Vibration Sensor Market: Insights
Vibration sensors are used to measure the frequency of vibration occurring in a system, machine, or equipment parts. The growing demand for maintenance and monitoring of machinery and equipment as they operate is expected to increase the demand for vibration sensors in the market. The vibration sensors market has been growing steadily in recent years as these vibration sensors are used in various applications like monitoring and maintenance of machinery, monitoring bridges, buildings, and are even used to predict the occurrence of natural disasters like earthquakes. Vibration sensors can help machine maintenance staff to carry out maintenance of machinery before they break down and cause additional cost and labor. Vibration sensors are becoming increasingly popular in information and communication technology industries like IoT, machine learning, cloud-based systems, and wireless sensor networks. These technologies are being combined with machinery and equipment to automate the process of monitoring and predictive maintenance of machinery and equipment in automated production processes. Vibration sensors are being used in energy harvesting systems that convert vibrations into electrical energy. Manufacturing industries and automobiles use vibration harvesting systems to convert vibrational energy into electrical energy from the vibrations created when the machinery or automobile is operating. The electricity generated from the vibrations is then used to power the vibration monitoring systems to monitor the vibrations from the machinery or automobiles. This increased application of vibration sensors in vibration energy harvesters has increased the demand for vibration sensors and has had a positive impact on the vibration sensor market. For monitoring the railway tracks, vibration sensors come into the picture. Vibration sensors are used to detect the issues present in railways like breaks in rails, disjointed railway tracks, and the presence of obstructions on the railway tracks. Amid the process of creating and launching novel railway monitoring systems, the market has witnessed rising interest in vibration sensors.
Vibration Sensor Market: By Material
Based on the materials that are used to make vibration sensors, the vibration sensor market can be segmented into doped silicon, piezoelectric ceramics, and quartz. Piezoelectric ceramics are expected to hold the dominant share of the market during the forecast period. Piezoelectric ceramic-based sensors have very good sensitivity to low charges of electricity and offer good noise reduction which reduces the interference and unwanted signals from the sensors. They are used extensively in the automobile industry to make wheel balancing machines to correct wheel imbalances that can be read as vibrations. Recently, piezoelectric ceramic-based sensors are being used in creating musical equipment. Piezoelectric ceramic-based sensors are lightweight compared to materials like quartz which have facilitated the usage of these sensors in accelerometers.
Vibration Sensor Market: By Type
Based on type, the vibration sensor market can be segmented into accelerometers, velocity sensors, and displacement sensors. The accelerometers segment is expected to hold the lion’s share of the market during the forecast period. Accelerometers enjoy a large share of the market due to their widespread use in automobiles, consumer electronics, and manufacturing industries. Accelerometers are extensively used in consumer electronics. They are present in every smartphone or tablet device to detect the orientation of the device. This increased usage in consumer electronics has led to a large share of the accelerometer segment. They are also used in consumer electronics to detect whether the device is falling or has been dropped. The displacement sensors market is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period. Displacement sensors are becoming increasingly prevalent in detecting stacked printed circuit boards, automatic doors in elevators and vehicles, among others which are expected to further increase the demand for displacement sensors in the market.
Vibration Sensor Market: By Technology
