Key Factors Shaping Force Sensor Market
Rising Demand for Force Sensors in Aerospace & Defense Industry
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.
New Applications in Laser Welding and Electro-mechanical Actuators
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.
Heightened Demand for Force Sensors Per Vehicle
Sensors are essential components of various automotive electronic control systems, including tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS), engine management systems (MAP/BAP) and oil pressure sensing (OPS). The demand for force sensors per vehicle is high due to changing government regulations on emissions monitoring and braking systems, rising fuel efficiency standards, and increasing focus on deploying advanced sensing solutions to enhance user experience.
Additionally, force sensors are also used in the automobile sector to monitor centripetal force during turns to improve drivers’ safety. Such factors are expected to accelerate the demand for force sensors from the automotive industry on a global scale.
