Market Overview

The North America Temperature Sensors Market is expected to register a CAGR of 6.7% during the forecast period (2020-2025). The demand for temperature sensing has gained importance in industrial settings and R&D, giving rise to increasing demand for temperature sensors. Players operating in the market spend considerable amounts in developing enhanced temperature sensor functionalities, safety mandates, and the increasing adoption of HVAC modules as the primary factor driving the market. Reduced prices and technological advancements have resulted in the introduction of new applications in the HVAC space.

  • The power generation industry along with healthcare industry utilizes temperature sensors extensively. Temperature controls play an important role in manufacturing, handling, and storing medical equipment and drugs. These are increasingly used in the communication industry with growth in handheld communication devices. The rising demand for consumer electronics such as cameras, smartphones, and media players, which use microprocessors with temperature sensing ICs, further boosts the market growth. However, significant price cuts and intense competition may restrain the temperature sensors market over the forecast period. 
  • Companies such as Emerson Electric Co., offer thermocouple temperature sensors that feature resilience and durability in tough process environments. Moreover, other companies, such as Vernier Software and Technology, offer thermocouple temperature sensors to measure temperatures in the range of –200oC to 1400oC. It can be used to measure the high flame temperature of 1400 ̊C or liquid nitrogen temperatures at -196 ̊C.
  • According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), the region is expected to supply most of the world's growing demand for oil over the next five years. Further, as per the IEA, the United States is expected to account for 80% of the global oil supply increase between 2017 and 2025, as shale producers find more ways to pump oil profitably at lower prices. Thus, the country's growing oil and gas sector is likely to boost further the demand for the market studied over the forecast period.
  • With the outbreak of COVID-19, temperature Sensors are employing IoT connectivity to speed screening of COVID-19. Players are launching new products and are involved in strategic initiatives such as partnerships to cater to the growing demands.
  • For instance, Semtech and Polysense Technologies partnered to develop a series of human body temperature monitoring devices based on Semtech's LoRa LPWAN. The sensors can offer real-time data to frontline healthcare workers and help them by quickly screening individuals with a high temperature, which is one of the most common symptoms of COVID-19.

Key Market Trends

Infrared Temperature Sensors to Drive the Market Growth

  • IR temperature sensor's applications are found in various defense applications such as optical target sighting and variable emissivity measurements that are often helpful in tracking activities. However, all these applications are very advanced and have a continuous demand due to the globally increasing military spending.
  • In recent years, even the top snack manufacturers like Frito-Lay North America, Inc, a popular division of Pepsi Co have started a new range of products that are rather baked than fried. Such trends, coupled with stringent food safety regulations worldwide, are expected to create substantial market opportunities for the IR temperature sensors in the near future.
  • FLIR has been a prominent vendor for such technology. FLIR technology has been used in ports and borders and airports and other places to look for elevated body temperatures. The company has witnessed a significant increase in those orders in the past month.
  • The list of countries using FLIR products for temperature screening continues to grow. It now includes China, Thailand, Taiwan, the Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia, South Korea, Italy, and the U.S. The company stated that its supply chain is continuing to keep up with demand.

Competitive Landscape

The North America temperature sensor market is moderately fragmented due to many players operating in the market, such as Honeywell, Analog Devices Inc, and Texas Instruments, among other regional and local manufacturers. Continuous product upgradation and industry convergence are driving the market towards highly differentiated offerings. Further, players adopt strategic initiatives such as mergers and acquisitions, partnerships, etc. to strengthen their market presence. Some of the recent developments in the market are:

  • July 2020 - Analog Devices, Inc. and Maxim Integrated Products, Inc. entered into a definitive agreement under which ADI will acquire Maxim in an all-stock transaction to strengthen Analog semiconductor leadership.
  • Feb 2020 - Texas Instruments expanded its temperature sensing portfolio to include linear thermistors that deliver up to 50% higher accuracy than negative temperature coefficient (NTC) thermistors. TI's thermistors' higher accuracy can enable operation closer to the other components' thermal limits and the overall system. It can help engineers maximize performance while reducing bill-of-materials (BOM) and total solution cost.
