The heat flux is defined as the amount of heat transferred per unit area from or to surface. Heat flux sensors converts the heat energy into electrical signal, the heat flux sensors are basically transducers that generates the electrical signal proportional to the total heat rate applied to surface of the sensors. Heat flux sensors are also called as heat flux gauge. It determines the total heat that is generated on the surface. During the exposer of the heat flux sensors to the heat energy, the sensor generates the electrical input that allows for the heat flux to be determined. Heat flux sensors are used for the number of applications for testing and measurement. They can be used to study the heating effect on building structure based on which relevant thermal experience can be applied. These heat flux sensors can also be used to test these vehicles to see how much heat flux is generated when these vehicles are subjected to various levels of stress. For the construction of the green buildings, the heat flux sensors are used widely now a days. The main aspect of a green building is that the power consumption of these buildings are barely minimal. The heat flux sensors are used widely in the agriculture, to determine the amount of energy stored in the soil. On the basis of this the amount of water and the type of crops to be used can be decided. Some of the factors that are boosting up the heat flux sensors market are the same, that is the number of applications requiring testing and measuring, there are a number of R&D centers that are being setup in order to look at effective thermal management where minimal material is required. There are also some of the factors that are restraining the heat flux sensors market such as resultant error caused by disturbed heat flow. Some heat flux sensors have a limited temperature resolution, which hinders the exactness in measurement and is acting as a challenge for the market.
The global heat flux sensors market is segmented on the basis its applications, measuring type, and region. On the basis of applications, the heat flux sensors market has been segmented into buildings / construction, aerospace & defense, metrology, agriculture, healthcare, chemical engineering, material science (PCM- phase change material), textile, sports, firefighting, pharmaceuticals, food & beverage, energy & power, others.
