Global Temperature Sensor Market 2016-2020

Published: May 2016
No. of Pages: 52

A temperature sensor is a device used to measure the degree of heat of an object by using electrical signals. The sensors are made of electrical conducting materials. When electric voltage is passed through the conductor, the conducting material generates some amount of resistance, which varies with the change in the temperature of the conductor. The change in temperature corresponds to the resistance. This change is recorded and converted into a temperature reading.

Temperature sensors are mostly of two types: contact and contactless. Contact temperature sensors include thermocouples, thermistors, and resistance temperature detectors, while contactless temperature sensors include infrared sensors.

The analysts forecast global temperature sensor market to grow at a CAGR of 4.87% during the period 2016-2020.
