Sensors play an important role that cannot be ignored in modern industrial automation production
In modern industrial production, especially in automated production processes, various sensors are used to monitor and control various parameters in the production process, so that the equipment works in normal or optimal conditions, and the products reach the best quality. China's sensor market has continued to grow in recent years, with a growth rate of more than 15%. In 2012, the four major areas of sensor applications in China were industrial control, automotive electronics, communication electronics and consumer electronics.
With the advent of the information age, sensors have become the main way and means for people to obtain information in the fields of nature and production. In modern industrial production, especially in automated production processes, various sensors are used to monitor and control various parameters in the production process to make the equipment work in normal or optimal conditions, and to achieve the best quality of products; in basic disciplines In the research, the sensor has a prominent position.
Today, sensors have already penetrated into a wide range of fields such as industrial production, space development, ocean exploration, environmental protection, resource investigation, medical diagnosis, bioengineering, and even cultural relic protection. It can be seen that the important role of sensor technology in developing economy and promoting social progress is very obvious. Statistics show that the annual operating income of the global smart sensor market will increase at a rate of 10 per year and will reach US$6.9 billion by 2018. At present, the number of sensor devices with processors installed in the world is 65 million, and this number will reach 2.8 trillion by 2019.
Sensors are the basic products in the electronic information equipment manufacturing industry, and are the special components in the new electronic components that are being developed. As a high-tech industry recognized at home and abroad with a promising future, the sensor industry has attracted worldwide attention for its high technical content, good economic benefits, strong penetration capability, and broad market prospects. Driven by the booming electronic information industry market, my country's sensors have formed a certain industrial foundation, and have made considerable progress in technological innovation, independent research and development, transformation of results, and competitiveness, making important contributions to promoting the development of the national economy.
China's sensor market has continued to grow in recent years, with a growth rate exceeding 15. In 2012, the four major areas of sensor applications in China were industrial control, automotive electronics, communications electronics and consumer electronics, of which industrial and automotive electronics accounted for about 42 market shares. From January to March 2012, driven by the development of the Internet of Things industry, my country's sensor market reached 17.21 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 23.3. According to data from the National Bureau of Statistics, from January to March 2012, my country produced 1.17 billion sensors of various types, an increase of 13.7 year-on-year. In terms of import and export, according to data from the General Administration of Customs, as of March 2012, imports have increased by about 40 year-on-year; the export situation is less optimistic. The slowdown in my country's export growth is almost reflected in all export markets (except South Korea), and the impact on Europe The decline in exports was particularly significant, with the lowest growth rate in exports to the EU.
Looking back at the development of my country's sensitive components and sensor industry, although rapid, there are still some shortcomings, such as low product technology, weak industrial foundation, lack of product categories, and weak corporate R&D capabilities. Therefore, the country is successively formulating policies that are conducive to the development of the sensor industry. In addition, the continuous emergence of emerging technologies has also become a favorable factor for the development of the sensor industry. With the development and application of new sensors applied to the Internet of Things, low-carbon economy and other fields, the sensor industry will occupy a more important position in the electronic component industry and play a greater role.
In modern industrial production, especially in automated production processes, various sensors are used to monitor and control various parameters in the production process, so that the equipment works in normal or optimal conditions, and the products reach the best quality. Therefore, it can be said that without many excellent sensors, modern production has lost its foundation.
Sensors have important applications in many industries, and many industries are now trying to open up the use of sensors to ach
