Global Temperature Sensor Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A temperature sensor is a device used to measure the temperature of an object or environment. Temperature sensors are used in a wide range of applications, from consumer products to industrial and scientific instruments. The most common type of temperature sensor is the thermocouple, which generates an electric current in response to changes in temperature.


A thermistor is a heat-sensitive device that changes its resistance value when the temperature changes. Thermistors are used in various applications such as temperature sensors, thermoelectric generators, and voltage regulators. The growth factor for the market is high demand from end-use industries such as automotive & transportation and medical equipment manufacturing which includes heart rate monitors, blood glucose sensors among others.

Resistance Temperature Detector (RTD):

Resistance temperature detector (RTD) is a type of sensor that converts thermal energy to electric energy. It's major applications are in thermometers and heaters. Thermometer uses include industrial, medical, food processing and packaging, automotive industries etc., whereas heaters use includes furnaces/boilers, kilns/ovens and other heating equipment.

Application Insights:

Automotive was the largest application segment in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The increasing need for monitoring and controlling various engine functions such as temperature, pressure, and fuel level is driving the demand for automotive electronics. In addition, growing concerns regarding vehicle safety are propelling growth of this segment. Temperature sensors are used in automobile electronic control systems to monitor coolant temperature so that appropriate heat management strategies can be employed by ECUs during normal operation as well as during hard overheating or under cold starts. These factors are projected to drive global automotive electronics industry over the forecast period thereby benefitting market growth across regions.

Manufacturing accounted for a significant share on account of extensive usage of process controllers which require constant monitoring of process conditions such as temperature & pressure among others which drives their demand globally across all industries where manufacturing activities take place including aerospace & defense, oil & gas etcetera).

Regional Analysis:

The market in North America is expected to grow at a significant rate over the forecast period owing to the presence of major players such as Honeywell International Inc.; Maxim Integrated Products Inc.; and Johnson Controls, LLC. The region accounted for more than 30% revenue share in 2016 and is anticipated to reach around USD X billion by 2030.

The European temperature sensor market was valued at over USD X billion in 2016 and is estimated to grow significantly over the forecast period due to increasing demand from automotive manufacturers for advanced temperature sensors that can withstand high temperatures while maintaining accuracy. The growing electronics industry in Europe will drive product demand further, especially with rising applications such as medical devices, energy management systems, security systems used across various industries including manufacturing, oil & gas exploration/production (E&P), aerospace & defense (AD) among others to name a few are driving regional growth.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from the automotive industry for temperature sensors in vehicles for efficient and accurate engine performance.
  • Growing demand for thermal management systems in data centers, telecom, and other industries to maintain an optimum operating temperature.
  • Proliferation of smart devices and the Internet of Things (IoT) is expected to drive the market growth as these devices require temperature sensors for effective functioning.
  • Rising awareness about energy conservation is also propelling the market growth as temperature sensors help optimize energy consumption by regulating equipment temperatures accordingly.
