Infrared sensors are capable of measuring the temperature of moving objects. This makes them suitable for applications where the target object is in motion, such as monitoring conveyors, rotating machinery, or inspecting fast-moving production lines. They often come in handheld or fixed-mount configurations, allowing users to measure temperatures quickly and conveniently without complex setups or calibration procedures.

By Application Analysis

Based on application, the market is fragmented into chemical, oil & gas, energy & power, healthcare, food & beverages, consumer electronics, automotive, aerospace & defense, metals & mining, and others. In 2022, the consumer electronics segment witnessed the largest revenue share in the market. Temperature sensors are used in laptops and computers to monitor the temperature of central processing units (CPUs), graphics processing units (GPUs), and other components. These sensors provide real-time temperature data, allowing the system to adjust fan speeds or initiate cooling efforts to prevent overheating and potential damage to internal components. Temperature sensors are essential components in smartphones and tablets. They help monitor the device's internal temperature and contribute to optimizing performance and battery life. Additionally, temperature sensors play a role in preventing devices from overheating during resource-intensive tasks, such as gaming or video streaming.

Temperature Sensor Market Share and Industry Analysis Report 2022

By Type Analysis

On the basis of type, the market is segmented into non-contact and contact. Non-contact sensors provide rapid temperature measurements, often in milliseconds. This quick response time is crucial in applications where real-time data is essential, such as industrial manufacturing processes, quality control, or research environments. Modern non-contact temperature sensors offer high accuracy and precision, making them suitable for applications that demand tight control over temperature variables. This includes applications in research, laboratories, and industries where temperature directly affects product quality.

By Contact Analysis

Under contact type, the market is further classified into bimetallic temperature sensor, thermistor, resistive temperature detector, thermocouple, and others. In 2022, the thermocouple segment registered the highest revenue share in the market. Thermocouples provide a rapid response to changes in temperature. Their small mass and direct contact with the measurement surface allow for quick detection of temperature variations, making them suitable for real-time monitoring applications. Thermocouples are known for their robust construction, making them durable and capable of withstanding harsh environmental conditions. They are often used in industrial settings, including manufacturing, chemical processing, and metalworking.
