Attracted US$3.4 billion in capital. What is the prospect of the sensor?

(Summary description)  According to relevant reports, in the past ten years, innovative sensor research and development companies have attracted US$3.4 billion in capital, accounting for 80% of the financing scale of sensor modules (US$4.3 billion), fully demonstrating the importance of sensors in the emerging Internet of Things market. importance. Between 2006 and 2015, total investment in the field of innovative sensors tripled, reaching USD 486 million in 2015. In the past ten years, sensor data processing technology has received more than US$620 million in financing, while packaging solutions have received only US$200 million in financing, and financing for energy harvesting wireless sensor solutions has increased to US$100 million.   Lux Research analysts evaluated the investment model for different types of sensor technologies from 2006 to 2016. Pallavi Madakasira, an analyst at Lux Research and the team leader of this analysis report, said: "After the age of computers and mobile phones, the Internet of Things will become the dominant player in the next computing era. Innovative sensor startups will continue to attract a large amount of venture capital."   Since 2006, more than 340 companies in the Americas have attracted about 80% of the total investment in sensor technology, amounting to US$3.4 billion. Europe, the Middle East and Africa received more than US$950 million in funding, while Asia received only US$200 million.       Sensor innovation is attracting investors   As mentioned above, the Internet of Things will become the dominant player in the next computing era. In the Internet of Things, sensors, as the terminals of the network system, constitute the "things" of the "Internet of Things". Therefore, in the past ten years, sensor companies of different technological directions and scales have attracted different types of investors. From venture capital institutions, private equity institutions, investment banks, government agencies to large enterprises, a lot of funds have been invested in the field of sensors.   The enthusiasm of enterprises to invest in sensors has also reached unprecedented heights. Samsung has invested a huge amount of US$13 billion in sensor technology and sensor system software development. Sony has also added US$4 billion to rapidly increase sensor production capacity. Panasonic has invested US$780 million to build an image sensor production line. IBM is also working on sensors. $3 billion has been invested in data processing. In addition, Ford has also established a research center in Palo Alto, California, dedicated to the research and development of traffic sensors.   In the past ten years, many leading cross-industry companies have invested in sensor companies, and many of them have subsequently acquired sensor companies that they have invested in. The following table summarizes the situation of sensor companies with investment amounts of US$10 million and above.   The situation of sensor companies with an investment of 10 million U.S. dollars and above     Object or human body position detection sensors attract more than $1 billion in funding   Position sensor project received nearly 1.1 billion US dollars investment, ranking first; motion sensor project received 485 million US dollars investment, ranking second; light sensor project received 475 million US dollars investment, ranking third. The pressure sensor project received approximately US$400 million in investment, and the liquid and gas concentration detection sensor project also received US$400 million in investment. The component detection sensor project received an investment of 260 million US dollars, and the flow sensor project received an investment of 290 million US dollars.     Corporate and private equity acquisitions up to nearly $1.5 billion   In the past ten years, in addition to the investment of 4.3 billion US dollars, the acquisition of sensor companies by enterprises and private equity institutions has also reached 1.5 billion US dollars. Forty-five companies have been acquired in the past ten years, but the specific transaction amount has not been disclosed to the public. The following table summarizes the recorded transactions and amounts. Almost all venture capital invests in sensor companies that focus on construction, heavy industry sensors, and consumer markets (tracking physical and chemical properties).   Since 2006, 45 sensor research and development companies have received US$1.5 billion in investment. Most are companies that focus on innovative sensor research and development, and a few are companies that focus on data processing and packaging solutions.     Conclusion and Outlook   Innovative sensor start-ups will continue to receive large amounts of capital investment. In the first quarter of 2016, 154 million US dollars of venture capital has been invested in sensor companies.

  The enthusiasm for investment in data processing technology continues. The capital investment in 2015 was 97 million US dollars, and the capital investment in 2016 will reach approximately 62 million US dollars. As wireless sensing and its demand for larger data packet processing and transmission capabilities increase, it is expected that the level of investment in data processing technology will continue to grow.
  Energy harvesting wireless sensor technology is still a potentially huge market, which is full of opportunities for sensor companies and will be a growth point for investment.
  Corporate investors will continue to acquire sensor R&D companies that have advantages in sensing technology, packaging technology and data processing technology. It is difficult for start-up sensor R&D companies to operate independently and achieve success. After forming strategic partnerships with large companies, they are more likely to be acquired by them. Startups without strategic partners will struggle and are likely to be eliminated from the supply chain.
