Force Sensor Market Outlook – 2027 

The global force sensor market size was valued at $2.16 billion in 2019, and is projected to reach $3.30 billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of 5.30% from 2020 to 2027. Force sensor is a device that is used to estimate the amount of force applied to an object. Basically, the applied force is determined by finding the amount of variation in the resistance values of force sensing resistors.     

The overall working principle of force sensors is that they react to the applied force & change the value into a quantifiable figure. There are different kinds of force sensors available in the market dependent on different detecting components. The majority of force sensors are designed by utilizing force-sensing resistors. These sensors comprise electrodes & sensing film.  

Force-Sensor-Market-2020-2027

Force sensors are usually used to determine the force experienced by vehicle parts, such as dampers & axle beams, to avoid fatigue failure, particularly in heavy automotive vehicles, such as mining vehicles & construction trucks, as unexpected stress levels or overloading may lead to significant maintenance costs. They are also widely used in locomotive.

The global force sensor market share is anticipated to witness significant growth over the forecast period. Factors, such as low manufacturing cost, technological advancement, increase in demand for industrial robots, development of medical devices with force sensing technology, and development & innovations in the industrial sector, encourage the force sensor market growth. However, uncertainty in demand for force sensor from the end-user industry is a major restraint to the global force sensor industry. In addition, rising production of vehicles and growing automotive sales globally are expected to create lucrative force sensor market opportunity.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

  • The overall effect of the COVID-19 outbreak is impacting the production process of several industries of the market. As governments of different provinces have already announced total lockdown and temporarily shutdown of industries, the overall production process has been adversely affected. Therefore, this hampered the overall market globally. 
  • The COVID-19 pandemic is impacting the society and overall economy across the global. The impact of this outbreak is growing day-by-day as well as affecting the supply chain. The crisis is creating uncertainty in the stock market, falling business confidence, massive slowing of supply chain, and increasing panic among the customer segments. 
  • The Asian and European countries under lockdowns have suffered major loss of business and revenue due to the shutdown of manufacturing units in the region. The operations of the production and manufacturing industries have been heavily impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak, thereby leading to slowdown in the growth of the force sensor market in 2020.  
  • The COVID-19 pandemic severely impacted the global automotive sector by halting the production facility, which in turn significantly decreased the demand in industries. The symptoms include a large-scale manufacturing interruption across Europe and interruption in Chinese parts exports, which may hinder the force sensor market.

Analyst Review

A force sensor is an instrument that measures the amount of force between two surfaces. Force sensors or force transducers translate an input mechanical force into electrical signal at output. Basically, it works as a force sensing resistor in an electric circuit. These force measurement instruments vary with their working principles based on factors considered during designing process. They are used to measure weight, mass, pressure, and torque. They can be used over a wide range of temperature. These are used in industries, such as electronics, robotics, chemical, agricultural sector, paper & print, for various purposes.

Growing adoption and application of force sensors in the manufacturing, construction, and industrial sectors boost the force sensor market growth. In addition, increasing demand for force sensors in the robotics and medical sectors propels the market growth. Moreover, low manufacturing cost, accuracy, and high reliability also drive the market during the forecast period. Furthermore, the factor that restricts the market growth is that force sensors are rigid in construction.
