Need for Accuracy, Instrument Efficiency, and Safety Drives Smart Sensors Market Growth

Smart sensors are typically characterized by on-board intelligence and the ability to communicate via a digital network.  With the emergence of both Internet of Things (IoT) and Industrial IoT, new sensors and associated applications are emerging every day.  Increasingly, these sensors are “smart,” a requirement for IoT sensors as well as for many industrial applications.

This report focuses on smart sensors of many types, including proximity, photoelectric, pressure, temperature, flow, level, vibration, position, and force.  The report is also further segmented into sensor interface types, including CANopen, Ethernet/IP, Foundation Fieldbus, HART, IO-Link, Modbus, Profibus PA, and PROFINET.

Currently the smart sensors market is dominated by field instrumentation and the process industries.  The major applications for smart sensors vary across industries.  The chemical, oil & gas, and nuclear power generation industries need sensors to manage highly critical processes.  The electric power industry also requires sensors to manage geographically large power transmission and distribution systems.  In these types of critical infrastructures, standards have been developed to address communication, interoperability, reliability, calibration, security, and accuracy for smart sensors.

Smart Sensors Strategic Issues

Smart Sensors Market TrendsThe adoption of wireless field-mounted sensors is likely to affect the dynamics of the smart sensors market, especially for pressure transmitters, flowmeters, and other field-mounted sensors.  The report addresses key questions, such as: 

  • What role will Industrial IoT and device intelligence play in furthering market growth?
  • Which emerging and developed economies are likely to drive growth?
  • How will web-enabled procurement impact the total market?
