A wide range of factors drives the growth of the Asia Pacific piezoelectric sensor market, including increased demand for automobiles, population growth, and advancements in aerospace engineering.

Due to the growing demand for consumer electronics and automotive applications in countries such as China, Japan, and India, the Asia-Pacific region is expected to have the highest growth rate for piezoelectric sensors. As healthcare and aerospace industries use piezoelectric sensors more frequently, the region and North America are expected to see significant growth.

Piezoelectric sensors can be used for a variety of applications. In the automotive industry, piezoelectric sensors are used to detect collisions and deploy airbags in the event of an accident. As part of engine monitoring systems, they can also measure vibration and detect potential problems in the automotive industry.

Sensors that use piezoelectric properties are often used in the healthcare industry to monitor a patient's heart rate, blood pressure, and other vital signs. Using these sensors, devices designed for the use of prosthetics can detect muscle movements and electronically control the movement of the prosthetic device.

In the aerospace industry, sensors that measure strain and stress in aircraft, like wings and fuselages, can be used. Additionally, they can be used to monitor combustion processes in rocket engines. Mechanic sensors with piezoelectric properties can be used in touch screens to detect finger or stylus pressure. Vibration sensors can be found in several handheld devices, including mobile phones and gaming controllers.

World Health Organization data indicates that approximately 430 Billion people globally suffer from cochlear damage that can be corrected with cochlear implants. According to a study published in Matter by Prof. Song Yanlin and Associates Prof. Li Lihong from the Chinese Academy of Sciences' Institute of Chemistry has created a piezoelectric acoustic device inspired by the outer ear hair cells of a human. In this study, they developed a novel approach to developing lead-free molybdate niobate piezoelectric materials with morphotropic phase boundaries for highly efficient and flexible piezoelectric acoustics sensors.

A number of major manufacturers are developing advanced sensors to gain a competitive edge in the market. Some of these companies include Morgan Advanced Materials, Piezomechanik GmbH, APC International Ltd., Us Eurotek, Inc., Piezosystem Ceramtec GmbH, Exelis, Inc., Honeywell International Inc., and others. Innovating and using piezoelectricity continues to be a focus of these companies, which have contributed significantly to the sensor market.

For instance, London-based Spectris has acquired Dytran Instruments for $82 Billion (£66 Billion, €82 Billion), merging it with Hottinger Brüel & Kjær (HBK). Sensors manufactured by Dytran are used in space exploration, aerospace, industrial, and automotive applications. Combining HBK's US aerospace and space businesses will strengthen HBK's position in these industries, and Dytran's revenue will be enhanced through HBK's global distribution network.

Piezoelectric Sensors Market Overview

Piezoelectric sensors are the sensors capable of measuring temperature variations or pressure changes and also deviation in forces by taking advantage of mechanism of piezoelectric effect. Different materials used for segmentation of piezoelectric sensors are Piezoelectric Polymer, Piezoelectric Composites, Piezoelectric Ceramics, and Piezoelectric Crystals.

PZT sensors are manufactured & designed to meet most commercial specifications and these sensors are used to measure the mechanical deformation or the generated electric charge. PZT sensors can apply maximum pressure of thousand psi and the voltage measurement can range up to five volts.

These piezoelectric sensors include an extensive range of linearity over the dynamic range, ability to work independently of external power, low output noise, frequency, and ability to integrate acceleration signals to provide displacement and velocity. These unique features of PZT sensors are fueling the demand and hence fetching the growth of global piezoelectric sensors market.

Global PZT sensors market is rising due to the wide array of applications of piezoelectric accelerometers (type of PZT sensors) in vehicle stability control, measuring aftershocks and earthquakes, airbag operations in cars, image stabilization in camcorders, depth of CPR chest compression, advanced gaming experience like PlayStation 3, and others.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic Outbreak on Piezoelectric Sensors Market

Owing to the spread of novel coronavirus, the semiconductor industry faced many problems with production and supply chain issues. As a result manufacturing plants are closing operation in Asian countries as well as there is unstable flow of resources from supplies in Asia. Thus the growth of PZT sensor has dropped over last few quarters, due to COVID-19 outbreak.

In addition the pandemic outbreak has negatively affected the manufacturing as well as automotive, electronics and few other industrial sectors. As major applications of PZT sensors are in automotive and industrial manufacturing sectors, the market declined by almost 5%, owing to the lockdowns enforced by the governments.

However, the market are opening back and the PZT sensor market is anticipated to gain its momentum back by the end of Q1 2021.
