COVID-19 to have Temporary Impact on the Global Market

The sensor market has acquired enormous traction around the world, owing primarily to the massive popularity that Sensors have earned in recent years. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has stymied market expansion, bringing the entire world to a halt. With the pandemic causing massive revenue losses to end-use industries as healthcare, automotive, electronics, and others, sensor prices skyrocketed, and demand fell.

However, as lockdown restrictions are gradually eased, the sensor business is steadily ramping up again. Innovative industry companies began aggressively looking for expanding application areas for sensors in COVID 19 monitoring and tracking systems. For example, researchers at the University of California recently reported the invention of a wearable sensor that can detect if a user is developing COVID-19 even if no symptoms are evident. Such novel research is proving to be beneficial in increasing Sensor market share. Simultaneously, the gradually rising demand for pharma product packaging and healthcare items to combat SARS-CoV-2 could be beneficial to the Sensor industry in the following years. Furthermore, it is projected that product demand in end-use sectors will increase as a result of the lifting of the lockdown in a number of nations.
