Force Sensors Market

Date: 2016-05

Force sensors are used for many industrial and non-industrial applications such as traffic engineering, process monitoring, testing, process control, medical sciences biomechanics, and measuring equipment. Force sensors are also referred to as load cells, transducers that convert force into measurable electrical outputs. These sensors are hydraulic, pneumatic, piezoelectric, and capacitive load cells. However, strain-gage-based load cells are most common.
Force transducer, a piezoelectric polymer film will measure high-frequency forces and pressures. This kind of sensor is most likely found in automotive applications, for example a load measurement patch is embedded directly in a car tire integrated with a miniaturized data-processing unit. Since all dynamic forces are available at the contact area between the tire and the driving surface, parameters such as safety, dynamics, and comfort can be measured by one and the same patch. The scalable, high-resolution pressure sensor array can be applied to any surface to detect the smallest air flows, dynamic surface pressures of liquids as well as impacts and pressures. These innovations in force sensors will up surge the overall force sensors applications and thereby uplifting the market for force sensors.
The market is expected to experience significant growth in the coming years due to the increasing demand in industries such as Automotive, Pharmaceuticals, Medical, Robotics, Manufacturing and others which are exhibiting substantial market growth. Force sensors are classified into various types, namely: Capacitive Sensors, Strain Gauges, Piezo-resistive Sensors, Pyro-electric Sensors, Optical Sensors, Ultrasonic Sensor, Electrochemical Sensor, Load Cell Sensors, and others.
