DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/3s7xzh/north_america)
has announced the addition of the "North
America Pressure Sensor Market by Type (Piezoresistive, Capacitive,
Electromagnetic, Others), by Application (Automotive, Petrochemical and
Oil Gas, Consumer Electronics, Medical, Others), by Geography -
Analysis and Forecast to 2019" report to their offering.
A pressure sensor is a device used to measure the pressure of liquids or
gasses in a container. The pressure is important to measure to stop the
overflow of liquids and gasses in a container and to avoid the explosion
or for proper functionality of machine. It works as a transducer, which
converts pressure into measureable form.
The North America pressure sensor market is segmented by type, which
includes piezoresistive, capacitive, electromagnetic, optical, resonant
solid state, and others. Pizoresistive pressure sensor segment holds the
largest market share, followed by capacitive pressure sensor segment
with 29.8% in 2014. Capacitive pressure sensor is suitable for the
medical industry as it is small in size and consumes low power, which is
driving its market. It is used for pressure measurement of small blood
vessels. Small size help capacitive pressure sensor to be inserted into
the vessels through string for pressure measurement.
Diseases such as congestive heart failure and abdominal aortas aneurysm
are the major cardiovascular diseases affecting people. Different
systems are developed for treatment of such diseases, in which pressure
sensor is used. Capacitive pressure sensor is used in an implantable
pressure monitoring system for blood pressure monitoring. In such
applications, power consumption becomes an additional issue and these
capacitive devices offer a clear advantage over piezoresistive ones.
Other potential applications of capacitive pressure sensor include
intraocular pressure monitoring for the treatment of glaucoma (a serious
disease characterized by an increased pressure in the eye that may
result in blindness), intracranial pressure monitoring for the treatment
of patients with head trauma, and monitoring of neurological patients.
Piezoresistive pressure sensor is used household appliances and
automotive for various applications, such as washing machines,
dishwashers, vacuum cleaners, oil pressure, air pressure detection, and
