Sweat Sensors Market is expected to grow at CAGR 9.8% by 2029 due to advancement in sensor technology, says Absolute Markets Insights

Rapid development in internet of things (IoT) is expected to drive the global sweat sensors market growth in various application areas such as healthcare and fitness, military and defense consumer electronics and others. Sweat sensors are majorly accepted in sports and healthcare industry. Recent advances show the development of integrated, mechanically flexible and multiplexed sensor systems with on-site circuitry for signal processing and wireless data transmission. When compared with single-analyte sensors, such devices provide an opportunity to more accurately analyze analytes that are dependent on other parameters (such as sweat rate and pH) by improving calibration from in situ real-time analysis, while maintaining a lightweight and wearable design. Some of the commonly measured analytes in sweat are electrolytes, such as sodium, potassium and chloride. Although sodium has been shown to be a useful marker for electrolyte imbalance, there is no evidence of any correlation between blood and sweat sodium. Other analytes found in eccrine sweat are urea and lactate. Presently, for disease and health condition detection, the analytes are mainly metabolites and electrolytes. In recent advances, it has been reported that sweat sensors sewn into athletic clothing may be able to perform real-time data analysis of biomarkers such as electrolytes, metabolites, and acidity. The novel sweat sensor technology would feature flexible threads coated with conductive inks that could be used to detect changes in perspiration, giving athletes’ information on pH levels, lactate, sodium, and other performance-related substances. Sweat can also be used to track:

  • Cortisol, the hormone most related to your stress response
  • Glucose, which could be used for diabetes monitoring
  • Ammonium, to give an indication of protein breakdown
  • Hypoxia, indicating inefficient use of oxygen

Researchers are also finding ways to expand the possibilities of sweat sensors in fitness band which can used by fitness athletes’ as well as for normal individuals. Wearable strain sensor for real-time sweat volume monitoring is an approach that emplys the super-absorbent hydrogel (made by thermal cross-linking of polyacrylic acid (PAA)-polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) hydrogels) as absorbent materials to achieve sweat collection. The swelling of the hydrogel during sweat absorption caused the embedded strain sensing fabrics (fabricated by coating conductive carbon ink) to stretch and further led to the change of the resistance of the strain sensing fabric. Such sensor successfully converts sweat volume into intuitive changes in the resistivity of the strain sensing fabrics, and directly outputs the monitoring results through the computer. The hydrogels in this sensor can directly wick sweat up off the skin surface to swell, and then trigger the strain sensing fabrics response without any complicated fabrications or operations and any interference of motion or lighting. Researchers in Korea have developed a type of sweat sensor in which the type can "heal" itself if damaged during exercise

Important health conditions can be monitored and on-demand regulating drugs can be delivered using integrated wearable systems but require correlation verification between sweat and blood measurements using in vivo validation tests before any clinical application can be considered. Improvements are necessary for device sensitivity, accuracy and repeatability to provide more reliable and personalized continuous measurements. With rapid advancements and innovations, it can be duly concluded that non-invasive WFSs for sweat analysis have only skimmed the surface of their health monitoring potential and further significant advancement is sure to be made in the medical field. Such factors are expected to aid the overall sweat sensors market growth.
