They offer the advantage of remote control and monitored by the user even through smartphones using dedicated applications. The demand for wireless pressure sensors is expected to increase from the consumer electronics, industrial, and medical industries as these are small in size, battery powered, can be easily integrated in portable devices, and consume less power. The increase in demand for portable devices is expected to drive the growth of the wireless pressure sensor segment from 2021 to 2026.
The piezoresistive technology accounted for the largest share of the pressure sensor market in 2020
The piezoresistive technology accounted for the largest share of the pressure sensor market and this trend is expected to continue during the forecast period. The high growth of the segment can be attributed to the suitability of the piezoresistive technology for measuring absolute, gauge, vacuum, and differential pressures in both, high- and low-pressure applications. Piezoresistive technology-based pressure sensors offer several benefits such as robustness, high frequency, fast response time (<1 millisecond (ms)), and stable performance and calibration. These sensors find applications in consumer electronics such as washing machines, dishwashers, and vacuum cleaners; oil & gas for level and air pressure detection; medical for blood pressure measurement and real-time monitoring of the arterial pulse of the skin, and for measuring the dynamic pressure in engine combustion, turbulence, and blast.
The market for the differential pressure sensors segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2021 to 2026
The market for the differential pressure sensors segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2021 to 2026. Growth can be attributed to their extensive usage in the industrial environment. In industrial processes, differential pressure sensors are installed as core elements of numerous devices to measure the flow of liquids and gases due to the pressure differences across these. They are also used to measure pressure in air, acids, bases, compressed gases, water, steam, pressure drops across oil filters or air filters, fluid levels, and flow rates. In addition, differential pressure sensors can be easily retrofitted and mounted on the surfaces of vessels.
Based on vertical, the automotive segment accounted for the major share of the pressure sensor market in 2020
Based on vertical, the automotive segment accounted for the major share of the pressure sensor market in 2020 and this trend is projected to continue during the forecast period. Growth can be attributed to the increasing demand for pressure sensors from the automotive industry to comply with the mandates implemented by governments.
