Vibration Sensor Market Analysis

The vibration Sensor Market is expected to register a CAGR of 7.3% during the forecast period. Monitoring and analyzing vibrations of machines or other critical equipment in various industrial sectors have become a very crucial part of the predictive maintenance program. Typical applications demand vibration measurements in the horizontal, vertical, and axial directions on both the inboard and outboard motor bearings.

  • In an increasingly competitive industrial market, where new features are required to produce ''smarter'' tools, monitoring the condition of various components has become a fundamental need. This is expected to boost the demand for vibration sensors over the forecast period.
  • With the advent of industry 4.0, organizations have started being more bent on automation and predictive maintenance that allows them to prematurely detect the wear and tear in the machines and equipment. This is expected to boost the adoption of such sensors over the forecast period.
  • In March 2022, Flusso announced the world's smallest air velocity sensor. The FLS122 has a footprint of only 3.5 by 3.5 mm, making it 80% smaller than today's smallest competitive device. Flusso's FLS122 sensor was designed specifically for board-mounted air velocity measurements for thermal management and filter monitoring in some of the most space-constrained and challenging environments.
  • In addition, the demand for vibration sensors has been rising for the last few years, and compatibility concerns, especially with old equipment, have been identified as major challenges affecting the market.
  • Furthermore, in March 2022, Spectris plc, a supplier of high-tech precision instruments, announced the acquisition of Dytran Instruments, a leading designer and manufacturer of piezo-electric and MEMS-based accelerometers and sensors. The USD 82 million deal will enable both companies to leverage complementary capabilities to improve customer offerings and accelerate product development.
  • The increasing adoption of smart devices, such as smartphones, wearables, smart appliances, and implantable or ingestible medical devices, among others that use accelerometers, is expected to drive the growth of the vibration sensors market over the forecast period.
  • For instance, in March 2022, Samsung launched the new Galaxy A-series Smartphone. An octa-core processor powers Samsung Galaxy A53 5G. It has a 120 Hz refresh rate and 6.50-inch touchscreen display, offering a resolution of 1080×2400 pixels at a pixel density of 407 pixels per inch. In Addition, Connectivity options on the Samsung Galaxy A53 5G include Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, GPS, Bluetooth v5.10, NFC, USB Type-C, 3G, 4G, and 5G. Sensors on the phone include an accelerometer, ambient light sensor, compass/ magnetometer, gyroscope, proximity sensor, and in-display fingerprint sensor.
  • Vibration gyroscope sensors are also widely adopted for electronic stability control systems of vehicles, car navigation systems, motion-sensing for mobile games, camera-shake detection systems in digital cameras, robotic systems, radio-controlled helicopters, etc. In the last few years, smartphones have witnessed MEMS gyroscopes' great success, owing to their low-cost, miniature size, and lightweight.
  • Furthermore, owing to the COVID-19 outbreak, the global supply chain and demand for multiple products have experienced disruption. Moreover, due to the production shutdown in China, numerous industries have observed a supply shortage of various products. However, market vendors are trying to provide services to enterprises, which is helping them get revenues.

Vibration Sensor Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Vibration Sensor Market according to our research experts:

Aerospace & Defense End User to Hold Significant Share

  • Increased situational awareness to drive operations, cost-effective maintenance, and asset utilization are some of the key factors driving the demand for aircraft health monitoring systems.
  • Moreover, in March 2021, the National Institute of Technology (NIST) researchers developed a new type of accelerometer based on opting mechanical and lasers principles. This sensor consists of a pair of silicon chips and could find use in spacecraft and aircraft, self-driving cars, tablets, and smartphones, which will further drive the market growth.
  • The passenger traffic in Asia and other major aviation markets, such as the United Kingdom, Europe, and Germany, has witnessed growth in terms of the number of passengers and aircraft movements, which is expected to drive the market during the forecast period.
  • For instance, according to Boeing, the market size of India's commercial aviation services industry is expected to witness 3.7 trillion U.S. dollars by 2040, creating demand for an additional 2,200 new commercial aircraft in the next 20 years. As a result, the expanding airline industry is expected to increase the demand for vibration sensors, driving the market during the forecast period.
  • Turbine engine failures are the primary cause of mechanical failures, increasing costs; hence, users are increasingly turning to prognostic health management (PHM) systems to prevent these losses and reduce maintenance costs. As vibration is the most common health monitoring parameter in the aerospace engine industry, the development of PHM systems is likely to directly impact the growth of vibration sensors.

Asia Pacific to Hold Significant Share in Europe Region

  • The Asia Pacific is home to the largest aerospace industry. According to IBEF, The Indian aerospace & defense (A&D) market is projected to reach USD 70 billion by 2030.
  • Advanced vibration sensors are used for harsh applications, like aircraft rotor track and balance (RT&B). They also serve applications in aircraft design and testing, offering DC-response (static) and AC-response (dynamic) types of accelerometers.
  • The growth of consumer electronics in the country has led to a rise in vibration sensors being integrated into appliances. Furthermore, according to the India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), the Indian appliances and consumer electronics (ACE) market is expected to register a 9% CAGR to reach INR 3.15 trillion (USD 48.37 billion) in 2022. This is expected to boost the vibration sensors market growth over the forecast period.
  • In addition, the increase in demand for oil in the country is expected to lead to a rise in local refineries and exploration sites to fulfill the need, thus driving the demand for vibration sensors in the oil and gas industry.
  • Manufacturing has emerged as one of the sectors showing high growth in the country. The country's Prime Minister's ambitious 'Make in India' program, meant to position India as a leading manufacturing hub and give global recognition to the Indian economy, is expected to drive the adoption of automation and smart technologies in the manufacturing sector.
