Lead zirconate titanate often referred to as PZT is one of the most widely used piezoelectric ceramic materials in the world. PZT is an intermetallic inorganic compound which is insoluble in all the solvents.
Lead zirconate titanate shows piezoelectric effect (ability to produce electric charge in response to mechanical stress applied). It is used across a wide range of applications in the field of electroceramics. Lead zirconate titanate is of two types viz. hard lead zirconate titanate and soft lead zirconate titanate.
The hard lead zirconate titanate also known as high power ceramics can withstand high mechanical stress as well as high electrical voltage. They are used when high voltage energy is required. However, the soft lead zirconate titanate is used when high charge sensitivity is important. The lead zirconate titanate materials are used to produce high voltage, production and detection of sound as well as electronic frequency generation.
The study on lead free piezoelectric materials can restrain growth of global lead zirconate titanate market. But the alternatives can also be toxic. However, the global lead zirconate titanate market is anticipated to witness a moderate single digit growth in the forecast period.
How the Lead Zirconate Titanate (PZT) Market is Being Shaped by Growth in Different Sectors
- Need in Electronic Industry
Lead zirconate titanate (PZT) is in high demand in the electrical industry and serves as an electrical switch that may be operated by electricity. It is used to control a variety of electrical devices, including computers, office machinery, and home appliances. Additionally, as it serves as a transformer and is used in telecommunications equipment, speakers, and microphones, it is likely to expand the lead zirconate titanate market share.
- High Preference in Medical Industry
Lead zirconate titanate is used in a variety of medical applications, such as a wide range of sensors and transducers, including acoustic emission sensors, strain gauges, pressure sensors, etc.
- Demand in Chemical Industry
The chemical industry uses lead zirconate titanate, or PZT, in a variety of applications. In addition, lead zirconate titanates are utilized as piezoelectric materials, which are crucial for many different kinds of sensors and transducers, including acoustic emission sensors, strain gauges, pressure sensors, etc.
This application encourages the producers to fulfill the demand for lead zirconate titanate for each sector, and therefore contribute to overall market growth.
The fact that PZT ceramic is employed in so many different applications is another factor influencing the growth of the PZT market. Moreover, when high coupling and/or high charge sensitivity are crucial, such as in flow or level sensors, ultrasonic nondestructive testing/evaluation (NDT/NDE) applications, or for precise inspections of automotive, structural, or aerospace components, soft (sensor) PZT ceramic powders are frequently utilized.
Sales of lead zirconate titanate are increasing as a result of its high dielectric constant, high coupling, high charge sensitivity, high density with fine grain structure, high curie point, and a clean, noise-free frequency response.
