Worldwide, the industrial manufacturing industry is continuously moving more and more toward automation. Consequently, there is an ever-increasing demand of technologies used to operate these mechanisms properly. Electro-Sensors, Inc. (Nasdaq: ELSE) manufactures and sells various monitoring and control systems used in machine production across multiple industries. In addition, last year they merged with Mobile X Global, Inc. to develop a new wireless brand and dip their feet into another industry. Overall, they have a massive variety of products and services available domestically and internationally that should solidify their presence in the market.

Hence, Electro-Sensors has substantial room to grow their market share.
