Temperature Sensor refers to electronics devices that are capable of sensing temperature and provide an output in digital form. Temperature sensors are categorized into two types: Contact Sensor and Non-Contact Sensor. Contact sensor touch the object to measure the temperature generated whereas Non-Contact sensor measures the temperature without having physical contact with the object. Presently, Temperature sensors are used in electronics devices such as laptops and smartphones among others to monitor battery and ambient temperature. This conserves the battery life of the devices and prevents the damage of expensive components used in the devices.

The report ‘Temperature Sensor Market’ is segmented into six verticals that include: By Product Type, By Rtd Type, By Alloy Used, By Metal used, By End-User Applications and By Geography. On the basis of Product type, the report is segmented into Temperature Sensor IC, Resistive Temperature Detector (Rtd), Thermistor, Thermocouple and Non-Contact Sensors. Temperature sensor caters its application in diverse industries comprising of Automotive, Petrochemicals, Metal Manufacturing, Power Industries, Consumer Electronics, Food and Beverages, Life Science and many others. The report is also analyzed based on the geographic regions such as North America, South America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World to provide notable region impacting the Temperature sensor market.

Accurate temperature measurement is one the primary parameters of almost every industry including Oil & Gas, Chemicals, Power Generation, Metal Processing, Electronic Equipment and Automotive. The growing verge of automation in industries will drive the temperature sensor market. Contact sensors such as thermocouples and thermistors will witness growth rates owing to the miniaturization of electronic processing units. The market of non-contact sensor will also remain robust and is penetrating in food and beverage sector rapidly owing to government regulations to reduce wastage of foods across the globe.

The top players differ in each of the temperature sensor category such as thermistors, RTDs, IR sensors and few others. In the IC temperature market, Texas Instruments, Analog Devices, Maxim Integrated, Microchip Technology and ON Semiconductor are some of the dominant players with nearly 88% of the IC temperature Sensors market in 2015.

The methodology for estimating the temperature sensors market has been highly dependent upon the mapping of each type of sensors with several applications. The notable parameters for such mapping included temperature ranges, accuracy, response time, cost, sensitivity and replacement cost. Gradually, the products involving the temperature sensors were estimated with specific number of sensors integrated inside them. Thus, an overall estimate was determined for specific products and applications which were further validated with industry experts both at technical and market levels.
