Why is the Importance of Self-Powered Sensors Rising at a Fast Pace?

“Need to Reduce Sensor Size Will Drive Usage of Self-Powered Sensors in IoT Applications”

Different types of sensors, including temperature sensors, level, pressure sensors, and image sensors, have experienced a significant size reduction as a result of technological advancements over the past ten years. As a result, sensors are being utilized more widely across industries, including automotive, healthcare, consumer electronics, and many more. This has significantly contributed to the expansion of the market for all battery-free sensors.

Small form factor sensors have been quickly incorporated into gadgets such as smartphones, drones, wearables, and robots over the past few years. The usage of sensing technologies in IoT applications has expanded owing to the development of low-cost, highly dependable sensors.

At present, sensors are utilized in practically all applications across several end-use industries. Based on these factors, the market for self-powered sensors is expected to showcase 3.9X growth over the forecast period of 2022 to 2032.

“Data Security Concerns & Advancements in Self-powered Sensors”

Despite the enormous potential of IoT, there are worries about data privacy and security related to IoT devices. Every aspect of IoT is data-driven. Sensors and IoT-enabled devices produce enormous amounts of data every second. Different kinds of sensors are used by businesses and organizations to monitor this data and make decisions based on it. It is vital to ensure the authenticity of data as well as the security, resilience, and dependability of devices that gather data since real-time business operations increasingly rely on machine-generated data.

IoT creates additional decentralized entry opportunities for malware since it connects various gadgets. Cyber attackers may use IoT infrastructure as an access point and harm other networked devices if they are not adequately secured. Unless market players come up with robust solutions with respect to cybersecurity, the market will not grow as per its full potential.

“Increasing Use of Wearable Devices to Aid Market Progress”

With an increase in the standard of living, smart wearable device penetration will further increase in society. Self-powered sensor usage in wearable devices will only drive the overall wearable devices industry but also make these products more cost-effective.

In wearable devices, self-powered sensors provide energy supply for portable and wearable products. Consumers use wearable devices because they can save time from travelling for a check-up or they can monitor health at home with ease. A wearable device is also used as a tracking device.

An upsurge in the number of service and manufacturing companies has completely changed the wearable device sector in the last few years. Increasing use of wearable devices is directly supporting the market growth of self-powered sensors.

Thereby, demand for self-powered sensors to be used in wearable devices is set to create an absolute dollar opportunity of US$ 260.2 million during the forecast period.

Why is the Vibration Power Source Widely Used in Sensors?

A power source is used to gain or absorb power in self-powered sensors. There are three types of power sources that are used. A temperature gradient (thermoelectric energy harvesting) is a unique power source used to gain power in self-powered sensors. This power source can absorb power only within certain temperature limits.

The shortcoming of radio waves (RF energy harvesting) is that they may interfere with the already existing frequency in the environment and get modulated, which can disrupt communication.

These two types of power sources have many limitations. The vibration power source (piezoelectric energy harvesting) has certain limits that can stop the device from gaining power. It is very easy to gain power in self-powered sensors by using the vibration power source. As such, the vibration power source is widely used in self-powered sensors. These self-powered sensors have increased in prominence in recent years, reaching a market valuation of US$ 207 million at the end of 2021.
