Pressure Sensor Market Size, Share, Trends, Growth, Analysis, Research


The Global Pressure Sensor Market is projected to reach a value of over USD 25.7 billion by 2027 at a CAGR of around 5.6%.

A sensor is a device that measures a physical quantity such as temperature, length, force, and presssure and converted into an electrical or optical signal. A pressure sensor is an instrument which consists of pressure sensitive element to determine the actual pressure applied to the sensor and some parts to convert the information into output data. These sensors uses IC fabrication technology made up on silicon wafer to measure different types of pressures such as absolute, gauge, absolute, and differential pressures. ABB, Honeywell International Inc., Emerson Electric Co., and Omega Engineering are some of the key players in the pressure sensor market.   

PRESSURE SENSOR MARKET: Drivers & opportunites

Market Driver:

  • Rising Demand for Pressure Sensors in Automotive and Medical Applications

Increasing medical and automotive applications are expected to drive the pressure sensor market during the forecast period. Most of the critical systems rely on pressure sensors to monitor and measure key parameters to reduce the fuel consumption and improve the driver’s experience. Increasing need for detecting early faults in hydraulic brakes, optimising the fuel mix to match the air pressure, monitoring exhaust recirculation, checking the pressure of critical fluids, and activating airbags faster is expected to boost the pressure sensor market in automotive industry. In medical applications, the need of pressure sensors is to monitor non-invansive and invansive blood pressure, observing fetal heart rate, wound management, patient monitoring system, hospital beds, and dialysis systems among others.

Therefore, pressure sensors play a vital role in automotive and medical applications to fulfil various end-user demands. 

  • Advancement in Microelectromechanical Systems (MEMS)

MEMS technology uses microminiature sensors and actuators which provides small size, less weight, high performance, low cost, and easy mass-production. New advances in MEMS technology and ASIC has lead to higher accuracy, better resolution, lower energy consumption, and smaller size. These improvements enables wide range of applications in addition to conventional altimeter applications. In recent years, MEMS led the development of miniature sensors such as gyrometer, accelerometer, and pressure devices. Hence advancement in MEMS is expected to drive the pressure sensor market during the forecasts period.    

Market Opportunities:

  • Growing Awareness About Nano Electro- Mechanical systems (NEMs) Technology

MEMS technology is currently dominating the market but, sensor market cannot ignore the benefits of NEMS. NEMS will become a disruptive technology as this technology offers low power consumption, faster response, and multi-variable output such as temperature, acoustic, and pressure. As compared with MEMS, NEMS combines smaller mass with higher surface area to volume ratioand hence it is also use for ultrasensitive sensors and high frequency reasonator applications. Currently, some leading universities and research organizations are investing heaviliy in NEMS technology to develop the automation process and operating tool for helping in mass production process of NEMS devices. This investment will help many industrial verticals such as medical, automotive, and HVAC to reduced the operating cost and increase the operational efficiency. Hence growing awareness of NEMS technology will become an opportunity for pressure sensor market during forecast period.
