First, the size of the sensor company
There are more than 1,700 companies engaged in the production and research and development of sensors in China, among which more than 50 are engaged in the research and production of microsystems. At the same time, sensors are increasingly being applied to all areas of social development and human life. Such as industrial automation, agricultural modernization, aerospace technology, military engineering, robotics, resource development, ocean exploration, environmental monitoring, security, medical diagnosis, transportation, household appliances, etc.
Second, the establishment of three major sensor production bases
With the support of the government, China's sensor technology and its industry have made great progress. In particular, under the guidance of the dual-addition project, namely, speeding up efforts and accelerating development, China has established a production base for sensitive components and sensors in China.
At present, China has three major sensor production bases, namely: Anhui base, which is mainly to establish a force and photosensitive economies; Xi'an base is mainly to establish voltage-sensitive, heat-sensitive, and automotive electronics economies of scale; Heilongjiang base mainly establishes gas, Humidity-sensitive economies of scale are the main targets.
Third, the geographical pattern of the sensor industry
China's sensor manufacturers are mainly concentrated in the Yangtze River Delta region, and gradually formed regional spatial layouts based on central cities such as Beijing, Shanghai, Nanjing, Shenzhen, Shenyang and Xi'an.
Yangtze River Delta region: centered on Shanghai, Wuxi and Nanjing. It has gradually formed a relatively complete sensor production system and industrial support including heat sensitivity, magnetic sensitivity, image, weighing, photoelectric, temperature and gas sensitivity.
Pearl River Delta region: mainly in the central city of Shenzhen. The sensor industry system consisting of thermal, magnetic, ultrasonic and weighing is composed of foreign-funded enterprises in small and medium-sized cities nearby.
Northeast China: mainly in Shenyang, Changchun and Harbin. It mainly produces MEMS force sensitive sensors, gas sensors and humidity sensors.
Beijing-Tianjin area: mainly based on universities. Engaged in the research and development of new sensors, filling the gap in China in some areas. Beijing has established a national micro/nano laboratory.
Central region: Zhengzhou, Wuhan and Taiyuan. The close combination of production, study and research has developed well in industries such as PTC/NTC thermistors, inductive digital liquid level sensors and gas sensors.
In addition, the sensor industry is accompanied by the rise of the Internet of Things, and has developed rapidly in other regions such as Shaanxi, Sichuan and Shandong.
With the advancement of many technologies such as electronic technology, material technology, physical technology, and chemical technology, sensors are still developing in the direction of new types.
The new type of sensor is mainly characterized by miniaturization, intelligence, digitization, multi-function, systemization and networking. These characteristics of the new sensor are the result of the evolution of the sensing technology and the requirements of the new era of intelligent sensing technology.
1. Driven by the market
With the rapid development of emerging industries such as the Internet of Things and the mobile Internet, the sensor industry has also ushered in tremendous opportunities for development.
The advancement of informationization and intelligence has brought a huge market to the sensor industry. In the fields of intelligent agriculture, intelligent industry, intelligent transportation, building energy conservation, smart environmental protection, smart grid, health care, smart wear, etc., sensors have broad application space. .
2, technology pull
In recent years, the number of institutions and inputs for sensor technology research and development outside China has been increasing, and sensor technology has also achieved rapid development.
With the continuous development of advanced sensors, new sensors, low-cost, high-performance sensors, the cost of sensor applications will continue to decrease, and the application effects will continue to increase, thus driving the continued development of the sensor industry.
3. Policy promotion
In recent years, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology has issued relevant policies such as the “Twelfth Five-Year Development Plan for the Internet of Things” and actively researched and introduced policies to support the development of the sensor industry. In the future, the sensor industry will face more relaxed policies. surroundings. With the support of national policies, the sensor industry will usher in a period of rapid development.
4. Integration promotion
With the intensification of market competition, the integration of M&A in the sensor industry is increasing. Foreign large-scale sensor companies have formed their respective technological advantages through mergers and acquisitions. The merger and reorganization of Chinese sensor companies has also begun to become bigger and stronger, such as Goer Acoustics and Aerospace Electronics. Enterprises such as Dongfeng Technology continue to enhance their competitiveness through mergers and acquisitions.
In the future, the formation of China's sensor leading enterprises will greatly enhance the industrial competitiveness and promote the healthy development of the industry.
The overall quality of China's sensor industry is uneven, and the self-sufficiency rate of high-end products is insufficient. By the end of 2013, there were more than 2,000 enterprises and institutions engaged in the research, production and application of sensors in China. There are more than 50 enterprises engaged in the research and production of microsystems, with more than 6,000 product types and a total annual output of more than 4 billion. Market sales exceeded 100 billion yuan.
However, China's sensor small enterprises account for nearly 70% of the total, the products are mainly low-end products, high-end products account for a relatively large proportion, including about 60% of sensors, about 80% of sensor chips, and 100% of MEMS chips.
In recent years, China's sensor market has continued to grow rapidly, with an average annual growth rate of more than 20%. In 2011, the sensor market scale was 48 billion yuan, reaching 51.3 billion yuan in 2012, reaching 64 billion yuan in 2013 and over 80 billion yuan in 2014.
Affected by the huge prospects of sensors, China's sensor companies are also increasing, mainly including Huagong Technology, Suzhou Gushu, and Da Li Technology. In terms of sensor technology, Chinese companies have basically mastered the technology of low-end and mid-range sensor development, and are gradually expanding into high-end areas.
The gap with foreign countries has provided space for our growth, and also pointed out the direction, and China has also achieved rapid development in the field of electronic information technology in recent years, so in the stimulation of huge market demand, in many local enterprises With the participation, Chinese sensor companies are expected to achieve impressive results.
