According to a recent market study published by Growth Market Reports, titled, Global Electrostatic Sensor Market by Product Type, Type of Electrostatic Sensor, Technology, Application, End Use Industry, and Region: Size, Share, Trends and Opportunity Analysis, 2016-2031, the market was valued at USD 840.5 Million in 2022 and is expected to expand at a moderate growth rate of 5.4% by the year 2031.

As per Growth Market Reports industry analyst Pratiksha Deshmukh, the global electrostatic sensor market is anticipated to witness significant growth during the forecast period 2022-2030. An electrostatic sensor is a device that detects and measures the intensity of electric fields generated by electrostatic charges present in various environments. These sensors convert strength of the electric field into an electric potential, enabling precise calculations of static electricity levels. The operation of these sensors typically involves electrostatic induction, wherein a detection electrode acquires a charge proportional to the intensity of the electric field when placed near an electrified object. Electrostatic sensors often employ techniques such as canceling out direct current (DC) noise through a chopping mechanism to enhance accuracy. Electrostatic sensors cover broad ranges with increasing measurement distances while maintaining consistent performance across similar technologies such as electrometer, as the electric field emanates spherically from an electrified source.

The Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic highlighted economic disparities, global interdependence, and governance challenges. Pandemics are isolated concerns for businesses and prospects for emerging patterns & vulnerabilities. Companies investing in political, business, and financial stability, as opposed to decreasing global risks, implemented strategies to overcome the pandemic. The COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on the global electrostatic sensor market. The enforced shutdown of factories led to a slowdown in the production and distribution of these components. This disruption resulted in a downturn in the market growth rate. In 2021, the electrostatic sensor market recovered and continued its growth trajectory, despite various challenges. This optimism is based on the increasing demand for miniaturization and rising demand for process automation in various sectors, including consumer electronics and automotive applications.
