Increasing Demand for Temperature Sensors in Consumer Electronics

Temperature measurement and control is crucial to the steady performance of sophisticated consumer electronic products. The sensors provide long-term reliability, accuracy, and fast response times for the efficient operation of household electronics, such as home appliances, pool, and spa control, among other products. Owing to their high performance, RTDs are the primary sensors of choice for sophisticated HVAC applications. Highly efficient environmental building control systems require precision temperature measurements at numerous points within a project. Applications include monitoring and controlling room and air duct temperature, outside ambient temperature, condenser temperature, coolant line temperature, etc. Known for their precision, RTD has found a wide range of applications in the consumer electronics industry and the demand for them is expected to grow during the forecast period.

Automotive Sector Has the Highest Market Share

The automotive industry is currently experiencing a passive market change. The rise of the shared economy and new partnerships with disruptive tech companies, are the factors resulting in the growth of automotive manufacturers.

The three key markets for automotive sales are the US, China and Europe. The drive toward innovation and the advent of autonomous vehicles is expected to drive the growth of automotive industry significantly in the developed regions, while the developing economies have witnessed a considerable rise in the consumer disposable income and can directly translate into an increase in the purchase of automobiles.

North America region has a significant market share

The highest share is attributed to the booming manufacturing and food-processing industries, especially in chamber application, where usually temperature (cold) is the only parameter monitored. RTDs are the most advanced versions of temperature measurement sensors that provide highly accurate, stable, linear response for moderate range of temperatures; however, they are energy inefficient, as they need external power. According to the US FDA, only two temperatures sensors are used in regulating the food and drug industry, namely resistance temperature detectors (RTDs) and thermistors. The number of employees in the chemical manufacturing industry is growing, directly implying the growth of chemical manufacturing industry.
