Smart pressure sensor type to hold a major share of the smart sensor market
Pressure sensors are among the key measuring and monitoring sensors used in most end–user industries. Pressure is an important parameter of diverse disciplines such as aerodynamics, thermodynamics, acoustics, fluid mechanics, and biophysics. MEMS-based pressure sensors have been widely utilized in consumer electronics, automotive systems, environmental monitoring, and medical diagnostics sectors among others. Thus, these sensors are expected to hold the major share of the smart sensor market between 2016 and 2022.
Trend of miniaturization in the sensors segment and growing consumer electronics sector are driving the smart sensor market
The tremendous technological developments in the past decade have led to considerable reduction in the size of sensors; for instance, the size of pressure sensor has been reduced from approximately 0.5um to 1 mm. The reduction in the size of these sensors and the adoption of MEMS technology have resulted in a wide horizon of applications for sensors in the fields of automotive, aviation, healthcare, wireless and optical communications, and consumer products. Moreover, the growing demand for smart devices and wearable electronics in the consumer electronics sector are some of the major growth drivers.
