Growth of pressure sensors in air monitoring systems will drive the demand for industrial sensors

Pressure sensor accounts for a market share of over 22% through 2026. This is due to its wide adoption in military, chemical, manufacturing, energy, and other sectors on account of its high performance and reliability in harsh environments.

Pressure sensors play a vital role in the efficient functioning of the HVAC system by accurately measuring pressure in the system for efficient air distribution and measurement of airflow.  Implementing pressure sensor and monitoring airflow in each room help HVAC to optimize the building’s airflow, cooling, and heating, and reduce energy consumption; therefore, the growing demand for HVAC systems will increase the demand for pressure sensors and drive the industrial sensors market share.

Increasing government initiatives regarding the implementation of HVAC systems in institutions are likely to create high market opportunities. For example, ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers) and IAQA (Indoor Air Quality Association) collaboratively proposed a guideline for inspection of mild growth and moisture instruction in educational facilities.

Industry players are enhancing their product portfolios for pressure sensor to increase their operational capability in various industries, driving the market revenue. For instance, in March 2019, STMicroelectronics announced the development of a new water-resistant MEMS pressure sensor to deliver high stability, accuracy, and chemical compatibility for various applications including industrial sensing.

Market players are focusing on increasing their production capacities as a result of growing demand from industrial machinery manufacturers. Pressure sensors enable enhanced monitoring of vacuum or pressure and help in equipment maintenance prior to failure, thereby boosting the operational capability in the manufacturing industry.

Growing adoption of the Industrial IoT in manufacturing industry will propel market growth
