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.

Due to improved sensitivity, temperature sensors are used in loads of applications such as petrochemicals, automotive segments, consumer electronics, computer peripherals, space applications, and industrial segment. There is rise in demand for consumer electronic devices, which use microprocessors such as smartphones, media players, cameras and gaming devices that make use of temperature sensors ICs to a greater extent. Acceptance of noncontact temperature sensors in many application segments will add on to their consumption in future. Safety-related mandates in North America and Europe are acting as a driver to the growth of temperature sensors.

Technological advancement is opening new doors to the temperature sensors with regards to aerospace & defense application. They are holding a small market share but bright future is on the way. Temperature sensor ICs and IR sensors are expected to play a lead role in the overall sensors’ market in future. Sensors like RTD and certain thermocouples used for industrial and process applications are costlier than sensors that are used in the consumer and automotive segment. This allows technologies like IR to evolve in terms of technology and provide cost-effective solution.

The market size of temperature sensors in the year 2010 was $3.27 billion and is expected to reach $4.51 billion units by 2016, at an estimated CAGR of 5.6%. In terms of volume, 2.02 billion temperature sensors were shipped in the year 2010 and the number is expected to reach 3.54 billion by 2016, at an estimated CAGR of 10% from 2011 to 2016.

Temperature sensor market 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.

The largest application segment for temperature sensors is the petrochemical segment, together with related process applications. The electronics segment follows as the second largest application segment for temperature sensors. The petrochemical and related process market is comparatively mature but the consumption of temperature sensors is expected to continue growing in automotive segment as car manufacturers find more ways to integrate sensor-related features on their production vehicles. In the automotive industry, the temperature sensors are improving passengers’ comforts, engine‘s efficiency, and performance. New temperature sensors such as the IR temperature sensor offer several key advantages. They allow contactless and consequently corrosion-free measurement of temperature. These devices have gained immense popularity in food and beverage industry and chemical segment.

A thermocouple (type of temperature sensor) is a device consisting of two different conductors (usually metal alloys) that produce voltage proportional to the temperature difference, between either ends of the two conductors. Thermocouples are a widely used type of temperature sensor for measurement and control and can also be used to convert a temperature gradient into electricity. They are inexpensive, interchangeable, are supplied with standard connectors, and can measure a wide range of temperatures. In contrast to most other methods of temperature measurement, thermocouples are self powered and require no external form of excitation. The main limitation with thermocouples is accuracy and system errors of less than one degree Celsius can be difficult to achieve.

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 they are increasingly used for use in high-temperature applications. IR sensing is highly recommended in the food and beverage industry, plastic industry, metal industry, and many more. Many tier one companies are investing in research and development to improve the existing noncontact IR temperature sensing technologies and develop newer ones.

Texas Instruments (U.S.), Maxim Integrated Products (U.S.), Analog Devices (U.S.), Sensata Technologies (U.S.), STMicroelectronics NV (Europe), Micron Technology (U.S.), CTS Corporation (U.S.) & Microchip Technology (U.S.) are a few key players in the market. Texas Instruments (U.S.) has recently acquired National Semiconductors, which has solidified its analog business that includes temperature sensor.
