The trend of printed sensors in industrial applications has encouraged manufacturers to develop negative temperature coefficient (NTC) thermistors that are based on the novel printed silicon technology. Manufacturers in the silicon temperature sensor market are combining these thermistors with other printed components such as humidity and pressure sensors. They are also increasing their manufacturing capacities of printed sensors for a variety of conventional electronics to provide insights on MIC.

Bendable Substrates Gain Prominence in Printed Devices

Though silicon temperature sensors are gaining increased applications in IoT and electronics, certain limitations of the technology are likely to negatively influence market growth.

The silicon temperature sensor market is facing a potential threat from advanced printed sensors that are not based on the principles of traditional silicon sensor systems. These printed sensors attached in printed devices offer better flexibility for applications in consumer electronics, due to their low-profile bendable substrates. These advanced sensors also provide better cost-efficiency than conventional silicon sensors, as manufacturers require minimum material cost to combine these advanced sensors with measurement systems on a single substrate.

Thus, manufacturers need to make advancements in better designs to capitalize on the profits in the growing sector of printed devices. Manufacturers should replace traditional PCB designs with more bendable substrates in the silicon temperature sensor market.
