Relative Humidity Sensor Market Outlook – 2027 

The global relative humidity sensor market is experiencing significant growth and is expected to grow considerably in the next few years. Relative humidity sensor is a type of sensor that alters moisture present in bulk materials, gases, air, or soil into an electric output signal. This device is also known as a hygrometer, which updates the relative humidity in the air on a regular basis. It detects air temperature as well as air moisture. 

These sensors consist of two metal plates with a non-conductive polymer film in-between them. This film absorbs moisture present in the air, which is responsible for causing minor fluctuations in the voltage between the two plates. Humidity sensors are extensively used in woodworking equipment, textile machineries, and printing & paper equipment for measuring humidity in the air.

The global relative humidity sensor market is segmented on the basis of type, end user, and region. Based on type, the relative humidity sensor market is divided into thermoplastic polymer, ceramic, and lithium chloride film. On the basis of end user, the market is segregated into automotive, pharmaceutical & healthcare, food & beverages, environmental, agriculture, industrial, building automation & domestic appliances, and others. Geographically, the market is analyzed across several regions such as North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Latin America, Middle East & Africa (LAMEA).

Key players operating in the global relative humidity sensor industry include Bourns Inc., Denso Corporation, Freescale Semiconductor Inc., GE Sensing & Inspection Technologies, Custom Sensors & Technologies Inc., Hamamatsu Photonics KK, Hamlin Electronics LP, Hella KGaA Hueck & Co Melexis Microelectronic Integrated Systems N.V, Melexis Inc., Omron Corporation, OSRAM Opto Semiconductors GmbH, Robert Bosch GmbH, Aptina Imaging Corporation, Autoliv Inc., Continental AG, Corrsys-Datron Sensorsystem GmbH, CTS Corporation, BEI Sensors, Kavlico Corporation, Delphi Corporation, Hitachi Automotive Systems, Honeywell Sensing & Control, and Infineon Technologies North America Corp.
