    Market Highlights

    The Aircraft Temperature Sensors Market is likely to grow at a significant CAGR of 11%, in the long run, to reach US$ 0.5 billion in 2028.  

    Temperature sensors provide several advantages to aerospace applications, including reliable information in extreme environments, real-time information, fast response due to low thermal mass, precision direct-immersion reading with thermocouple/RTD combination, vibration resistance, and fiber-optic option reliability in high-voltage, EMI environments, etc. To protect an aircraft, temperature sensors are widely used in the engine, landing gear, cabin, and brakes. Thermostats, resistive temperature detectors (RTD), thermocouples, and thermistors are examples of temperature sensors used in aircraft. The thermocouple and RTD sensors are the two most commonly used temperature sensors in aircraft engine applications. RTD provides excellent accuracy, whereas thermocouples can withstand extreme temperatures, allowing thermocouples to detect overheating in engine systems and alert the pilot.

    After three difficult years (2019-2021), the aerospace industry is gradually moving back on track. The industry is still encircled by several geopolitical challenges, which are putting pressure on the supply chain along with market demand. Despite these challenges, Stratview still predicts impressive growth in the next couple of years, followed by sequential growth in the mid to long-term

    An expected rise in the production rates of key aircraft programs (B737Max, A320neo, etc.) in the wake of rebounding air passenger traffic, increasing aircraft fleet size, upcoming next-generation aircraft programs, and a greater number of temperature sensors per aircraft to regulate the temperature level in the cabin, engine, and cargo areas are the factors driving the demand for temperature sensors in the aircraft sensors industry.

    Recent Market JVs and Acquisitions: 

    • In 2021, FLYHT Aerospace Solutions acquired the water vapor sensing system product line of SpectraSensors, a subsidiary of Endress+Hauser.
    • In 2020, TE Connectivity, a leading provider of connectivity and sensing solutions in the industrial sector, completed the first public acquisition of First Sensor AG. It currently owns a 71.87% share of First Sensor AG.

    The market is segmented into thermostat, resistive temperature detector, and others. The thermostat is expected to remain the dominant as well as the fastest-growing sensor type in the market during the forecast period, owing to its wide usage in the engine, cargo, landing gears, wheels & brakes, and flight control systems.

    By Application Type

    The market is segmented into the engine; landing gear, wheels & brakes; flight control systems; cabin, cargo & ECS; and others. The engine is expected to remain the dominant application type in the market during the forecast period as a large number of temperature sensors are used in several sections of the engine, such as the front blade, compressor, turbine, and gearbox.

    Regional Analysis

    In terms of regions, North America is expected to remain the largest market for aircraft temperature sensors during the forecast period, mainly driven by the USA. This region has the presence of a large number of major aircraft OEMs, such as Airbus and Boeing, which make the region the growth engine of the aircraft industry. Most of the tier players, airlines, and suppliers have their presence in the region to address the emergent needs of OEMs.

    Asia-Pacific is projected to witness the highest growth in the market over the next five years with the increasing focus of industry stakeholders to expand in emerging economies such as India and China. The region is expected to occupy ~38% share of the world's aircraft fleet in the next twenty years.
