A Frost & Sullivan research service titled “Strategic Analysis of the Sensors Market in Europe” provides an analysis of 18 types of sensors and transmitters. Various techniques under each sensor type have also been mentioned.
In this research, Frost & Sullivan’s analysts examine the following applications: oil and gas, chemical and petrochemical, water and wastewater, power, cement, emergency services, pulp and paper, automotive, consumer electronics, medical, renewable energy and many more.
Climate change and environment consciousness have become the buzzwords in all regions, including Europe. Consequently, sensors that can help users achieve greater energy efficiency are likely to be more popular than sensors used in other applications, according to the research.
In the current economic scenario, the rising costs of energy are making a robust case for sensors that promote energy savings, says Frost & Sullivan. Wireless sensors, which help save on operation and maintenance costs and thereby, lower the total cost of ownership are also expected to be in huge demand.
Elimination of battery or using rechargeable battery seemed to be the main focus of sensor manufacturers, according to the analyst of this research. Battery-less sensors or sensor products that can work on rechargeable batteries or sensors that can work by harvesting energy are expected to find considerable uptake.
