Market Synopsis

Increasing use of reed sensors in automotive industry is one of the major factors fueling the growth of reed sensor market. Apart from the automotive industry, reed sensors have various applications in consumer electronics, robotics & automation, telecommunications, safety & security among others. However, susceptibility to breakage during installation is one of the factors hindering the adoption of reed sensors in the market. Use of reed sensors in electric vehicle is also expected to fuel this market in the coming years. These manufacturers, however, face challenges in improving the efficiency and reliability of reed sensors. Therefore, most of them are investing in research and development of cost-effective and reliable reed sensors owing to the increasing demand. Key players such as Littelfuse Inc., HSI Sensing, RMCIP, Standex-Meder Electronics Inc., PIC GmbH, Coto Technology, Pickering Electronics Ltd, Aleph America Corporation among others are continuously focusing on expanding their product portfolios and are adopting inorganic strategies such as mergers and partnerships to expand their geographic presence and broaden their customer base.

A reed sensor senses and detects the movement, proximity, and liquid level and flow measurement in the presence of an applied magnetic field. These sensors have a low contact resistance, typically as low as 50 milliohms and are capable of withstanding much higher voltages. Reed sensors are unaffected by the thermal environment and can be operated in the range from -50° C to +150° C with no special additions, modifications or costs.

World Micro, Inc., Atlanta-based electronics distributor, signed a franchise distribution agreement with PIC GmbH, suppliers of reed sensor technology. This agreement enables World Micro to promote, distribute, and market PIC GmbH’s product line of reed switches and sensors.
