Key Market Trends

Thermocouple Sensors Expected to Exhibit Maximum Adoption

The aerospace and defense industry has embraced digital transformation rapidly, which has stimulated the adoption of temperature sensors in the industry, due to the adoption of portable electronic devices and embedded electronics systems in the industry. These trends have significantly contributed to the increase in RF emissions, causing interference or data corruption.

  • Thermocouple sensors are reliable and robust in nature and provide a fast temperature sensing solution, which is a preferred solution in many aerospace, defense, and security applications. These high-reliability sensors are suitable for harsh environments such as harsh temperatures, RFI, EMI, Vibration, and Lightning, and many more.
  • Research and development activities in the field of temperature sensors are expected to increase the awareness about the thermocouple temperature sensor, which will subsequently increase its demand in industrial applications, such as aerospace and defense applications. For instance, a team of researchers at the University of Oxford, Delft University, and IBM Zurich have successfully demonstrated the usage of graphene to build sensitive and self-powering temperature sensors. The findings pave the way for the design of highly sensitive thermocouples, which could be integrated into nanodevices and even living cells.

North America Expected to Dominate the Market

North America emerges as the priority choice for the market vendors in the market studied, as the region is highly benefitted by the presence of the critical infrastructure necessary for the solution. Also, the presence of temperature sensor manufacturers and system integrators in the region is expected to drive the growth in the market.

  • In May 2020, Pentagon security deployed thermal cameras on tripods to check temperatures at the building’s Visitor Center since April. The REF worked with the Army’s C5ISR Center lab and Program Executive Officer, to convert infrared targeting sensors into hands-off thermometers to combat the COVID-19 coronavirus. The Pentagon Force Protection Agency wants to set up sensors at other points around the massive headquarters, including the entrance to the Washington Metro subway system.
  • Also, in March 2020, Meggitt PLC, a provider of high-performance components and subsystems for the aerospace and defense, completed a five-year contract extension with GE Aviation for the supply of valves, sensors, and heat exchangers across a range of engine programs. The partnership is expected to act as a catalyst for the adoption of temperature sensors in the aerospace and defense industry in the region.
