Industrial Sensors Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Rising adoption of Industry 4.0 globally - Only around half of businesses are actively engaged in Industry 4.0; the remaining businesses are either in the planning stages or are utilizing technologies sparingly. Currently, businesses and nonprofits across the globe invest a great deal of time, resources, and effort into creating innovative strategies to combat the negative effects of the past.

    Manufacturing lines, business procedures, and teams can work together regardless of network, time zone, geography, or any other factor due to Industry 4.0 technology.


  • The rising implementation of the Internet of Things to push the demand for sensing materials - Smart and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies are developing and being used at a rapid pace, opening up new avenues for technical breakthroughs in a variety of areas of life.

    As stated in the European Commission Statistics, Internet of Things devices were utilized by 29% of EU businesses in 2021, primarily for security purposes on their property. IoT technologies are primarily intended to streamline various operations, guarantee increased system (technology or process) efficiency, and ultimately enhance quality of life.
  • Rising need for industrial automation worldwide - Industrial automation has developed gradually over the last few decades, with few changes to the structure of the market.

    The market for industrial IoT (IIoT) and connection is predicted to develop at a rate of eighteen percent, outpacing all other segments of the industrial automation market. This is the primary industrial automation income stream for hyperscalers. The increasing adoption of Industry 5.0 and different 3D sensors has completely changed the market.


  • The excessive price of industrial sensors - The maker must select premium raw materials to create a good temperature sensor. Numerous metals and alloys, including copper, platinum, silicon, nickel, tungsten, and various classified alloys, are employed in the manufacturing of these sensors. Platinum has been more expensive in the last few years. In May 2020, the price of 99.95pc min platinum was USD 830/toz, up from USD 621/toz on March 19, 2020.

    The cost of temperature sensors rises as a result of this abrupt increase in raw material costs, which also raises the cost of production distribution overall.
  • Complicacy of design of industrial sensors - Intricacy in the design of the sensors will impede the industrial sensors market expansion by the end of 2036. The best way to construct a RISC sensor is still a problem, though. The lack of quality models is the primary cause.

Industrial Sensors Segmentation

Type (Contact, Non-Contact)

Non-contact segment is poised to hold more than 80% industrial sensors market share by 2036. This can be impelled by the intensive use of non-contact sensors in different procedures like perceiving or quantifying variables including position, velocity, pressure, temperature, humidity, and distance.

According to research from the National Library of Medicine, Doppler-based radio-frequency (RF) non-contact vital signs (NCVS) monitoring systems are particularly appealing for long-term vital sign monitoring because they don't involve wearable technology, wires, electrodes, or contact-based sensors, which may mean that subjects are unaware of the widespread monitoring.

Sensor Type (Level Sensors, Temperature Sensors, Flow Sensors, Gas Sensors, Position Sensors, Pressure Sensors, Force Sensors, Humidity & Moisture Sensors, Image Sensors)

By 2036, level sensor segment is expected to dominate over 28% industrial sensors market share owing to the wide adoption of automated equipment and techniques in industrial manufacturing globally.

For instance, in the year 2023, there were over 15 billion Internet of Things (IoTs) that are being used across the world, increasing by over 1 Billion from the year 2022. During the industrial revolution, the growth of the steam engine and water-powered mills converted production and made it feasible to generate items on a far bigger scale.

Application (Energy & Power, Oil & Gas, Mining, Chemical, Manufacturing, Pharmaceuticals)

In industrial sensors market, manufacturing segment is predicted to dominate around 39% revenue share by the end of 2036 due to the increasing expansion of manufacturing industries globally. Moreover, manufacturing is still expanding worldwide. The manufacturing sector currently comprises about 14% of employment and about 16% of the global GDP.
