Vibration Sensors Market Size, Industry Analysis Report, Regional Outlook, Application Development Potential, Price Trend, Competitive Market Share & Forecast, 2021 – 2027
Report ID: GMI2545
Vibration Sensors Market size is anticipated to grow due to the extensive use of these devices in the industrial sector. These are essential components in the predictive machine maintenance. Unusual vibrations in heavy machinery engines can be detrimental to the machine lifecycle and cause a business to incur exorbitant costs for repairing and maintaining them. For instance, the adoption of these components in automobiles allows the user to detect problems at an early stage, protecting them from further damages and expenses, contributing to the industry growth. Additionally, the cost of these components is constantly reducing, primarily in the Asia Pacific region, further contributing toward the proliferation of the vibration sensors market. The availability of low-cost labor and resources, such as electricity and manufacturing space, is allowing business operating in the industry to lower the total costs of developing these devices.
The usage of these components in seismic intensity scales in detecting and preventing catastrophic events is anticipated to drive the vibration sensors market. These devices aid in the detection of small vibrations and send alerts to the users in the event of an oncoming natural calamity, such as an earthquake or a tsunami, thereby reducing the loss incurred in terms of property, financial funds, and human life.
False alarms negatively impact the vibration sensors market. Repeated false alarms from faulty and tamper-proof burglar systems can cause the owners to incur heavy fines. In mining facilities and disaster evacuation, false alerts can stop operations for long durations, causing inconvenience and financial loss. On the contrary, these systems not working effectively can also be detrimental and hazardous owing to which companies operating in the vibration sensors market are required to constantly test these systems.
Rising concerns amongst people to safeguard their property is a major driver of the vibration sensors market. People are adopting the technology to secure their lockers. The alarm turns on if abnormal pressure is applied on the lockers, making the lockers more secure than before. Various government bodies across the world are placing a high focus on driver and automotive safety and have launched stringent regulations. For instance, these devices can detect knocking from an engine body and can prevent the cylinder walls and piston from being deformed by thermal stress.
Segmentation of the vibration sensors market by type includes electrodynamics, accelerometers, velocity transducers, and non-contact displacement transducers. Accelerometers will dominate in terms of revenue and growth owing to their high penetration in the consumer electronics sector. These components are used in detecting tilt and movement. For instance, an increasing number of companies is developing smartphones that use device movements for commands.
The vibration sensors market segmented by sensing technologies includes variable capacitance, tri-axial sensors, piezo resistive, hand probe, and strain gauge. The demand for piezo resistive systems is anticipated to be relatively high as these are optimized to sense minute movements while reducing the sensor size. Additionally, these are priced at very low costs allowing for their higher adoption. The variable capacitance accelerometers segment in the vibration sensors market is anticipated to witness a strong growth in the coming years as these consume less power, can function at extreme temperatures, and provide high sensitivity and linearity.
The application segment of the vibration sensors market comprises aerospace, coal and quarry sector, oil and gas, automotive, consumer, electronics machine and structure, medical, and pharmaceuticals. The airline industry is anticipated to witness a significant growth as the threats and risks associated with the industry are high. Vibrational sensors can detect electrical and mechanical motor faults and if the rotors are out of balance. These components can identify engine problems in advance and problems caused by air turbulence. The proliferation of vibration sensors market in the medical industry is anticipated to drive growth during the forecast timeframe. The system is used in imaging, surgical instruments, diagnostic, and therapeutic.
Vibration sensors market bifurcated into wired and wireless sensors based on the connectivity. The demand for wireless sensors is comparatively higher as compared to wired devices owing to the advanced features and advantages associated with it such as their deployment at remote places without continuous external power supply. Additionally, these are convenient and easy to handle.
Germany is expected to grow at a rapid rate during the forecast period due to the presence of vibration sensors market players, automotive industry manufacturers, and the high adoption of these sensors in the airline industry, making Europe a prominent region. The strong growth of the industrial sector, facilitated by the surge in low-cost consumer and industrial products is a major factor for the large market size of the vibration sensors market in China. Japan is an earthquake-prone country and frequent earthquakes happen in Japan. Usage of the system is increasing in the region to reduce the loss, which occurs during earthquakes.
Players in the vibration sensors market are TE Connectivity Ltd, Dytran Instruments, Colibrys Ltd., Hansford Sensors Ltd., Fluke Corporation, ASC GmbH, Inc., Honeywell International, Inc., National Instruments Corporation, FUTEK Advanced Sensor Technology, Inc., MEMSIC, Silicon Designs, Inc. and Robert Bosch GmbH. Players in the vibration sensors market are investing heavily in R&D activities to advance existing technologies and provide customized products to the customers to remain competitive. For instance, in December 2017, Fluke announced the launch of Vibration Sensor 3560 FC, which is a wireless, remote monitoring system that is designed to fit in hard-to-reach places.
