Temperature Sensor Market size to surpass $11Bn by 2032

  • Published Date: January 30, 2023

Temperature Sensor Market size is projected to surpass USD 11 billion by 2032,  according to a recent research report announced by Global Market Insights Inc.

The steady rise in building automation across developed and developing countries is expected to have a positive impact on the temperature sensor industry. The increasing inclination towards luxury lifestyles and smart homes has prompted the installation of temperature sensors in building automation to provide sensory information to smart devices such as HVAC systems, and fire alarm detection systems. Moreover, increasing emphasis on reducing residential and commercial power consumption will accelerate the adoption of advanced energy-efficient temperature regulation systems.

Rising medical application scope to propel demand for contact temperature sensors

Contact temperature sensors held more than 85% market share in 2022 on account of their wide temperature range, low cost, and high accuracy. They have the ability to function adequately under harsh environmental conditions, and thus have widespread demand across the chemical, oil & gas, energy & power, and automotive sectors.

Contact temperature sensor segment is further segmented into thermistors, temperature sensor ICs, thermocouples, bimetallic temperature sensors, and resistive temperature detectors. The thermistors sub-segment is poised to surpass USD 2.5 billion by 2032. Rapid industrialization is fostering the demand for thermistors for controlling and monitoring temperatures throughout a range of operations. Rapid penetration of NTC thermistors in the healthcare sector for clinically complex measurements such as continuous monitoring of preterm infants, hypothermia, personal heat strain monitoring in occupational medicine, and testicular temperature evaluation in reproductive medicines will also drive the market growth.

Rise in energy-intensive industries to propel adoption of analog temperature sensors

Temperature sensor market valuation from analog output segment reached over USD 5.5 billion in 2022. Analog temperature sensors are widely used across consumer goods, industrial and automotive applications to offer low cost, compact size, and low power requirement. Moreover, the rising advancements in temperature sensors are allowing companies to integrate analog into digital converters to boost measurement accuracy. The increasing preference for temperature sensors with analog output can also be attributed to the use of continuous data flows for temperature measurement, unlike one measurement storage capability of the digital counterpart.
