The global current sensor market size is expected to reach from $1.65 billion in 2019 to $2.61 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 6.3% from 2020 to 2027. 

Current sensors, also commonly referred to as current transformers or CTs, are devices that measure current running through a wire by using magnetic field to detect the current and generate a proportional output. They are used with both AC and DC current. They are used in various applications such as motor driving circuits and inverter circuits. Current sensors are used in various industries such as automotive, consumer electronics, and telecommunication.

Rise in adoption of power management systems in data centers for improved efficiency & speed with reduced power expenditure fuels the market demand. Current sensors integrated with backup power systems such as inverters and UPS systems enable protection of battery at the stage of charge and offer efficiency, which increases their demand in data centers. Moreover, stringent government regulations in relation to control of data center power consumption is also one of the major factors that propels the current sensor market growth.

The COVID-19 outbreak has currently restrained research & development activities in the electronics & semiconductor industry and has led to shutdown of several manufacturing facilities globally. Shortage or unavailability of raw materials and components, owing to supply chain disruption hinders production capacity of sensor manufacturers. Further, decline in purchase capability among consumers, owing to uncertain economy and decrease in adoption of electric vehicles further hinder the market growth. However, by the end of 2020, the market demand is expected to boost development of autonomous technologies, such as industrial robots and autonomous electric cars, which would propels the market growth in coming years.

The global current sensor market is segmented on the basis of type, current sensing technology, end use, and region. On the basis of type, the market is bifurcated into open loop and closed loop. By current sensing technology, the market is classified into Hall effect, current transformer, flux gate, and Rogowski coil. On the basis of end use, it is divided into automotive, consumer electronics, industrial, telecommunication, and others. Region wise, the market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

Top Impacting Factors

Adoption of industrial robots and increase in trend of hybrid vehicles in the automotive industry drive the current sensor market growth. However, technical issues and high costs associated with current sensors across the globe hamper the market growth. On the contrary, rapid adoption of 5G technology increases demand for closed loop current sensors, which is expected to create lucrative opportunities for the current sensor market.
