Key Market Trends

Temperature Sensors to Witness High Growth

  • A smart temperature sensor is an integrated system consisting of a temperature sensor, bias circuitry, and an analog-to-digital converter(ADC). A temperature sensor measures heat to ensure that a process stays within a specific range, providing safe usage of the application or meeting a necessary condition when dealing with extreme heat, hazards, or inaccessible measuring points.
  • The demand for reliable, high-performance and low-cost sensors is increasing, thereby leading to the development of new technologies, such as microtechnology and nanotechnology.
  • The low cost, small size, and ease of use have led the sensors to have widespread utilization in various industries, such as automobile, residential, medical, environmental, food processing, and chemical.
  • Temperature sensor finds its primary usage in a smart thermostat, which is a smart home device. The overall demand for smart homes is forecasted to grow rapidly, owing to strong consumer interest, incremental technological innovations, and greater accessibility.
