RTD Temperature Sensors Market Analysis

The RTD temperature sensors market registered a CAGR of 5.68% during the forecast period 2021-2026.

  • A temperature sensor is basically an electronic device which measures the temperature through an electrical signal. These sensors are used in various systems and devices to measure the heat released/generated and alert the user. An RTD (Resistance Temperature Detector) is a variable resistor that changes its electrical resistance in direct proportion to changes in temperature in a precise, repeatable and almost linear manner.
  • The RTD temperature sensor market is majorly driven by the benefits it presents such as durability, accuracy, and linear response. Furthermore, the growth of the market is supported by the stringent government regulations mandating the use of these sensors in various applications to overcome heating issues.
  • Moreover, temperature measurement and control is very crucial for the steady performance of sophisticated consumer electronic products. These sensors provide long-term reliability, accuracy, and fast response times for the efficient operation of household electronics, such as home appliances, pool, and spa control, among other products.
  • Owing to their high performance, RTDs are the primary sensors of choice for sophisticated HVAC applications. Highly efficient environmental building control systems require precision temperature measurements at numerous points within a project.

RTD Temperature Sensors Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the RTD Temperature Sensors Market according to our research experts:

Automotive Industry to Hold a Significant Market Share

  • The automotive industry is currently experiencing a passive market change. The rise of the sharing economy and new partnerships with disruptive tech companies are the factors resulting in the growth of automotive manufacturers.
  • The temperature sensors incorporated in a vehicle are used for sensing the temperature of liquid and gases in a vehicle. These sensors are used in various types of components in a vehicle to sense and monitor the temperature.
  • The major markets for automotive sales are the US, China, and Europe. The drive towards innovation and the emergence of autonomous vehicles is expected to further drive the growth of automotive industry significantly in these developed regions, while the developing economies have also witnessed a considerable rise in the consumer disposable income and can directly translate into an increase in the purchase of automobiles, which is further expected to drive the market.

North America Accounts for a Significant Market Share

  • The North American region holds a significant share of the market owing to the booming manufacturing and food-processing industries in this region, especially in chamber application, where usually temperature (cold) is the only parameter monitored.
  • RTDs are currently the most advanced versions of temperature measurement sensors that provide a highly accurate, stable, linear response for a moderate range of temperatures, however, they are energy inefficient, as they need external power.
  • According to the US FDA, only two temperatures sensors are used in regulating the food and drug industry, namely resistance temperature detectors (RTDs) and thermistors. Moreover, with the growing number of employees in the chemical manufacturing industry it is evident that the chemical manufacturing industry is growing, thus, driving the market forward

RTD Temperature Sensors Industry Segmentation

To greater or lesser degrees, all the electrical conducting materials have some amount of resistance to the flow of electricity. When a known electric voltage passes through a conductor, the resistance varies based on the temperature of the conductor. This resistance can be measured and will correspond to a specific temperature. An electronic readout device, such as a controller or digital indicator designed to measure resistance, is required for use with RTD sensors.
