Introduction: Market Overview

Pressure sensors are widely used to control and monitor applications. A pressure sensor measures, detects, and transmits information, which helps in inspecting the performance of a device.

With the help of IC fabrication technology, pressure sensors measure various types of pressures such as vacuum, gauge, differential, and absolute pressure, and control and monitor the pressure of liquids and gases.

These generally act as transducers generating electric signal due to applied pressure. Demand for cost-efficient, reliable, and high-performance sensors has increased due to higher spending on research and development activities by market players.

Also, government regulations mandating use of pressure sensors in industries has strengthened the growth of the pressure sensor market, and is expected to increase during the forecast period.

Pressure sensors are used in various applications in the medical, automobile, consumer electronics, and oil and gas sectors.

Market Dynamics

The global pressure sensor market is mainly driven by the rising need for automation in industries. Advancements in MEMS (Micro Electromechanical Systems) and their rapid adoption in the semiconductor industry are yielding immense opportunities to the market for pressure sensors.
