Humidity sensor or hygrometer detects moisture from its surrounding and converts it into small electrical pulses which are recorded, displayed and stored in the device to trigger an alarm when the humidity is above a certain level. The sensor comprises of two metallic plates with a non-conductive polymer film between them. It registers humidity through the change in voltage between these plates.

The market is primarily driven by its requisite need in moisture sensitive industries such as - printing, textile, cement, food processing, mining, and pharmaceutical among others. They have several advantages over conventional silicon sensors such as, low power requirements, easy implementation, improved efficiency, and higher precision. However, its higher cost could prove to be a restraining factor; though, increase in demand by various industries and investments on research & development by key players in the market could facilitate its cost reduction and boost the overall market.

Comparison between properties of humidity sensor and conventional sensor

PropertiesHumidity SensorConventional Sensor
Power ConsumptionLow power consumption owing to the presence of electronic componentsHigh power consumption
SizeThey are comparatively smaller in size and hence are useful in more applications than conventional sensorsLarger in size hence require more space for installation
EfficiencyHumidity sensors are more efficient due to less power lossPoor efficiency
PrecisionThese sensors have better precision as they are more advanced thereafter they are preferred over conventional sensors.Less precise
