Wearable, automotive and IoT drive sensor growth at IDTechEx Show!

The last decade has seen the cost of sensors fall to an average sales price of 50 cents from several dollars, driven first by the increase in sensors for automotive followed by consumer electronics such as smart phones. The next phase of volume growth will be driven by wearable technology, IoT and driver assisted/autonomous vehicles. This is also driving work on new types of sensors, such as flexible, larger area ones.
