Research and Markets: Global Acoustic Wave Sensor (SAW And BAW) Market - Forecast, Trend & Analysis - Segmentation By Sensing Parameters, Applications And Geography (2013-2018)
DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/x93dxd/global_acoustic)
has announced the addition of the "Global
Acoustic Wave Sensor (SAW And BAW) Market - Forecast, Trend & Analysis -
Segmentation By Sensing Parameters [Pressure, Temperature, Mass, Torque,
Humidity, Chemical, Touch, Others], Applications And Geography
(2013-2018)" report to their offering.
Acoustic wave sensors are expected to show good growth across different
application segments due to their competitive advantages over the other
technologies. As of now, temperature, pressure, torque, and viscosity
sensors are the only ones to have reached complete commercialization but
we predict a healthy growth of the other sensors as well in future as
more applications of acoustic wave sensors get realized in the years to
come. Acoustic wave temperature and pressure sensors are increasingly
used in automotive and industrial applications with some applications of
torque sensors as well.
Due to lesser response time, passive nature, and wireless operation,
acoustic wave sensors are gradually replacing conventional sensors for a
variety of applications sch as industrial, automotives, consumer
electronics, military and aerospace, and healthcare segments. There has
been a growth in the automotive industry that uses sensors to a greater
extent from applications such as TPMS (Tyre Pressure Monitoring System),
engine management, emission control to monitoring of air volume, torque
sensing, exhaust gas pressure of EGR system. Adoption of acoustic wave
sensors in many application segments will add on to their consumption in
the future. Safety related mandates in regions like North America and
Europe are driving the growth of sensors in automotive industry.
Technological advancement is opening new doors for the growth of
acoustic wave sensors especially in automotive and medical applications.
Penetration of MEMS technology in acoustic wave sensing in future is
expected to play a major role in the overall market in the years to come.
The market size of acoustic wave sensors in the year 2012 was $256.0
million and is expected to reach $721.13 million units by 2018, at an
estimated CAGR of 20.2%. In terms of volume, the unit shipment for
acoustic wave sensors was 848.81 million units in the year 2012 and is
expected to reach 2,985.40 million units by 2018, at an estimated CAGR
of 24.8% from 2013 to 2018.
