According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Wireless Sensors Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2019-2024”, the global wireless sensors market reached a value of US$ 3.7 Billion in 2018. Wireless sensors refer to standard measurement tools that are used to record the physical conditions of an environment and organize the data at a particular location. These sensors are assisted by transmitters to convert signals from process control instruments into radio transmission, which is further converted to a specific and desired output. The signals form a network which allows the monitoring of numerous locations from a single station. They are also designed to be used amidst severe environmental conditions like wind, sound, humidity, temperature and pollution levels and can acquire data from difficult-to-access locations. As a result, they are utilized for water management and the detection of forest fires, floods, pests and diseases.
On account of widespread internet penetration across the globe, the sales of smart and wearable devices are bourgeoning which, in turn, is driving the sales of wireless sensors. Moreover, the thriving defense industry is contributing significantly to the market growth as these sensors are widely employed across the military command, control, communications, computing, intelligence, battlefield surveillance, reconnaissance and targeting systems. Apart from this, manufacturers are continually developing hi-tech future-based devices and focusing specifically on autonomous vehicles. This is expected to accelerate the market growth since wireless sensors form an essential component of these devices. On account of these factors, the global wireless sensors market size is expected to reach US$ 11.7 Billion by 2024, exhibiting a CAGR of 21.4% during 2019-2024.
