Customer Intelligence

Temperature sensors are expected to witness tremendous growth in the next five years as they are widely used across different application segments. Currently, the market is dominated by contact type sensors like thermocouples and RTDs but we predict strong competition between contact and noncontact temperature sensing technologies in future. Noncontact temperature sensors are dominated by IR temperature sensors and increasingly used in high-temperature applications. IR sensing is highly recommended in the food and beverage industry, plastic industry, metal industry, etc.

Due to improved sensitivity, temperature sensors are used in loads of applications such as petrochemicals, automotive segments, consumer electronics, computer peripherals, space applications, and industrial segment. There is rise in demand for consumer electronic devices, which use microprocessors such as smartphones, media players, cameras and gaming devices that make use of temperature sensors ICs to a greater extent. Acceptance of noncontact temperature sensors in many application segments will add on to their consumption in future. Safety-related mandates in Europe are acting as a driver to the growth of temperature sensors.

Technological advancement is opening new doors to the temperature sensors in Europe with regards to petrochemicals.

The market size of Europe temperature sensors in the year 2013 was $788 million and is expected to reach $1.01 billion by 2018, at an estimated CAGR of 5%. In terms of volume, 535 million temperature sensors were shipped in the year 2013 and the number is expected to reach 888 million by 2018.

Temperature sensor market in Europe is triggered due to a lot of factors. For the temperature sensor market, vehicle production in emerging markets, increasing government intervention, availability of strong aftermarket and continuous demand from consumer electronics and computing peripherals are acting as drivers. Competition within the technologies, pricing, and maturity of critical end-user segments are acting as restraints. Technological advancement and emergence of MEMS in temperature sensing are the future opportunities for temperature sensors.
