Temperature Transmitters

Publish Date

The Temperature Transmitters Global Market Research study delivers current market analysis plus a five year market and technology forecast. The study is available in multiple editions including worldwide, all regions, and most major countries. The research comprises device-specific segmentation including transmitter type, intelligence, application, and communication protocol.  Panel mount transmitters in DIN-style or rail-mounted configurations are used when the distance between the sensor measurement and control room is relatively short and free of plant electrical noise.  Head mount transmitters fit into the field connection box or thermo-well head of temperature sensors.  Field mount transmitters can be located at a certain distance away from the temperature sensors because of ambient and process temperature limitations or location and application considerations.

ARC has segmented the temperature transmitters according to the sensor inputs, such as RTD, thermocouple, universal, and multi-input types.  RTD and thermocouple-type temperature transmitters work only with RTD and thermocouple inputs, respectively.  Universal input transmitters accept RTD, thermocouple, resistance, and voltage inputs.  Multi-input transmitters accept more than one input signal, either all of the same type or a combination of different types.

Increasing Investment in Automation and PAM Systems Drive the Temperature Transmitter Market

The increase in demand in process industries for automation and Plant Asset Management (PAM) systems is driving the demand for intelligent field devices.  The compelling case that PAM systems provide for reducing operational costs helped this market grow even during tough economic times.  ARC expects that users of intelligent field devices, like temperature transmitters, will leverage the wealth of information provided by temperature measurement technology, which can not only reveal the health of a company’s plant assets for PAM purposes, but also help users diagnose their processes.  With the increasing emphasis on plant safety, there is great potential for using temperature sensors and transmitters to monitor the health of production assets, such as motors and other rotating machinery, which are largely “dumb” non-instrumented devices.

Temperature Transmitters Strategic Issues

Temperature Transmitter Market Trends

In addition to providing a five-year market forecast, the temperature transmitter market research provides detailed quantitative current market data and addresses key strategic issues as follows.

Strategic Issue for Temperature Transmitter Vendors: Price-sensitive Market in Developing Nations

Many large global companies have moved their manufacturing operations to developing nations such as China and India to take advantage of low-cost labor.  These companies are building world-scale plants with state-of-the-art instrumentation and systems.  While these global companies have the desire and resources to implement high-priced advanced field devices, local small manufacturers are looking for low-cost solutions.  In countries such as China and India, capital funding is expensive and hence many local manufacturers, with limited financing, are highly cost-conscious.  These end users are more concerned about their ability to make affordable upfront investment, and this often results in low-cost equipment purchases.  While this scenario presents an opportunity for low-cost temperature transmitter suppliers, the competition in this segment is fierce.  The tough competition puts further downward pressure on price, inhibiting market revenue growth.

Strategic Issue for Users: Smart Devices Present Unique Challenges

The introduction of smart field devices poses some significant challenges for technology users.  With so much intelligence being pushed to the field device, end user companies need to distribute, verify, and audit those rules in a distributed environment.  While reasonably straightforward to do in a centralized system, managing those business rules in a non-centralized world is far more challenging.  With higher connectivity to IoT, users may also face integration issues.
