industrial segments.

Enhanced focus toward sustainable development, the requirement for automation across numerous sectors, the need for efficient triggering sensors and accurate movement detection, and escalating prices of electricity on the global level are providing a thrust to the market growth. Moreover, extensive research and development (R&D) activities, along with the continual launch of improved and innovative product variants, such as image processing occupancy sensors (IPOS) and micro-phonics, are driving the market further. Other factors, including several building codes and standards that require switching off lights and other appliances in public spaces within a timeout setting, and the implementation of sustainable programs in various countries, is creating a positive outlook for the market. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 6.4 Billion by 2032, expanding at a CAGR of 10.7% during 2024-2032.
