Temperature sensors primarily refer to devices which helps in recording data related to temperature. Temperature sensors help in converting any sort of current or voltage into a specific numerical value. Bimetallic is a specific type of temperature sensor which has different applications in oil & gas, chemical processing, mining, metal and plastic among other industries. Bimetallic temperature sensors primarily convert a temperature change into mechanical displacement. It consists of two strips made of metals for example copper or steel, which expands while connected with heat. These types of sensors have basic applications in thermostats, clocks, thermometers, heat engines and electrical devices among others. The bimetallic temperature sensor market has been segmented into by application which includes electrical devices (household appliances), thermometers, thermostats, clock, heating devices, heat engines and grills among others. The market for bimetallic temperature sensors has been segmented geographically into Asia Pacific, Europe, North America, South America and Middle East and Africa.
Increasing demand for temperature sensors in different industries which includes oil and gas, mining, metal, chemical processing and automotive is stimulating the market for bimetallic temperature sensors globally. Moreover, increasing application of temperature in household appliances and growing advancement in the field of consumer electronics is also contributing in the positive development of the bimetallic temperature sensors market. Domestic water and steam based central heating systems have bi-metallic strip thermostats, which is also influencing the market in a positive way. Growing usage of temperature sensing devices in research and development activities is also boosting the market for bimetallic temperature sensors globally. Increasing technological advancement in the medical and food and chemical and food processing and industrial sector is also acting as major driving factors for the market globally. Shorter lifecycle bimetallic temperature sensors one of the prime restraints and may inhibit the growth of the market over the forecast period. Increasing research and development activities and with the increasing application of bimetallic temperature sensors in hybrid vehicles are some of the major opportunities for the market.
