Motion sensors are all around us: the most common application of motion sensor is the automatic doors that we come across when we walk into a grocery store. Since the mid-1800s, motion sensors have been used globally. In the 1900s, astronomers used infrared light to detect the movement of planets and stars, but back then this was its only use. The discovery of radar led to modern day motion sensing devices. Samuel Bagno used the principles of radar detection to produce the ultrasonic motion alarm.

In ancient times, farmers used to gauge the movement of stars and decided when to plant crops and harvest them. The first motion sensor system radar was pioneered by Heinrich Hertz. According to the properties of waves, Hertz found that waves could bounce off of objects and had different speeds.

World War II gave a perfect platform for the development of motion sensors technology. Decades of study regarding the properties of waves facilitated detection of air and naval vessels. In the 1940s, radar technology was adequately advanced such that the military could identify attacks in advance and guided their aircrafts. The ubiquitous utilization of radar would lead to the other uses of motion detectors after the war. The report describes the various technical advantages and insights provided by motion sensor products.

The Global Motion Sensors Market report is segmented with sectors like Product, Technology, and Applications. Motion Sensors technology market forecasts are provided for each region for the period from 2011 to 2016.

Motion Sensors is an additional upcoming accessibility option combined with products. It can be seen as a replacement for the traditional mems sensors. Motion Sensors technology is in great demand with motion sensors enabled products like Smartphones & tablets, and they have the big share in the market. Consumer electronic products are the ones that contribute the most to the motion sensors market.

Different technologies are specifically used for different applications based on the features and performance of motion sensing technologies. The market is now on the rise due to increase in the use of motion sensor enabled smart phones, tablets, medical equipments, military & aerospace devices, and industrial machineries.

North America and Europe are reaching the maturity stage whereas APAC and ROW both are considered as a high growth markets. In 2010, APAC accounted for about 38.7% of the global sales and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 22.1% from 2011 to 2016. North America is contributing only $494.5 million, it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 20.3% from year 2011 to 2016.

The report deals with the market trends in Motion Sensors and the growth associated with it. It also deals with the various factors which drives and restrains the market in the next five years.

Motion Sensors market in 2010 was about $1.6 billion and is expected to grow to about 4.8 billion USD by the year 2016. It is expected to have a healthy CAGR of 21.8%.
