Force Sensors Market will thrive at a CAGR of over 5% during 2021-2029

As indicated by a new study of Future Market Insights (FMI), the global force sensor market will thrive at a CAGR of over 5% during the forecast period (2019-2029). Increasing healthcare expenditure, extensive R&D activities, and increasing number of sensors per vehicle will remain among the prominent boosters to the growth of force sensor market.

A force sensor plays an integral role in industrial automation industry. With increasing penetration of robotics, there has been increased adoption of an integrated miniature version of force sensors. Significant adoption of force sensors for robotic applications such as deburring, grinding, and drilling will continue to account for substantial revenue generation in the global force sensor market. The adoption has also been remarkable in robotic medical systems.

Force sensors are used for weight measurement, active side stick force sensing, to support new aircraft and spacecraft hardware designs, assembly, testing, and control. Increasing adoption of force sensors for monitoring pilot input forces for flight data recording along with applications in landing gear drop tests, landing gear shear pin tests, pedal force tests, and sample and material tests. The need for aircraft structural tests as well as rocket structural tests in the aerospace and defense industry is thus propelling the growth of the force sensor market.

Force sensors are used to detect force and torque applied in power plants and industry applications. They provide precise and reliable force sensing performance in a compact commercial-grade package. Force sensors are simple and easy-to-integrate and also offer different features such as precision force sensing, fast response time, and low repeatability errors.

The reliability of such features drives the growth of the force sensors market. The need for dynamic fatigue and static fatigue tests in laser welding applications are boosting the demand for force sensors as force sensors help measure force in electro-mechanical actuators and monitor force brakes.

Key Takeaways – Force Sensor Market Study

  • Automotive and medical & healthcare industries would remain key end users of force sensors. These two verticals currently account for a collective market share of nearly 40%.
  • Rising demand for portable medical devices and assist machines for emergency medical treatment is likely to push the adoption of force sensors by healthcare industry at a higher rate.
  • In-house development of paper force sensors for musical applications is expected to create new growth opportunities in force sensor market.
  • The capacitive force sensor will continue to lead the way in force sensor market throughout the projection period.

Manufacturers must focus on the expanding industrial automation landscape and adapt to the changing manufacturing landscape, in addition to increasing their focus on deploying touch interface across a variety of applications such as press force monitoring and transportation.
