US Temperature Sensors Market Analysis

The North American temperature sensor market was valued at USD 2116.1 million in 2020, and it is projected to be worth USD 3213.1 million by 2026, registering a CAGR of 6.2% during the period 2021-2026. The temperature sensor measures the temperature of its environment and converts the input data into electronic data to record monitor or signal temperature changes. Adopting such process and monitoring automation in industrial and defense operations is the major driver augmenting the demand for wireless sensors in asset monitoring, security, and quality assurance.

  • Industries, such as aerospace, oil and gas, and mining, among others, are characterized by the harsh and complex operating environment and the adoption of a suitable sensor to withstand such external environment extremities and perform at the desired accuracy, reliability, precision, and repeatability are of crucial importance for these end-users.
  • Rapid technological advancements in temperature monitoring have played a crucial role in the growth of wireless temperature sensors in the past few years. Multiple large-scale manufacturers have been focusing on implementing advanced concepts such as IR sensors and heat sensors. The usage of advanced concepts is further expected to open up significant potential for the market's growth in the coming years.
  • With the increase in defense expenditure, wireless type sensors have been an emerging technology area with multiple applications within the defense industry. Applications such as integrated vehicle health monitoring (IVHM) of the defense and aerospace vehicles are primarily needed to ensure the crew's safety and the vehicle.
  • At their essence, the sensor networks have been monitoring the physical characteristics of an environment and then translating those physical measurements to electrical impulses. The sensor networks primarily measure characteristics such as temperature, among others. In various cases, the network has been designed to sense the environment and act on the physical environment based on the sensed data.
  • Temperature sensors are employing IoT connectivity to speed COVID-19 screening. The market demand for screening process equipment has enabled the demand for temperature sensors where various firms' collaboration to invent new temperature sensor devices has raised significantly. For instance, Polysense Technologies and Semtech have joined forces in developing a series of human body temperature monitoring devices based on Semtech's Long Range (LoRa) Low-Power Wide-Area Network (LPWAN). The sensors offer real-time data to frontline healthcare workers and quickly screen individuals with high temperatures, one of the most common symptoms of COVID-19.

US Temperature Sensors Market Trends

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

infrared Temperature Sensors to drive the market growth

  • IR temperature sensor applications are found in various defense applications such as optical target sighting and variable emissivity measurements, 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 rather baked than fried. Such trends, coupled with stringent food safety regulations worldwide, are expected soon to create substantial market opportunities for IR temperature sensors.
  • Forward-Looking Infrared (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.
  • Predictive maintenance is one of the functional uses of Infrared (IR) temperature sensors in the market; enterprises are increasingly focusing on predictive maintenance, automation, and IoT.
