Current Sensor Market

Current Sensor Companies - Asahi Kasei Corporation (Japan) and Infineon Technologies AG (Germany) are the Key Players

The current sensor market was valued at USD 2.8 billion in 2023 and is projected to reach USD 4.7 billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 10.4% during the forecast period from 2023 to 2028. Growing use of battery-powered systems increasing focus on renewable energy, high adoption of Hall-effect current sensors, and increasing demand in the consumer electronics industry are some of the key drivers driving the growth of the current sensor market.

Some prominent current sensor industry players have predominantly used acquisition and partnership tactics to strengthen their market position.

  • In August 2023, Allegro MicroSystems, Inc. (US) acquired Crocus Technology (US), a privately held company and one of the leaders in advanced tunnel magnetoresistance (TMR) sensor technology that brought unique technology and products well suited to serve high-growth applications in e-Mobility, clean energy, and automation, through a definitive agreement.
  • In May 2023, Infineon Technologies AG (Germany) acquired Swedish startup Imagimob (Sweden) to boost its TinyML edge AI capabilities on its microcontrollers and sensors. Imagimob’s platform enables a wide range of use cases in embedded designs, from audio event detection, voice control, predictive maintenance, gesture recognition, and signal classification to material detection.

Asahi Kasei Corporation (Japan) and Infineon Technologies AG (Germany) are among the top 5 players in the current sensor market.

Asahi Kasei Corporation

Asahi Kasei Corporation is a Japanese multinational holding company that provides monitoring, planning, and strategic management to its subsidiaries and affiliates. It operates through four business segments, namely, Materials, Homes, Health Care, and Others.

The company operates in the current sensor market through its wholly owned subsidiary Asahi Kasei Microdevices (AKM), which provides various advanced sensing devices based on compound semiconductor technology and sophisticated IC products featuring analog/digital mixed-signal technology integrated circuits (ICs). It has expertise in designing and manufacturing high-performance analog and digital ICs. The subsidiary was earlier known as Asahi Kasei e-Materials and was changed to Asahi Kasei Microdevices Corporation in 2009.

AKM has developed advanced current sensors called Currentier, which utilize high-sensitivity compound semiconductor technology. This technology has been cultivated through the company's Hall elements, in combination with their advanced package design and analog circuit design technologies. Currentier is a magnetic open-type current sensor that features a built-in high-sensitivity Hall element. These sensors are capable of quickly and accurately detecting both DC and AC currents, despite their small size. Additionally, they generate less heat and provide high isolation.

AKM has subsidiaries and affiliates in the US, Germany, South Korea, China, Japan, and Taiwan. Some of its key subsidiaries are AKM Technology Corporation (Japan), Asahi Kasei Microdevices (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. (China), Asahi Kasei Microdevices Korea Corporation (South Korea), AKM Semiconductor, Inc. (US), Asahi Kasei Microdevices Europe GmbH (Germany), and SenseAir AB (Sweden).
