Humidity sensor or hygrometer detects moisture from its surrounding and converts it into small electrical pulses which are recorded, displayed and stored in the device to trigger an alarm when the humidity is above a certain level. The sensor comprises of two metallic plates with a non-conductive polymer film between them. It registers humidity through the change in voltage between these plates.
The humidity sensors offer more advantages than conventional sensors due to low power consumption for their operation, the convenience of installation. It also enhances the transducer operation that includes structure design, sensing elements, fabrication technologies, and the principle of mechanism. However, the increased competition among market players has led to a decrease in market prices of humidity sensors and are considered a major hindrance to the market.
North America and Europe are presumed to have significant growth in the humidity sensor market. This region is already acquainted with advanced infrastructure in the industrial sector. The need for energy efficient sensors for providing better analysis of the moisture control is surging, expected to be a propelling factor for the humidity sensors market. Asia Pacific is also anticipated to be the fastest growing region in the humidity sensor market over the forecast period. India, Japan, and China are the leading countries in the humidity sensor market. This is attributed to the increasing awareness among the farmers for the production of better quality crops in their fields is driving the demand for humidity sensors in agricultural sector.
The global Humidity Sensor market is valued at 55000 million US$ in 2018 is expected to reach 206700 million US$ by the end of 2025, growing at a CAGR of 18.0% during 2019-2025.
