Climate Sensors Market Analysis

Climate sensors are deployed to measure external climatic conditions such as temperature, relative humidity, CO2, light, air pressure or wind directions. We have categorized the global climate sensors market within the global semiconductors market. Technavio defines semiconductor manufacturers as the companies that are involved in the production of integrated circuits (ICs) such as memory, logic, analog, and micro components; optoelectronics; sensors; and discrete semiconductors.

Increase in the number of electronic components integrated in automobiles, the demand for automatic climate control and demand for higher convenience and features among the automobile customers are driving the demand for climate sensors. The global climate sensors market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5% during the forecast period.

Based on geography, APAC region dominates the market. The dominance of APAC is driven by the presence of an established electronics manufacturing industry and consumption in addition to a growing automobile market.

The vendors operating in the market face numerous challenges in increasing their sales and improving profitability. Some of those challenges are:

Availability of Multiple Technologies

Climate sensors such as temperature sensors are available in multiple variants such as contact and non-contact and are often integrated with humidity or CO2 sensors. Further, temperature sensors include multiple technologies such as infrared temperature sensors, thermocouples, resistance temperature detectors (RTD), thermistor, fiber optic temperature sensors, and temperature transmitters. Each of the types have their own specific application areas, costs, and are often interchangeably used. The availability of multiple technologies could impact the growth of the market due to increased price pressures and competition among vendors.

Some of the trends that are expected to influence the market during the forecast period are listed below:

Advances in Electric Vehicles

The growing adoption of EVs is increasingly witnessing new opportunities for different stakeholders such as system integrators, vehicle manufacturers, engine manufacturers, and component providers in the global EV market. For instance, Volkswagen planned to launch its all-electric SUV in early 2020, which is expected to support long-range features. Similarly, the production of Honda e Prototype will begin 2019 and will soon be available in the market. The Tesla Model Y with long-range and performance version is expected to be launched in 2020.  Electric vehicles are equipped with multiple climate sensors to across subsystems for temperature monitoring. On board chargers, DC/DC converter, battery management systems, and Inverter/motor control all require temperature monitoring. With increased support from governments across the world, integration of climate sensors in electric vehicles will be a key trend during the forecast period.

Market investment, strategic partnership, and introduction of new products are some of the strategies adopted the companies in the global climate sensors market. Few key vendors in the market include Honeywell Technologies Inc., Senmatic A/S, Emerson Climate, Agrowtek Inc., TE Connectivity, HELLA GmbH & Co. KGaA, Infineon Technologies, and STMicroelectronics Inc.

Following are few of the major developments in the market:

  • In October 2019, HELLA was nominate for the 2020 Automotive News PACE Awards, for its Brake System Sensor and its Rain/Light/Climate Sensor.
  • In May 2019, SpaceX delivered NASA organs on chips, climate sensor to ISS, through its robotic cargo capsule, Dragon.
  • In May 2018, Siemens AG launched new temperature transmitter for various sensor types that function in extreme temperatures up to -5 degrees Celsius.
