Market Overview

The thermocouple temperature sensors market is expected to register a CAGR of over 3.68% during the forecast period 2019 - 2024. The increasingly popular trend of the development of smart cities in countries, contributing to the high growth of the electronic security market.
  • Further, the introduction of advanced technologies in the global sensors market, along with the ever-rising trend of digital transformation in the industrial world, has resulted in a rising demand for sensors, especially for smart sensors.
  • Moreover, thermocouple temperature sensors are mainly used for thermal management and automatic transmissions systems in the automotive industry. Therefore, the stringent emission norms for automobiles, aggressive development in an autonomous vehicle, and increasing penetration of electric vehicle (EV) globally are some of the major factors driving the market growth. For instance, the Indian government is focusing on creating charging infrastructure and policy framework, so that by 2030, more than 30% of vehicles are electric vehicles.
  • In February 2019, STMicroelectronics’ has entered into a partnership with Hyundai Autron launch development lab for eco-friendly automotive sensor solutions. The collaboration will provide the environment for engineers to collaborate on pioneering solutions for eco-friendly vehicles, with a focus on powertrain controllers.
  • However, technical awareness about sensor and heating issues in the extreme condition is the key restraints which hamper the market growth.
Scope of the Report

Thermocouple-based temperature sensors account for the largest share of the temperature sensors market. The main advantage of thermocouples is that they operate over a wide range of temperature. In addition, they are among the few sensors strong enough to survive a high-temperature caustic environment, such as an engine.

Key Market Trends

Automotive Industry is Expected to Register a Significant Growth
  • The need for temperature sensors for safety and precision measurements of the smart automotive equipment, in order to analyze and produce sensor data timely, is likely to increase because of the miniaturization of the intelligent sensor technology. This is expected to fuel the demand for thermocouple temperature sensors in this application.
  • Further, Automatic Temperature Control (ATC) is a common feature among most of the electric vehicles and high-end models in the mid-range segment the increased sales of electric vehicles among high disposable income regions, such as the United States, Germany, and China, provides an opportunity for the growth of the thermocouple temperature sensors market.
  • The battery charges used for charging multiple devices in the automotive segment are equipped with temperature-sensing elements that regularly check and monitor the heating issue, as this is a common problem with batteries mostly used in automated vehicles. This helps in increasing the life of devices and decreases damage; thereby, ensuring that the batteries have charged enough.
  • Therefore, with increasing electric vehicles manufacturing, thermocouple temperature sensors demand is also expected to increase.
North America Holds the Largest Market Share
  • The United States is expected to have a prominent share in the thermocouple temperature sensor market. The country is one of the largest automotive markets in the world and is home to over 13 major auto manufacturers. Electric vehicle use in the United States has risen rapidly, with an estimated 1% of automotive sales in the US market from electric vehicles.
  • California dominates the US market in terms of sales of electric vehicles (EVs). It's Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) program is driving the demand for EVs, by requiring automakers in the state to sell a certain percentage of electric cars. US auto market, which is likely to further pressurize automakers to expand their affordable EV offerings, thereby fueling the demand for a thermocouple temperature sensor in the country.
  • Further, US aerospace manufacturers are very competitive internationally. In 2017, the aerospace industry contributed USD 143 billion in export sales to the US economy. Companies in the aerospace sector, such as Boeing, won contracts worth USD 12 billion in 2018, to supply 47 new 787 Dreamliner jets to American Airlines. Similarly, the company signed a deal with Singapore Airlines for the delivery of 39 new wide-body jets, worth USD 13.8 billion, in 2017. Such trends are expected to drive the demand for a thermocouple temperature sensor in the country.
Competitive Landscape

The thermocouple temperature sensors market is highly competitive and consists of several major players. Some of the key players are Texas Instruments, Inc, STMicroelectronics, Honeywell International, Inc., Danfoss Group among others. These companies are leveraging on strategic collaborative initiatives to increase their market share and increase their profitability. The companies operating in the market are also acquiring start-ups working on Thermocouple Temperature Sensors technologies to strengthen their product capabilities.
  • January 2019 - Honeywell Home introduced two new T-Series smart thermostats. The greatest difference between the new thermostats and earlier T-Series models is support for wireless Smart Room Sensors to balance and prioritize temperature in the home. Smart Room Sensors monitor temperature, humidity, and motion and use that information to prioritize different areas in a home. Prioritizing lets you configure which room or rooms are most important. The entire heating and cooling system will be managed, so the temperature and humidity in the higher priority rooms and areas take precedence over lower priority locations.
