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.

The real penetration of the smart temperature sensors came in nineties when Intel Corporation (U.S.) added the 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 thereby raised the modularity of the system in where these sensors are applied. Safety-related mandates in North America are acting as a driver to the growth of temperature sensors.

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

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

Temperature sensor market in North America 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.
