Scope of the Report

The automotive, chemical, oil and gas, steel, consumer electronics, medical sectors show a strong ground for temperature sensors market. RTDs growing market is a reflection of its usage to measure the temperature at higher ranges with more accuracy in comparison to thermocouples or thermistors. The PRTs which makes use of Platinum, are more precise in measurements and stable as it doesn’t require a cold junction compensation as thermocouples do. this report segments the market by The Temperature Sensors market is segmented by Deployment (Wired, Wireless), Type (Infrared, Thermocouple, Resistance Temperature Detectors, Thermistor, Temperature Transmitters, Integrated Circuit, Fiber optics), End-user Industry (Chemical & Petrochemical, Oil & Gas, Metal & Mining, Automotive, Food & Beverage, Consumer Electronics, Power Generation, Medical, Aerospace & Military) and Geography

Key Market Trends

Consumer Electronics segment to witness highest growth

  • The trending wearable gadgets, such as bands and smartwatches, advanced ultra-thin personal computers and tablets, and smart home gadgets, make use of temperature sensors to work efficiently.
  • More businesses in wearable segment are closely working on improving the reliability of temperature readings with more easy to wear devices like t-shirts/workwear, in-ear devices, patches and head gears specifically for consumers at large.
  • Trends in the personal computing industry, such as smaller system size, faster processors, and the need to support more advanced applications make monitoring and controlling heat more important than before.
  • Furthermore, temperature sensor manufacturers need competence in software component to develop connected devices for greater adoption and product differentiation. Joint Ventures/Collaborations and Acquisitions are observed in temperature sensor market.
  • For instance, in 2016, TDK Corporation acquired InvenSense to realize new sensor applications in IoT and Automotive sector. This acquisition promotes further growth in sensor products.

North America is expected to hold the major market share

  • The United States is the second largest producer of passenger car vehicles after China, according to the German Association of Automotive Industry. The use of temperature sensor in HVAC system contributes the most after applications in consumer/home electronics
  • The Oil & Gas, Automotive, Consumer Electronics sectors are the largest sources of demand for the temperature sensors in the country
  • Consumer Technology Association has projected USD 301 billion of wholesale revenue from Consumer Electronics Shipments in the U.S. for the year 2019
  • In 2017, FOSA (Fiber-Optic Sensing Association) was formed in Washington, DC to make producers aware about benefits of integrated fiber optic sensing in Oil & Gas and Railways to start with
  • Under NAFTA agreement, U.S Imposed 25% tariff on Steel which affects Canada’s imports for automobile manufacturing

Competitive Landscape

The competitive rivalry is not consolidated in this market, despite the presence of few major players operating in the market such as Honeywell, Texas Instruments and STMicroelectronics among other regional and local manufacturers. The competitive rivalry among existing competitors is high. Continiuous product upgradation and Industry Convergence is driving the market towards highly differenciated offerings. Some of the key developments in the area are:

TE Connectivity launched NTC Thermistor in 2017, a light weight product, small in size with high efficiency (operate at -1500C) and low cost. One of its key applications is in the automotive industry, where it monitors the temperature of batteries in electric cars, preventing battery overheating.

In 2018, Amazon puts USD 61 million investment into smart thermostat company Ecobee to realise benefit from connected devices trend in the industry.
