The Europe acoustic sensors market is projected to reach USD 1.55 billion by 2018 at a CAGR of 12.16% over the period 2014-2020. Safety related mandates in Europe that use sensors in the automotive industry, technological advancements, low manufacturing cost, and wireless and passive nature of the products are the major drivers for the lucrative growth of the acoustic wave sensors.
The growth of telecommunications market is another key factor contributing to the growth of the market. However, low mass sensitivity and conventional applications use other sensors instead of SAW sensors hindering the growth of the market. Growing demand for reliable, low cost and high performance sensors lead to the development of latest technologies like microtechnology and nanotechnology, offering miniaturization and mass production opportunities. The temperature, pressure, torque, and viscosity sensors are most widely used, but there will be a healthy growth of other sensors that measure mass and humidity in the future.
The acoustic sensors market is segmented on the basis of type, sensing parameters, and end user industry. Europe accounted for the second highest market share of 27% of the global market in 2014. The largest application segment for acoustic wave sensors is the industrial segment, followed by the automotive segment with a growing number of applications of these sensors in TPMS, emission control, and torque measurement. The emerging segment for acoustic wave sensors is the healthcare industry, where there is an enormous need for wireless sensors.
