Outlook of the global exhaust pressure sensor market
Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global exhaust pressure sensor market to grow moderately at a CAGR of almost 2% until 2020. The advent of stringent rules for vehicle emission control has compelled automotive manufacturers to install emission control sensors in all their vehicles. This, in turn, has triggered growth in the global market for exhaust pressure sensors during the forecast period. Furthermore, with the growing demand for passenger cars and vehicle automation, the market for exhaust pressure sensors will have a positive outlook until 2020.
The recent rise in the demand for passenger cars will impel the prospects for growth in the global exhaust pressure sensor market during the forecast period. Recently, it has been observed that regions like APAC, North America, Central Europe, and Western Europe are currently experiencing a high demand for passenger cars due to factors like the increase in income, purchasing power parity, and urbanization. This increase in the demand for passenger cars will, in turn, necessitate the implementation of exhaust pressure sensors.
Geographical segmentation of the exhaust pressure sensor market
At present, the APAC region dominates the global market for exhaust pressure sensors and is expected to continue its market dominance during the forecast period. Countries such as China, India, and Japan are contributing towards the growth of this market. Some of the big automakers, such as Ford, Mercedes-Benz, and Volkswagen, are planning to expand their manufacturing facilities to India as it will help them to bridge the supply-demand gap in the Indian market. This recent shift in the manufacturers’ facilities will aid in the steady growth of the market in
Outlook of the global data converter market
Extensive research carried out by the analysts at Technavio has shown that the global data converter market will grow at CAGR of nearly 6% over the predicted period. Data converters are widely used in consumer electronic devices like smartphones and tablets. Functions such as image processing, touch sensitivity, call signal processing, network signal processing, and video calling require the use of data converters. In addition, the integration of features such as gesture and voice command in the consumer electronic devices require data converters in the back-end. Owing to the high penetration of Smart TVs in emerging markets like Asia-Pacific, the global data converter market will witness exponential growth over the years as it plays a key role in the proper functioning of such devices. Furthermore, data converters are extensively used for the efficient functioning of technologies like LED backlighting, network interfaces, and wireless video connections.
The growing need for low power consumption data converters is one of the key trends that is expected to drive this market’s growth in the coming years. At present, several industries are introducing low power consumption data converters in the market. Portable and non-portable devices use low power consumption devices due to the growing need for energy-efficient data converters. For instance, Texas Instruments introduced the ADC3444 in 2015 which brought down the power consumption from 750mW/channel to 98mW/channel. Furthermore, low-power design is another factor that is gaining popularity in the market as it monitors the temperature of the module. Analog to digital converter (ADC) and digital to analog converter (DAC) require low-power design in order to function accurately and avoid overheating of the module.
Overview of the global semiconductor laser treatment market
Market research analysts at Technavio have predicted that the global semiconductor laser treatment market will grow steadily at a CAGR of more than 11% by 2020. The rising importance of physical appearance will contribute to the growth of the cosmetic treatment industry in major countries such as the US, Japan, Brazil, and South Korea. As a result, the use of medical laser therapy in non-surgical medical procedures is becoming common in these regions. Non-invasive laser procedures are used in fields such as dermatology, ophthalmology cardiovascular, cosmetic surgery, and also in oncology-related surgery. The growing preference of customers for treatments that provide quick results in a short time has resulted in the rapid increase in the adoption of aesthetic clinical treatments. This, in turn, will increase the demand for private clinics that offer cosmetic treatments like liposuction, breast augmentation procedures, and anti-aging treatments.
Continuous R&D investments and ongoing clinical trials will result in the introduction of better product designs that incorporate advanced technological features. Technological advancements coupled with infrastructure advances will lead to an increase in healthcare expenditure in the coming years. Countries will have the need to exponentially increase their healthcare expenditures to provide basic health insurance coverage, develop a primary healthcare service system, and also to improve the availability of medication in rural and suburban areas. This will result in the formation of
