Smart Sensor Market is expected to reach $81.99 billion by 2024, with a CAGR of 18.9% during the forecast period of 2017 to 2024. Image Sensors occupied the largest revenue share in the global smart sensor market.

Smart sensors or intelligent sensors are the sensors that produce an electrical output when combined with interfacing electronic circuits. Smart sensors are a cost effective solution that provides multi-sensing features. They have a wide application in industrial monitoring and geological mapping, along with certain other applications such as consumer electronics, medical, automotive, security & defence, and entertainment. These sensors communicate with the user by converting the analog data into digital representations. The advent of smart sensors has helped in the efficient functioning and acceptance of IoT. The main advantage of such sensors is the plethora of information that can be collected by reducing the downtime and improving the quality. The current trend of smart gadgets, smart cities, smart parking and smart homes are propelling the use of smart sensors and offering humongous opportunities to the key market players.

Market Determinants

The increasing number of initiatives being taken up by the government authorities is majorly driving the growth of global smart sensor market. Government of several nations is investing heavily in the concept of smart technologies, which is fuelling the market growth. In addition, the smart sensor technology has proved to be an effective solution in reducing the carbon emission levels and thus overcoming the environmental challenges. This has increased the scope of these sensors in the industrial sector, where power plant industries are adopting this technology at an alarming rate. Moreover, the surging trend of miniaturization adopted by various manufacturers is also contributing in the growth of smart sensors market. Such sensors are also witnessing a high acceptance rate in the connected technologies as well. This is expected to offer various opportunities during the forecast period. However, privacy concerns, complex structure of sensors, and high cost of deployment are anticipated to hamper the market growth.
