[181 Pages Report] The Current Sensor Market size was estimated at USD 4.34 billion in 2023 and expected to reach USD 4.71 billion in 2024, at a CAGR 9.03% to reach USD 7.95 billion by 2030.

A current sensor measures the electric current flowing through a conductor. Current sensors are essential for monitoring and controlling power systems and are used to measure the current flowing through transmission lines, distribution networks, and electrical equipment. Current sensors are used for circuit control and protection while monitoring and enhancing the performances of electronic systems. They are primarily deployed in several electronic devices and components, such as batteries and chargers. Current sensors are useful in power metering, measurement of current supply, diagnosis of the control system, and controlling loads from motors. Current sensors integrated with backup power systems, such as uninterrupted power supply (UPS) systems and inverters, enable battery protection at the charge stage and offer increased electronic system efficiency, increasing demand for current sensors in data centers. Rising demand for Hall effect technology in current sensors and its increased use in manufacturing industries enhance the need for current sensors. However, technical concerns and high costs associated with current sensors significantly impede the adoption of current sensors. In addition, deploying IoT and IIoT with current sensors and utilizing advanced technology in current sensors is anticipated to create massive opportunities for market development.

Sensor Type: Constant utilization of current sensors to ensure the safe and efficient operation of electrical systems

Alternate-current current sensors are designed primarily to measure alternating current in electrical systems, where the direction of the flow of electric charge changes periodically. AC current sensors can measure complex waveforms with varying magnitudes and frequencies accurately. Direct-current current sensors are commonly employed in battery management systems, automotive electronics, telecommunications equipment, and data centers for measuring direct currents in electrical systems, where the flow of electric charge remains constant in one direction. DC current sensors can measure low-level currents with high precision and stability, providing galvanic isolation between high-voltage circuits and sensitive measuring devices.

Loop Type: Growing deployment of closed-loop current sensor for speedy & reliable parametres in the industry-based application

A closed-loop current sensor utilizes feedback to compare its output with input, allowing the system to continually adjust its output to achieve the desired result. Closed-loop current sensors are often used in industrial environments where accuracy and precision are important. A closed-loop current sensor is more robust to core saturation as the magnetic flux density inside the core is very small. However, an open-loop current sensor is a sensor that does not use feedback or any other form of control to achieve a desired result. An open loop system uses a single measurement or output signal that does not consider external influences such as environmental parameters or user inputs. Open loop systems are commonly used in consumer electronics such as televisions, DVD players, and cell phones. A closed-loop current sensor is commonly selected in applications that demand high accuracy, as it effectively eliminates sensitivity and nonlinearity error. Additionally, the fast response time required for protecting semiconductor switches (such as IGBTs and MOSFETs) can be achieved with the use of a closed-loop current sensor, ensuring accuracy and reliability in current measurements and making it an ideal choice for applications where precision and speed are crucial.

Technology: Advancement in isolated current sensor technology for current measurement in various application

Isolated current sensors are typically used to measure current in various applications and are designed to provide galvanic isolation from the main power source and other electronic circuits. These are categorized into three isolated sensors that are often considered as fully isolated, non-contact current sensing, including the current transformer (CT), the Rogowski coil, and the Hall-effect device. These sensors can convert a current signal into an isolated voltage signal. Some of these current-sensing circuits and signal conditioning are at high potential and directly connected to a conductor that carries hundreds of Amps. Non-isolated current sensors measure current in non-isolated applications with an output voltage proportional to the AC or DC. Non-isolated current sensors lack the galvanic isolation of their isolated counterparts but are often smaller and less expensive.

Output Type: Innovations in digital and wireless current sensors are the emerging need of current todays non-wired, automated sensing devices

Analog current sensors are designed to measure an analog current signal from a power source or load and provide high accuracy of electronic systems and a wide dynamic current range with good linearity in their output. Digital current sensors are designed to measure digital current signals from a power source or load, and they have been gaining popularity due to their fast response time and low cost. Wireless current sensors provide many benefits over traditional wired sensors, which can be installed quickly without wiring or connectors. They also offer greater flexibility in terms of installation locations and being able to monitor electronic systems remotely over long distances.

End-Use: Emerging deployment of the technologies integrated with the advanced current sensors for building automation and industrial verticals

Current sensors are widely used in the automotive industry for controlling and measuring electrical currents in onboard electrical systems and engine control units. Current sensors have become essential components in consumer electronics such as smartphones, tablets, wearables, and smart home devices due to their ability to gather data about users’ activities and environmental conditions, including health tracking. In telecommunication, current sensors are employed for monitoring power usage and helping with communication signal analysis. Current sensors are also utilized in aerospace & defense to measure current flow in high-voltage systems or to monitor battery levels during flight. In building automation, increasing focus on energy efficiency while reducing operational costs, along with growing demand for automation solutions owing to their ability to improve occupant comfort levels, are increasing the adoption of current sensors in the installation of automation systems.
