Float Switch Sensor Sales Analysis (2017-2021) Vs. Market Forecasts (2022-2032)

A contact liquid level sensor, also known as a float switch, operates a switch using a float. When the level of a liquid rises or falls to a certain point, float switches regulate additional devices such as alarms and pumps.

Reed switch technology equipped with float switch sensors offers precise measurement of the height of liquid in containers. It is not necessary to use several sensors since float switch sensors have stem lengths that may be adjusted in the field to fit the dimensions of the containers. Additionally, float switch sensors such as ultrasonic sensors are ideal for use in environments where it is crucial to monitor every intermediate level of containers.

By enclosing the switch and shielding it from liquid contact, float switch sensors provide greater endurance.

The rigid cousins of floating switches in float switch sensors can be used in the upper levels of the tank to prevent damage from industrial mixers, while the floating switches in float switch sensors are limited in their application to chemical environments without industrial mixers or agitators.

Two mounting options are available, allowing for reverse switching functionality, which simplifies and reduces the cost of installation. The decreased water and power usage of float switch sensors are also expected to be a major driver.

According to Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, expanding at a CAGR of 7.3%, the global float switch sensor market is projected to reach US$ 9.22 billion by 2032.

What Factors are Influencing Float Switch Sensor Market Growth?

“Easy to Install & Power Saving Aspects Driving Sales of Float Switch Sensors”

A significant driving force is projected to be the rising demand for float switch sensors from the petrochemical and food and beverage industries. Additionally, float switch sensors are simple to install and limit water and electricity waste.

During the projected period, these variables are anticipated to improve float switch sensor sales. Furthermore, the various advantages of float switch sensors, including power conservation, autonomous operation, and reliable electrical design, are starting to appeal to a lot of end users.

“Availability of Substitute Systems & Lack of Operational Knowledge Slowing Sales of Float Switch Sensors”

The adoption and sales of float switch sensors are likely to be hindered by the introduction of optical sensors, which would in turn limit the market's expansion for float switch sensors.

Over the forecast period, it is anticipated that a lack of knowledge about a variety of applications will restrain the expansion of the float switch sensor market.

Which Market Factors are Expected to Be Profitable for New Market Participants?

“Implementation of IoT & Investments in R&D – The Way Ahead”

Due to the closure of industrial hubs and other trade impediments, the COVID pandemic in 2020 caused a slight decrease in the demand for float switch sensors, globally.

To attract attention from all across the world, producers are rolling out new products and services as the situation has normalized. The adoption of IoT solutions and their utilization in process industries is expected to contribute to speedier improvements over the following decades.

To bring in innovation for enticing customers in 2022 and beyond, top vendors such as Ametek Corporation, Savolite, Deeter Electronics, Vega Corporation, Madison, Hamilton Electronics, and SMD Fluid Controls are investing in R&D initiatives and technological improvements.

  • In August 2020, Ametek Corporation unveiled the "Model 575", a submersible level transmitter. It is a hydrostatic product for quick and accurate level measurement, making it ideal for use in lift stations, ponds, lakes, rivers, inventory tank measurements, landfills, reservoirs, or other types of water treatment facilities, such as power plants, refineries, steel mills, mines, municipal water, and wastewater treatment facilities.

How is Float Switch Sensor Market Evolving across the World?

“Rapidly Expanding Chemical Industry in North America Driving Float Switch Sensor Market Growth”

As the chemical sector expands, the North America float switch sensor market is expected to experience tremendous growth. Additionally, the food and beverage industry is increasing its demand for float switch sensors in the region.

In 2022, North America and Europe are expected to account for 23.5% and 20.1% of the global market share.

Due to the continuing expansion of the shipbuilding sector over the next several years, Asia Pacific is anticipated to lead the float switch sensor industry. Due to the rapid development of the oil and gas sector over the projected period, Western Europe in notably is predicted to experience high growth.
