Force Sensors Market trends research and projections
for 2017-2024: Global Market Insights Inc.
This Force Sensors Market report is an exhaustive research on company’s active in
Force Sensors sector, its applications, products, end-users, trends and predictions on
how the market will grow in coming years.
Force Sensors Market size shall witness a healthy growth in forecast period with
application in aerospace, defence, printing, packaging, robotics and automotive
industry. Its usage has increased for advanced electronic control systems as the
product improve response time and efficiency of machines. Additionally, this has ultrathin construction (thickness less than 0.5mm) that provides flexibility and minimizes
interference and disturbance to normal action. These factors are expected to propel
force sensors market during the forecast timeframe.
Force sensors are sensing device and act as pressure sensing resistor in electrical
circuit. Resistance of the device is very high at no load condition and as force is
applied, resistance decreases and is measured by millimetre. On application of
pressure corresponding electric current value gets generated. These are supplied as
polymer sheet that is applied by screen printing. It consists of both electrically
conducting and non-conducting particles present in form of matrix. The particles are
in sub micrometre size, formulated to enhance mechanical properties, increase
surface durability and reduce temperature dependence.
Adoption of internet of things (IOT) technology has augmented its usage in consumer
electronics, healthcare, home automation and retail & logistics to enhance
performance capabilities. The product has an edge over counterparts owing to its
affordability and good shock resistance. Robot application in industries has propelled
in current years and technological development has increased its use in medical
devices to improve precision. Medical device market has registered a CAGR above
5% that has enhanced product usage. Such factors are expected to further boost force
Major restraint for force sensors market is volatility in demand. Demand is not fixed
among end use sector that acts as a challenge for its manufacturing plans. Rejection
rate in manufacturing facilities is quite high either due to damage or low sensitivity that
can reduce overall production capacity. Further, aftermarket sales channel is not fully
developed that restricts product growth.
Based on type, force sensors market is segmented into, capacitive, strain gauge,
piezoelectric, piezo resistive, optical, load cell, ultrasonic, magnetic and
electrochemical. Capacitive contributes majorly with applications in computer mouse,
mobile phones and digital audio players owing to excellent sensitivity, repeatability
and temperature stability. Piezoelectric type is growing at fast pace owing to its use in
touch pads of mobile phones and to monitor combustion in internal combustion
engines. Magnetic field based sensors have substantial share as these are small in
size that provide higher spatial resolution and does not require microfabrication with
overall cost reduction.
Various end-use industries in force sensors market is classified as aerospace,
defence, printing, packaging, robotics and automotive. Automotive segment has
significant share as these are essential components in automotive electric control
system including oil pressure sensing, tire pressure monitoring and engine
management system. Stringent government regulations for emissions monitoring has
further enhanced its usage.
Growth in deployment of robotics in manufacturing facilities and medical industries to
improve efficiency and accuracy has amplified force sensors market. Aerospace and
defence segment has substantial share owing to use of piezoelectric sensors for
cryogenic fuel pulsation, testing rocket motor combustion instability, monitoring
helicopter health and hydraulic pump elevation.
North America contributes considerably in global force sensors market with rapid
technological advancement and increasing application in end use industry. Presence
of NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) and strong defence industry
further promotes its adoption.
Asia Pacific has significant share with use of capacitive type in touch pad mobile
phones. The region has highest share in smart phones owing to presence of global
players such as Samsung, Ericsson and Huawei. Europe, led by Germany has
substantial share with well-established and flourishing automobile industry hosting
giants such as Audi and Volkswagen.
Prominent manufacturers of force sensors market are Tekscan, TE Connectivity,
Feutek Advanced Technology, Measurement Specialities, Siemens, Sensitronics,
Omron Corporation, Texas Instruments, ATI Industrial Automation, Digi Key and GE
Measurement. Companies are devising new technology to manufacture better product
and minimize damage. For instance, Tekscan has developed wireless ‘FlexiForce’
technology to reduce their damage and increase their profitability.
