European Sensor Market Research

May 25, 2010

Frost & Sullivan report find that sensors that aid in energy savings will experience the highest uptake in the European market.

DUBLIN, Ireland --(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Research and Markets has announced the addition of Frost & Sullivan's new report "Strategic Analysis of the Sensors Market in Europe" to their offering.

"Strategic Analysis of the Sensors Market in Europe"
This research service discusses the outlook for sensors market in Europe. This 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 expert analysts thoroughly 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. Market Overview Sensors that Aid in Energy Savings to Find the Highest Uptake in the European Market 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. In the current economic scenario, the rising costs of energy are making a robust case for sensors that promote energy savings.

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, says 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.

Sensor manufacturers will be looking to deal with the post-downturn economic climate by finding new growth markets and applications, especially for the mature segments. The market, particularly the micro-electro mechanical systems (MEMS) accelerometer segment, is also likely to get a boost with favourable regulations and mandates. The manufacturers can extend this advantage by creating considerable consumer awareness about new and emerging technologies such as wireless and smart sensors. Sophisticated technologies, however, cost almost twice as much as traditional technologies, which deters end users. Innovation and providing value-added features are considered crucial elements to overcome price pressure, notes the analyst.
