The relative humidity sensor segment in the humidity sensor market is expected to grow at a higher growth rate
The relative humidity sensor is expected to grow at a higher growth rate. Relative humidity sensors measure the relative humidity or RH, which is the ratio of the actual water vapor present in the air at a given temperature to the maximum water vapor present in the air at the same temperature. In weather reports and forecasts, the probability of dew or precipitation is indicated using relative humidity. Moreover, relative humidity is an important parameter when looking for comfort.
Asia Pacific market to record significant growth during the forecast period
Asia Pacific is projected to account for the largest share in the temperature sensor market during the forecast period. China, India, South Korea, and Japan are the major contributors to the growth of the temperature sensor industry in APAC.
