Pressure sensors are expected to show good growth as they are widely used across different application segments. Currently, the market is dominated by piezoresistive and capacitive sensors but we predict strong growth of optical sensing technology as well in future due to their applications in hazardous environments. Piezoresistive sensors are heavily used in automotive and medical applications while capacitive sensing is highly recommended in the process and petrochemical and oil and gas industries.

Due to improved sensitivity, pressure sensors are used for a variety of applications such as petrochemicals, automotive segments, consumer electronics, utilities, and industrial segment. There has been a growth in the automotive industry that uses pressure sensors to a greater extent from applications such as TPMS (Tyre Pressure Monitoring System), engine management to monitoring of air volume, exhaust gas pressure of EGR system. Acceptance of pressure sensors in many application segments will add on to their consumption in the future. Safety-related mandates in regions like North America and Europe are acting as a driver to the growth of these sensors.

Technological advancement is opening new doors to the growth of pressure sensors for automotive and medical applications. Penetration of MEMS technology in pressure sensing is expected to play a lead role in the overall market in the future. Sensors based on this technology are extensively used in medical and automotive applications due to their smaller form factor.

The market size of pressure sensors in the year 2011 was $5.11 billion and is expected to reach $7.34 billion units by 2017, at an estimated CAGR of 6.3%. In terms of volume the unit shipment for pressure sensors was 8.7 billion units in the year 2011 and is expected to reach 16.37 billion units by 2017, at an estimated CAGR of 11.3% from 2012 to 2017.

Pressure sensor market is triggered due to a lot of factors. Vehicle production in emerging markets, government regulations, gradual reduction in size, and the fast growth of Asian economies are acting as drivers to the market. Pricing and maturity of critical end-user segments act as restraints to this market while advancements in ICT technology and nanotechnology applications are the future opportunities for pressure sensor market.

The penetration of MEMS technology in pressure sensing has opened doors for several new applications of pressure sensors in automotives and medical devices. Use of pressure sensors in Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems, and, moreover, it being made mandatory by the U.S. government has drastically pushed the growth of pressure sensor market. Over the last few years, the commercial applications have grown significantly as a result of improved accuracy and smaller form factors of pressure sensors. Automotive and medical applications will remain the biggest market for pressure sensors and many companies will be fighting for larger share of this market. Petrochemical applications market will be growing at a swift rate during the forecasted period and is expected to be the second largest revenue contributor for this market after automotive applications.

Continuous reduction in prices of these sensors throughout the forecasted period will be one of the strong factors for increasing their consumption in fast growing applications like automotives and consumer electronics. Asia-Pacific leads in terms of revenue generation due to the demand from developing economies like China and India. The growth is expected to remain on a higher side as APAC market offers great potential for pressure sensors for various applications especially automotives segment.

The value of pressure sensor market was $5.11 billion in 2011 and is expected to reach $7.34 billion in 2017, at an estimated CAGR of 6.3% from 2012 to 2017. In terms of volume, the total number of pressure sensors shipped was 8.7 billion units in 2011 and is expected to reach 16.37 billion units by 2017, at an estimated CAGR of 11.3% from 2012 to 2017. The rapid growth in market size is due to the developments in micro and nano technologies, growing number of applications, and the reduction in form factor of these devices.
