Changes in the Forecast for Pressure Sensors?

Welcome to All Sensors “Put the Pressure on Us” blog. This blog brings out pressure sensor aspects in a variety of applications inspired by headlines, consumer and industry requirements, market research, government activities, and you.

Changes in the Forecast for Pressure Sensors?

Similar to many other products, instead of growing in 2020, due to the impact of the COVID 19 pandemic, the pressure sensor market experienced a slight drop according to a recent market report. But recovery is in the forecast.  The global MEMS pressure sensor market is expected to grow at US$2.2 billion in 2026 having a 4% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2019-2026 with the medical portion growing at the same CAGR.

In addition to their extensive use in automobiles, smartphones and industrial applications, the report acknowledges that the miniaturization of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) pressure sensors has allowed their use in invasive medical applications like blood pressure monitoring. Also, “Other niche medical markets like catheters, inflating device monitoring for cardiovascular applications that are invasive and require high accuracy, low-cost sensors, are fully using the advantages of MEMS technologies and could foster broader use in the medical market.”

The report states that as a mature technology, MEMS pressure sensors currently dominate the low-pressure market segment – under 10 bars (145 psi) – with piezoresistive technology continuing to be the main MEMS technology for the next five years. All Sensors piezoresistive MEMS pressure sensors are poised to take advantage of broader use in medical applications, especially in the ultra-low pressure from 0.1-inch H2O (0.0036 psi) full scale up to the 25-inch H2O (0.9 psi) area.

Pressure Sensors in Medical Applications

Welcome to All Sensors “Put the Pressure on Us” blog. This blog brings out pressure sensor aspects in a variety of applications inspired by headlines, consumer and industry requirements, market research, government activities, and you.

Pressure Sensors in Medical Applications

According to a recent market report from Mordor Intelligence, a market intelligence and advisory service, the medical sensors market was valued at USD 12.36 billion in 2019 and is expected to reach a value of USD 20.72 billion by 2025, increasing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.07% over the forecast period (2020 – 2025). The report identifies the significant role that pressure sensors play in medical sensor market. Specific pressure sensor applications include:

  • respiratory breathing circuits (nebulizers, spirometers, patient monitoring)
  • flow/pressure control (therapeutic hospital beds)
  • gas collection (hospital gas supply, oxygen concentrators)
  • sampling/gas flow (blood analysis, gas chromatography, analytical instrument sampling systems)

A specific example of a home health system is continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) respiratory therapy equipment that can use high sensitivity and accurate pressure sensors.

Also, to avoid poor inhaler techniques that prevent patients from receiving their full therapeutic benefits when using inhalers, some medical equipment manufacturers use pressure sensors in inhalers so individuals can receive proper asthma treatment.

All Sensors offers different types of pressure sensors for many medical applications.

Pressure Sensors and the IoT

Welcome to All Sensors “Put the Pressure on Us” blog. This blog brings out pressure sensor aspects in a variety of applications inspired by headlines, consumer and industry requirements, market research, government activities, and you.

Pressure Sensors and the IoT

The recently published “The Internet of Things (IoT) Sensors Market” report states, “In an Internet of Things ecosystem, two things are very important, the Internet and physical devices like sensors and actuators.” Based on the importance of the sensors, the report projects that the IoT sensors market will reach US$ 23.82 Billion by 2024, at a CAGR of 34.1% between 2018 and 2024.

The analysis includes pressure, temperature, humidity, magnetometer, gyroscope, accelerometer, image and inertial sensors. Segmented into wired and wireless pieces, the IoT sensor market report analyzes Consumer, Commercial, and Industrial market segments.

All Sensors' MEMS Pressure Sensors

Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) pressure sensors deliver the size, performance, power consumption and cost to satisfy many if not most of the IoT pressure sensing requirements. Based on the variety of measurements that they address, it should not surprise anyone that their data will be used in numerous monitoring and control applications – cloud based or otherwise.

Pressure and Gas Chromatography

Welcome to All Sensors “Put the Pressure on Us” blog. This blog brings out pressure sensor aspects in a variety of applications inspired by headlines, consumer and industry requirements, market research, government activities, and you.

Pressure and Gas Chromatography

Gas chromatography uses stationary and mobile phases for separating and analyzing mixtures according to “Chromatography Composition Measurement,” in The Measurement, Instrumentation, and Sensors Handbook. To perform the necessary steps, the typical gas chromatograph has several different aspects. It starts with a pressure regulated carrier gas supply. The carrier gas pressures are typically 34 to 69 kPa (5 to 10 psig) to 138 to 340 kPa (20 to 50 psig) at gas flow rates of 1 mL min-1 or less. If the data system monitors and records the supplied pressures, pressure sensors would also be used.

To measure this range of pressures, All Sensors SPM 401 Series of media isolated sensors would provide a good solution since process control and monitoring systems are target applications.
