The overall magnetic field sensor market is expected to grow from USD 2.25 billion in 2015 to USD 4.16 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 8.87% between 2016 and 2022. Some of the leading players in the magnetic field sensor market are Asahi Kasei Corporation (Japan), Infineon Technologies AG (Germany), Melexis NV (Belgium), Sanken Electric Co., Ltd. (Japan), and Micronas Semiconductor Holdings AG (Switzerland), among others. These players have adopted various growth strategies such as new product launches and developments, partnerships, contracts, collaborations, acquisitions, and expansions to widen their global presence and increase their shares in the magnetic field sensor market.

One of the major challenges for magnetic field sensor market is the stiff competition among established technology markets. Currently in magnetic field sensor market, sensor types such as Hall effect sensors and magnetoresistive sensors (AMR, TMR, GMR) are amongst the widely preferred sensors. As of now, Hall effect sensors are replaced by Hall ICs in the electronics sector for various applications. Technologies such as Hall effect and AMR have been in the market since long time. Now from past two years (Between 2014 and 2016), MEMS-based sensors such as MEMS-magnetic field sensor and inductive sensing are also in demand. Apart from this other sensors like magneto inductive sensor, reed switches sensor, magneto-optical sensor are not used in much applications. So for magnetic field sensor market to grow there should be an increase in the demand of these sensors as well for the market to rise.

Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) comprises of mechanical and electrical components designed in a way to work together for various day to day applications related to biomedical and consumer electronics sector. MEMS-based magnetic field sensor has a wide variety of applications in medical & healthcare sector. MEMS-based sensor products provide an interface that can sense, process, and/or control the surrounding environment. Nowadays MEMS inertial sensing is being widely used in cars and notable consumer electronics. MEMS-based magnetic field sensors are likely to witness increasing demand between 2016 and 2022 owing to its features such as smaller in size, reliable and more functional as compared to other technology based-sensors.
