The global non-optical pressure sensor market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.02% to reach a value of US$3.185 billion by 2027, from US$2.417 billion in 2020.

Pressure sensors are referred to as devices that are equipped with pressure-sensing elements for the measurement of pressure and finally convert the value into an electronic signal in the form of output. The market is projected to hold strong growth prospects owing to the immense applications of pressure sensors across varied end-use industries. For example, in HVAC systems, pressure systems are utilized for monitoring the condition of air filters. As filters clog with particulates, the differential pressure across the filter rises and this can be detected. The improved GPS location is offered by the use of pressure sensors. An attitude can be measured through the detection of barometric pressure due to an association between the barometric pressure and altitude in the atmosphere. Furthermore, pressure sensors are utilized in wearables for the monitoring of patients and the elderly in assisted living environments. In the case of an event, like a fall, the sensors bring it to the attention of medical staff or a family member. The mechanism lies in the measurement of small changes in air pressure by the pressure sensor.

Growing geriatric population

It has been observed that pressure sensors are placed in automated drug delivery systems to deliver the proper dosage to patients. Hence, the market is projected to grow at a significant pace over the next five years. The major factors supporting the growth of the utilization of drug delivery systems include a growing number of chronic diseases like diabetes and respiratory diseases. In addition, the growing geriatric population suffering from age-associated diseases is further propelling the market demand. It has been predicted by the National Institutes of Health that the diabetes prevalence in America is predicted to rise by 54%, affecting over 54.9 million Americans between 2015-2030. Also, annual deaths due to diabetes are predicted to surge by 38% to 385,800. The total annual medical and societal costs linked to diabetes are predicted to rise by around 53% to over USD622 billion by the end of 2030.

Increased technological advancements

Although, significant efforts are being made toward effective diabetes management. The emergence of advanced insulin delivery systems with automated dispensing systems is providing relief for many patients suffering from this disease. According to the USFDA news release in December 2019, the organization announced the authorization of the first interoperable automated glycemic controller device that is capable of automatically adjusting insulin delivery to a diabetic patient. The automated insulin dosing (AID) system consists of a pump, a continuous glucose monitor (CGM), and software for controlling the system of compatible devices. With automated dispensing devices increasingly present in various healthcare organizations, the market is poised to grow during the forecast period. In addition, the shift to direct patient care, changes in healthcare systems, and cost-reduction pressures is further offering high growth prospects for automated drug delivery systems to proliferate, further contributing to surging the market growth during the course of the forecast period. The American Society of Health-System Pharmacists approved the use of automated drug dispensing system distribution as this has contributed to releasing pharmacists from labor-intensive drug distribution functions.

Companies offering pressure sensors that fulfill the requirements of the various end-user industries are driving the market growth during the forecast period.

STS Sensor Technik Sirnach AG offers pressure sensors for a range of industries.

These include onshore, offshore, and subsea applications. The sensors are explosion-proof and have intrinsically safe certifications. The products are designed to offer the required precision and long-term stability in challenging situations.

COVID-19 Impact on the Non-Optical Pressure Sensor Market

The non-optical pressure sensor market witnessed a significant impact due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The end-user industries experience a slight decline in 2020 owing to the shutting down of manufacturing operations due to labour shortages, work-from-home, and lockdown initiatives. Although many industrial activities recovered in the latter half of the year, there was still a gap in the supply chain due to delays in shipment and deliveries. Besides, the manufacturing units of sensors, particularly pressure sensors, require the technicians to be physically present on the site. Many modernization activities were also put on hold in the wake of COVID-19.
