Industrial Sensor Market size is set to surpass USD 30 billion by 2027, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.
Rising integration of connected devices and IIoT solutions across the manufacturing sector will boost the market growth. Industrial sensors help manufacturers to track and monitor thousands of equipment & components, such as motors, tanks, conveyors, and generators, in real-time using IoT technology. These sensors enable manufacturers to achieve early fault detection and reduced downtime issues, thereby increasing productivity in plant facilities. The market players are also emphasizing on integrating IoT technology in their industrial sensor offerings, further fueling the market expansion.
Sustainability issues associated with industrial sensors are one of the major factors restraining the industrial sensor market progression. Industrial sensors, such as gas sensors and image sensors, are based on Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS) technology, which faces severe drawbacks such as low sensitivity and accuracy when operated in high-temperature environments. Piezoelectric crystals are used as a raw material for manufacturing industrial pressure sensors. These crystals have high-temperature sensitivity and fail to provide precision pressure measurement in high-temperature environments. The inability to provide precision measurements and producing false alarms are some of the factors, restraining the overall industry growth.
