“Temperature Sensor Market is driven mainly by increasing penetration of temperature sensors in advanced and portable healthcare equipment, growing demand for temperature sensors in the automotive sector, and rising adoption of home and building automation systems.
Non-contact temperature sensor to witness a higher CAGR during the forecast period; The non-contact temperature sensor is projected to record the higher CAGR in the temperature sensor market from 2019 to 2027. Non-contact sensors measure the surface temperature of a body or an object to be identified without any physical contact between the sensor and the object. These temperature sensors are mainly used for small, moving, and inaccessible objects/sources/devices.
Digital output to hold the largest share in the temperature sensor industry during the forecast period; The temperature sensor comprises analog and digital outputs. The digital output segment is projected to hold a larger share in the temperature sensor market during the forecast period. Temperature sensors with digital output have several advantages over sensors with analog output and are especially suited for remote applications. Digital temperature sensors find use in medical, aerospace, test and measurement equipment, and industrial automation.
Food & beverages end-user industry to witness the highest CAGR during the forecast period; The food & beverage end-user industry is projected to record the highest CAGR in the temperature sensor market from 2019 to 2027. Temperature monitoring and control is required for quality assurance during production, storage, and transit. Temperature sensors are particularly used for monitoring temperature according to the stringent rules & regulations for complicated processes in the food end-user industry, such as brewing, bottling, fermentation, storage, emulsification, piping, canning, and pasteurization.
Absolute humidity sensor to hold the larger share in the humidity sensor industry during the forecast period; The humidity sensor comprises an absolute humidity sensor and a relative humidity sensor. The absolute humidity sensor segment is projected to hold a larger share in the humidity sensor market during the forecast period. Absolute humidity sensors, supported by two NTC thermistor elements, measure the absolute humidity by measuring the difference in thermal conductivity of dry air and the air containing water vapor. These humidity sensors are used for measuring humidity in HVACs, fax machines, printers, automotive, weather stations, refrigerators, and food processing units.
Expanding automobile & industrial manufacturing sector to drive the demand for temperature sensors in APAC during the forecast period
