Humidity Sensors Market to Surpass USD 1357.27 Million until 2026

Increasing usage of moisture-sensitive sensors in industries such as Healthcare, Food & Beverages is expected to drive the growth of the Global Humidity Sensors Market.


According to TechSci Research report, Global Humidity Sensors Market, By Product (Relative {Capacitive & Resistive} and Absolute {Solid Moisture Sensors & Mirror-Based Dew/frost}), By Type (Digital & Analog), By Application (Automotive, Industrial, Healthcare, Residential, Agriculture and Others), By Region, Competition, Forecast & Opportunities, 2016-2026, the Global Humidity Sensors Market is forecast to grow at a rate of 6.26% to reach USD1357.27 million by 2026. Growth in the market can be attributed to the increasing number of humidity sensors being used in industries such as healthcare, food & beverage and textiles. Humidity sensor, also known as hygrometer, is used to sense, measure and report both air temperature and moisture. The humidity sensors find a wide range of applications in cars, offices, museums, humidors, greenhouses, and industrial spaces. In agriculture sector, the wireless humidity sensors are used for monitoring the climate in greenhouse farming. Humidity sensors are widely used in medical devices to track patient health metrics from afar, and in the post-pandemic period sensor manufacturers are taking advantage of these opportunities to streamline their production lines. All these applications have resulted in a positive impact on the Global Humidity Sensors Market.

The Global Humidity Sensors Market is segmented based on product, type, application and region. In terms of product, the market can be segregated into Relative and Absolute. The relative product dominated the market in 2020. Relative Humidity Sensors are most commonly used because they are generally simpler and thus cheaper and extensively applied in applications involving indoor air quality and human comfort issues. The Relative product is further bifurcated into Resistive and Capacitive. Moreover, the Absolute Humidity Sensors are mostly used for traceable purposes (trace moisture measurement) as primary sensors. Absolute Humidity Sensors are further divided into Solid Moisture and Mirror-Based Dew/frost sensors.


Based on type, the market is segmented into Digital and Analog. The Digital Sensors dominated the Humidity Sensors Market in 2020 as they use modern technology and are capable of doing more than one job. They have a memory mode that allows them to record humidity levels and temperatures over time and are more accurate. However, analog humidity sensors are expected to show more growth in future due to their capability to provide continuous visibility to current conditions through accurate measurements. If the analog sensor is integrated with a good remote telemetry unit (RTU), it is easy to observe the monitored value anywhere in real time.


In the Global Humidity Sensors Market, APAC is the largest contributor withholding the major market share in 2020. China is estimated to be the largest contributing country in the region for the forecast period. Increasing sales of vehicles in the region, particularly in China and India, is one of the major reasons for the large market of Humidity sensors in the region, as humidity sensors find various applications in automobiles such as in the automatic air conditioning system, preventing the windows from misting up, etc.  Moreover, increasing demand for humidity sensors in hotels, hospitals, buildings, and schools is expected to contribute to the growth of humidity sensors market in the APAC region.


Sensirion AG, Honeywell International Inc., Texas Instruments, Robert Bosch GmbH, TE Connectivity, General Electric Company, Amphenol Advanced Sensors, Omron Corporation, Infineon Technologies AG, B + B Thermo-Technik GmbH, etc. are among the leading players operating in the Global Humidity Sensors Market. Companies operating in the market are using organic strategies, partnerships and collaborations to boost their shares in the Global Humidity Sensors Market. Significant players in the market are concentrating on accomplishing ideal operational expenses, upgrading the system efficiency, enhancing precision in responses, boosting productivity with high funding in R&D, and merging with small players to support in the competitive Global Humidity Sensors Market.
