Current Sensor Market 2020–By Identifying the Key Market Segments Poised for Strong Growth in Future 2023

Top Drivers and Key Barriers

The global current sensor market value in 2017 was USD 2.12 billion, and it is expected to touch a valuation of USD 3.71 billion by 2024, suggests Market Research Future (MRFR).

Current sensor market size is expected to mushroom exponentially in the coming years, on account of strong demand for these sensors in multiple application areas like energy, battery-operated devices, consumer electronics, telecommunication, renewable energy, and industrial applications. The current sensors have gained traction in instrumentation and power systems since these are used for improving and monitoring the performance of the system.

The current that is delivered to the load needs to be measured, which is an important aspect of power applications as this helps increase the overall efficiency. Current sensors are also used for avoiding risks like overcurrent in devices. Some additional factors favoring the market include rapidly expanding the internet of things (IoT) sector, rising industrialization in developing countries like India, and advancements in automotive electronics. Also, the current sensor market is observing advancements in products including hall effect sensors.

The hall effect sensor is increasingly being used in various applications, given their advantages like very low power consumption that helps bring down the current consumption. Besides, hall effect sensors are extremely ideal to be used in harsh environments and are also highly reliable. Moreover, their capabilities, including pre-programmable electric angles and outputs are accelerating their adoption, mostly in applications that require fully integrated and programmable sensors.

Key Developments

March 2019, Allegro MicroSystems developed a Hall effect current sensor IC named ‘ACS70310’ with the ability to sense current with accuracy. These sensors are ideally used for hybrid and electric vehicle inverters to increase the functional safety and reliability.

April 2019, Allegro MicroSystems launched an energy-efficient automotive-specific Hall effect sensor IC, namely AEC-Q100 for electric vehicle chargers, DC-DC converters, and industrial motors.

October 2019 Given the worldwide need to monitor water consumption in agriculture, a team of researchers from the University of Connecticut has developed a soil moisture sensor. This sensor is more affordable than the existing ones, in addition to being compact enough to insert into the soil easily.
