In the modern world, the need for pressure sensors is evolving and continuously growing. Today's pressure sensors mainly utilize digital technology; which means they are better in efficiency and sensing performance. Pressure sensors have a significant place in different industry verticals. The major applications of pressure sensors are in petrochemical industry, automotive industry, consumer electronics industry, process industries, and healthcare. The largest application segment for pressure sensors is the automotive segment due to their (automotives') use in tyre pressure monitoring systems, engine management, and automatic transmission. The petrochemical and oil and gas segment follows as the second largest application segment for pressure sensors. In the medical industry, pressure sensors are used as low-cost disposable devices for catheters employed in surgical operations. The demand for reliable, high performance and low cost sensors is increasing, leading to the development of new technologies like the Micro Technology and Nano Technology offering opportunities like miniaturization, low power consumption, mass production, etc. MEMS pressure sensors have not been used much in the consumer electronics and mobile devices until now. Their major applications include HVAC sector, level measurements and various industrial processes and control applications.
Pressure sensors can vary drastically in technology, design, performance, application suitability and cost. A conservative estimate would be that there may be over 50 technologies and at least 300 companies making pressure sensors worldwide.
