Global Temperature Sensor Market: Overview

Temperature sensors refer to devices which helps in recording data related to temperature. A temperature sensor helps in converting any voltage or current into a specific numerical value. Advanced temperature sensors are also used in research and development facilities with various scientific uses. The contact and non-contact temperature sensors form the different types of temperature sensors. These contact temperature sensors have been used in different industry verticals owing to the low cost. These sensors are used when the thermal equilibrium needs to be maintained and there is no flow of heat between the objects where the sensor needs to be in contact with the object to measure the temperature. The non-contact temperature sensor helps in measuring temperature when the surface is moving and measures temperature with the help of heat radiation emitted from the surface or object.

Temperature sensors have different product types, such as thermistors, thermocouple, infrared temperature sensor, fiber optic temperature sensor and bimetallic temperature sensors among others. These different type of temperature sensors include both simple and complex applications. Growth in automation, across verticals such as aerospace and defense, automotive, semiconductor and electronics and healthcare among others, has been some of the primary reason for the growth of temperature sensor market globally. The increasing importance for advanced healthcare equipment has also been boosting the growth of temperature sensor market.
