India Industrial Sensors and Transmitters Market is valued at over USD 1049.45 million in 2020, and it is expected to reach USD 6369.04 million by 2026, registering a CAGR of 35.17%, during 2021-2026. Increasing competition among various end-users to stay competitive by introducing world-class manufacturing facilities, and increasing consumer demand for superior quality products and concerns over human intervention, are expected to drive the growth of the market.

Key Highlights
Further, the demand for automation in government-deemed essential industries, such as food and beverage, manufacturing, and pharma, is increasing, primarily due to the lack of workforce and the requirement for remote monitoring and working, which has fueled the demand for various sensors.
Industrial sensors are a crucial part of factory automation and Industry 4.0. Sensors such as motion, environmental, and vibration sensors are used to monitor the health of equipment, from linear or angular positioning, tilt sensing, leveling, shock, or fall detection. India’s industries are positioned to augment their operations economically and demographically, serving domestic interests and export possibilities, which are set to rise in the near future.
The Government of India plans to make automobile manufacturing a primary driver as a part of the ’Make In India’ scheme. The Auto Mission Plan (AMP) 2016-26 estimates that the passenger vehicles’ market will triple to 9.4 million units by 2026, and this factor is expected to raise the adoption of sensors in the region. Companies are also expanding their operations to improve their positions in the markets they operate. For example, Gurgaon-based auto component supplier Minda Industries partnered with two Chinese subsidiaries of the US-based company Sensata and purchased wheel speed sensors required to optimize their portfolio.
Manufacturers in the Indian automotive industries are struggling to meet the demand for electric vehicles (EVs) with automated driving. As the prevalence of mixed production lines containing both human workers and sensors increases, the need for proximity sensors with suitably long sensing ranges will also rise. According to the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM), approximately 3.1 million passenger vehicles were produced across India as per their 2021 report. However, the automobile industry within the country witnessed a slowdown due to an economic slump and the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. The market is nonetheless expected to grow further with the application of sensors in the production line across the country.
The number of motor vehicles manufactured in India has been on a positive trajectory with few variations. According to the Ministry of Heavy Industries and Public Enterprises and SIAM India, the growth rate in domestic automobile production across India was about 6.3% in 2019. Passenger vehicle production in India saw a decline in 2020, with leading manufacturers having to reduce output to prevent inventory overloads due to the pandemic.

Key Market Trends

Flow Sensors are expected to be higher in demand, thereby driving the growth of the market.

Flow Sensors are components that can measure the flow of a fluid, such as a gas or liquid. These sensors utilize both mechanical and electrical subsystems to measure changes in the fluid’s physical attributes and calculate its flow. In India, the adoption of flow sensors is widely seen in various end-user industries, including pharmaceutical, automotive, oil and gas, chemical, water and wastewater, manufacturing, power generation, chemical, and others.
These sensors are distinguished by the type of technologies that are used to measure flow. The technologies include Coriolis, Differential Flow, Ultrasonic, Vortex, and others. There has been significant development in technologies, such as ultrasonic, to operate in harsh environments with precision.
In May 2020, Fuji Electric India launched a clamp-on type Ultrasonic Flow Meter for saturated steam, as a lot of industries run on steam, including power plants and food processing factories in India. With this launch, Fuji Electric now offers a comprehensive range of flow meters for customers in India for steam, fluids, and air, all designed with efficiency and optimization, offering accurate measuring. These can measure steam flow rate at very low pressures from 0.1 to 0.9 MPag. Fuji Electric in India has manufacturing facilities located in Chennai, Pune, and Bhiwandi.
Similarly, in August 2020, Panasonic Corporation, which has various operations in India, announced that it had developed an ultrasonic gas flow and concentration sensor designed for hydrogen. The sensor enables the measurement of the flow rate and concentration of hydrogen under humid conditions.
With the application of Internet of Things technology in the industrial field, the Industrial IoT has become the direction and trend of development. Gas flow sensors are widely used in the field of industrial automation, natural gas, metallurgy, mining, petroleum, aviation, industrial packaging, industrial cleaning, and other fields. Also, the need for flow measurement in oil and gas in response to stringent regulations related to the control of emission of toxic gas from power plants is propelling the adoption of flow sensors in the region.

Chemicals and Fertilizers sector is expected to witness higher growth and opportunities in the market.

The pressure sensor is one of the most commonly utilized measurement devices in the chemical industry’s automatic control. Almost all pressure sensor applications, including differential pressure, absolute pressure, gauge pressure, high pressure, differential pressure, high temperature, low temperature, and remote transmission flange pressure sensors of various materials and special processing, are used in large-scale chemical projects. It can be observed that the chemical industry’s demand for pressure sensors is expressed in four aspects: measurement precision, fast response, temperature, and static pressure characteristics, and long-term stability.
According to DCP India Private Limited, During the first half of 2021, the production volume of major chemicals across India was around 4.8 million metric tons. As of 2020, India was the sixth largest producer of chemicals in the world and the fourth largest in Asia.
Sensor assemblies that are explosion-proof (Ex d) or intrinsically safe (Ex I) are required in the Chemical industries, such as paints and flammable chemicals, because they deal with hydrocarbons and alcohols. Level, flow, pressure, and temperature measurements that are reliable and repeatable are critical for safe, accurate, and continuous process control. In order to monitor these processes, a variety of thermocouples, RTD sensors equipped with thermowells, infrared temperature sensors, and infrared thermal imaging are commonly utilized.
Temperatures in cracking and Sulphur recovery furnaces can range from cryogenic (far below zero) to over 800°C. Temperatures this high necessitate a diverse set of materials and sensor technologies. In applications below 600°C, RTD sensors provide a more precise reading and can be used repeatedly.
One of the most widely utilized automatic control devices in the chemical industry is the pressure transmitter. It includes virtually all pressure transmitter applications in large chemical projects, including differential pressure, absolute pressure, gauge pressure, pressure, differential pressure, high temperature, low temperature, and a variety of materials and special processing of remote flange Pressure Transmitters.
Liquid level sensors are employed in the Petrochemicals and Chemical factories to detect highly corrosive and acidic chemicals, ensuring that all operations run smoothly. Ultrasonic liquid level sensors are used in the petrochemical industry because they are non-contact devices that assure safety while detecting the quality of chemicals.
