Sensor Fusion Market

Sensor fusion is the utilization of sensors from discrete sources to form a whole image. The sources can include cameras, LiDAR, and radars. The global sensor fusion market report by Market Research Future (MRFR) provides an outlook on the various sensor algorithms, software developed, and the various upgrades for the period of 2018 to 2023 (forecast period). The COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on the industry is explored at depth in the report.

Market Scope

The worldwide sensor fusion market is expected to grow from USD 2.25 billion in 2017 to USD 6.37 billion by 2023 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 19.45% during the forecast period. The integration of sensors in smartphones and other consumer electronic devices as well as its miniaturization can drive the industry. The dipping prices of micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) and its potential in climate monitoring, healthcare, industrial control, healthcare, and automotive systems can spur the market growth.

The rise of wearables, autonomous vehicles, and robots can provide plenty of growth opportunities for the market. Advances in internet of things (IoT) and context awareness can favor the market. Furthermore, the development of hybrid networking infrastructure, sensor fusion algorithms, and aggregation of data from multiple sensors can bode well for the market. The Kalman filter is a prime example which models the previous and current versions of the system through continuous monitoring. Implementation of neural networks and machine learning for fusion of data and security to increase reliability and integrity of normal operations can lead to its adoption among various industrial sectors.

However, complexities in the marriage of sensor fusion and software can pose a challenge to the market.
