There has been a significant increase in the demand for proximity & displacement sensors across diverse industrial applications in China. Over the years, China has become the most popular manufacturing hub in the Asia-Pacific region, thereby accelerating the adoption of proximity and displacement sensors. China would continue to dominate the Asia-Pacific proximity and displacement sensors market to reach $592.6 million by 2020. Indian industries have also witnessed rapid implementation of automation across diverse sectors. The high adoption of automation in India would make the country the fastest growing proximity and displacement sensors market in the Asia-Pacific region during the forecast period 2015 – 2020. Other countries in the region including Indonesia, Thailand and Malaysia are experiencing industrial development owing to hike in labor costs, rising issues of intellectual property protection, and high rate of inflation in established industrial bases such as China. Hence, the proximity & displacementsensors market in these countries is forecasted to grow at a high rate during the period of forecast period 2015 – 2020.
