Humidity Sensor Market Outlook - 2027

The global humidity sensor market size is expected to reach from $4.0 billion in 2019 and projected to grow $11.85 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 14.2% from 2020 to 2027. 

Humidity is one of the prominent physical quantities used in a wide range of commercial and industrial applications, including those associated with building ventilation control, environmental chambers for the testing of electronics, clean rooms in the semiconductor & automotive industries, industrial drying, and process monitoring in the chemicals, electronics, food/beverage, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, and biomedical analysis industries.


A humidity sensor is an electronic component that senses, measures, and reports water vapor and air temperature. The humidity sensor functions by carefully monitoring environmental conditions and alerting the user of any alarming conditions. It detects any change in the electrical currents or temperature in the air. Accuracy, linearity, reliability, repeatability, and response time of humidity sensors are some of the important parameters considered for its selection. 

Factors such as increase in demand for small-sized humidity sensor, surge in installation of personal weather stations, and developments in the automotive sector drive global humidity sensor market growth. However, the need to improve technical specifications of humidity sensor is expected to hamper the market growth to a certain extent. Furthermore, development and adoption of vertical farming and precise farming is expected to offer lucrative opportunities for the humidity sensor market growth globally.
