The pressure sensor market for the optical technology is expected to grow at a high CAGR between 2017 and 2023 driven by the growing adoption of optical technology over other technologies. In places that are remote or experience very high temperature, optical pressure sensors are used for various applications. In applications where other technologies can fail due to electromagnetic interference, optical pressure sensors can work very well due to their immunity to interference. These sensors also work well in the presence of chemicals or explosive materials.

Among various applications, automotive held the largest share of the overall pressure sensor market in 2016 owing to the increased use of pressure sensors in oil pressure monitoring, fuel pressure monitoring, nitrous pressure monitoring, transmission pressure monitoring, and tire pressure monitoring.

Asia Pacific (APAC) is expected to hold the largest share of the pressure sensor market during the forecast period. The pressure sensor market in countries such as China, India, Japan, and South Korea is expected to grow at the highest CAGR due to the increasing deployment of automated storage and retrieval systems (ASRS) and rising awareness about the advantages of automated systems.

The key restraining factor for the growth of the pressure sensor market is the intense pricing pressure. The consumers of pressure sensors are key players in applications such as utilities, oil & gas, consumer electronics, automotive, oil & gas, aviation, marine, medical, industrial, and others. The major demand for pressure sensors is from the automotive and medical applications. While both these industries are growing rapidly, they face a stiff price competition in the market. Therefore, the players in these applications demand low-cost pressure sensors to bring down the price of the final product.

Key market players such as Honeywell (US), ABB (Switzerland), NXP Semiconductors (Netherland), Infineon Technologies (Germany), Emerson Electric (US), General Electric (US), Siemens (Germany), STMicroelectronics (Switzerland), Robert Bosch (Germany), TE Connectivity (Switzerland), Schneider Electric (France), Denso (Japan), Continental (Germany), Endress+Hauser (Switzerland), SSI Technologies (US), and Delphi (UK) focus on strategies such as product launches and developments, agreements, mergers and acquisitions, partnerships, and collaborations to enhance their product offerings and expand their business.
