Sensors are devices which are being used for either detection or measurement of any physical input which could be light, motion or pressure among others from the physical environment. Biochemical sensors are devices which has the capability of converting any sort of chemical quantity into electrical signals. Components which are required for biochemical sensor includes transducer, chemically sensitive layer and analyte molecule. The biosensors or biochemical sensors helps in detection of analyte which then combines a physiochemical detector with a biological component like microorganisms, enzymes and antibodies among others. Transducer transforms the signal formed by interaction of analyte with biological element, and further converts that signal into a measurable one. On the basis of product type, the global biochemical sensor market can be segmented into thermal, optical, piezoelectric and electro-chemical among others. Agriculture, nutrition and healthcare among others form the major application areas where biochemical sensors are used globally.

Global biochemical sensors market on the basis of geography is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, Middle East and Africa.
Medical or healthcare sector forms one of the major areas which helps in driving the growth of biochemical sensors globally. Rising health awareness of people worldwide along with increase in demand for biochemical sensing devices which are hand held form the major reasons which has contributed in the rising demand and growth of the global biochemical sensors market. Biochemical sensors are also extensively used in miniaturized form in different wearable devices which has also helped in the growth of biochemical sensors market globally. In addition to this stringent government norms for safety testing of foods in agriculture industry will further help the global biochemical sensor market to grow. Along with this, biochemical sensors are also used extensively for checking the presence of pesticides, insecticides and other harmful contaminants which in turn will also act as an important driver to positively push the growth of global biochemical sensor market.
High costs are associated with the usage of biochemical sensors which acts as a major restraint of global biochemical sensor market further restricting the growth.Other Than this, lack of awareness among people regarding the applications of biochemical sensors along with huge research and development expenditure associated with the usage of biochemical sensors further negatively affects the market for biochemical sensors globally. Even though the commercialization of biochemical; sensors are slow still the rising demand post advancement in the medical sector will provide huge opportunities for the growth of global biochemical sensors market during the forecasted period. Silicon micro sensors and automotive biochemical sensor ae some of the other technologies in the biochemical sensors market which are experiencing high growth trends currently and are expected to further enhance in future.
