Pressure Sensors: A Global Strategic Business Report

Follow us on LinkedIn – The global market for pressure sensors is witnessing steady growth driven by the growing importance of gas and liquid pressure measurement in process applications. Major end-use industries for pressure sensors include chemical, petrochemical, automotive, process, electronics and healthcare. Key product variables for success in the marketplace include accuracy, reliability, and cost effectiveness, as customers across all end-use sectors seek cost effective products with superior performance capabilities. The growth in the market in the coming years will be driven by technology advancements in MEMS based pressure sensors and robust demand from developing markets.

In the automotive sector, pressure sensors find use in engine management, automatic transmission and tire pressure monitoring applications. Pressure sensors are commonly used in light vehicles for smooth engine functioning and safety while driving. In passenger cars, the sensors are used for monitoring oil and coolant pressure, and for achieving maximum engine performance by determining barometric air pressure (BAP) and manifold intake air pressure (MAP) for the engine control unit. Automotive engineering designs are being recalibrated to reduce vehicle emissions and in this regard, pressure sensors are finding increased use in evaporative control systems. Given its widespread use in automobiles, the steady rise in demand for and production of automobiles worldwide bodes well for the automotive sensors market. Significant growth in car sales, particularly in China and India, is expected to fuel demand for automotive pressure sensors. In addition, stringent safety regulations legislated in developed regions like North America and Europe are giving the market regulatory driven demand stability.

One of the most noteworthy innovations in product technology is the introduction of micro electromechanical systems (MEMS) and micromachined ultra-low-pressure sensor. MEMS pressure sensors are especially forecast to witness robust growth, supported by their increasing use in consumer electronics and mobile devices, guided by advantages such as higher performance, accurate measurement, and small & lightweight form factor. MEMS based pressure sensors are already finding huge applications in the HVAC sector. Also, given the use of micro and nanotechnology, these sensors are now more compact and relatively inexpensive, and are high on performance and reliability parameters.

As stated by the new market research report on Pressure Sensors, Asia-Pacific represents the largest as well as the fastest growing market worldwide with a CAGR of 9.4% over the analysis period. Sales of industrial and automotive pressure sensors in the region are expected to benefit from increasing investments in new manufacturing plant establishments, plant capacity expansions, replacement and upgrade of plant assets/equipment, and rising automobile ownership rates. Developing industrial sectors, particularly in countries such as China, India, Korea, Taiwan and Indonesia are expected to add momentum to market growth. With China being a major automotive manufacturing hub, and with Korea and Taiwan leading from the front in consumer electronics, Asia-Pacific will remain major market for pressure sensors in the coming years.
