- The global sales of Electric Vehicles crossed the 1400 thousand mark in 2018. Also, in the United States, EVs sales have shown more than 70% growth from the previous year in 2018, stated by EV-Volumes.com. The huge demand for automotive vehicles and its rapid developments augmenting the capacitive pressure sensor market.
North-America Region to Dominate the Market
- North America is expected to dominate the capacitive pressure sensor market due to the stable industrial structure across the domains. The growing research and development in the region drive the region to dominate in innovations and its commercialization.
- Medical applications of the ceramic capacitive sensors have shown significant growth over the year as innovation on packaging creates a eutectic die bond over the ceramic substrate and offers hermetic seal even in the presence of harsh fluids. Respirators, ventilators, vital sign monitors, and air flow applications are a few major medical end-user applications, which deal with the high-value stakes incorporated with equipment accuracy.
- New research developments are being carried out by many tech companies and launching their products into the market for monitoring blood pressure. For instance, tech giant Apple Inc. filed a patent application for blood pressure monitoring software framework based on a smartphone app and wearable devices for solving data reliability for the wearable.
- The region also leads in aerospace and defense industry. The United States is the leading country for defense spendings. According to SIPRI, in 2018, the country spent 3.2% of its GDP on military expenditure. Also, NASA has announced its ten-year plan of next projects and focus on expansion and exploration throughout the solar system.
- These massive investments by the organizations in the regions are driving the market for a capacitive pressure sensor and its applications.
With the declining product cost of capacitive pressure sensors, the rise in the entry of the players offering the product is observed. Additionally, the lack of differentiation in the product offerings made the vendors for adopting competitive pricing strategies. Hence, due to the presence of many players, the market trend is towards fragmentation.
- May 2019 - Bourns, Inc., a manufacturer, and supplier of electronic components introduced its new model BPS140 pressure sensors. They feature ceramic port to enhance compatibility with certain harsh media. The comapny claims that it is a robust device with a structure that is capable of handling high-pressure ranges (15 to 500 PSI) even at high temperatures.
- Mar 2019 - Turck launched a new PS+ series of pressure sensors with capacitive touch pads. The robust sensors are the first products of a modular fluid sensor series that enables customers to provide reliable measuring instruments with intuitive operation. The PS+ Series is designed for pressure ranges up to 600 bar and is available with proven ceramic measuring cells (PS310).
