Torque Sensor Market – Introduction

Torque sensors have been witnessing a rapid rate of adoption in the machines such as gearboxes, engines, crankshafts, and electric motors that ensure the economical use of fuel, thereby saving hefty fuel costs. The torque sensor market reached a value of US$ 9 Bn in 2018 and is expected to grow at a steady pace in the coming years.

Significant drivers delivering sustained growth to the torque sensor market include increasing demand for

highly efficient vehicles arising from the growing population. With the rise in the disposable income of the consumers, sales of automotive with upgraded features have been on a notable surge. As a result of which, the automotive manufacturers have been employing torque sensors in their products to enhance the consumer experience.

Among all the torque sensing technologies, optical technologies have been witnessing a high demand on the back of their ability to offer higher sensitivity and electrical passiveness as compared to the classic torque sensors. However, the high cost of optical technologies has been causing a hesitance among the end-users for the adoption of torque sensors. As a result, the manufacturers of the torque sensors are focusing on the development of advanced and cost-efficient technologies, which will enhance the desirability of these components, thereby increasing the sales of the torque sensors.

Torque Sensor Market – Dynamics

Applications of Torque Sensors in Electric Power Steering to Steer the Sales

Electric power steering systems have been gaining popularity over customary hydraulic systems, owing to the assistance provided by them even when the engine stalls. Such steering systems are said to cut down the need for the drive belt, hoses, and pump, which further simplifies the steering functions. With the growing adoption of the electric power steering system, there has been a rise in the demand for highly accurate measurement of steering torques for meeting the safety standards in an automotive. This is expected to bode well for the growth of the torque sensor market in the forthcoming years.

Complexity on the Installation of Torque Sensor to Limit the Adoption Rate

For a number of electric and mechanical applications, a torque can function as a mechanical fuse to obtain precise measurements.

However, proper installation of torque sensors becomes of utmost importance for the proper functioning of any machine. Any error in the installation of the components can permanently cause damage to the machine, thereby taking a toll on the time and cost pertaining to the components used. In addition to this, torque sensors are extremely sensitive and can be overloaded or wrecked easily, thereby requiring efficient handling. These characteristics of the measuring devices are anticipated to impede the growth of the torque sensors market in the upcoming years.
