Global Pressure Sensors Market is valued at USD 14.68 Billion in 2021 and expected to reach USD 25.32 Billion by 2028 with a CAGR of 8.1% over the forecast period.

Scope of Pressure Sensors Market

The force exerted on a surface per unit area is expressed as pressure. A pressure sensor is a device that detects a force (pressure) exerted on a surface and transforms it to an electrical signal with strength proportional to the force. The force exerted can also be measured using pressure sensors. The piezoelectric effect is utilized in the majority of pressure sensors. In reaction to stress, a material generates an electric charge. Pressure is the most common source of stress, although it can also be caused by twisting, bending, or vibrations. The pressure sensor measures pressure and uses the electric charge to calculate the amount of pressure and also monitors and regulates the pressure of gases and liquids. It detects, measures, and sends data that aids in the analysis of a device's performance. It utilizes silicon wafer-based IC assembling procedures. These sensors can monitor a variety of pressures such as; gauge, absolute, vacuum, and differential pressure and are broadly utilized in a various industries. These are utilized in hundreds of everyday applications for control and monitoring. Other names for pressure sensors are pressure transducers, pressure senders, pressure transmitters, pressure indicators, piezometers, and manometers. The pressure measurement of interest in pressure sensing is pressure, which is represented as a force per unit area. Evangelista Torricelli (1608-1647), an Italian physicist, devised the barometer in 1643 to measure atmospheric pressure, or the force of air over the earth's surface.

Increasing Use of Pressure Sensors in Automotive Industry, Rising Demand for Smart Wearables & Health Monitoring Devices and Growing Use of Pressure Sensors in Household Appliances are Driving the Market Growth

One of the major factors driving the growth of global pressure sensors market is the growing use of pressure sensors in automotive industry. Pressure sensors are broadly utilized in car applications to quantify and control the pressure of different auto fluids including motor oil, gearbox and transmission oil, and hydraulic oil in braking systems, cooling systems, and fuel systems. There is expanding demand for pressure sensors from the automotive business attributable to different safety mandates by governments. In engine management systems, to upgrade the effectiveness of motors, pressure sensors are needed to precisely monitor motor conditions like air volume and exhaust gas pressure of the EGR system. For instance; in October 2019, Melexis declared a Pressure Sensing IC explicitly for Engine EVAP Systems. The designs of a relative pressure sensor IC to work in and measure shallow pressures across car applications are characteristic of the organization's backing of the rise in hybrid vehicles. The MLX90821 can recognize the littlest vapor leaks, as a central piece of EVAP frameworks.

In addition, rising demand for smart wearableshealth monitoring devices are also supplementing the market growth. Air pressure sensors assume a significant part in wellness trackers, smartphones, smartwatches and different wearables and in the latest IoT world. Their utility isn't restricted to mobile climate applications, as they additionally give exact height estimations to change indoor navigation, calorie counting and numerous different applications. For example; as per the news published on December 8th, 2021; NextNav announced an association with Bosch Sensortec, to empower more exact vertical area in barometric pressure sensors. Through the partnership, Bosch Sensortec will approve the precision of estimations and give strong performance confirmation to Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) using its sensors in mass-market items including smartphones, tablets, and wearables.

Furthermore, rising utilization of pressure sensors in household equipments like refrigerator & washing machines also drives the growth of global pressure sensors market. A pressure sensor assumes a very important part in refrigeration as it gives feedbacks required by the pump used to decrease the pressure in the compartment. All the while, pressure sensors are utilized in washing machines to manage how much water needed for washing garments, which fundamentally lessens water wastage. However, major pricing pressure may hamper the global pressure sensors market growth. In spite of that, increasing adoption IoT by end-use industry can provide various opportunities for the further growth of the global pressure sensors market.
