Global Humidity Sensor Market to Grow Progressively During 2019-2026.Download Sample Reports Overview
According to a study conducted by Research Dive, the globalhumidity sensormarket forecast size is expected to reach$1,551.9million by the end of 2026, registering 7.5% CAGR over the forecast period.
Humidity sensor is a device used for detecting environmental humidity and is also called as hygrometer. This device plays a vital role in sensing, measuring, and recording the moisture & temperature of surrounding air. These sensors are made up of two metal plates. In between these two plates, there is a non-conductive polymer film that senses the moisture from the air and alters the existing voltage. These alterations in voltage are then converted to appropriate digital readings.
The humidity sensors have limited long term stability and the sensors cannot work efficiently under 0°C In addition, the limited measurement range is another key factor that is expected to hamper the growth of the global humidity sensors market during the forecasted period.
The global humidity sensormarket is divided on the basis of type into absolute humidity sensor and relative humidity sensors among others. Among these, the relative humidity sensor segment is anticipated to boost the global humidity sensormarket,which is anticipatedto reach $577.3million by 2026, growing at CAGR of 8.3% during the forecasted period. The growing necessity for relative humidity sensors is majorly due to the ability of the sensors to improve air quality and control moisture levels in the air.This is the key growth factor that is anticipated to drive the relative humidity sensor segment in the globalhumidity sensor market. However, absolute humidity sensor segment held the highest market value in the year 2018 accounting for $522.1million and is expected to reach $897.0million by 2026 growing ata CAGR of 7.0% during the projected years.
The global humidity sensor market is divided into automotive, industrial, food &beverages, agriculture, pharmaceutical &healthcare, building automation &aomesticappliances, environmental and other. The automotive segment led the global humidity sensor market end-user segment accounting for $160.1 million in 2018 and is expected to reach $277.8 million and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 7.1% during the forecasted period. In addition, the industrial segment is projected to dominate the end-user segment during the forecasted years accounting for $242.1 million by 2026 growing at a CAGR of 7.9%. Humidity sensor solutions are being usedto monitor the ambient moisture widely in various industries such as mining, oil & gas, paper, power & energy,and textile, among other industries.
The global humidity sensor market has been classified regionally into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. The North America regionheld the largest market value in 2018 accounting for $244.5million and is projected to reach $419.0million by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 7.0% during the forecast period. Asia-Pacific region is expected to dominate the humidity sensor market; this growth is majorly due to the growing automotive end-user industries in the developing and developed nations. Asia-Pacific region accounted for $221.0million in 2018 and is expected to reach $405.0million by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 7.9 during the forecast period.
