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 such as thermocouples and RTDs; however, a strong competition between contact and noncontact temperature sensing technologies is expected in the coming years. Non-contact temperature sensors are dominated by IR temperature sensors and increasingly used in high-temperature applications. IR sensing is highly recommended in the food & beverage industry, plastic industry, and metal industry, among others.


The real penetration of the smart temperature sensors came in the 90’s when Intel Corporation (U.S.) added thermal management to the motherboard and microprocessor. Smart temperature sensors can now directly communicate with microcomputers in a standardized digital format. This has helped reduce the complication, and has thereby raised the modularity of the system in where these sensors are applied. Safety-related mandates in North America are acting as a major driver for the growth of temperature sensors.

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


The value of the North America temperature sensor market in 2013 was $1.02 billion and is expected to reach $1.3 billion by 2018, at a CAGR of 5.1% from 2013 to 2018. In terms of volume, 697 million temperature sensors were shipped in 2013 and the number is expected to reach 1.15 billion by 2018.


The temperature sensor market in North America is triggered due to a lot of factors. The major drivers for the growth of the temperature sensor market include increased vehicle production in emerging markets, increasing government intervention, availability of strong aftermarket, and continuous demand from consumer electronics and computing peripherals. The competition within the technologies, pricing, and maturity of critical end-user segments are acting as restraints. Technological advancements and emergence of MEMS in temperature sensing are the future opportunities for temperature sensors.
