Market Trends of Pressure Sensors Industry

Automotive is Expected to Hold Significant Share

  • The pressure sensors in the automotive sector are driven by major factors such as tire pressure, brake fluid pressure, vapor pressure in the fuel tank, fuel injection and CDRi, and manifold absolute pressure, among others, which create application opportunities.
  • For a long time, pressure sensors have been extensively utilized in various industries, including the automobile sector, to gauge the pressure of crucial fluids such as engine oil, gearbox and transmission oil, and hydraulic oil in braking, cooling, and fuel systems. The automotive industry offers diverse pressure sensor alternatives as it undergoes technological advancements to enhance safety, comfort, and entertainment. The compact size of these sensors has significantly influenced their widespread adoption in automotive design.
  • Moreover, pressure sensors are utilized in electric vehicles to prevent finger entrapment indoors. Additionally, most electric vehicle cooling systems strive to maintain battery packs at their optimal operating temperature for extended periods. As automakers endeavor to incorporate battery packs with greater capacity in electric vehicles, the requirements for these cooling systems to manage such demands are also escalating.
  • Therefore, pressure measurement has emerged as a crucial factor in the liquid cooling system of an electric vehicle. Pressure sensors play a pivotal role in providing feedback for regulating and optimizing the cooling system and detecting pressure loss that may indicate leakage. With the increasing complexity of liquid cooling systems, the need for precise and resilient pressure sensors for electric vehicle cooling systems is anticipated to be higher than ever.
  • Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) sensors are utilized for pressure sensing and as an air mass flow sensor. Technological advancements have led to the development of more compact and battery-free tire pressure sensor modules. MEMS-based energy harvesting systems are currently integrated into tires to reduce module size.
  • The increasing sales and production of electric vehicles necessitate pressure sensors for various applications, including battery cooling fluid and vapor detection. As per the IEA, electric vehicle sales will constitute approximately 65% of total car sales by 2030 in the Net Zero Scenario. Such rising EV sales will create demand for pressure sensors.

Asia Pacific to Dominate the Market

  • China presents a highly promising market for the global medical industry, characterized by vast size, diversity, and growth potential, driven by a confluence of government backing and evolving demographics. Furthermore, with an increasingly elderly populace and heightened demand for superior medical equipment, the government has prioritized developing the healthcare sector, serving as a key impetus for the market.
  • Pressure sensors are utilized in medical devices to oversee the pressure within the chamber and regulate the pressure level administered during treatment. China is a prominent global hub for medical device manufacturing. 
  • As per the National Medical Products Administration, the number of medical device companies in China reached 32,632 by December 2022, exhibiting a steady growth from 13,000 in 2008. Most of these companies, over 90%, are small and medium-sized enterprises. Such significant capabilities will enhance the application opportunities for the pressure sensors in the region.
  • The automotive industry in Japan is the third-largest producer of automobiles globally, boasting 78 factories across 22 prefectures. Major companies such as Toyota, Kei, and Nissan contribute significantly to the country's economy, with automotive manufacturing accounting for 89% of the transportation machinery industry.
  • Additionally, the growth of auto parts suppliers has become a substantial component of Japan's economy. Such significant automotive capabilities will create the demand for pressure sensors for various applications, such as to gauge the pressure of crucial fluids such as engine oil, gearbox and transmission oil, and hydraulic oil in the braking, cooling, and fuel systems. The region's progress in augmenting electric vehicle (EV) sales is also anticipated to stimulate market demand.
  • Pressure sensors are utilized in HVAC systems to monitor the state of air filters. The rise in differential pressure across the filter can be detected as it becomes clogged with particulates. The demand for pressure sensors in India is estimated to rise due to the increasing demand for HVAC equipment. This demand is expected to accelerate due to the rapid construction of residential and commercial infrastructure, which is anticipated to expand as a result of the growing urban population in the region.
  • The rising consumer electronics manufacturing, investments in the automotive industry, and developments in other sectors are expected to create the damned for pressure sensors in Asia-Pacific.
