Temperature Sensors: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, California (PRWEB) April 22, 2015
Follow us on LinkedIn - Temperature sensors find use in a wide range of applications that require continuous monitoring, maintenance and control of temperature at a desired level. Thermal protection and management represents a crucial function in virtually all electronic devices, mechanical equipment and industrial processes. Industrial sector, including heavy industrial production and manufacturing facilities, and process industries such as petrochemical chemical, food & processing units and refineries, represent major end-use markets for temperature sensors. Consumer electronics industry ranks as another major end-use market, where Temperature sensing circuitry is used for thermal management of electronic devices, such as, computers, and mobile computing devices. Automobiles too have tremendous potential for the use of temperature sensors in enhancing the engine performance and improving passenger safety and comfort. Expanding applications of temperature sensors in food & processing industries, pulp & paper, water and wastewater treatment are helping drive growth in the market.
Key factors spurring adoption of temperature sensors in industrial and manufacturing plants include focus on energy efficiency, optimum asset utilization, and the growing preference for automated process control solutions. The trend towards automated process monitoring and control is especially benefiting demand for smart temperature sensors featuring self-diagnostic and communication capabilities. The market is also poised to benefit from technology developments, which render temperature sensors more accurate, reliable, efficient, versatile, and cost effective. Thermocouple sensors and resistance temperature detector (RTD) are growing in popularity encouraged by benefits such as ease of use, tough design, low cost and accurate temperature measurement capabilities. Temperature sensors in smaller form factors will continue to gain significant traction given the trend towards miniaturization of electronic devices. Development of MEMS based temperature sensors and use of nanotechnology for their production will guide future innovation and growth in the market.
As stated by the new market research report on Temperature Sensors, Europe represents the largest regional market worldwide. Asia-Pacific ranks as the fastest growing market with sales projected to grow at a CAGR of about 7.8% over the analysis period. Demand in the region is expected to strengthen guided by factors such as increase in manufacturing investments and productivity in developing Asian countries as a result of growth in Asia-to-Asia trade amid flattening trade with developed countries, and stable automobile production trends. The resulting new plant establishments, capacity expansions, and automation of process monitoring and control will positively benefit demand in the market.
